Taylor Swift would have made Teddy Roosevelt happy with her ‘speak softly but carry a big stick’ modus operandi of late, as she proves that she will “go far” no matter what happens. Having just released her third album ‘Speak Now’, Swift reveals in journal-like fashion the story of her life and her inner thoughts and emotions regarding certain events of the past few years.
(See slideshow link of Swift here.)
Her tune “Innocent” was written last year after the Kanye West MTV VMA incident. In this song Swift basically takes the high road but still hurls in a bit of an insult with “32 and still growing up now.”
As for Joe Jonas, all he must do is listen to “Better Than Revenge” to find out what Swift is feeling in regards to their 2008 breakup. And after Camille Belle hears the lyrics (i.e., Belle is better known “better known for the things she does on the mattress”), she may be exacting revenge against Swift.
And of course, there’s the ditty ‘Dear John’ (allegedly written about Swift’s rather shrouded-in-mystery relationship with John Mayer) which includes the following chorus:
I see it all now that you’re gone
Don’t you think I was too young
To be messed with
The girl in the dress
Cried the whole way home
I should’ve known.
It was wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young
To be played
By your dark, twisted games
When I loved you so.”
(Ooh, John. Not good for your already tarnished reputation.)
But don’t worry Taylor Swift fans! Not everything is down and out in Taylor Swift’s love life. In fact, Swift was spotted in NYC over the weekend with Jake Gyllenhaal, The couple were first spotted at a ‘Saturday Night Live’ taping and then gracing unsuspecting passersby as they strolled through Brooklyn Park’s Slope neighborhood.

Fair warning, Jake……treat Taylor right or you may just find yourself being sung about in Album Number Four!
