“How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about,” Ms. Swift remarked to Glamour in an interview promoting her new album, which features a single rumored to be about another ex, actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Asked how she deals with criticism, Ms. Swift remarked, “I just kind of live a life, and I let all the gossip live somewhere else.”

“Somewhere else” can be purchased at record stores near you, or on iTunes!
