In the former clip, the Midnights singer said: "When I was 23 and people were just making slideshows of my dating life and putting people in there that I'd sat next to at a party once and deciding that my song-writing was a trick rather than a skill or a craft.
"It's a way to take a woman who's succeeding at her job and it's figuring out how to completely minimise that skill."
And then came the latter clip with Ellen... which basically demonstrated exactly what Taylor was describing.
During the interview, the comedian pried into Taylor's dating life, first asking which song on her new album was about High School Musical star Zac Efron.
Despite the Speak Now singer denying ever having dated him, the host insisted they were a thing.
She then suggested they play a game, which was incredibly fun for Ellen and visibly painful for her guest.
One by one, Ellen showed pictures of Taylor with various men and told her to ring a bell when a man that she had dated appeared on the screen.
The men included Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas, Justin Timberlake, Ashton Kutcher, Cory Monteith, and Rob Lowe.

When Taylor repeatedly refused to engage in the game, the host grabbed the bell off her and started to ring it herself.
"Stop it, stop it, stop," Taylor eventually screamed, at which point Ellen gave up. "This makes me feel so bad about myself. Every time I come up here, you put a different dude up there on the screen, and it just makes me really question what I stand for as a human being.”
Ellen first came under fire in 2020 when allegations of toxicity at her workplace hit the media sphere.
"I learned that things happened here that never should have happened," the now-64-year-old told her audience after the claims surfaced.
She continued: "I take that very seriously, and I want to say I am so sorry to the people that were affected.
“I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realise that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show."
A year later, Ellen confirmed her show was coming to an end, while insisting the decision wasn't due to the backlash.
“When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged — and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore."
