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)
