Taylor Swift doesn’t just get inspiration for her music through multiple heartbreaks.. She also steals from other musicians.
Singer Matt Nathanson is calling Taylor out for stealing some of his lines. There is a line off her new album from the song ‘All Too Well’ that is almost identical to a line in his song ‘I Saw’ from his 2003 album called ‘Beneath the Fireworks’. And he has a good point. Taylor’s line, says, “And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to.” Matt’s line says, “And I’ll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to.”
Taylor is a fan of Matt’s music too. She’s had lyrics to his songs written on her arm at multiple shows. When Matt noticed the ripped off line, he tweeted, “She’s definitely a fan… Now she’s a thief.”
He deleted the post pretty quickly, probably because the Swifty fans started coming after him.
But later, he started defending himself again. He tweeted, “So far, my favorite thing about today is the wave of @taylorswift13 fans calling me a [rhymes with stick] on Twitter for writing ‘I Saw’ in 2003.”
Taylor has yet to comment on this thievery.
Matt Nathanson- I Saw
