Taylor Swift might be known for her chart topping hits, but she’s also known to get inspiration for those songs from the many famous boyfriends she’s been with. From Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal, Swift has had her fair share in dating some of Hollywood’s A-list stars.
Here are ten songs from Taylor Swift that have been inspired by her ex-boyfriends.
1. “We Are Never Getting Back Together”
The song is reportedly about Jake Gyllenhaal who she dated back in 2010. In her video, she wears a scarf that resembles the one she wore on a date with the actor.
2. “Forever & Always”
The 2008 song was said to be about Joe Jonas, which was released after she broke up with the former Jonas Brothers star.
3. “Last Kiss”
Looking at the hidden meaning in the words to this slow song, Swift’s fans believed the song was also about Joe Jonas.
4. “Dear John”
It’s no surprise the song is about ex-boyfriend John Mayer. The star even called Swift’s decision to write a song about their relationship, “lousy.”
The name of this 2014 track is a dead giveaway that it’s about One Direction’s Harry Styles, who Swift dated in 2012-2013.
6. “Out of the Woods”
This song is also said to be about Harry Styles. According to Buzz Feed, Swift mentions paper planes in the song, which reportedly symbolized Styles’ paper plane necklace, which he always wore back in 2012.
The song “Mine” is rumored to be about former “Glee” star Cory Monteith. Swift previously told Yahoo that the song was about a guy, “that I just barely knew put his arm around me by the water, and I saw the entire relationship flash before my eyes.”
8. “Back To December”
The song, which is on her “Speak Now” record, is about Taylor Lautner, although neither of the stars have commented about the inspiration for the track.
9. “You Belong With Me”
Swift briefly dated Lucas Till, her co-star for her music video, who stated that he and the star didn’t work out because he “really just liked her as a friend.”
10. “Stay Stay Stay”
The song lyrics state, “That’s when you came in wearing a football helmet,” which is rumored to be about Conor Kennedy, who played football for Deerfield Academy.
