Joe Jonas: Swift's new song isn't about me

Taylor Swift is a pro at turning heartbreaks into earworms, and her latest single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is no exception.

For some fans, guessing which of Swift’s ex-boyfriends inspired lyrics like, “Then you come around again and say, ‘Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change,’” is half the fun. But Joe Jonas, who dated the country-pop princess in 2008, insists it wasn’t him.

“I don’t think we’ve ever tried [to get back together] another time, so I can tell you it’s not about me,” Jonas told 94.7 Fresh FM. “That said, I think the song is great. Taylor does pop music really well and I’m happy for her.”

But Jonas hasn’t always been free and clear. His breakup with Swift inspired her track “Forever & Always,” which appeared on her 2008 album “Fearless.”

Time magazine notes that the song could be about Jake Gyllenhaal. The singer was seen out and about with the “Source Code” actor after their relationship ended in 2010.

Either way, it’s safe to assume the 22-year-old’s tune isn’t about Conor Kennedy. Swift and the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have been spotted together of late. According to recent reports, she bought a house located near the historic Kennedy compound in Massachusetts.

    same old scenario. she sleeps with celebrity, then she writes oneof her awful songs about it. nobody wants to stay with this goofy, buck toothed, horse of a girl. she's sold herself out with countless commercials, perfume, clothing....etc. overexposure at it's worse. i wish she would just go away. i'm sick of her face.

    Lyrics to her next song after she breaks up with this Kennedy guy:

    "It's over, it's over, you won't find me in a lake like whats-her-name with Uncle Teddy".

    What do you think, Taylor? Good stuff, huh?

      'Hillbillie Barbie'....that is funny...and oddly true!
      She is just a little bit to sweet for my taste and not a very good singer either.

    Taylor needs to stop dating stars and other rugrats - a nice unknown guy will do for her - she loves the spotlight but enough is enough !!

    I for one can't stand her, it seems she always blames the guys, must be something wrong with her with so many break ups, now dating an 18 year old, come on Miss Pure and Sweet. Would you be dating him if he wasn't a Kennedy. I want to hear this song when he breaks up with you. She doesn't seem to care who she names, thats sad

      That explains why there are so many of them. How many songs on an album?

    Must be taking relationship advice from Jennifer Aniston cuz she just cant keep a man! While young, beautiful, rich, and powerful in her industry, she still needs to realize that realtionships are hard work and dont come easy. She got where she is today on her talent but a relation takes two.

    What rhymes with Kennedy because he is next. She bought a five million dollar love shack to be near him so I figured a song has got to follow.

    Not this again... I think she "dates" these guys just to have something to write about. Maybe it was cute the first time she wrote about an ex, but now it's annoying. I don't even listen to her music anymore, and I still hear about all of her failed "relationships". Only a few more months until we get to hear a song about her Kennedy boyfriend. Stay tuned!

  19. ah...

    That Taylor Swift has had a lot of ex's for only being 22. I guess only she knows which ex this song is about. I think it is funny when one of the ex's exclaims, "it wasn't me she's singing about". If they are an ex, why do they care?

    Wow. That's a really bad photo of her. And is JJ trying to look like Julius Caesar?
