Who Is the Song (Supposedly) About?

I can imagine it feels pretty good to have a song written about you — unless of course it's an angry breakup anthem. Some of the best love songs (and antilove songs) have true stories behind them, so in honor of the Grammy Awards this weekend, can you guess who these songs are rumored to be written about?

Who Is the Song (Supposedly) About?

"Cry Me a River," Justin Timberlake

I just Googled the "Uptown Girl" question, and he did write the song about Elle MacPherson. It was a surprise to me as well.

Billy Joel dated Elle McPherson before Christie Brinkley? I didn't know that. What was she like 18? That was the very early 80s. Surely not.

Buzz, I think you are thinking that because at one of the concerts he changed the lyrics so it would sound like it was intended for Camille Belle. I think it was shortly after they broke up.
