Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” includes one of the great misheard lyrics from the last year: “All the lonely Starbucks lovers.” The real lyric does not include any product placement – “Got a long list of ex-lovers,” Swift sings on the track – but that hasn’t stopped people from latching on to the incorrect version. Even Swift herself acknowleged the “Starbucks lovers” lyric on Valentine’s Day of this year.
Sending my love to all the lonely Starbucks lovers out there this Valentine’s Day…..even though that is not the correct lyric.

To which Starbucks responded:
@taylorswift13 Wait, it’s not?

But now, months later, it seems Swift’s own family is on Team “Starbucks lovers.” Swift posted this on Saturday.
“hahah it really does sound like Starbucks Lovers…” -my mom just now who is SUPPOSED TO BE ON MY SIDE Smh.
