Fans have been speculating about the meaning of Taylor Swift's new song "Dorothea" on her newest album Evermore since it was released in December 2020. Just like with her previous album Folklore, fans were able to pick up on hints and clues, and dissect the lyrics to discover what the singer was trying to say.

Upon release, "Dorothea" reached No. 13 on the US Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart and No. 47 on Australia's ARIA Singles Chart.

The track was co-written by Aaron Dessner and Swift. It also features the vocals of Joe Alwyn.

This song tells the story of Dorothea, a small-town girl who left home to chase Hollywood dreams. But now, she is back to visit her hometown and rekindle her relationship with her former lover.

In the song, she says that she still loves her small town and will always come back to Tupelo. But she also reveals that she is now a celebrity who has made false relationships in Los Angeles.

She has friends who are now shiny, glam, and glittery with all their flashy clothing and accessories. She even says that she has a "tiny screen" that allows her to see her friends when she's away.

Several fans theorized that this track was about Swift's friend Selena Gomez. However, Swift has since confirmed that Dorothea is a fictional character.
