You’ll probably remember last year, when Taylor Swift released her Red (Taylor’s Version). Everyone was celebrating and screaming, I Bet You Think About Me at the top of their lungs.

But it didn’t end there, after releasing All Too Well (10 minute version), the internet suddenly remembered Taylor and Jake Gyllenhaal’s breakup in 2011, with everyone being particularly caught up with a certain accessory.

In All Too Well, Taylor mentions leaving a scarf at her ex’s sister’s house, with her former beau saving it as a keep sake. With the release of Red (TV), fans re-started their campaign to get the scarf returned to Taylor, and began demanding Jake, who they believe the song to be about, to give it back.

It was a full blown campaign taking over social media, and even featuring a petition trying to retrieve the scarf.

But it turns out, this all may have been unnecessary, as Taylor just opened up about the situation…and turns out Jake doesn’t even have the scarf.

Speaking at the Toronto Film Festival, Tay confessed: “Basically, the scarf is a metaphor and we turned it red because red is a very important color in this album, which is called Red,”

“And, I think when I say it’s a metaphor … I’m just going to stop.”

So turns out Scarfgate was a bit of a waste.

Red (Taylor’s Version) was her last album release, but new music is coming soon.

The singer once again announced a surprise album which already as a release date: October 21st.

Taylor is infamous for dropping surprise new music when fans least expect it and at last night’s VMA’s while accepting her award for Video Of The Year, for All Too Well (10-minute version) (Taylor’s version), she decided it was the right time to share the news.

During her speech she said, “I’m so honoured to have been recognised alongside such amazing artists and directors. For the first time in VMA history, four of the directors in the Video of the Year category are women. You guys, I’m just so proud of what we made… and we wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it wasn’t for the fans.
