Another breakup song for Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift has gained popularity for her catchy, simply country tunes, for being America’s “sweetheart,” and featuring at least one real-life breakup song about a failed relationship with one of Hollywood’s finest on each of her albums. And she’s at it again.

MSN’s Wonderwall reports that on Swift’s latest album, “Red,” the song “All Too Well” is about her failed relationship with Hollywood crooner, Jake Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal has been featured in famous blockbuster hits such as “October Sky” and “The Day After Tomorrow.”

The song reportedly gets personal, as Swift relates her Thanksgiving holiday with Gyllenhaal’s famous sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal. Though the media is all over Swift’s break-up songs, some think it is time for her to move on and start acting her age.

Swift talked about her experience writing the song on Good Morning America, and said, “‘All Too Well’ was the hardest to write because it took me a long time to filter through everything I wanted to say. “It started out being a 10-minute song, which you can’t put on an album. I had to filter it down to a story that could work in the form of a song.”

Apparently, Gyllenhaal dumped Swift via phone call, and this is not the first time. In 2007, the singer also claimed she was dumped by Jonas Brothers’ Joe Jonas over a 27-second phone call. He too felt the wrath of Swift in one of her most famous breakup songs to date, “Forever and Always,” in which Swift successfully painted Jonas as a lying, inconsiderate heart-breaker. In attempt to fire back at her, Jonas wrote “Paranoid” and “Much Better.”

Rumors surfaced earlier that Swift’s hit “We are Never Ever getting back Together” was also about Jonas, but he refuted those claims.

With recent reports that Taylor is now dating One Direction’s Harry Styles, her fans must be eager and wondering if there will be yet another breakup song in her future albums. If so, Styles would be added to the long list of past boyfriends embarrassed by Swift’s catchy songs, including Gyllenhaal, Jonas, and John Mayer,
