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:
â€œMiddle school was what programmed me be to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time.Â I didnâ€™t fit inâ€¦.Iâ€™d stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in.Â Thatâ€™s when I started to realize thereâ€™s this thing called rejection.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend.Â Ever.Â Iâ€™m not a yeller.Â Iâ€™m not a fit thrower.Â If something is done, itâ€™s done.â€
On the speculation surrounding her songs and famous exes:
â€œTo me itâ€™s just writing songs the way I always have.Â Itâ€™s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didnâ€™t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, thatâ€™s their right, but itâ€™s all coming from the exact same place as where I started.Â Itâ€™s just something I do to feel better.â€
On dealing with rumors:
â€œIâ€™m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say Iâ€™m chasing somebody who doesnâ€™t like me as much as I like him â€“ people love that angle on me.Â Theyâ€™re like â€˜Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.Â I never chase boys.Â They donâ€™t like it!â€™â€
