There’s a new Taylor Swift album around the corner – 1989, her first all-out pop album is due in October – so of course that means everyone will be asking one question: which ex-boyfriend is she singing about this time? Well, there’s Harry Styles (of One Direction), of course – and it seems like there’s more than one song about him. In a recent interview, Taylor admits there’s a song called I Wish You Would about an ex who bought a house very close to hers, and she implies that the ex in question is Mr Styles.
But that’s not all – there’s also a song about “a guy with slicked back hair” and it’s called (believe it or not) Style. Subtle, Tay Tay. Subtle.
We definitely can’t wait for this album – you may have already heard Shake It Off – and we know we’ll be spending some time decoding which song is about who. There’s also a track in there called Bad Blood that’s about a female singer who Taylor calls a “straight-up enemy” since she tried to sabotage one of Taylor’s tours by hiring out everyone from under her. She seems to be talking about Katy Perry, although she won’t explicitly name her since she doesn’t want it to be a “gossip-fest.”
Psst! If you’re a Taylor fan – or if you’re just genuinely curious about what the lady’s like – then read the Rolling Stone cover story. It’s fascinating and well-written!
