“champagne problems,” tells the story of a woman who shocks her would-be fiancé and their loved ones by turning down a marriage proposal right before Christmas. In a post about evermore, Taylor stated that the song depicts “longtime college sweethearts who had very different plans for the same night, one to end it and one who brought a ring.”
Champagne Problems is one of the best songs on the whole album, lyrically and poetically. I could have used so much imagery from the lyrics but the part which kept repeating in my head was “your heart was glass, I dropped it” I kept on thinking how I could create artwork for these lyrics, in the end, I found an old champagne glass wrapped it in a towel and smashed it. I took photos of the smashed glass and used the colour pallet to create an artwork in the same technique I have used for my new media artworks previously.
The blue colour pallet conveys the heartbreak and loss that the song creates🥂
