Taylor Swift Says Red Scarf in 'All Too Well' is just a Metaphor

Sep 16, 2022 0 comments

Jake Gyllenhaal hasn’t seen the light of day since the release of re-recording of Taylor Swift’s Red, which is now under the ownership trademark Taylor’s Version. One of the highlights of this album is a song entitled All Too Well, particularly its heavily anticipated 10-minute version that is allegedly about the actor and Taylor’s relationship with him back in 2010. 


Along with its release, the controversy surrounding their previous relationship has resurfaced, which centers on a scarf referenced a few times in the song. A red scarf is also seen in the short film for the song and in the music video for one of “*The Vault” tracks for Red, I Bet You Think About Me.


Taylor Finally Denies the Scarf  Allegations 

 

During her guesting on the Toronto International Film Festival to present the All Too Well short film, Taylor finally concludes all the controversy surrounding the scarf in the song. 


“Basically, the scarf is a metaphor and we turned it red because red is a very important color in this album, which is called ‘Red.’ And, I think when I say it’s a metaphor, I’m just going to stop.”


Meanwhile, Taylor still did not confirm who the song is about. 


What the Gyllenhaal’s Have to Say


What really strengthens the ‘scarf’ theory is that Taylor is actually seen wearing a black scarf in photos with their actor during their relationship. Jake’s sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal was also asked about the scarf since it was mentioned in the song that the scarf was left in her house. Here’s what the actress had to say during her guesting at Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen back in 2017.



“I never understood why everybody asked me about this scarf. I am in the dark about the scarf. It’s totally possible. I don’t know. I have been asked this before. ”


After months of silence since the release of Red (Taylor’s Version), Jake Gyllenhaal comes clean on Esquire, insisting that the song isn’t about him but the fans and that artists have a right to reflect their personal experiences in their music. However, he also says that artists are responsible for the messages in their music and that Taylor should do something about the cyberbullying her fans have started since the re-release of her album.


With all the speculation surrounding her music, just proves how much of a lyrical genius Taylor is and that her songs have an impact on her listeners. As she slowly discloses the details behind her song, she forms a closer bond with her fans, but with the rest of its details remaining a mystery, it leaves fans to interpret the song in a way that resonates with them personally. Hopefully, we get more of these intriguing songs from Taylor when she releases Midnights on October 21st.
