‘I don’t think I have ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I am not a yeller. I am not a fit thrower,’ contactmusic.com quoted Swift as saying.
While Swift’s songs are inspired by her former boyfriends — Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles and John Mayer — she insists she is not trying to get back at them through her lyrics.
‘To me it is 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,’ the 23-year-old said.
‘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,’ she said.
Swift said her middle school was to blame for making her insecure.
‘I didn’t fit in... I would stand on the outside of the circle (in school) but I was never really in. That’s when I started to understand there’s this thing called rejection,’ she said.
