Maybe Taylor Swift‘s new songs on “Red” are harder to puzzle out than we thought. Some of them seem pretty self-explanatory (and a lot seem to be about Jake Gyllenhaal), but the 22-year-old songstress claims that our guesses might be way off.
“There are songs that people play the guessing game with. It’s kind of the king that happens when I put out a record,” Swift tells Vh1. “Either blogs or fans will make guesses because I write really detailed songs. I always have and I just never wanted to change that aspect of writing. Because the magnifying glass is wider.”
She continues, “There are a lot of songs that people think is about this dude, but it’s really not, it’s actually about this guy you have no idea I even dated. Or you’ll sit there and go ‘that song was inspired by three different situations with three different people.’ And you don’t ever want to go out there and be like, ‘this song is about this guy, first name, last name,’ because it’s just the one piece of the puzzled I have just locked in. I never really talk about who my songs are about.”
Someone we don’t know she dated, huh? Who knows, maybe there could be a song or two about “Glee’s” Cory Monteith on there. Or, if Ellen DeGeneres is to be believed, Zac Efron. Regardless, Swift’s statements only make us want to figure out this puzzle more.
