Taylor Swift's original 'Gorgeous' lyrics pack a message about an ex-boyfriend

Posted on

In a video released Wednesday, Taylor Swift intimately shared the writing process of her latest track “Gorgeous.” Although many fans already dove deep to figure out references to her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn and just who that baby is at the beginning, Swifties got more detailed clues about the Reputation song in the behind-the-scenes clip, specifically from different versions of lines that are widely believed to be about her ex Calvin Harris.

“And I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us,” sings Swift in the final track. “He’s in the club doing I don’t know what/ You’re so cool it makes me hate you so much/ I hate you so much.”

The DJ reference isn’t in this variation, which reveals a potential strain on a relationship: “And I’ve got a boyfriend, he’s older than us/ I haven’t seen him in a couple of months/ I go through phases when it comes to love.”

Then there’s this version: “And I’ve got a boyfriend, he’s older than us/ I haven’t seen him in a couple of months/ My reputation precedes both of us.”

“Even the cutting room floor lines are 🔥🔥🔥,” wrote one fan who noticed the clues. Read on for more reactions.
