New lyric video.
Taylor Swift’s new song “Gorgeous” is not as innocent as it sounds.
The synthy track is plunky and light, but per usual Swift flexes her lyrical genius; it’s more complex than you think.
After digesting the track, it appears the singer penned a song about cheating on ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris with either ex Tom Hiddleston or (most likely) her new beaux, Joe Alwyn.
The lyrics in question? “I got a boyfriend / He’s older than us / He’s in the club doing I don’t know.” In case you’ve been living under a very large rock, Calvin Harris frequently DJs nightclubs around the world. And, um, did Taylor just admit to cheating on him?
Now for the nauseating compliments to Alwyn. “Ocean blue eyes looking in mine/ I feel like I might sink and drown and die,” she croons. “You’re so gorgeous/ I can’t say anything to your face / Cause look at your face/ And I’m so furious/ At you for making me feel this way/ But what can I say?/ You’re gorgeous.”
You can decipher the lyrics for yourself. A shiny new lyric video is now available for your viewing and listening pleasure:
Taylor is in love. Deal with it.
