Taylor Swift has released a love song as her new single. You know what that means — it's time for internet to play another rousing game of Name That Heartthrob! People are clamoring to figure out who the lyrics of Taylor's new single, "Gorgeous," are about.  

Calls are going out on Twitter for people to solve this mystery:

Taylor told fans at a private show that the song was about meeting and falling for her partner of one year, Joe Alwyn:

But that didn't fly with fans:

Let's examine the clues, shall we?

The first verse offers our first clue: 

You should take it as a compliment
That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk
You should think about the consequence
Of your magnetic field being a little too strong
And I got a boyfriend, he's older than us
He's in the club doing I-don't-know-what
You're so cool it makes me hate you so much

The line "he's in the club doing I-don't-know-what" could be a reference to her older DJ ex, Calvin Harris. 

So if he was the boyfriend she already had, then the song can't be about him. 

Maybe it's Tom Hiddleston?

The bridge brings us to the line "whiskey on ice, sunset and vine" — another line some fans see clues in:

But the age issue knocks Tom Hiddleston out of contention, doesn't it? 

That's not a problem in some minds:

People are holding on tight to the idea that the song is about Hiddleston:

But some Swift fans are more than happy to speak up for Team Joe:

Case. Closed.
