For a brief moment in 2009, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were an item. And although the era of “Taylor Squared” may have only last a few months, their romance was immortalized in Swift’s Speak Now track “Back to December.” Or at least that’s what the rumors were.
You see, Swift has a reputation for using her love life as a source of inspiration; however, she rarely discloses which songs are about whom. Many assumed “Back to December” was about Lautner because of the lyrics, “I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile.” But, again, no one really knew for sure. That is until now.
While promoting the second season of Scream Queens, Lautner, Lea Michele, and John Stamos conducted a Facebook Live interview in which the Twilight star basically confirmed he was the inspiration behind “Back to December.”
At the 9:30 mark above, Michele begins to ask Lautner about the time he dated the 26-year-old singer. Lautner makes it clear he’s not down to talk about it, but Michele continues on.
“Didn’t she write a song about you?” she asked.
“That’s what she does. She writes songs,” he replied.
Michele then attempts to recall which song exactly. “I think it’s the one about a sweater and hat, right? Am I right, though? […] It’s something about, like, ‘If I would’ve known, I wouldn’t have done that. I made you hat.’ It’s very sweet.”
The two go back and forth for a while, until Lautner finally says, “It’s called ‘Back to December.’”
So, there you have it. Check out the video above.
