Taylor Swift Apologizes For Publicly Trashing Joe Jonas Back In 2008
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift has a long list of exes, some of the most memorable being DJ Calvin Harris and Thor star Tom Hiddleston, but who remembers all the way back to 2008 when she dated Joe Jonas? Before he became Mr. Sansa Stark and married Sophie Turner, Joe hooked up with the Reputation singer – and let’s just say it didn’t end well.
Back in 2008, Taylor made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she revealed Joe had broken up with her over the phone on a call that lasted under one minute. When she was asked if her latest album, Fearless, featured any songs written about Joe, Taylor told Ellen:
“There’s one [song] that’s about that guy, but that guy’s not in my life anymore, unfortunately. That’s, ouch…We haven’t talked since, but you know what, someday I’m gonna find someone really, really great who’s right for me. […] When I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18.”
Now, a whole 11 years later, Taylor has returned to The Ellen DeGeneres Show and apologized for publicly slamming the Jonas brother all those years ago. Taylor told the iconic host that talking about Joe on the show back then is probably one of her most rebellious moments, saying, “Probably when I, like, put Joe Jonas on blast on your show. That was too much, that was too much. I was 18, yeah. We laugh about it now, but that was mouthy, yeah, some teenage stuff there.”
Thankfully, Taylor and Joe can laugh about the drama now (what we’d really like to know is when they last spoke), since they’ve both moved on. She’s currently loved-up with British actor Joe Alwyn, while her first Joe married Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner last month.
