A very grownup Taylor is taking revenge on all the jerks that did her wrong on her new album and she sounds better than ever!

After a long, long wait, Taylor Swift is back with her new album Speak Now, out Oct. 25, two years after the release of her last album Fearless – and it is without a doubt her best yet! The 20-year-old country crooner, who has never been shy about putting her real life experiences into her songs, speaks out about everyone from Joe Jonas and John Mayer to Kanye West and Taylor Lautner. This young lady definitely DID speak on this new album!

The one song everyone is bound to be taking about is “Dear John,” which is over six minutes of a very, very angry Taylor taking revenge on a former lover. “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with,” Taylor asks this former flame, lamenting, “The girl in the dress/Cried the whole way home.” Said to be written about ex John, this song is guaranteed to be every girl’s new breakup anthem!

“The Story of Us” meanwhile is old school Taylor, with a fun catchy beat and great lyrics. Taylor plays the role of a girl still in love with her ex who just can’t bring herself to get back with them. In this song Taylor seems to play the one who did her ex wrong, a complete role reversal from the other songs on the album, and the singer has said she wrote the song about former boyfriend Taylor.

“Innocent,” which she performed on the MTV Video Music Awards is her tribute to the 2009 Video Music Awards, when rapper Kanye stormed the stage and took the mic from her during an acceptance speech. Surprisingly, Taylor seems to have no ill will towards Kanye in the song, and instead seems to be reassuring him that she understands and doesn’t judge him for what happened.

The other sure to be controversial song on Taylor’s new album is the anthem “Better Than Revenge” where she comes out and belts, “She’s an actress/But she’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress.” Given her feelings towards Joe and John we must assume it is about one of their girlfriends but who? Jennifer Aniston? Camilla Belle?

Of course, these are just a few of Taylor’s songs on the album and each elicits such strong response and seems to have such a strong basis in Taylor’s actual life, something we now know all about as opposed to a few years ago when she released Fearless, that you could write about each endlessly.

Put simply, she may already be the most popular female singer in the world these days but this album seems poised to make her even bigger. And, if any artist is going to have a shot at selling one million albums in their first week any time soon, it is most definitely going to be Ms. Swift.

What do you think HollywoodLifers? Will you be buying Taylor’s CD this week?

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I would never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely vast for me. I’m looking ahead for your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

There’s a bunch of haters out there.. She’s not being immature. She’s being quite mature actually. I’ve been in a few of her situations and she’s done something that I would have never done. She’s kept their names quiet and only talked about it in a song.. That’s mature for 20..

Very grown up?? this doesn’t make her look grown up at all..on the contrary, she sounds like an immature, whiny 16 year old.

KFrankly all you jealous misfits. I love Taylor swift and all of her music. you all listen to all genre s and the lyrics never seen to give you anything to complain about. But this rising star uses her experiences for her music ( which is increditable) and you have to degrade her. I think you should listen to her song on “speak now”. THat song is to you….”why you gotta be so mean!” 57 yr. Old who love taylor!

Speak now doesn’t have alot of ‘mean’ songs.
It has 2.
Story of us is about John also.Proof is in the cd book.
Back to december is about Taylor.Proof is the cd book.
Better than revenge is about Camilla.Taylor on her website said its about a girl stealing your boyfriend on her .And also because she talks about how it was summer and she and joe were together during the summer.
Last kiss is about Joe.Proof in the cd book.

Take a chill pill, Taylor isn’t dissing anyone by name, she doesn’t drop one single name the entire album. Give it up haters, she’s the biggest star in music.

EXCELLENT ROLL MODel. Grow us people. She has great lyrics. HAs a way with words. What the problem is look at what you say and how you say it. She is not the problem. You are.

I would hope Taylor is dissing Jennifer Aniston because I was thinking she’s kind of turning into her. Dating guys, getting dumped and then publicly taking about it to keep her career afloat. Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston for he younger generation.

She´s surely not innocent as she looks. Sometimes there are more dangerous than trashy women artists nowadays, at least with those cheap ones, we know what to expect! That is the advantage by having an innocent look, you believe and expect they will do no wrong, but you will be surprised. Many of them are actually the most experienced of them all.
