Taylor Swift looks lovely on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK’s January 2013 issue. Inside the magazine, the singer opened up about her relationships and her songwriting.
Swift is known for writing autobiographical songs, so it’s no wonder that somes exes contact her about it. Although, she describes those ones as, “The ones that love the sound of their own voice. Whether it be an email or text message… or barrage of text messages. But it’s only happened a few times with the ones that really were choice human beings. The thing is, they’re just guessing that the song is about them. I put details in my songs but never first and last names, and I definitely don’t include social-security numbers!”
When it comes to love, Swift said, “I think that idea of love I hope for is that you learn a lesson and you don’t have to learn it twice. But the song ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ is about when I knowingly made the same mistake twice. I couldn’t resist it – there’s that temptation to push yourself into a risky situation with someone who is going to hurt you, and that’s what that song is about: not trusting your own instincts and ignoring all the red flags.”
