MORE than half of Taylor Swift’s new album is about her brief but tempestuous relationship with George Osborne.
Swift, who has previously written songs about ex-boyfriends Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal and Transformers star Megatron, had a three-month fling with the Chancellor of the Exchequer earlier in the year.
Music blogger Mary Fisher said: “The guy with ‘thick black hair and a cruel lip’ in Love So Cold is clearly Osborne.
“But lyrics like ‘told me everything about our love made sense, now you avoid me like your constituents’ don’t paint a pretty picture.
“And by Eleven, about their secret meetings in Downing Street, she’s singing ‘I thought you could love an American girl, but you only had time for Russian men’.
“The chorus goes ‘I trusted you and turned it up to eleven, but your heart’s austerity is gonna end never.’ Harsh.”
The Treasury has privately denied any link between the affair and Osborne’s surprise move to remove import duty and VAT on US tween country-pop in the March Budget.
