James and Inez (mentioned in the song) are the names of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's first two daughters, leading everyone to assume that Betty is the name of the couple's third child.

"I've always loved that, in music, you can kind of slip into different identities, and you can sing from other people's perspectives, so that's what I did on this one". "So that's what I did on this one".

Eagle-eyed fans of the singer were convinced the name was after her pals' youngest, since their eldest was previously featured on Swift's hit single, Gorgeous, in 2017.


Taylor indirectly confirmed this to be true in an interview for Country Radio on August 6."I named all the characters in this story after my friend's kids, and I hope you like it".

Last month, Taylor Swift shocked the world by releasing her eighth studio album, Folklore, seemingly out of nowhere. Not content with the explanation of production difficulties related to Covid-19, or something as basic as a savvy marketing move, they're convinced a big announcement will accompany the bonus track.

It's not the first time James Reynolds has been involved in a Taylor Swift song. Later lines include: "You heard the rumors from Inez/ You can't believe a word she says" and "She said, 'James, get in, let's drive". Can we all crawl inside that piano with you and live in this album....


The American smashed into No. 1 with her album "Folklore", which garnered a 9/10 on Clash. "Like you, Folklore is full of heart, soul, humour, passion, intelligence, wit, whimsy, reality, imagination, strength, vulnerability, and above all things LoVe", the Gossip Girl actress wrote on Instagram on July 25.

In a new radio interview on Wednesday, the ten-time Grammy victor, 30, addressed speculation over her use of the names James, Inez and Betty on her eighth studio album, Folklore.
