Taylor Swift continues her media takeover by appearing on the latest issue of Elle magazine. Inside, the singer/songwriter spoke up to defend herself.
The controversial singer explained, “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 him – people love that angle on me.”
She continued, “They’re like ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.’ I never chase boys. They don’t like it! 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.”
Swift also spoke about the meaning behind her lyrics. “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.”
