    Question What does "I shake it off" mean from Taylor Swift's song?

    Hi, guys. I think you know that song. When Taylor Swift sings "I shake it off" what does she mean with that?

    Here it is the lines:

    Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
    And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
    Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
    I shake it off, I shake it off

    Shake it off, I shake it off,
    I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
    I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
    I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off


    I've heard "shake it off" means forget something, let it go.. BUT, I read on the Internet that in this context shake if off does'n mean it. It means "I don't mind... I don't care what people says about me"

    I'm so confused now... which one meaning is it correct?
