Here's Which Ex Taylor Swift's New Song Is About

It's not who you expected!

Happy Friday! Or should I say, happy Taylor-Swift-just-dropped-another-single day! That's right, if you have been living under a rock all day and didn't know already, Taylor is back (again) with a new single called 'Gorgeous.' 

The song dropped last night at midnight and Twitter went crazy over. Packed with cat references, less weird beat changes (*cough* LWYMMD *cough*) and tons of hints as to who it was about, Swifties across the globe began to sift through the lyrics to crack the mystery. Which ex is this one about?!

As usual, it never takes too long to figure out who Swift is writing about considering she leaves it pretty easy for people to figure out on their own. This time the key lyrics were:

"And I got a boyfriend, he's older than us / He's in the club doing I don't know what." 

"Ocean blue eyes looking in mine."

What's so relevant about these two lines? Well if you look at the list of Taylor's exs, you'll notice that there's two  (sorry, I'm getting a little ahead of myself here aren't I) one who has blue eyes, Tom Hiddleston, as well as her current beau Joe Alwyn.

So already the song is narrowed down to two people, but if you notice that sneaky mention of her current boyfriend at the time being older, that's where the roles of each are revealed. Considering Tom Hiddleston is 36 whereas Taylor and her new beau are 27 and 26, it's clear this song was written about Taylor dreaming about Joe while with Tom! 

What's really interesting about this song is that considering the way it's written, it sounds like Taylor met Joe while she was with Tom. Which makes us wonder if it was Joe Alwyn who is the real reason Tom and Taylor split last year.

Only time (and the full album hopefully) will tell what the true story is, but it's needless to say Taylor is spilling all of the tea and isn't holding anything back.
