When Taylor Swift fanatics heard the news that Tay-Tay was coming to the Magic City ... OMG, they screamed uncontrollably. Then they immediately started planning out their concert outfits.

Some decided to show support by wearing Taylor's Red Tour t-shirts. Others decided to get a bit more creative with red tutus, bandanas, Stetson hats, and red star-shaped sunglasses, not to mention "Dancing like we're made of starlight" and "Loving Taylor is red" signs.

We here at Crossfade caught up with some T-Swift superfans and found out which of Taylor's exes they believed was the inspiration for "I Knew You Were Trouble" and what they had to say to all those haters out there.
