No teardrops on his guitar!
Joe Jonas doesn't kiss and tell! The 22-year-old singer told London's Metro that his new single "Love Slayer" is not about his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.
"No. That's not about her," he told the paper. "When I write songs, I don't say who they are about because I don't want the audience to relate to what was going on with me when I wrote it. You say one thing and it becomes a rumor."
Jonas famously dumped Swift, 21, during a 25-second phone call in late 2008. "It's alright, I'm cool," she later told Ellen DeGeneres. "You know what it's like, when I find that person that is right for me, he'll be wonderful. ... When I look at that person, I'm not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18. ... I looked at the call log —- it was like 27 seconds. That's got to be a record."
She even posted a video of herself holding up a Joe Jonas doll. "See, this one even comes with a phone, so he can break up with other dolls," she said, then held up a blonde doll and warned her: "Stay away from him, okay?"
Swift is notorious for writing songs about her ex-beaus; she penned "Forever and Always" about her split from the middle Jonas brother. The "Speak Now" songstress -- who's been linked romantically to Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith, Chord Overstreet, John Mayer and Adam Young -- thinks ex-boyfriends are fair game in her lyrics. "If you don't want me to write bad songs about you, then don't do bad things," she told Self magazine in 2009.
