Singer gets mixed response from former boyfriends
Taylor Swift has revealed that the ex she penned a whole album about wasn’t upset by her revealing lyrics.
The singer is believed to have written most of her latest record Red about former boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, 32, who she dated in late 2010 before breaking up the following year.
I heard from the guy that most of Red is about,’ says Taylor, 23.
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.” That was nice.’
Taylor’s notorious for writing songs about her exes.
The track I Knew You Were Trouble is rumoured to be about Harry Styles, 19, who Taylor split from earlier this year after a whirlwind romance.
But not every ex has been accepting of her lyrics.
[The Red guy’s response was] nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy emails I got from this one dude,’ Taylor tells New York Magazine.
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.
So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?’
