Sassy American country star Taylor Swift is known for dishing the dirt on her past relationships through her lyrics.
Now, she has revealed the criteria for getting a mention in one of her famous songs, and how her ex-boyfriends have reacted to playing muse.
Taylor, 22, has been linked to a host of young, handsome Hollywood men, includingTwilighthottie Taylor Lautner,High School Musical’sZac Efron, sexy bad boy John Mayer, and most recentlyOne Directionheartthrob Harry Styles.
But let it be known, Taylor has a two date rule. If you’ve been on two or fewer dates with the pop princess then you don’t warrant a mention in one of her songs.
“I only write songs about crazy love,” Taylor toldVulture.com.
"If I go on two dates with a guy and we don’t click, I’m not writing a song about that. It didn’t matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There’s a lot that goes on in daily life that isn’t really worth turning into a verse and a chorus.”
The leggy songstress isn’t shy about opening up through her music, and despite copping continued criticism for oversharing, she has remained true to herself and her storytelling schtick. Every album including her last, Red, is packed with stories about her exes.
"I heard from the guy that most ofRedis about," she said.
"He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy emails I got from this one dude.
“It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it – but one of those people happened to be a songwriter. So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?”
While she is unapologetic for now, will this emotional young talent still be writing about her ex-lovers when she is in her 40s?
"When I’m 40 and nobody wants to see me in a sparkly dress anymore, I’ll be like, cool, I’ll just go in the studio and write songs for kids. It’s looking like a good pension plan.”
