The country cutie, who reportedly mocked her most recent ex-boyfriend Harry Styles at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, opens up AGAIN about her spiteful songwriting in the March 2013 issue of Elle – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have,” the 23-year-old maintains, defending her ex-boyfriend inspiration. “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 them – 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.”
And despite being super successful at such a young age, Taylor admits that she isn’t totally comfortable in her own skin, and hasn’t been since she was a youth.
“Middle school was what programmed me to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time. I didn’t fit in…I’d stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in. that’s when I started to realize there’s this thing called rejection.”
