Taylor Swift may be linked to many a bachelor but, as it turns out, half the time she has no idea who she’s supposed to be dating.
The 24-year-old singer has admitted that she finds herself trawling the internet to find out just who the person she’s been claimed to be romantically involved with is.
Speaking to Alan Carr on this Friday’s ‘Chatty Man,’ the singer was explaining what her hit song ‘Shake It Off’ was all about when she made the admission.
Alan asked where Taylor writes her songs to which she replied: “I feel like I don’t have a special song writing lair.
“I did read an article once though which said that I had a treasure chest of ex-boyfriend’s belongings which I have to go and touch in order to write songs. That was a special day.”
Ah yes, we remember that one.
Agreeing with Alan’s summation of the story being ‘creepy,’ Taylor continued: “Yeah, that’s what I thought when I read it, and then I realised they were saying that about me, so that’s fun.
“So I wrote ‘Shake it Off’ so that it’s like a coping mechanism for when people say things like that, or when I have to Google the person they say I’m dating because I don’t know who it is, or when they say I’ve bought a house in San Diageo, and I’m like ‘but have I ever been there though?’”
But before you get up in arms that Taylor is simply being another ‘woe is me’ celeb type, she also wrote the catchy ditty for everyone who has ever felt victimised.
She continued: “I’m not the only person who deals with this kind of thing; you’re publicly humiliated, you’re gossiped about, people mess with you on a daily basis, it’s how the world works.
“And I wanted to write a song that would make people, not feel victimised when they sang it, I didn’t want it to come from a place of ‘why are you doing this to me? I feel so victimised and sad’, I wanted to be like ‘okay, you’re irritated that I’m being myself.
“You’re going to talk about me, because I’m being myself, you’re going to make things up about me, because I’m being myself. I’m just going to be myself more’”
And that’s why we love Taylor Swift.
