Taylor Swift is perfectly styled for a holiday inspired issue of Elle Canada.
The country/pop crossover sensation dished to Elle about the subject she’s asked about most — relationships. Swift explained, “I have a lot of sayings. Like, if you’re debating whether you want to break up with a guy or not, I always ask myself the simple question of ‘Do you want more or not?’ When they leave and go home to their house, do you wish they would turn around and come back to yours? And ‘I don’t know’ usually equals no in almost any scenario. I was just talking to my friend about that today.”
Relationships have given Swift plenty of fodder for her songs, and she doesn’t seem to mind. “I just don’t feel like writing songs about anything other than human emotions because it’s such a fascinating thing… What else is there other than love?”
The singer knows what she has and she makes sure it stays that way. “I’m always analyzing everything, so I thought a lot about what my life might be like if this actually happened to me. I don’t think I’d get to be the same person I would watch all these True Hollywood Stories, and it seemed like a lot of people didn’t get to live the life that they loved once they’d made it.”
