During a recent Facebook Live chat with Screams Queens stars Taylor Lautner, Lea Michele and John Stamos, there was a huge revelation: T-Swizz was singing about her relationship with Lautner, the Twilight werwolf Jacob, in her song "Back to December."
Michele and Stamos had to practically torture a confession out of Lautner as he was disinclined to say which song it was exactly. You can see from the video below that Lautner is very shy about the whole thing, which is sweet. But we want to know all the gossip, especially when it comes to Taylor Swift!
Taylor and Taylor dated for nearly a year after they met on the set of Valentine's Day — how very appropriate! Taylor Squared became a huge internet sensation, but sadly their romance was doomed; the pair split in early 2010 after deciding to be just friends.
Taylor reportedly writes all about her ex-boyfriends, and her relationships act as inspiration for her work. We now know that Lautner has been added to Taylor's list of Starbucks lovers.
Let's examine the "Back to December" lyrics for evidence of a happier time between Taylor Squared, and thing about what could have been one hell of a celebrity couple.
First, listen to the song, have a cry, Facebook stalk an ex, whatever gets you through.
1. You've been good / busier than ever
New Moon was released November 2009, right when the Taylors were a thing. Lautner would have been exceptionally busy with premieres, promotions and TV appearances at the time meaning that he may not have seen Taylor for quite some time. Also at the time of Swift writing "Back to December," Lautner was very busy and his career was snowballing, Taylor clearly appreciates this and congratulates him on his work.
2. Because the last time you saw me / Is still burned in the back of your mind
When talking to People Magazine in 2011, Taylor hinted at Lautner being way more into her than she was with him and that she didn't treat him nearly as well as he deserved. Scandalous!
3. And I go back to December all the time
The two split in early 2010, meaning the last time they were together as a couple was December. We can also assume December was the last time they were happy with each other. Poor Lautner was left out in the cold, but with that werwolf blood he'll be alright.
Laughter and fun times cruising around in his fancy car back when everything was good. Be right back, just crying my eyes out!
5. And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind
When interviewed by New York Magazine, Taylor Swift had this to say about her relationship when things got rocky with Lautner:
"It was at an awards show and there had been this falling-out between me and this guy. I think both of us had so much that we wanted to say, but we’re sitting six seats away from each other, just fighting this silent war of ‘I don’t care that you’re here.’ I remember getting home and sitting at the kitchen table and saying to my mom, ‘It was like I was standing alone in a crowded room.’ That’s when my eyes glazed over and I got distracted and walked away to write. My mom is used to me doing that."
December is also in the midst of winter, when it seems problems arouse for the couple. The weather acting as pathetic fallacy for the failed love story — whoa Taylor, deep!
6. I miss your tanned skin / your sweet smile
If that's not tanned skin and a sweet smile I don't know what is. Swift clearly regrets the way the relationship panned out and who wouldn't miss this face? That sweet smile must still hold a place in her heart.
Lautner appears to have taken everything in stride, even if he's a little timid about it all, we had our suspicions but we love that he's confirmed it, thanks for the badgering, Lea!
Taylor's use of real events and emotions add a depth to her lyrics and music, and if the awards she continuously rakes in are anything to go by, she shouldn't stop what she's doing. Tom Hiddleston had better watch out! "Loki drives me loco" could be a catchy song lyric.
Have you ever written anything about an ex?
