Taylor Swift’s new song But Daddy I Love Him

Disney enthusiasts can easily recognize the side B track But Daddy I Love Him as a clever nod to Disney’s original animated film, The Little Mermaid. What makes it even more delightful is that the movie premiered in 1989, the very year Swift was born. Yet, for fans who appreciate Swift’s knack for weaving personal tales with a touch of mystery, some may playfully speculate that it’s a subtle nod to Harry Styles. This speculation rose after an old picture of the What Makes You Beautiful singer resurfaced. In the photo, Styles can be seen wearing a white shirt with ‘But Daddy I Love Him’ written on it.
