On Monday's Good Morning America, Taylor Swift offered an all-too-brief preview of "Out of the Woods," the next song from 1989. Many Swifties believe the song is about Harry Styles, whom she dated briefly in 2012, and since the title is a metaphor for finally figuring out when you're in a real, exclusive relationship and the Taylor-Harry pairing was always kind of murky, it certainly seems possible. (Further lyrical analysis to come, obviously, when the song gets its official release Tuesday.)
Speaking to ABC News, Taylor didn't specifically address the Harry Styles theories, but did admit that the new tune is about "the fragility and kind of breakable nature of some relationships." "This was a relationship where I was kind of living day-to-day wondering where it was going, if it was gonna go anywhere, if it was gonna end the next day," Taylor explained. "It was a relationship where you kind of never feel like you're standing on solid ground." That could apply to pretty much any relationship that's existed for less than six months, so this could really be about anybody — Harry Styles, that Kennedy, an interior decorator who just couldn't meet Taylor's standards.
In other Taylor news, she performed "Shake It Off" on The X Factor in the U.K. over the weekend, and wore another one of the crop top and shorts combos that she's favored recently. Anyone who's curious about where the expression "legs for days" comes from: let this video be your guide.
