The country pop singer revealed that her fourth studio album is inspired by her "absolute crash-and-burn" relationship which media suspects is her short-lived romance with rising star Jake Gyllenhaal back in 2010.
Her previous album, Speak Now, generated a lot of buzz largely due to the song "Dear John" which talked about her tumultuous relationship with songwriter John Mayer.
This time around, Swift once again uses her music to ease the pain of heartbreak. She tells Vogue, "There's just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak and that will turn out to be what the next album is about."
"The only way that I can feel better about myself -- pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone -- is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity," she added.
Swift and Gyllenhaal's much-publicized hook up lasted about four months before the "Brokeback Mountain" actor reportedly ended the relationship around Christmas time citing the media blitz around their dating life as the reason for the break up.
Swift, meantime, had this to say about the privacy issue: "I can't deal with someone who's obsessed with privacy. People kind of care if there are two famous people dating. But no one cares that much. If you care about privacy to the point where we need to dig a tunnel under this restaurant so that we can leave? I can't do that."
If the speculations are true, then Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest guy to "inspire" Taylor Swift's music. The list includes Twilight star
Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, and Joe Jonas.
What do you think would be a great title for the Jake Gyllenhaal song?
