Swifties knew something big was coming when Taylor Swift deleted all of the photos from her Instagram and wiped out her entire Twitter account. But, they didn't know how big. The songstress released her first single in over three years for her new album Reputation. The track is titled, "Look What You Made Me Do" and there's already rampant speculation that it points a finger at Kanye West.
In the event that you've managed to stay out of the Kanye/Taylor drama, we'll recap for you. Basically, Kanye released his song "Famous" where he said he could still have intimate relations with Taylor, that he made her famous and used the derogatory word 'b-tch' to reference her. Not only that, but he said she approved it all. Taylor lashed out and made it clear that she didn't. Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, released tapes of Taylor approving a portion of the lyrics.
Drama, drama, drama. But, clearly, Kim and Kanye had no idea what kind of fire they were playing with. Taylor uses multiple phrases in her new single to drag the rapper; namely teasing the music with a snake, calling out Kanye's tilted stage during his Saint Pablo tour and downright saying the 'old Taylor' is dead. Kanye repeatedly talks about the 'old Kanye' in his music.
Of course, this isn't the first time Taylor has written a song about a guy in her life. Whether she has been romantically involved with them or they just put a sour taste her mouth like Kanye did, no one is safe and this girl is out for blood. We did a little digging and found all of the guys Taylor has ever written about. It's quite the extensive list, to be honest.
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Kanye West?
Well, clearly, this new single "Look What You Made Me Do" is about Ye. But, there's also another one titled, "Innocent." There's not even any guessing we have to do about this song either because Taylor confirmed it. She said about the track, "It was at an awards show, and there had been this falling-out between me and this guy. But, for me, it was important to write a song to him."
Obviously, this is referencing the moment when Kanye ran up on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards and interrupted Taylor's speech. He ranted about how Beyonce should have won over Taylor. This is where the feud between Taylor and Kanye started and oh, how it's grown into something completely massive.
Some of the lyrics from the song read, "It's okay, life is a tough crowd / 32, and still growin' up now / Who you are is not what you did. / You're still an innocent."
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Harry Styles?
Taylor's tracks, "Style," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Out of the Woods" are said to be about the One Direction crooner. The lyrics from "Style" that point to Harry read, "Cause you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye/And I got that red lip classic thing that you like/And when we go crashing down, we come back every time/'Cause we never go out of style/We never go out of style."
After performing "I Knew You Were Trouble" at the Grammys, Taylor used a British accent and said, "Well, it's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching."
"Out of the Woods" is also a Harry Styles song. It references paper airplanes flying around and both of them have paper airplane necklaces. Apparently, that was enough to solidify the fact that this too was for Hazza.
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Joe Jonas?
Taylor allegedly wrote "Better Than Revenge," "Last Kiss," "Forever and Always" and "Holy Ground" about the DNCE frontman. Taylor made it known she didn't like that Camille Belle came between her and Joe.
These lyrics in "Better Than Revenge" prove that. They read, "She's not a saint / And she's not what you think / She's an actress, whoa / She's better known / For the things that she does / On the mattress, whoa." Fans also think "Last Kiss" points to Joe just because of when the song was released and the timing of their relationship including when they got together and broke up.
She really didn't let Joe catch a break. "Forever and Always" is about Joe because there are lyrics about staring at a phone. As we all know, Taylor revealed on The Ellen Degeneres Show that Joe broke up with her over the phone and she said this song was the one she wrote after their breakup.
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Jake Gyllenhaal?
"All Too Well" hands down holds the most evidence that it's about the actor, with the play by play of a trip they took together. We ALL know about that scarf. Plus, Tay is know for putting hidden messages in the lyric booklet that comes with her albums. For this tune, it was "Maple Lattes," which is most likely what they were drinking in the one photo we got from their time together, walking arm in arm with a hot drinks in their hands. Case freaking CLOSED.
What song did Taylor Swift write about John Mayer?
