08 Apr Taylor Swift Drops Unreleased ‘Fearless’ Song: ‘Mr. Perfectly Fine’
Many fans are speculating that the song was written about Swift’s former fling Joe Jonas, because of when this song was originally written.
Jonas’ wife, British actress Sophie Turner, shared that she was listening to the song on her Instagram stories.
“It’s not NOT a bop @taylorswift,” wrote Turner.
Swift then replied to the actress, saying she is “forever bending the knee for the [queen] of the north.” Swift’s response references Turner’s “Game of Thrones” character.
The New Recordings
On April 3, Swift took to twitter to share her excitement for “Fearless (Taylor’s Version).”
