Before she became a household name, Taylor Swift was just a teenage singer-songwriter with teardrops on her guitar. She had stars in her eyes and a wide-open heart that would eventually be broken even more than her wistful music suggested.
But who’s crying now? With some of the catchiest tunes in the history of pop music, even the most adamant anti-fan can hum at least one of the 10 time Grammy winner’s hit songs! But what makes a pop legend this famous? What’s the secret to success in such a cutthroat industry? For Swift, the answer might be the blood (figurative) of ex-lovers.
From Joe Jonas to John Mayer, Swift has admittedly “got a long list of ex-lovers.” Though she rarely fills in the blank spaces in her songs with their names, she has embedded the lyrics with their memories.
At the moment, Swift is seeing British actor, Joe Alwyn. If history is any indication, he could be immortalized with some (equally) catchy and ruthless lyrics. Or, maybe his will be the name that will be written in the “Blank Space” that Swift has been reserving for her future husband!
Only time (and Swift’s future lyrics) may tell!
