VIDEO: Is One Direction’s new song about Taylor Swift?

Fans the world over have been speculating who One Direction’s new single ‘Perfect’ is about. And after the release of the music video, all answers seem to point at Taylor Swift.

Taylor and 1D’s Harry Styles dated for two months from late 2012 to early 2013 and rumour has it a number of Taylor’s 1989 songs are about the boy band member.

Here are some of the reasons fans think the track is about Tay Tay:


  • The black and white clip was shot in a New York Hotel (Taylor’s new hometown) and features all of guys.
  • One of Harry’s sections of the video is oddly similar to a part in Taylor Swift’s “Style” video, with both sitting in a hotel room with images projected on a wall behind them.
  • Also when the clip gets to these lyrics – “And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out/If you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about,” – the camera cuts right to Harry.
