A lot of other Taylor Swift fans are pointing out the same connections.

It is also known that Selena Gomez’ favourite movie is ‘Wizard of Oz’ where the heroine is called Dorothy.

There is also the connection to Wizard of Oz.

Selena Gomez also played a character named Dot before.

Here are the full lyrics for you to decide whether it is true.

Hey, Dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?
When we were younger down in the park
Honey, making a lark of the misery
You got shiny friends since you left town
A tiny screen’s the only place I see you now
And I got nothing but well-wishes for ya

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooh, this place is the same as it ever was
Ooh, but you don’t like it that way

[Chorus]
It’s never too late to come back to my side
The stars in your eyes shined brighter in Tupelo
And if you’re ever tired of bеing known for who you know
You know, you’ll always know me, Dorothea (Uh-uh)
Dorothea (Ah-ah)

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh, you’rе a queen sellin’ dreams, sellin’ makeup and magazines
Ooh, from you I’d buy anything

[Verse 2]
Hey, Dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?
When it was calmer, skipping the prom just to piss off your mom and her pageant schemes
And damn, Dorothea, they all wanna be ya
But are you still the same soul I met under the bleachers? Well…

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooh, I guess I’ll never know
Ooh, and you’ll go on with the show

[Chorus]
But it’s never too late to come back to my side
The stars in your eyes shined brighter in Tupelo
And if you’re ever tired of being known for who you know
You know, you’ll always know me, Dorothea (Uh-uh)
Dorothea (Ah-ah)

Observant fans noted that Dorothea was a reference to Selena’s favourite movie which is The Wizard of Oz, while Dorothy was the name of a character Selena played in The Fundamentals of Caring. 

Some fans are convinced that the lyrics ‘You got shiny friends since you left town’ is a reference to the celebrity pals Selena has made since she moved to Hollywood from her hometown in Texas.

The lyrics where Dorothea is ‘a queen selling dreams, makeup and magazines’ maybe be referring to Selena’s new Rare Beauty makeup range as well as the myriad of magazine covers she has graced over the years.

The line ‘a tiny screen’s the only place I see you now’ may be referencing how the two friends can only communicate over FaceTime during the lockdown.

Taylor sings about ‘mom and her pageant schemes’ on the track, potentially referencing the pageants Selena took part in as a child.Follow us on Social Media
