Fresh off her Grammy win for “Safe & Sound,” Taylor Swift opens up about her very public love life in the March issue of Elle.
The singer tells the magazine that her “boy crazy” public persona is completely fictitious. “I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumour it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me,” she says.
“They’re like ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.” I never chase boys. They don’t like it!,” she says, suggesting the media has a strong part to play in her being perceived as a boy crazed monger.
And no surprises here, the country singer says that writing songs is what helps her heal. “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,” she explains, “but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”
Apparently it’s also something she does to calm down, “I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever,” she says. Possibly adding more fuel to the fire with, “I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
