Taylor Swift has a knack for writing songs that aren’t just about her but also about her friends. That’s why fans are speculating that her latest track on Evermore is about Selena Gomez.
The song, titled ‘dorothea’ is one of the most popular tracks on the new album and has broken internet records. The song tells the story of a girl who left her small town in pursuit of big dreams.
But she soon finds herself losing her small town girl along the way, as she’s swept away into the glamorous world of fame and success. She’s now known for her big heart and has plenty of'shiny friends', but she misses her old self and her hometown.
During a Q&A with fans before the music video release of ‘willow’, Taylor explained that her ‘dorothea’ is actually another character in the Betty/James universe and she’s been writing from her point of view in the song for a while now. But now the song has been officially released and it’s time to see who the character is.
Dorothea is a name that has been linked to Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby daughter, but it could be about another baby. Some fan theories even say that Taylor herself has a little girl in secret.
It’s also a reference to her favourite movie The Wizard of Oz and its lead character Dorothy, who is always seen leaving her home and traveling to the colourful world of Oz with a suitcase full of shiny new friends.
