TAYLOR Swift has been enthralling fans by releasing previously unheard songs – some which don’t hold back in her views on certain ex boyfriends.
One in particular has caught the attention of fans – Mr. Perfectly Fine which came out on Wednesday – and sent Twitter into a tailspin over its scathing lyrics which were aimed at her ex Joe Jonas.
Taylor doesn’t hold back in her takedown of Joe in the song, calling him “casually cruel” and “Mr. Insincere” following his distant attitude following their 2008 relationship and breakup.
“Hello, Mr. ‘Perfectly fine’.
“How’s your heart after breaking mine?" Trills Taylor in the chorus.
Joe dumped Taylor over the phone in October 2008 after they had been dating from July of that year.
The song continues: “Mr ‘Always at the right place at the right time,’ baby.
“Hello Mr. ‘Casually cruel’.
“Mr. ‘Everything revolves around you’.
“I’ve been Miss ‘Misery’ since your goodbye and you’re Mr. “Perfectly fine’.”
‘She continues: “Mr. ‘Never liked me’; why?
“Mr. ‘Never had to see me cry.’
“Mr ‘Insincere apology’, so he doesn’t look like the bad guy.
“He goes about his day forgets he ever even heard my name. Thought you might be different than the rest I guess you’re all the same, cause I hear he’s got his arm around a brand new girl.
“I’ve been picking up my heart he’s been picking up her and I never got past what you put me through but it’s wonderful to see that it never phased you…
“So dignified in your well pressed suits. So strategized all the eyes on you. Sashay your way to your seat oh he’s so smug Mr. ‘All’ Mr. ‘Wins’ so far above me in every sense.”
Taylor didn’t take the break-up well at the time and called her ex out a month later on the Ellen DeGeneres show in November of that year, telling her that the song Forever and Always on her album Fearless was about Joe: “That’s an ouch…I’m not even going to be able to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18.”
Eleven years later, in June 2019, aged 29, Taylor told Ellen, she regretted taking Joe down on the show and said: “Yeah, that was too much. I was 18. We laugh about it now. That was mouthy, yeah, teenage stuff there.”
Joe told Lorraine Kelly he was glad at the time that Taylor had sent a roundabout apology via Ellen, saying: “It’s probably something that I was feeling pretty bad about when I was younger, but at the end of the day, I’ve moved on. I’m sure Taylor’s moved on, and it feels nice, and we’re all friends, and it’s all good. We were so young.”
This time Joe has let it be known he’s not remotely bothered at Taylor’s new takedown, by not even mentioning the song and its digs at all on his Instagram, choosing instead to post a photo of himself outside golfing.
However, the song does have an unlikely admirer – his wife Sophie Turner.
Sharing a shot of herself listening to the song, Sophie wrote to her followers, “It’s not NOT a bop.”
Taylor quickly responded sharing Sophie’s reactive post to her own Insta story with the added comment: “Forever bending the knee for the (insert emoticon for Queen) of the north.”
