Whoa! Most of Taylor’s songs are disses directed toward her ex-boyfriends — but did she hear positive feedback from Harry about her ‘Red’ album, even though they had a tumultuous breakup? Read on for more details!
In a new interview with New York, Taylor, 23, reveals that she got feedback from the guy who inspired most of her hit album, Red — and could it be that Harry Styles isn’t upset about her angry song about him, “I Knew You Were Trouble?”
Harry Styles: Did He Compliment Taylor Swift About ‘Red’ Album?
Taylor’s songs about her exes usually don’t get compliments in return from the guys she wrote them about — but perhaps Harry, 19, is different than the rest!
“I heard from the guy that most of Red is about,” Taylor told the magazine. “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it—but one of those people happened to be a songwriter.”
How sweet! “I Knew You Were Trouble” is a dark, emotional song — and since Harry didn’t retaliate when Taylor publicly thanked him for inspiring the song at the VMA awards, it sounds like he has a thick skin! The album is also largely rumored to be about Jake Gyllenhaal.
However, Tay went on and said that he basically didn’t have a choice about being subject matter in her songs.
“So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?” Taylor said. Even if Harry was the ex that complimented her album — she may have gone on to diss him anyway at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show!
Taylor Swift: Did She Diss Harry Styles At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show?
Taylor opened the show in a sizzling Union Jack dress! Was she showing Harry she didn’t give a hoot about rocking his country’s emblem — since she’s mocked his British accent before in public?
HollywoodLife.com was also sitting in the front row at the sexy show and and we saw Cara Delevingne, Harry’s ex, saunter past Taylor wearing a sexy soccer costume — and Taylor gave Cara a pat on the bum! Were they publicly dissing Harry just to get under his skin? Taylor also sang “I Knew You Were Trouble,” the song that she burns him in, rocking a sexy silver mini dress.
Do YOU think it was sweet that Harry complimented Taylor’s album, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
