12 Totally Bad-Ass Ways That Girls Have Gotten Revenge on Their Exes
When it comes to Taylor Swift, I think that I have made it pretty clear that I am not exactly one of her dedicated worshippers. I know, I know — 1989 is an unstoppable force. “Blank Space” will never not bang. Her “squad” rolls deep and is also deeply terrifying. It’s just that, for whatever reason, I can’t fully get behind her.
Still, though, I have to give credit where credit is due, and today, my credit is due to exactly how great she is at writing the perfect “getting back at your ex” song. (Which, obviously, should never be confused for a lesser “getting back with your ex” song.) I mean, this isn’t a secret, exactly — being unrecognized, particularly in the category of “vengeful breakup songs,” is not exactly Taylor Swift’s problem in life — but, still, it should be said. I mean, there’s “Picture To Burn.” “All Too Well.” “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” They all cut deep, you know?
If you can’t tell, I’ve been listening to a lot of these songs lately, and they’ve got me thinking — have some actual, IRL girls out there gotten back at their exes with the same verve and vigor of “Picture To Burn?” As it turns out, a lot of them have. In the spirit of Taylor Swift’s very best revenge-themed songs, let us all enjoy these totally awesome ways that girls got back at their exes. Vindication is sweet, is it not?
