The sole purpose of a Taylor Swift song, I’ve gathered, is to make her exes uncomfortable.
Taylor told USA Today that the reason she penned new track “Never Ever” was to make an ex boyfriend cringe whenever he heard it on the radio.
“So I made a song that I knew would absolutely drive him crazy when he heard it on the radio. Not only would it hopefully be played a lot, so that he’d have to hear it, but it’s the opposite of the kind of music that he was trying to make me feel inferior to,” says Swift.
Wait, so who is the ex? Jake Gyllenhaal? Joe Jonas? John Mayer?
Taylor says this particular dude always “made me feel like I wasn’t as good or as relevant as these hipster bands he listened to.”
Oh she’s totally talking about John Mayer.
When asked why she wanted to torment he ex, she said, “because that’s fun.”
Taylor’s new album RED also features more sexually charged songs than ever before. The song “Treacherous” features the line, “I’ll do anything you say if you say it with your hands.”
Oh hay gurrll, be careful, you’re starting to sound like a Rihanna song.
Taylor also says her songs play out like celebrity gossip because she doesn’t hold back in the lyrics.
“[My fans] know whatever I'm going through now, they'll hear about it on a record someday. They'll hear the real story. There's a little bit of lag time. It's not as instant as going on a gossip blog. But it's much more accurate."
