Taylor Swift's 'We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together,' About Jake Gyllenhaal
Lucky for us, Taylor Swift' has publicly dated only a handful of A-listers, so when pinpointing the subject of her latest single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," there's less than half a dozen choices to cycle through.
While we thought last month the song was about John Mayer, it seems the spies that will be are now certain the tune is about Jake Gyllenhaal.
There are a few telling signs: for starters he's wearing a dark blue vest (Jake owns a similar one), she's wearing a gold bracelet (Jake gifted her with a look-alike) and there's a scarf, which was central to the Swifty-Jake union (he let her wear his scarf... in front of the cameras).
Also, Jake broke up with Taylor in December of 2010, only to reconcile with her a month later before they called it quits for good. This romantic flip-flopping Joe Jonas (another suspect) denies after he and Tay split in 2009, thus confirming the song isn't about him.
While at first glance, we were certain the jab about losing one's self an "indie record" was about John, who did in fact escape to make a record after their spring of 2011 split, the video clearly shows an actor only listening to a record. Hmm.
So perhaps the subject isn't a musician?
All this being said, Taylor is intent on keeping the inspiration's identity a secret... this time.
Mr. Mayer wasn't so lucky when she released the acidic "Dear John," which he told Rolling Stone made him feel "really humiliated" and "terrible."
