Taylor Swift has appeared on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert ', in an extended bit where she tells the host ' Hey Stephen ' isn ' t about him . This served as the setup for an extended joke in which Swift reveals she knows numerous incredibly specific details about Colbert ’s life and career. Swift goes on to display a mood board that she says originally inspired the song , which is covered in images of the late night personality.

“ Hey Stephen ” appears on Swift ’s album Fearless and the re-recorded version of the project titled Fearless ( Taylor ’s Version). The late night host on Tuesday presented a clip from The Colbert Report where he showed off a signed copy of Fearless that Swift had gifted him. Colbert , in the clip and on The Late Show , was convinced that the song was about him . Swift denied the allegations during the skit but suspiciously knew a lot about the comedian including the exact location of his old office. The singer said to get back into the headspace to re-record “ Hey Stephen ,” she created a mood board

"No, Stephen. I first recorded that song in 2008, I think I was like 18," Swift said of "Hey Stephen," which she allegedly wrote about country music singer Stephen Barker Liles, whom she toured with at the time.

"Yes. I was also a younger age," Colbert responded, which led the "Lover" songstress to rattle off Colbert's exact age ("44-years-179-days-old"), much to his surprise.

"Wow that is shockingly suspicious," he said in awe.

"Like I said, I'm a big fan," Swift responded.

Colbert went on to thank Swift for the signed CD she gave him when her original Fearless album dropped in 2008. But when she then revealed the exact address of Colbert's old New York office, Colbert grew even more suspicious.

"Are you sure 'Hey Stephen' isn't about me?" he asked again.

The lyric video showed Taylor as a little girl, growing up in Pennsylvania in the 1990s, before stepping into the spotlight.

Taylor Swift just spent a ton of time discussing “ Hey Stephen .” The 31-year-old pop star dropped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, April 13, where the host asked whether the song from her recently re-recorded 2009 album Fearless was actually written with him in mind. After Stephen commented that this was “shockingly specific,” she shared that she recently “dug out my old mood board .” Taylor then pulled out a large board covered in photos of the host, along with a pic of a large slice of pizza.

"It's just the power of music Stephen," Swift explained. "Good songs, they just make you feel like it's about you."

Explaining to Colbert that "it was really fun" to record "Hey Stephen" again, Swift whipped out a hand made "mood board" that she claimed inspired her to write the song originally. And much to Colbert's surprise, the mood board featured all photos of him.

"Taylor, those are all pictures of me," Colbert pointed out.

But Swift continued to deny Colbert was behind her song's inspiration. "Don't flatter yourself," she said. "'Hey Stephen' is not about you anymore than my album 1989 is about that year you spent waiting tables on the lunch shift at Scuzzi, an Italian restaurant in the river-north area of Chicago."

As Colbert continued to express shock at the singer knowing so much about his life, she referenced one of her songs from her 2019 album Lover by telling him, "You need to calm down."

Taylor Swift stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert tonight (April 13), where she was immediately asked by Colbert if the Fearless song “ Hey Stephen ” was about him . This turned into an entire bit where she revealed a bunch of intimate details she knew about Colbert ’s life and work.

That man is Stephen Colbert . Colbert tried to get to the bottom of it during an interview with its creator on The Late Show . Truth be told, it wasn’t so much an interview as a sketch. The late night host opened the segment by giving his viewers the low-down on Swift ’s campaign to rerecord her entire catalog, starting with Fearless ( Taylor ’s Version). Swift then flexed her comic-acting chops by walking us through some stalker-ish knowledge of Steph’s little-known table-waiting history and every fine detail down to his social security number. “You Need to Calm Down” also isn ’ t about Stephen , maybe.

"Which by the way," Swift added, "is also not a song about you."

However, Colbert was not convinced and continued to press Swift about "Hey Stephen," leading the singer to hilariously reveal that the song is actually about "master of horror" author Stephen King.

"But Taylor, even if that's the case, you can understand why maybe I thought the song was about me," said Colbert.

"I mean not really, to be honest," Swift responded. "If I was gonna write a song about you, I would just be like ... I mean it's too obvious to call it 'Hey Stephen'. I would call it something more detailed, song writing is all about the details."

Swift then began rattling off numerous facts about Colbert's life in hypothetical song lyrics. And as the talk show host was now more convinced than ever about his theory, Swift signed off with some advice for Colbert. "That seems like a you-thing for you to sort of process," Swift said. "But the thing about that feeling is that I think you should address it within yourself. I think it's something that you should process and then take the feeling that you're feeling and just shake it off."

Swift said with a smile, joining Colbert from her recording studio.

To mark the end of the funny sketch, Swift received a phone call, apparently from King, 73, and greeted him by saying, "Hey Stephen."

Swift released the first re-recording of her six albums with her previous label Big Machine Group last week. The new Fearless album's version includes six never-before-released tracks that Swift wrote during the same time but were scrapped from the original album.

In November 2020, Swift was legally allowed to re-record her first five albums, which Scooter Braun gained ownership of last year following his $330 million deal with Big Machine Label Group. Swift previously spoke out after Braun sold her masters to a company called Shamrock Holdings for $300 million.

Since leaving Big Machine, Swift signed with Republic Records and Universal Music Group in an agreement to own the rights to her music going forward. In 2019, she released Lover, followed by her two pandemic albums folklore and evermore in 2020.

Yes, Taylor Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn did win a Grammy for Folklore .
The singer originally credited Alwyn under the alias William Bowery. Fans suspected that it was Alwyn who Swift was really talking about, and her acceptance speech after winning album of the year seemingly confirmed that when she gave him a shout-out and acknowledged his support in making the album by saying, "Joe is the first person I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine.
