Why Hasn’t Anyone Written a Breakup Song About Taylor Swift?

"If I'm gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me," Swift tells InStyle UK in the umpteenth interview about her tendency to shame ex-boyfriends in song. "That's how it works." Which brings us to the question: How has some wannabe pop star not already dated Taylor Swift and then written a revenge breakup song? Doesn't that seem like Career Strategy 101? Or is Taylor Swift just that much savvier than your average male musician? Discuss.
