One of Taylor Swift’s Exes Finally Writes a Song About HER

Taylor Swift has become fantastically wealthy by writing hit songs about her failed relationships: “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “Dear John” (her issues with John Mayer), “Last Kiss” and “Better Than Revenge” (Joe Jonas), “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” (take your pick), “Back to December” (Taylor Lautner), “When You Thought It Was True Love” and “Begin Again”(Jake Gyllenhaal), “The Way I Loved You” (another toss-up), “You’re Not Sorry” (ditto) and “Should’ve Said No” (Harry Styles). I’m sure I’ve missed a few, too.

However, turnabout is fair play. Matt Healy, the singer for The 1975 and a Taylor Swift ex from 2014, has written a song about…guess who? Well, at least he says it was partially inspired by Taylor. I quote from “A Change of Heart.”

You said I’m full of diseases

Your eyes were full of regret

And then you took a picture of your salad

And put it on the Internet

Pure poetry. Here’s the song in full. (Via Page Six)

    They never actually dated, just because she interacts with/is pictured a dude doesn’t mean they’re going out… I remember one time she took her brother Austin to an event once and someone thought they were dating (even though they look a bit alike). She didn’t date in 2013 or 2014.

    I think the song is hilariously funny, myself, in parts. Leave it to the British guy to be sarcastic!
