Hidden Message: When I Stopped Caring What You Thought
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (aka WANEGBT) was the highly anticipated first single off Swift’s fourth album Red. Swift explained the inspiration behind the writing session, “[My friend] starts talking about how he’s heard [my ex and I] were getting back together and that 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.” song is most likely about ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal for several reasons, most notably when Swift yelled out "Jake it's your turn" after performing the tune at the I Heart Radio Music Festival in September (watch the video here). Swift's male co-star in the ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ music video also looks highly reminiscent of the actor and he wears a puffy jacket much like Gyllenhaal's own in a highly publicized photo of the couple. Additionally, in a commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards Kevin Hart shows Swift a photo of her walking with Gyllenhaal with Hart’s face pasted on the actor’s body.
