Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Gorgeous. By Songfacts®.

"Gorgeous" is a bouncy synth-pop cut that finds Taylor Swift singing about the pursuit of a "gorgeous" love interest. The guy is so impossibly good-looking she feels unable to even consider the possibility of them being together. You're so gorgeous I can't say anything to your face 'Cause look at your face And I'm so furious At you for making me feel this way But, what can I say? You're gorgeous Taylor told fans at her secret album listening sessions that she penned the lyrics about her British actor boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Taylor Swift references her two pet cats, during the song's bridge: There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have Guess I'll just stumble on home to my cats Alone, unless you wanna come along, oh! Taylor has two Scottish Fold cats called Meredith and Olivia. Meredith is named after Ellen Pompeo's character on Grey's Anatomy and Olivia after Mariska Hargitay's Lieutenant in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Both cats have been featured before. Meredith can be seen when she was a kitten in a wallpaper picture on Swift's work computer during the video for "Ours" and Olivia featured in a Diet Coke ad, which was soundtracked by Swift's song "How You Get The Girl."

The electro-pop infused tune was produced by Shellback and Max Martin. The Swedes have penned hit tunes for the likes of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Katy Perry as well as Swift's own previous hits "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together Again," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Shake It Off."
