Taylor Swift usually keeps pretty mum on who the specific subjects of her hit songs are, but that doesn’t mean she’s not willing to tell the stories of each relationship.
Taylor got up close & personal with the students at Harvey Mudd College when she performed a private concert as part of VH1’s Storytellers series. The show aired last night and you can watch it all here.
Taylor took the stage to perform “You Belong With Me,” “Red,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Ours,” “Our Song,” “Mean” and “Love Story,” sharing the stories behind each song with the audience. She even gave fans the chance to ask her questions. Taylor just has a way with telling stories and you will definitely want to check out the episode of you’re a Swiftie!
Taylor also takes the cover of Harper’s Bazaar where she shows off some great vintage pants outfits. Pants are something you’ll rarely see TSwift in, as she is very much a dress person.
“There’s just something so feminine about a dress,” she shared. “Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife—which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason—I just really like dresses.” SO just how many does she own? “Hundreds. Because I’m in a predicament where I can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines, so”—she starts laughing—”unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time.”

So now that we know about Taylor’s fashion, what about when it comes to her bff’s like Selena Gomez & Emma Stone, boys and reading gossip?
“We never talk about fashion, about career, about our ambitions or our projects,” she said of her friends. “We just talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.”
She then opened up about what she’s learned about relationships, “It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up.” Relationships are “the ultimate collaboration,” she adds, but sometimes “it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.”
She continued about paying attention (or not) to the media. “What I had to learn to do, in order to maintain a general happiness in my life, was to stop reading everything and then it gets really bad if you go through a breakup and those blogs have these polls asking, ‘Who should they date next?’ And you’re just sitting there staring at the laptop bawling.” She pauses. “But you can live in a normal world where a breakup is just a breakup if you don’t expose yourself to what’s being speculated about yourself. That’s where I live now.”
