Scream Queens stars discuss "Back to December" in a Facebook Live chat

Taylor Lautner didn't just go back to December on Monday—he went back to 2009!

The actor joined his Scream Queens co-stars Lea Michele and John Stamos for a Facebook Live Q&A as part of the Fox TCA presentation. After discussing the second season (and Fuller House, of course), Stamos told Michele, "I exposed who Taylor dated earlier in one of the interviews."

"You mean in life or on the show?" she asked. "Who'd you date in life?"

Blushing, Lautner replied, "I don't know."

"He dated quite a few girls," Stamos said. "There was a list. Right, Taylor?"

Michele joked, "I need to catch up."

"Um...I mean...yeah, I've dated some people," Lautner confessed.

"You dated Taylor Swift," Michele told her flustered co-star. "I remember that."

"That's hilarious," Lautner said.

But Michele was just getting started. Lautner and Swift dated briefly after they played love interests in the ensemble rom-com Valentine's Day. "Should we talk about it?" she teased.

"No!" Lautner said. "I don't know why you guys want to talk about it."

"Didn't she write a song about you?" Michele asked.

"That's what she does," Lautner replied. "She writes songs."

Stamos, who is relatively unfamiliar with Swift's work, asked which song Lautner inspired. "I think it was on the one about a sweater and a hat," Michele replied. Lautner, growing visibly uncomfortable, tried to change the conversation. "That's hilarious," he said. "Am I right, though?" Michele asked. "I listened to '22' by the pool today. I was like, 'I'm feeling 22, guys.'"

"It's good music," Lautner conceded. "I listen to it."

But Stamos wanted answers. "What song did she write about him?" he asked.

Michele couldn't remember the title or lyrics to Swift's song. "Something about, 'If I would have known / I wouldn't have done that / I'll make you a hat,'" she said. Stamos made a funny face and asked, "Made you a hat?" Michele laughed, saying, "Something about a hat! I don't know!"

"That's ridiculous!" Stamos said. "Did she make you a hat?"

Lautner replied, "She did not make me a hat."

"No, it's something about his hat!" Michele clarified. "He had a knit hat."

"I don't know where she's going with this hat thing," Lautner said.

"Am I [crazy]? Fans, people, help me!" Michele said. "There's something about a hat. Right?"

"If there is, I feel bad," Lautner said.

"It's like your hat...in December!" Michele said. Realizing it wouldn't take much longer for his co-star to put the pieces together, Lautner relented and said, "It's called 'Back to December.'"

"That's right!" Michele exclaimed. "Yes!"

"'Back to Your Hat in December?'" Stamos asked.

"I don't know about the hat," Lautner said with a laugh.

"Is it an angry song?" Stamos asked.

"No, no!" Michele said. "It's like, Taylor's the nicest."

"That's sweet," Stamos said. "Paula Abdul wrote 'Cold Hearted Snake' about me."

"I know, but she's saying...you dated Paula Abdul?" Michele asked, whipping her head around. "That did not go over my head! Because that's my generation." Stamos admitted he was only joking, as Abdul did not write "Cold Hearted" about him. "I thought you guys were high-fiving above me," Michele told Lautner and Stamos. "Like, 'Yay! We're players! Yay! We date girls!'"
