This semi-autobiographical song was written for Celine Dion by Linda Perry. The former member of 4 Non Blondes also produced the track. Perry has also written and produced hits for a number of other artists, including Pink and Christina Aguilera.
A live recording of this song was included on Celine's 2008 compilation album My Love: Essential Collection. It was taken from the Stockholm leg of the French/Canadian singer's Taking Chances Tour.
Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
