In a new interview with Times Magazine, Taylor Swift admits that her new single, I Knew You Were Trouble, was written about her ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles. The 23-year-old singer didn’t actually mention her 19-year-old ex by name, but all her comments point to the One Direction member.
When asked about performing the song live at the 2013 BRIT Awards, Swift said, “It’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is about is standing by the side of the stage watching.” Styles and her band members were at the Brit Awards this year as performers and nominees.
Swift added, “You’re balancing the analytical side of your brain, which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying ‘Feel everything you’re singing, and show it on your face.”
In contrast to Swift, who has no problems discussing their relationship publicly, Styles seems to want to erase any trace of it from being further exposed. Although not confirmed by credible sources, tabloid magazine Life & Style reports that Harry Styles requested all footage of Taylor Swift removed from the upcoming documentary, This Is Us.
While her honesty through her music can be commended and is clearly working in her favour, there are a number of detractors who think it is off-putting. The more you share about your personal life to the public, the more criticism you’ll get.
I think Swift should follow the lead of Adele. The 24-year-old British music phenomenon never discusses her private life in interviews. The new mother hasn’t even confirmed the name of her first child. Unlike Swift, Adele lets her music speak for itself.
What are your thoughts on Taylor Swift’s new confession about Harry Styles? Do you admire her honesty through music or are you tired of hearing about her love life?
