Unfortunately for Jake, because of a feud with her old label, Taylor has taken on re-recording her first six albums. Knowing that “All Too Well” is a fan favorite, she released the previously unheard, unedited 10-minute version of the song.
The song, as well as a short film Swift wrote and directed, both emphasize the age difference and power imbalance between the two, with heartbreaking lines like “I’ll get older, but your lovers stay my age” When this one hit Spotify, Swifties and non-Swifties alike all went after Jake and with good reason.
Addressing Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo in "Nothing New"
Ironically, "Nothing New" is a more recent song, released in 2021 when Swift rerecorded her 2012 album "Red." The track was originally written by 22-year-old Taylor who was already feeling like old news in Hollywood. Still, many think the bridge in the song is a direct reference to singers like Billy Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo who already broke some of Tay's records.
In the bridge, Swift describes the experience of meeting a young girl who already knows how to succeed as a singer, all thanks to Swift who paved the way. Swift knows she should be happy, but it just makes her feel old. We get it, sis!
Loving Gyllenhaal Felt "Red"
Gyllenhaal plays a role in both the Marvel and the Taylor Cinematic Universe. Swift was incredibly hurt by JG, which inspired one of her most successful albums, "Red." The titular song is about what it felt like to love and lose Jake, which is something we are all dying to know!
Well, the singer says it was like "Driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street/Faster than the wind, passionate as sin, ending so suddenly." Damn, that sounds good! It has been rumored that J secretly listens to the album from time to time, and with lines like that, can you really blame him?
Calling Out Joe Jonas for Acting Like He Was "Mr. Perfectly Fine"
The problem with dating Taylor is that you can end up in one of her songs even years later. For her, it's the gift that keeps on giving. For her exes, it's an ongoing PR problem. Taylor rerecorded her 2008 album "Fearless" and added a couple of new songs she wrote at the time.
"Mr. Perfectly Fine" is about how Mr. Jo likes to act like he's all perfect and fine, but, according to Taylor, he should actually be called "Mr. Change of Heart", "Mr. Casually Cruel", and "Mr. Insincere Apology so he doesn't look the bad guy." Ouch!
Taylor's Tragic 21st Birthday in "The Moment I Knew"
This is a song that Taylor has never performed live. Rumor has it, it's just too painful, as it's about how Jake never showed up for her 21st birthday. The audacity of this man! Tay describes how she kept looking at the door waiting for Jake to show but he never did, which led to her crying in front of all of her friends.
This was the moment she knew Jake and her were never meant to be and that she should probably find a man who'll treat her better.
