Before you enter a serious relationship with a girl, you should pay attention to how she talks (or sings) about her exes, because history has a way of repeating itself. In the case of Taylor Swift, you’ll probably wind up becoming fodder for bitter lyrics. She once even promised a boyfriend that she wouldn’t write a song about him… and then backtracked:
Of course I was like, “Oh, don’t worry, I won’t.” And then I did. Look, it’s not like it was written somewhere in the fine print that I write songs about my life. If we break up, I’m going to write about it. But I’m probably also going to write about when I fell in love with you. So there’s an upside.
Big, big warning flag here. So she told a guy she wasn’t going to write about him, then she went ahead a did it anyway? Et tu, Brute? Even worse, Swift doesn’t seem to display a tinge of remorse for stabbing this guy in the back with a tell-all breakup song. Instead, she gloats about the “upside” of falling in love with her because she’ll write about it.
Win or lose, you’re getting a song written about you. How lucky! Swift’s attitude reeks of selfishness and comes across as completely ignorant of the feelings of the other person in the relationship.
