(Newser) – Taylor Swift's new album, of course, contains quite a few references to ex-boyfriends, including the breakup anthem, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." In her honor, Radar rounds up nine more celebrities who got revenge via music:

  • Nick Lachey wrote "What's Left of Me" about ex-wife Jessica Simpson.
  • Outkast hit "Ms. Jackson" is reportedly about Erykah Badu, who had a baby with Andre 3000.

  • Madonna's "Miles Away" is said to be about Guy Ritchie, written months before they divorced.
  • Everyone assumes Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" is about Britney Spears, particularly since he cast a Brit lookalike in the video.
