    Taylor Swift’s latest album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department,’ is no exception to her penchant for lyrics with hidden meanings. Among its tracks, ‘But Daddy I Love Him‘ is widely believed to be about one of her exes, The 1975 frontman Matty Healy. While Swifties are convinced of their speculation, there’s another interesting anecdote that has come forth about the song.

    After the song quickly emerged as a fan favorite, a revelation from an old interview has thrown a curveball into the speculation. In a resurfaced 2008 interview with PopSugar, Taylor Swift recounted how some part of her hit song ‘Love Storydraws inspiration from an iconic line, “But daddy, I love him!” that she shouted at her father during a teenage outburst.

    This song, I wrote it right after my one epic teenage tantrum that I ever threw in my whole life. And I remember screaming something like ‘But daddy, I love him!’ and running out and storming into my room and slamming the door and then I sat down on the floor and wrote this song,” she can be heard saying in the interview.

    The song ‘But Daddy, I Love Him‘ has lyrics hinting at forbidden love, and fans are now nearly convinced that she isn’t singing about Matty Healy. In the song, she sings: “Now I’m running with my dress unbuttoned / Screaming ‘But Daddy I love him!’ / I’m having his baby / No, I’m not, but you should see your faces.”

    Many initially believed that the song was about Matty Healy because of his problematic and controversial image. The singer is known to have immature traits as openly confessed by himself. However, the resurfaced interview has turned the tables, with several other possibilities.

    Fans are now again trying to dissect the song’s lyrics for hidden meanings, with some interpreting them as dedicated to Swift’s current romance with NFL star Travis Kelce.
