Taylor Swift covers Elle Magazine March 2013 in another interview that’s basically entries ripped from her dream journal and re-typed on the Elle journalist’s iPad because paper journals don’t come with emoji. Inside the issue, Swift talks about middle school like she’s still in middle school in a contrived attempt to relate to other young women who also make bad decision and then blame other people. And this is coming from a 23-year-old adult who mocked an ex-boyfriend at this weekend’s Grammy Awards because ‘it’s not me it’s you’ is exactly that lacking in self-awareness when you’re a crazy person.
- 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 her insecurity: ‘Middle school was what programmed me 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 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 dealing with 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!’’
