With a list of celeb boyfriensds longer than our annual A3 folder of gift suggestions sent off to Santa, it's probably not surprising that people often assume Taylor Swift is naming and shaming exes in her music.

But forget comparing her choices of hat to Harry Styles' beanie, or rating Jake Gyllenhaal's indie music choices as so much cooler than hers because we have stumbled on the TRUTH behind her supposedly heartbroken music videos.

Forget Harry Styles, it's the secret behind what taylor Swift is actually singing about

Well, maybe.

Probably not, but there's always a possibility and our suggestions do involve escaped gerbils, balaclava accidents, terrible dye jobs and fancying machinery.

Think this is about Joe Jonas breaking up with her during a 27 second phone call?

THINK AGAIN.

Who hasn't got themselves in a tizz and penned a top ten hit because Siri just won't commit to the everlasting love we so often offer up? WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T THINK OF US LIKE THAT SIRI?

Bloody technology.

The Story of Us could be about John Mayer. But it seems more likely to be all about that time she accidentally got her head stuck in a balaclava.

With everyone naturally assuming it was some sort of avant-garde fashion choice, it wasn't until she tripped over a chair and a small bookcase that a passing cloakroom assistant prised it off her head.

Tragic.

If our hairdresser gave us a dip dye that dodgy, we'd probably feel the need to do a two minute long monologue followed by a song about how the only remedy is to roll along the floor to avoid people seeing.

We'd feel more sorry for you Swifty, but you did say you knew they were trouble.

The Last Time about Jake Gyllenhaal? We think not.

Taylor herself described it as being experience about an unreliable guy and while you never know when he's going to come back, he always does. Usually when you're least expecting it.

That's your shadow love.

John Mayer, John Shmayer.

It seems much more likely that this is actually an ode to the disappointment and inner turmoil El Swifty felt after sitting through 90 minutes of Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried pussyfooting around each other, only to realise there might not be the happy ever after snogfest she'd signed up for after all.

Seriously, what is with the ending of that movie?

Taylor Lautner is one hot wolf and all, but he's nothing in comparison to Taylor'sfavourite gerbil, who ran away last December after a disagreement over vegetarianism with her cat, Meredith.

Returning to the wild, he met a girl gerbil and soon became busy with some baby gerbils leaving very little time for nightly phonecalls to Taylor to discuss important issues like sunflower seeds and the Greek economic crisis.

It's a sad tale, but these things happen.
