Taylor Swift's finally admitted what we've all known for months: her single I Knew You Were Trouble is about One Direction star and romancer of older ladies, Harry Styles. In an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine she said: "You’re balancing the analytical side of your brain which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying 'Feel everything you’re singing, and show it on your face. Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song'." When the interviewer asked how she felt performing the song knowing Mr. Styles was watching, she said; "Well, it’s not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching."

MIAOW! We wonder what Harry's got to say on the matter? Is a One Direction song dissing Taylor on the cards? Here's's our top 5 songs inspired by break-ups.

Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake

The girl in the video looks suspiciously like our Britters, right down to her flat cap. Luckily for JT this tune, rumoured to be regarding the pop duo's break-up sparked the beginning of his flight to superstardom and the beginning of the end for Britney.

Don't Speak - No Doubt

Written about the break-up of Gwen Stefani and fellow bandmate Tony Kanal after seven years together. The real kicker? He's still in the band, and played bass on the song. Awks.

Eamon - F**k It

One-hit wonder Eamon's harsh diatribe directed at his cheating ex-girlfriend prompted an answer song from singer Frankee which included the line, "I had better sex all alone." Ouch.

You Oughta Know - Alanis Morissette

The ultimate sisterhood anthem, Alanis has always declined to say who she wrote it about, but it's rumoured to be her ex David Coulier, an actor.

So What - Pink

Inspired by her break-up with motocross racer Carey Hart, Pink's anthem became her highest selling single ever and was downloaded 4 million times. How's that for retribution?
