This story isn’t so much a surprise as it is an LOL moment, since Taylor Swift has finally admitted that she wrote her hit single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ about none other than One Direction singer and ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
From The Sunday Times (via DigitalSpy)
“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’,” Swift told The Sunday Times magazine.
Asked how she felt knowing Styles was watching the performance [at the 2013 BRIT awards] in the audience, she replied: “Well, it’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching.”
Oh, snap! The one thing about this that doesn’t make sense, though, is the timeline. Didn’t Taylor and Harry start dating well after the Red album, which ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ appears on, was released? How could it have been about him when she wrote it ages before they even met/got together?
Whatever, we’ll just go with it.
