Taylor Swift: the world’s biggest pop star?
The blonde beauty graces the cover of New York magazine and giving a candid interview all about her love life (of course), dealing with the tabloids and getting a reaction from a certain ex-boyfriend on her latest album Red.
It’s no secret that Taylor has become infamous for writing about her relationships and what’s really happening in her personal life, something she’ll never apologize for. “I’m fine with being honest with my fans about the fact that it’s okay that everything isn’t okay all the time,” she says. “I love my life, my career, I love my friends – but things are not okay all the time. So I don’t sing about things being okay all the time.”

Taylor admits that she only writes “songs about crazy love,” adding, “if I go on two dates with a guy and we don’t click, I’m not writing a song about that. It didn’t matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There’s a lot that goes on in daily life that isn’t really worth turning into a verse and a chorus.”
Being so candid about what really goes on in her life has caused Taylor to have a reputation in Hollywood as a serial dater, as well as always heartbroken. “There’s a spin on every single celebrity out there,” she says. “I know that one of my spins in: ‘Oh, Taylor’s heartbroken. Oh, Taylor fell in love and the guy broke her heart. She’s sad all the time, and lonely.’”
Taylor has always drawn from personal experiences for her music, but it was her latest album Red that drew the most attention, causing everyone to almost play a guy as to which song was written about which of her famous ex’s. But Taylor admits that she’s actually “heard from the guy that most of Red is about. He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy e-mails I got from this one dude.” Yikes!
Taylor continues, “It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it – but one of those people happened to be a songwriter. So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?” Touché, Taylor!
