Taylor Swift has opened up about her ex-boyfriends' reactions to her songs – that regularly feature them and the various ways they have wronged her.
Singles including I Knew You Were Trouble, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, White Horse and Begin Again feature Taylor singing about her past relationships and various different exes – Connor Kennedy, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Meyer to name a few. There is a song called Dear John, for heaven sake!
Now although she didn’t mention any names, the 23-year-old singer chatted to Vulture magazine about the reactions some of her former loves have had. It must have been quite a shock to the system for them!
She said: “I heard from the guy that most of Red is about. He was like, 'I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.'
But not all of her past beaus were pleased, as she continued: “That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy emails I got from this one dude. It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it – but one of those people happened to be a songwriter.”
Could it be Katy Perry's current beau John Mayer who sent the ranting messages?
Or Jake Gyllenhaal - after all he did smash a mirror with his bare hands the other day whilst acting, so it doesn’t seem beyond him to send a passionate email about how hurt he was that he and Taylor are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together.
Taylor also revealed that she wouldn't write about a short-lived relationship if it didn’t mean anything to her, stating: “I only write songs about crazy love. If I go on two dates with a guy and we don’t click, I’m not writing a song about that. It didn’t matter in the emotional grand scheme of things.
“There’s a lot that goes on in daily life that isn’t really worth turning into a verse and a chorus.”
Since she was only dating Harry for a month, does that mean we’re not likely to be hearing songs about him? But we wanted her to!
