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:
Ã¢â¬ÅMiddle school was what programmed me be to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time.ÃÂ I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t fit inÃ¢â¬Â¦.IÃ¢â¬â¢d stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in.ÃÂ ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s when I started to realize thereÃ¢â¬â¢s this thing called rejection.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅI donÃ¢â¬â¢t think IÃ¢â¬â¢ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend.ÃÂ Ever.ÃÂ IÃ¢â¬â¢m not a yeller.ÃÂ IÃ¢â¬â¢m not a fit thrower.ÃÂ If something is done, itÃ¢â¬â¢s done.Ã¢â¬Â
On the speculation surrounding her songs and famous exes:
Ã¢â¬ÅTo me itÃ¢â¬â¢s just writing songs the way I always have.ÃÂ ItÃ¢â¬â¢s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, thatÃ¢â¬â¢s their right, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s all coming from the exact same place as where I started.ÃÂ ItÃ¢â¬â¢s just something I do to feel better.Ã¢â¬Â
On dealing with rumors:
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say IÃ¢â¬â¢m chasing somebody who doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t like me as much as I like him Ã¢â¬â people love that angle on me.ÃÂ TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re like Ã¢â¬ËOh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.ÃÂ I never chase boys.ÃÂ They donÃ¢â¬â¢t like it!Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
