Relationships can be hard and messy sometimes no matter who you are. Taylor Swift dated Joe Jonas in 2008. Jonas is married to Sophie Turner now. Even though relationships and breakups are never easy, Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas, and Taylor Swift have managed to become good friends years after her split with Jonas. Fans think Taylor Swift’s new song, "Mr. Perfectly Fine," is about her ex Joe Jonas since she is releasing her old songs from her old albums from the vault.
“Mr. Perfectly Fine” is about a guy who broke up with Swift, moved on to another girl, and then acted like nothing happened between them. Swift’s other song, "Forever and Always" is probably about Jonas too because fans think she confirmed it in a 2008 interview. The album that Swift released contains songs that were written in 2008 so it would make sense if it was about Jonas. Swift is rerecording and rereleasing her old songs so she can own her own music again after a fight with her old record label, Big Machine Records. Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta (owner of the company that bought Big Machine Records, Ithaca Holdings) sold Taylor Swift’s masters for almost $300 million.

It was made clear that Swift and Jonas are on good terms now when she sent his and Turner’s baby a gift in July when her album, Folklore, came out because it is believed that Taylor was calling out Sophie and Joe in her song invisible string when the lyric stated “For the boys who broke my heart / now I send their babies presents” referring to their baby.
Swift is now dating Joe Alwyn and Jonas is married to Sophie Turner. In July 2019 when Swift released her album, Lover, Alwyn, and Swift liked each other’s Instagram posts. Their relationship is nothing like Joe and Sophie’s relationship. When Jonas broke up with her a day before their wedding, Turner explained in an interview that, "It was the worst day of our lives," she told the outlet. But thankfully, they both quickly realized they wanted to be together. "For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, 'Never mind.'" She also said that she was having a hard time with her mental health because of gaining fame at such a young age and Jonas helped calm her down. Turner said, "[Jonas] was, like, 'I can't be with you until you love yourself, I can't see you love me more than you love yourself.' That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way." Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas met in 2016 through friends and got married in 2019.
Turner’s interaction with Swift proved to fans that they are friends. When Turner praised Swift’s song on her Instagram Stories Swift responded by referencing her Game of Thrones character by saying “forever bending the knee for the queen of the north”. Swift even sent Turner’s baby a gift. Jonas and Swift have said that they are friends now. Turner is a Swiftie, which is what Swift’s fans are called.
