Not that you didn't know this already, but Taylor Swift has admitted that her hit song "I Knew You Were Trouble" was written about ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. Swift explained that she channeled her anger toward the One Direction member while performing the song at the BRIT Awards last month, telling The Times of London magazine: "It's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is about is standing by the side of the stage watching." She also added about the performance: "You're balancing the analytical side of your brain, which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying, 'Feel everything you're singing, and show it on your face.'"
That's cool. I'm not gonna hate if writing and performing music is TSwift's form of catharsis. But one eensy thing: Taylor reportedly went after Harry after meeting him at the Kids' Choice Awards. So maybe she was trouble when she walked in?
Following her summertime split with Conor Kennedy, Taylor supposedly developed a serious crush on Styles when she met him at the awards ceremony the following March. One can surmise (if they like surmising mundane things of this low-brow nature) that since she's the one who developed a crush first, she's the one who initiated the relationship in some way, shape, or form. So yeah, Harry isn't the only troublemaker.
If Taylor Swift wants to pen songs about her failed relationships, whatever -- you write what you know. But she shouldn't expect these breakups to be pleasant and/or adult-like if this is the route she chooses. I mean, would you like someone directly and indirectly publicly mocking you constantly after you called it quits? Obvs, no. And neither does Harry.
Styles is supposedly sorry he ever got involved with Taylor in the first place, because dude had no idea what a dragged out mess their breakup would be. A source recently said: "Harry just doesn't know what to expect. It wasn't the most amicable of splits. [He wants to] get on with his life. Perhaps something that Taylor should consider too."
Meow. But ... kind of true? Move on already, Taylor.
Do you think Taylor should move on with her life?
