    5 Times Taylor Swift Channeled Her Rage Into Songs

    1) Picture to Burn

    This 2008 song is a pure classic that gave us an early warning that Swift means business when it comes to being heartbroken or betrayed. ‘Picture to Burn’ was inspired by her former high school boyfriend, but things did not turn out dreamy. He left Swift for one of her friends. It’s easily the angriest track on her debut album ‘Taylor Swift’.

    2) Better Than Revenge

    I mean the title itself gives it away. The song features the lyrics “there is nothing better I do than revenge,” (you go girl!) and that’s exactly what the passionless-us need. Swift wrote the song when she was 18 and it wildly speculated that her failed relationship with Joe Jonas inspired it. Moreover, fans are convinced that it’s about the woman he supposedly left her for – actress Camilla Belle. This might be the most stinging song Swift has ever written. (Ouch!)

    3) Dear John

    The slowed-down track is about musician John Mayer. In a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, he talked about how much the song “humiliated” him and made him “feel terrible”. Well, that’s a lesson that you shouldn’t have an ugly breakup with Swift. After all, the lyrics: “Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong, don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?” are pretty telling. Well, he was a self-proclaimed ‘womanizer’ at the time.

    4) Bad Blood

    The track is such an upbeat song. However, what do the elders say? Appearances are deceptive. Yes, this is not just an upbeat-fiery-song, rather it’s a track that shows what happens when you betray Swift in the name of friendship. She showed off that she has friends in high places. There are appearances by Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez (obviously), Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Zendaya and many more.

    5) Mean

    Going back to her good old country music days, Swift continued showing that best revenge is through music. The song does not specify anyone although it was rumoured that it was meant for music critic Bob Lefsetz. This track boasts about how great her life will become, while the person who was mean to her will do nothing in life and end up alone. The famous line goes: “All you are is mean, and a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life.” (Harsh!)
