Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift Recalls Inspiration For New Break-up Anthem

Taylor Swift hopes to send a powerful message to one real-life ex-boyfriend with the release of her new break-up anthem We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - because he just cannot take the hint she is over him.
The Love Story hitmaker, who is now reportedly dating Robert Kennedy, Jr.'s 18-year-old son Conor, has often poured out her heart in lyrics to her songs, reportedly writing tunes about her failed high-profile relationships with the likes of John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas.
On Monday (13Aug12), she premiered her new single during a live web chat with fans, sparking much speculation about the song's subject, and now Swift explains she grew so frustrated by endless rumours she was reuniting with a certain unnamed ex, she decided to set the record straight - publicly.
She tells U.S. news show Nightline, "I was writing (in the studio)... and then this guy walks in, who was a friend of my ex's, and he starts talking about how he's heard that we were getting back together - and that was not the case.
"And so when he leaves, (Swift's songwriting partner Max Martin) was like, 'So what's the story behind that?' And so I start telling him this story of this break-up, get back together, break-up, get back together, just, ugh, the worst. I picked up a guitar and Max said, 'This is what we're writing...' It was so much fun."
