When you watch Taylor Swift's Story of Us video, keep in mind that outside those library walls a tornado was bearing down! Speaking of filming her new video, the 21-year-old told MTV News, "There were a few complications. This was actually when a bunch of tornadoes were hitting Nashville."
Taylor Swift continues, "We had to hide. All of us, we had to hide in a room where there were no windows, so that was a little bit crazy. [But] other than that, it was incredibly fun."
Taylor's tornado close-call during the Story of Us video shoot inspired her to perform a benefit concert in Nashville. "We were rehearsing and one of my dancers, who is from Alabama, came in and showed us a picture of a cyclone in her backyard and we were just floored."
Not one to sit idly by, Taylor Swift says, "I just felt, if there was any way that I could help with the damage done and all the families who've lost their homes, then I had to think of one. It came to me really quickly that here we are at a rehearsal in an arena where there are empty seats. What if we filled those empty seats and gave all the proceeds to the victims of the tornadoes?"
The $750,000 proceeds from the tornado benefit show were given to assist the area.