Taylor apparently wrote, "Dear John" about the musical mastermind. Fans think so because, well, first of all, his name is in the title. But, second of all, these lyrics were pretty telling. "Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone / Don't you think I was too young / To be messed with?"
John even confirmed that the song was about him when he outright said he didn't deserve that. Okay, bad blood still stands, we see.
What song did Taylor Swift write about Cory Monteith?
Fans think T. Swift penned "Mine" after Glee star, Cory. Why? Because the lyrics talk about dating a boy Taylor barely knew AKA this has to be Cory! The pair dated for just a month and we can't think of any other relationship she's had that has lasted shorter than that.
What song did Taylor Swift write about Taylor Lautner?
We kind of wish there was more than just one. But, alas, all we have is "Back to December" to reminisce the best Taylor/Taylor relationship there ever was. There are lots of clues here. The telling lyrics read, "I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile." They also talk about this boy giving Taylor roses on a December night only for her to let them die. So, obviously, this can be anyone. BUT, Taylor confirmed it himself.
Something to note: this is the only song she's ever written that is an apology to a guy she once dated.
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Brandon Borcello?
Brandon was someone Taylor knew way back in high school. It's rumored that she wrote three songs about him, "Tim McGraw", "Our Song" and "Fifteen." The strongest case here is for "Tim McGraw" because she reportedly wanted him to think of her whenever he heard Tim McGraw's music while in college.
Also, the lyrics, "But in a box beneath my bed / Is a letter that you never read / From three summers back." Obviously, they had known each other for awhile if she was talking about three summers back at such a young age in her music career.
What song did Taylor Swift write about Draw Hardwick?
OBVIOUSLY, "Teardrops on My Guitar" has Drew's name written all over it – literally and figuratively. It's rumored that Tay had a crush on him in school. The lyrics go, "Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see / That I want and I'm needing everything that we should be." If you ask us, Drew should have jumped on this relationship when he had the chance. Looks like he missed the boat!
What song did Taylor Swift write about Sam Armstrong?
"Should of Said No" is Sam's anthem. So, basically, Sam allegedly cheated on Taylor in high school which is why this song could definitely be about him. The lyrics say, "You should've said, 'No,' you should've gone home / You should've thought twice 'fore you let it all go." If you ask us, she's outing him for staying somewhere he shouldn't be – like with another girl instead of her.
Do you sense a pattern here? Taylor didn't just drag her famous ex-boyfriends through the mud, but also her non-famous exes too!
What songs did Taylor Swift write about Conor Kennedy?
She wrote "Begin Again" most likely about Conor and "Starlight" was inspired by his grandparents' love story, since the hidden message she wrote for that tune is "For Ethel," and yep, that's his grandmother's name. Taylor told Ryan Seacrest that with "Begin Again" though, the relationship is about starting over with a new guy. At the time, she was completely head over heels for Conor. The lyrics say, "And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid / I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did."
So, in a turn of events, this is actually a cute song. She didn't drag Conor in the slightest.
What song did Taylor Swift write about Owl City's Adam Young?
She wrote "Enchanted" about him and he knew it. Taylor and Adam never dated but they did meet each other randomly. The song is about a chance meeting, so if the shoe freaking fits! Adam even allegedly sent her an email after their introduction saying that he was 'wonderstruck' by her presence. In true Taylor fashion, she used the word 'wonderstruck' in her song. Cute!
What song did Taylor Swift write about Love and Theft's Stephen Liles?
The song "Hey Stephen" is about this rock star. Again, Taylor and Stephen never dated. But, they did tour together and she must've just had a crush on him. It happens! We find it hard to believe Stephen would have done anything to create tension with Taylor anyway.
What song did Taylor Swift write about Jordan Alford?
"Picture to Burn" was a total sh-t storm of a song and it was all about Jordan. He was another one of Taylor's high school boyfriends who apparently broke up with her for one of her friends. Yikes. Now, he or the world will never be able to forget what he did. #SorryNotSorry
