Taylor Swift Addresses Ex-Boyfriends and Rumors in Elle Magazine
Taylor Swift shines bright in yellow on the March cover of Elle magazine.
The 23-year-old takes over the cover in two different looks and shows off some fun fashions for the fashion mag. She also sat down for an interview where she addressed everything from her insecurity to yelling (or not yelling) at boyfriends, chasing boys, and more.
On her insecurity: “Middle school was what programmed be 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.”
On ex-boyfriends: “I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
On the speculation surrounding her songs and famous exes: “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, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”
On rumors: “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. They’re like “Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys. I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”
