It’s hard to take Taylor Swift seriously when she claims that her entire career doesn’t hinge on the fact that she goes through men like a hot knife through butter, especially when, just yesterday, she got up in front of everyone at the Grammys and basically went “Hey, remember how I was dating that guy from One Direction? BECAUSE I DON’T, AND I WON’T LET YOU FORGET IT EVER.” So here she is in Elle magazine, trying to convince the world that she isn’t bowling through her relationships for the sake of some easy song material.
“I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
On the speculation surrounding her songs and famous exes:
“To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have. It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”
“I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me. They’re like “Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys. I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”
Honey, seriously: You’re spending all your time torturing ex-boyfriends through song. I mean yes, it takes two people to tank a relationship, but when you consider that Taylor’s written a breakup song for every guy she’s dated while they try and ignore her, it kinda makes you think that one side might be just a tad more in the wrong than the other.
