About music video for “Babe”:

When it came to shooting the song’s Mad Men-themed video, Nettles played the role of a dutiful housewife who eventually flips the script, reclaiming her power from a cheating husband. For this, she gives Swift (who, in the video, portrayed the redheaded mistress) most of the credit.

“It was all about Taylor, she came up with that concept,” Nettles reveals to Bustle of the clip, which was filmed on the actual set used for the Emmy-winning AMC drama series. “She was really inspired by the song, our recording of it, and she reached out and said I have an idea for the video. We were like, ‘yes, go, go, go, let’s do this.’ All of that was her treatment. I have a feeling we’ll see her directing at some point soon, because she was really good at it.”

About performing with Taylor in Arlington:

At an October Reputation Stadium Tour stop in Arlington, Texas, Swift brought out the duo to perform “Babe” together. (Swift originally co-wrote the track for her 2012 Red album.) Nettles says they “had a ball” performing, but what she didn’t expect was “how loud it was with all the young people screaming” inside Arlington’s AT&T Stadium.

For Bush, what made the biggest impression was seeing “how fluid” Swift is, adding that, while much of the show is rehearsed, “she’s really making up a lot of stuff as she goes, at the same time, which is one of the joys of watching a great performer.”

About Taylor voicing her political opinions:

Bush also notes that seeing “Babe” collaborator Swift’s message encouraging voter registration on social media actually made his children wish they were old enough to vote themselves. “I was like, ‘how about that,’” he recalls. Echoes Nettles, “Taylor has a megaphone that most people don’t have. And I think with great power comes great responsibility, and she was probably feeling that in the sense that it is a time now where everyone’s voice needs to be heard. So I love that she used her very powerful one in that way.”
