Taylor Swift is known for writing songs about the ghosts of boyfriends past, and Harry Styles relationship is no exception!
Taylor Swift all-but-explicitly-states that her racy Brits performance was directed at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
The country singer certainly showed One Direction’s Harry Styles exactly what he was missing when she took to the stage last month for a scantily clad performance of Trouble.
When asked about the racy performance in a recent interview, Swift, who has a habit of writing songs about the ghosts of boyfriends past, explained: ‘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.
‘Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song.’ It’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is about is standing by the side of the stage watching.’
So she might not have called him out directly by name, but we don’t recall seeing Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal or John Mayer there that night. No siree!
The hit single Trouble, off her hugely successful Red album, contains the rather scathing lyrics: ‘I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright. But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?
‘And when I fell hard you took a step back, without me, without me, without me.’
The chorus continues: ‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in. So shame on me now. Flew me to places I’d never been. Til you put me down.’
And it gets worse, Hazza, with the line: ‘A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be. And now I see, now I see, now I see.’
Country singer Taylor has experienced a great deal of heartbreak in all her 23 years and her original recations to her break-ups can be seen in just about all her songs.
After her fling with John Mayer ended she spewed out lines like, ‘Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with? The girl in the dress cried the whole way home. I should’ve known.’ Geez.
