Taylor Swift’s New Song “Begin Again” Is Supposedly About Jake Gyllenhaal

When Jake Gyllenhaal started dating Taylor Swift back in 2010, he must’ve known he was gambling that a song might be written about him down the road. So, is this it? If a blogger from Oh No You Didn’t! with a lot of time on his/her hands is to be believed, “Begin Again,” is Tay-Tay’s Jake Gyllenhaal breakup song. The theory is that Taylor is singing about moving on after getting dumped by Jake and relishing the sweetness she found with Will Anderson from the band Parachute. One clue is that she and Will Anderson dated eight months after Jake and she mentioned “eight months” in the song; Will is also a James Taylor fan and she makes a reference to all her “James Taylor records.” And then there’s a whole bunch of other little digs at Jake — or whomever — about how he never laughed at her jokes and didn’t like when she wore high heels.  I wouldn’t put it past John Mayer to have been a dick like that, either, though. Gurl, we’ve got to help you get better taste in men. [ONTD]
