Taylor Swift has spoken of the "complete triumph" she felt when her friend Ed Sheeran texted her from a nightclub to say one of her songs had been played several times.
The American singer, known for her songs about break-ups and former loves, said she has always wanted to do a song that made people dance.
"Ed texted me last night," she told the Sunday Times Culture magazine, "and went, 'I'm in a club, it's 3am, they've played Shake It Off three times in the three hours I've been here.' And I had this feeling of complete triumph, of victory. I've always wanted to write a song that people would dance to.
"I've done songs that people have sat and listened to, and reflected on the thoughts it produced in them; or songs people would cry to when they were going through a break-up. But to do a song where people's first instinct is to dance, oh, I've wanted that for so long."
Shake It Off reached number 2 in the UK singles chart, and topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.
Rebecca Ferguson has given birth to a "perfect" baby girl eight months after she appeared to collapse on live television.
The singer, who rose to fame on ITV's The X Factor, announced the news on Twitter and said the newborn called Arabella was "like a beautiful little doll".
In a series of tweets yesterday, she said: "I don't want to sleep I just want to look at her ... thank you for all the love and support."
This morning, Ferguson tweeted that she was "such a happy mum" and added: "Can't put her down - she is ruined already".
Ferguson's manager Jonathan Shalit said baby Arabella, who weighs 6lb 14oz, was "lovely".
Eight months ago in February, the singer appeared to collapse as she finished a performance on Loose Women.
Later Ferguson said online: "I am feeling much better. Will rest today. So sorry to worry everybody. I fought through that song, but at the end had nothing left."
