This month, the stunning Taylor Swift covers the March issue of ELLE, on newsstands 2/19. The We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together songstress dishes about her middle school insecurities, her ex-boyfriends, and her songwriting process.

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 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 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!’”

I really feel that Taylor is the biggest bitch in person. She just seems so full of herself.

I really wish she would disappear from the entertainment, celebrity tabloid, and now fashion/modeling world. Never have liked her brand; whatever it is. I turned off the Grammys the other night because of her asinine dig at a previous purely PR relationship.

God. How I hate her. She’s such an egocentric person, it’s disgusting. Maybe she’s also at fault sometimes and not only her boyfriends.. Always blaming and putting them in the bad light. Tsk.

Taylor Swift likes dark meat
After publicly humiliating Harry Styles at the Brit Awards she was flirting with his black friends Jordan Stephen and Frank Ocean. After whoring with so many white men it’s about time Taylor Swift started whoring with niggers as well. Think about all of the new songs she could write because of the new boyfriends.
