“I’m really out of breath. I was really going hard with the Wrecking Ball thing. My lucky number is 13, and so far you guys have made 2013 the most magical year of my life so far. I can not thank you enough. This validates that, if you voted for this, that we are heartbroken the same way and we fall in love the same way and we are happy the same way and the fact that you would listen to my music means that were on the same page and I’m 23 and I have no idea what’s going to happen to me in my life. But I figure, If you decided on something as wonderful as this then were pretty much in it together aren’t we? I love you so much. Thank you for this. It’s unbelievable.”
You know, with this album, I want to thank Big Machine Records and Universal Music for allowing me to make an album… Red is very different than any album I’ve made before and the reason that I was able to do that is because of the fans. I cannot believe what you’ve done in the last year.
