Taylor Swift, who had earlier announced that ‘Red (Taylor's Version)’ will be out on November 19, is coming a week earlier and Swifties could not help but erupt with joy on the Internet. Rumors have been rife that the re-recorded version of the album is about the singer’s former lover Jake Gyllenhaal. The fans went bonkers as they expected a few songs might take a dig at the Hollywood star.

Though the 31-year-old crooner has been trolled several times for writing sad and heartbreak songs about her ex-flames, it did not stop her to express her feelings on the re-recorded version. The ‘Blank Space’ hitmaker dated Gyllenhaal for a very brief period in 2010. The acclaimed songstress had also dropped a song called ‘All Too Well’ in 2012 which Swifties till date think points toward Gyllenhaal. On the song, Swift crooned, “And I, left my scarf there at your sister's house/ And you've still got it in your drawer even now.” Social media users brutally trolled Gyllenhaal as ‘Red (Taylor's Version)’ neared its release.

Did Taylor Swift take a dig at Jake Gyllenhaal on new album?

Taylor Swift took to her Instagram account to share that she will be releasing a short film for the song ‘All Too Well’ that will apparently shed light on her relationship with the ‘Zodiac’ star. A track called ‘I Bet You Think About Me’ also seems to be taking a dig at the actor. The lyrics of the song go like, “You can't help who you fall for, and you and I fell like an early spring snow/But reality crept in, you said we're too different”. In a later part of the song, she croons, “laughed at my dreams” and “rolled your eyes at my jokes.”

Swift’s earlier chart-topping numbers the original ‘Red’ namely ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ and ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, are still considered a diss against Gyllenhaal. Taking to Twitter a few months ago, the singer had announced that the re-recorded version of the album will be packed with 30 songs instead of 16 like the original. She had also shared a lengthy post about the re-launch of her album where she shed light on how musically and lyrically, ‘Red’ resembled a heartbroken person. “I've always said that the world is a different place for the heartbroken. It moves on a different axis, at a different speed. Time skips backwards and forwards fleetingly.” She continued, “The heartbroken might go through thousands of micro-emotions a day trying to figure out how to get through it without picking up the phone to hear that old familiar voice. In the land of heartbreak, moments of strength, independent and devil-may-care rebellion are intricately woven together with grief, paralyzing vulnerability and hopelessness."
