“If a man dates me, he’s kind of signing a waiver saying he’s cool with me writing songs about him. I write songs about my life: it’s not something I’ve kept secret and pretty much everyone knows that, so no, I don’t worry that a new man will get upset about something I write. That being said, it’s mind-blowing how some guys have just handed me inspiration for some of these songs on a plate. Some have said, ‘Please don’t write about me,’ but only when we’re in the process of breaking up.”
Oh my gosh, this. I mean, it’s nothing earth-shattering or anything, because duh, we all know that Taylor Swift gets her inspiration for songs from her very public and prolific relationships, like those with Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, and Jake Gyllenhaal, but come on. It’s all fairly obvious: we know that Taylor loves the guys, and the guys all love Taylor, so we really shouldn’t rag on girlfriend for stating a fact.
To be fair, Taylor also said this: “My brother gives really good advice from a guy’s perspective. He’ll always tell me, ‘You know there are no rules, right? So if you want to text this guy back, text him back.’ Saying that, I don’t do the chasing. You kind of learn that in school,” and you can definitely take what she said right with a grain of salt, a shot of Pepto Bismol, and a couple-two-three Tylenol PMs to sleep off the BS hangover the best you can, because that bit about “I don’t do the chasing”? Oh my God. I just can’t even.
