TAYLOR SWIFT told entertainment news that not all her songs are about breakups.
Taylor Swift has become notorious for writing songs about past relationships, both the good and the bad and more importantly, about her musician and actor ex boyfriends… before her current boy toy, Conor Kennedy.
Of course, there are her fairly new hits, “Begin Again,” which talked about taking the leap and dating again after breaking up, and her latest single, “State of Grace,” to name a few.
But really, can she blame us if we only remember those bitter lyrics about her famous/rumored douchebag exes, John Mayer and Joe Jonas, among others?
Talking about her other songs, Swift appeared on “VH1 Storytellers.” She then gave her insights when she wrote, “Ours,” for the “guy nobody thought I should be with”:
“I wrote this song specifically just to play it for him, just to show him, ‘I don’t care what anyone says. I don’t care that you have tattoos. I don’t care that you have a gap between your teeth. I love you for who you are.’”
As for her more familiar chart-topping hit, “Love Story,” Swift admitted that she penned it when she was “mad at my parents because they didn’t want me to date this dude when I was 17, and I threw a fit and ran to my room and wrote [the] song on my bedroom floor.”
She argued that her songs “happen in really weird, strange, quirky ways,” and admitted that she loves “to explore the start of them, where they were first brought into the world, where you first got that first little idea.”
