Taylor Swift spent her entire career making catchy hits, like “Shake It Off.” But she has also been vulnerable by writing about her own experiences on every album. Of course that involves her romantic life, and there have been many people who have done great detective work to find out which ex is behind each song.
The blonde has had many love interests that she has been photographed with over the years. But she has actually tried to keep quiet about those relationships in interviews. Instead, she would rather let her songs speak for themselves. So which celebrity exes inspired her songs? Here are eights songs that have a very famous inspiration behind them.
1. Harry Styles – “Out of the Woods”
The two dated in December 2012 and broke up three months later. “Out of the Woods” captured a very hopeless relationship. Many have said that it is about the One Directioner. She played the song at The Grammy Museum and went deeper into the inspiration for the song. “I’m going to play you a song that I wrote about a relationship that I was in that the number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety,” she said, according to Daily Mail before playing the song.
“Because it felt very fragile,” she continued, “it felt very tentative. And it always felt like, ‘Okay, what’s the next road block? What’s the next thing that’s gonna deter this? How long do we have before this turns into just an awful mess and we break up? Is it a month? Is it three days?’” She was probably right to feel that way since the spark between them burned out quickly.
