In an interview with “Nightline,” Swift explained that the inspiration for the song came after one of her ex-boyfriend’s friends came into the studio and said he had heard they were getting back together — which was not the case.
“When he leaves, Max and Johan are like, ‘So what’s the story behind that?’ And so I start telling them the story of break up, get back together, break up, get back together, just, ugh, the worst,” she explained.
And a source who talked to Us Weekly.
“It’s definitely about Jake,” says a source. The music video features an actor who looks like Jake and the lyrics are telling too: “Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change.”
The guy in the music video looks about as much like Jake as does any white guy with a 5 o’clock shadow and dark hair does. Anyway, HuffPo ran with it noting that the guy in the video wears a navy blue down vest similar to a jacket wore on one of their dates. There is also a scarf that the video boyfriend gives her which is reminiscent of Swift wearing Jake’s scarf. There’s also a bracelet Swift wears in the video which looks like the $100,000 one that Jake may have given her for her birthday.
My god, the evidence is mounting into a gigantic pile of who cares.
