4 Songs That Were Written About Taylor Swift

Posted on

Taylor Swift isn’t the only one who has a way with words.

While the “Bad Blood” singer is known for airing her frustrations with former flames through songwriting, she’s not always the one getting the last word.

In fact, a handful of the performer’s ex-confidantes have gotten candid about Swift on their own tracks.

Keep reading to see which artists have been waxing poetic – er, or not – about Swift through the years.

Kanye West – "Famous"

ICYMI: The rapper debuted his anticipated album The Life of Pablo on Thursday, unveiling “Famous,” which makes a jab at Swift’s climb to fame.
Memorable lyric: “For all my Southside n—-s who will know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that bitch famous”

One Direction – "Perfect"

Co-written by Swift’s former flame, Harry Styles, “Perfect” features clever lines that are reminiscent of the Grammy winner’s song “Style” – which is said to be about the One Direction member. Full circle!
Memorable lyric: “If you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about, baby, I’m perfect”

John Mayer – "Paper Doll"

Die-hard Swift fans will quickly make the connection between Mayer’s “Paper Doll” and the pop singer’s 2010 single “Dear John,” which the singer’s former flame references. It’s also important to note that “Paper Doll” was released after Swift’s “22” hit airwaves.
Memorable lyric: “You’re like 22 girls in one” and “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky”

Katy Perry – "Crocodile Tears"

While only a rumor, Perry is said to be collaborating with former flame Diplo on a rebuttal track named “Crocodile Tears” aimed at Swift, whose hit song “Bad Blood” supposedly targeted the “Roar” crooner.
