Oh no! Taylor Swift has come under fire for allegedly stealing a Matt Nathanson lyric from 2003 and using it in her song ‘All Too Well,’ a track on her new album ‘Red.’ Do YOU think Taylor would do that?
He tweeted, and later deleted, on Oct. 24, “she’s definitely a fan… and now she’s a thief.”
The blog Oh No They Didn’t! pointed out the similar lyrics on Oct. 31, adding, “I wouldn’t think much about it normally except for the fact that she is a fan of his…she has written HIS lyrics on her arm at her concerts before [during her Speak Now tour].”
Matt went back to his Twitter on Nov. 2, saying, “so far, my favorite thing about today is the wave of @taylorswift13 fans calling me a prick on twitter for writing “i saw” in 2003.”
Matt sings in 2003’s “I Saw’ — “and I’ll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to.”
Taylor’s 2012 song “All Too Well” goes like this: “and I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to.”
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to their reps and is awaiting comment.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is it a coincidence or did Taylor steal Matt’s lyrics?
