Here’s why Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner’s almost-feud over a Joe Jonas track is superior
Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner are in a cute little almost-feud over one in every of Swift’s latest songs off her upcoming Fearless (Taylor’s Version) album as a result of one of many songs could be about Joe Jonas when Swift dated him in 2008 and right here, let me clarify.
After Scooter Braun and his associates acquired Taylor Swift’s spectacular again catalog of music, the music mogul determined that she would re-record all her outdated songs to make sure that Braun couldn’t truly revenue off her music. It was an excellent plan and to this point, Swift has launched the re-recorded model of “Love Story” initially off her Fearless album.
“Mr. Perfectly Fine” is the second beforehand unreleased monitor that Swift has dropped forward of the Fearless (Taylor’s Version) album drop, nonetheless, “Mr. Perfectly Fine” isn’t a brand new model of an outdated fave, it’s truly a monitor that she wrote through the Fearless period (aka 2008) and simply by no means launched. So no one has heard this track — that she wrote when she was 18 — till now.
Now that it’s out, Swifties on the web are like, “omigod who is this song about?” as a result of effectively, “Mr. Perfectly Fine” was written through the period when Swift wrote a lot of breakup songs in regards to the superstar males she dated.
With lyrics like “Mr. Never told me why/Mr. Never had to see me cry/Mr. Insincere apology so he doesn’t look like the bad guy,” followers suppose that the track is about Joe Jonas, which tracks. The two dated briefly in 2008, Swift lore says he dumped her through a 27-second telephone name, and Swift has beforehand confirmed that one other track on the Fearless album was about Joe. All indicators level to Joe, basically, so it’s secure to say “Mr. Perfectly Fine” might be about him.
