Taylor Swift Claims It’s ‘Too Late To Apologize!’ To Whom Was She Singing? VIDEO

The repeat AMA winner surprised the audience by throwing “Apologize” at the end of her performance. Why the added number?

We already covered who Taylor Swift was singing to at the CMA Awards when she performed a haunting version of “Back to December.” However, when she chose to sing it again at the AMAs Nov. 21, we figured it was another public apology to Taylor Lautner. Until the end…

After a couple verses of “Back to December,” Taylor — who was rocking some fierce straight hair and bangs — pushed herself away from the piano and strode center stage before singing the chorus to One Rebublic’s mega hit “Apologize.” Interestingly enough, she changed the lyrics a bit to He said it’s too late to apologize/it’s too late.

Did Swifty sing the Twilight hunk’s reaction to “Back to December?” Taylor, 20, has been very open about the meaning behind the song, calling it an apology to someone whose heart she broke — and we always wondered what Lautner thought of it.

Was the mash-up our answer? It could be we finally got Taylor Lautner’s thoughts on the apology song, and he told his ex-gal it was “too late.” However, the addition of the One Republic cover could have also been Swift’s assumption of how he feels — or she could have just mashed those songs together because she liked the way they sounded, and they were along the same theme of regret and heartbreak.

That said, it’s much more fun to speculate something deeper, isn’t it? Watch the video and decide for yourself!

T.Swift had her chance with T.Lautner and broke his heart i wouldn’t forgive her ethier. I would ignore her and forget all about her because if u care about someone u dont break there heart and then write a song thinking it is going to fix anything or make them forget about what u did IT DOESN’T. So T.Swift if u ever read this, your to late and T.Lautner deserves better

Well your first sentence, That I understand, She broke his heart, But MOST people don’t apologize.
With everything else, she did say in the song if I remember, ‘if the chain is on your door I understand.
And btw. hes the freak in twilight who turns into a werewolf, Just saying.. (SHE deserves better than the dog)

i think t.swift not try to force t.lautner if he doesn’t want..If he wants to start again then go ahead and start..If he doesn’t want to,t.swift should just move on..

well the last lyics b4 the “it’s too late part” part is “so if the chain is on your door i understand” and she goes and says “And then HE SAID its too late to apologize.” I dont think it has 2 do with his video. He told her its too late. Thats too bad :/ oh she also said that she was looking fwd to the guys’ feedback so ya :/

I think that either Lautner told Swift that it was “too late” or its his favorite song or some type of reference to something that means something to the two of them.

Actually the reason for the mash up is because Taylor lautner made a video for school and it was to apologize. I think it’s a reference to that.

Taylor L. seems to be pretty smart. He has seen how many guys she burns through and he knows she can’t take a relationship seriously. He seems to be very private and she is very public so he may be asking himself what is her true motive.

I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that Taylor Lautner said “It’s too late to apologize”. She moved on to John Mayer, why should he forgive and want to take her back? I wouldn’t.
