Red is for Jake Gyllenhaal
Taylor Swift’s massive fanbase, who call themselves Swifties, was very rapid to conclude that their idol’s Red album is all about the 39-year-old Donni Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal. The matter is backed to the legit happening of Taylor’s love affair timeline; the singer went to a breakup with Jake a year before Red made its way to the global music spotlight.
Rolling Stone is the first who heard Taylor Swift’s revelation, as the Look What You Made Me Do singer graces an interview with the outlet for its magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums feature. The interview is also in partnership with Amazon Music, Billboard reported.
“I look back on this [Red] as my true breakup album, every other album has flickers of different things,” TayTay said with no hesitations. “But this was an album that I wrote specifically about pure, absolute, to the core, heartbreak,” she continued.
