In ‘Slut’, Taylor is singing about someone she was very much infatuated with, in a relationship, and really wanted to give it her all. Further in the song she talks about the slutshaming she received for dating him, which she embraces, as a price she’s willing to pay to stay with him.

When Taylor and Harry dated, she was criticized and slutshamed by One Direction fans. The paparazzi also exploited their relationship to the point where they couldn’t be seen anywhere together.

The lyrics that hint its for Harry go, “I’ll pay the price, you won’t/ But if I’m all dressed up/ They might as well be lookin’ at us/ And if they call me a slut!/ You know it might be worth it for once.”

Everyone wants him, that was my crime/ The wrong place at the right time/ And I break down, then he’s pullin’ me in/ In a world of boys, he’s a gentleman.”
