Taylor Swift is unleashing her inner detective and dropping hints about the hidden secrets of her Midnight tracks! Hold on to your glittery hats because the Swifties’ world is about to be turned upside down.
So, you know that sappy love song of Taylor’s from 2022, “Sweet Nothing,” right? Initially, everyone thought it was a heartfelt serenade to her ex, Joe Alwyn. Well, prepare for a plot twist that not even M. Night Shyamalan saw coming.
Taylor recently gave a thumbs-up to a post on X (formerly known as Twitter). What was the post about, you ask? Brace yourselves – it involves another celebrity couple. Cue the dramatic gasps!
Our “Anti-Hero” songstress casually liked an ancient tweet from October 2022 that drew a connection between a Paul McCartney quote and a lyric from “Sweet Nothing.” Yes, THE Paul McCartney – not your neighbor Paul who thinks he’s a rockstar with his garage band.
Paul spilled the poetic beans about his ex, Linda McCartney, saying, “I would come back from a run with a poem to share, and having listened, Linda would say, ‘What a mind.'” Talk about relationship goals, right?
Now, fast forward to Taylor’s romantic escapade in her Midnights track where she croons, “On the way home / I wrote a poem / You say, ‘What a mind’ / This happens all the time.” Coincidence? We think not.
It turns out Taylor has been fangirling over Paul throughout her entire career, shouting her love from the rooftops. So, is “Sweet Nothing” really a love ballad to Joe, or is it a secret ode to her admiration for Sir Paul McCartney? The world may never know, but let’s appreciate the genius detective work of Taylor Swift and her fans for turning the pop music scene into a real-life whodunit!
