Taylor Swift has made it no secret that her real-life romances fuel her songwriting, and it sounds like ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal is her next target!

After famously scribing and singing songs about failed romances with Joe Jonas and John Mayer, the country singer alludes to Jonathan Van Meter of Vogue in the February issue that her brief romance with Gyllenhaal from winter 2010 will be paid homage to in the form of her next album – and has the details.

When asked if she was dating anyone currently, Taylor responded: “I got nothing going on! I just don’t really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now, and I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that.”

When asked if she was crying last Christmas, when she reportedly got dumped by Gyllenhaal, who she had been dating for a few months at the end of 2010, she replied, “I am not gonna go into it! It’s a sad story!”

Swift, who is currently working on her fourth album, explains that it will be all about a certain heartbreak.

“There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak,” she says, “and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. The only way that I can feel better about myself -- pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone -- is writing songs about it to

get some sort of clarity.”
