Is Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" about Harry Styles?

While it's been rumored for awhile that "IKYWT" was written about Harry, Taylor is finally confirming it.

Interesting, since she rarely spills so clearly which ex-boyfriend she's written songs for (though we can usually figure it out pretty easily), but this time Taylor makes it crystal clear.

In a new interview with Times magazine (via The Daily Mirror's 3AM), Taylor talks about performing "I Knew You Were Trouble" in front of Harry at the BRIT Awards.

She explained, "You're balancing the analytical side of your brain, which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying 'Feel everything you're singing, and show it on your face. Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song."

The interviewer notes that she would "die" if she performed the song in front of her ex boyfriend, and here's where Taylor spills all, saying: "Well, it's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is about is standing by the side of the stage watching."

Boom. There you have it.
