Taylor Swift's ex gave her a "complex" about her music

Taylor Swift has spoken out about an ex who gave her a complex about her music. She has also refused to comment that the ex in question was Jake Gyllenhaal. But we’re pretty sure it is.

He who shall remain anonymous reportedly inspired lyrics from her latest single, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, as his 'very eclectic, sophisticated tastes' in music made her country-pop feel a little inferior and mainstream.

TayTay said "This guy was just so, so cool. It kind of gave me a bit of a complex for this album, because he was always going on and on about this new band that was so cool because they were so underground."

She continued: "I have so many indie bands on my iPod. What I don't really understand is the attitude that if a band is unknown, they're good, and if they get fans, then you move on to the next band."

Well gutted bro, because not only have you actually now inspired some of this super uncool music which gets played on the radio, but it's proven pretty popular, with Swizzo's album 'Red' holding the crown for most sales in the first week of release this year.

From Swifty’s (extensive) track history of boyfriends, Mr Anon could be just about anyone. She’s confirmed that this ex is not a musician – so not a Jonas brother – but says "You try to give insight as to where you were coming from as a writer without completely throwing somebody under the bus."

Not only that, but the man in question specifically asked her not to write about him…. And she did. "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."

The drama never ends, but at least Swifty has a beautiful, Harry Styles shaped shoulder to cry on.
