Taylor Swift wasn't exactly gushing about her budding relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, but it was more about what she didn't say than what she did to Ellen Degeneres on Friday's show.
"I'm always optimistic about love," the singer said when asked how she felt abotu romance at the moment. "Always, sometimes," she clarified. "But right now you are you?" DeGeneres asked. "Well, why wouldn't anyone be," Taylor said coyly.
When Ellen pressed for specifics about her rumored romance with Jake Gyllenhaal, nine years her senior, Swift didn't deny it.
Taylor and Jake have been spotted hanging out in New York, apple picking over the weekend.
She also didn't deny that her new song "Dear John", about a romance with an was written about John Mayer.
Taylor said of the ballad, "That song kind of is what it is." "OK, great," Ellen responded. "We know the answer now. It's about him. You didn't dispute it so obviously..."
Come on, Taylor, don't pull an Alanis and not confirm what we already know for years!
