Taylor Swift knew ex-beau Harry Styles was trouble from the moment that he walked in.

After much speculation, Swift, 23, has confirmed that the One Direction singer is the subject of her breakup single, "I Knew You Were Trouble."

In an interview with The Times of London magazine, the country crooner explained that she had channeled her pent up emotions from the headline-making breakup into her performance of the song at this year's BRIT Awards, where Styles, 19, also made an appearance.

"It's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is about is standing by the side of the stage watching," she told the publication.

"You're balancing the analytical side of your brain, which is telling you where to go and how to go there," Swift continued about performing the song.

"With the other side of your brain, which is saying, 'Feel everything you're singing, and show it on your face. Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song.'"

Though the former young loves didn't quite have a run-in at the awards ceremony, Styles did comment about seeing Swift for the first time since the split.

“I thought her performance was really good -- she looked great,” he told The Daily Mail.

Styles now joins the illustrious roster of celebrity exes Swift has written about, including Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer.

Do you think Swift should stop writing about her former beaus? Sound off in the comments.

    Some of you & these message boards are pathetic. You don't know either person personally & you weren't there. You are welcome to your opinions, but the claws coming out when someone disagrees & getting all huffy & puffy is sad. Also, what good songwriter doesn't take from personal experience - at least their view of it? Like her? Then listen. Don't like her? Don't listen. Very simple!

    She's not a liar!!!! She probably just made this up so everyone would stop bethering her about his painful memory!!! She beautiful, inside and out!!! So stop criticizing her!!!!!!!!! Leave her alone! <3 <3

    Harry sucks.

  • bella

    She's such a liar. She released that song last year and now decided it fits the situation.

  • PG

    She should keep on writing and singing... all the way to the bank! She's not lying or there would be lawsuits from the "subject's " of the songs. She's writing from her experiences and emotions, the fact that they are real, makes it that much sweeter... er, revenge? maybe.. who cares! Carly Simon did it too.., " Your so Vain" was written about a celeb Beau, only she's kept mum on the subject. and is still reaping the rewards!

    Omg Taylor stfU! You know it's your fault when your blammming on goregouse Harry he dident even do anything! God Taylor leave Harry alone! You started it with your album Harry dident do nothing. I'm on Harry's side. I can't stand her god...

    I'm pretty sure the song is NOT about Harry. Her album came out in October....this single was ON the album...she didn't start dating Harry until is it about him again? I'm pretty sure she meant her PERFORMANCE was about him...

  • Steph

    Man I thought the song would be called " Wrong Direction"

  • Anon

    That doesn't make sense... the first release/play of the song was November 2012. They were confirmed to be dating in December 2012. That means she wrote the song before she was with him.

  • Jason

    I just can't stand her...

  • samara

    she clearly said "the person the song is about is sitting next to the stage" so yes she did confirm it was about him

    Let me sound off a bit about the media and their joint stupidity. How the hell is that confirmation when she says its directed at him? Your reading comprehension is absolutely terrible. He did not write this about Harry. It just worked in this situation. Obviously she knew he was trouble when he cheated on her but got together with the guy again anyway.
