While appearing on Thursday night's 2019 NFL Draft on ABC, Swift opened up to Robin Roberts about the meaning of the song.

"'ME!' is a song about embracing your individuality and really celebrating it and owning it," Swift explained. "I think that with a pop song we have the ability to get a melody stuck in people's heads, and I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves, not worse."
