Sneaky, sneaky Taylor Swift!
While the country cutie is notorious for spilling the deets on her failed relationships in the lyrics to her wildly successful, painfully catchy songs, she recently revealed that when breaking up with one of her famous, unnamed ex-boyfriends, she promised him he would NOT become the source of inspiration for her album!
And, of course, she's the first to admit that it was a bold-faced LIE!
"The only time that has ever crossed someone's mind was when we were in the process of breaking up. Of course I was like, 'Oh, don't worry, I won't.' And then I did. Look, it's not like it was written somewhere in the fine print that I write songs about my life. If we break up, I'm going to write about it. But I'm probably also going to write about when I fell in love with you. So there's an upside. I don't talk about who it is specifically because these are real people. You try to give insight as to where you were coming from as a writer without completely throwing somebody under the bus.”
Well, with the exception of Dear John! LOLz!
We kid! We don't know if it was REALLY about him
…even if though it most definitely was!
But hey! We need emotional honesty to connect with artistic works…and to be emotionally honest, people have to write from what they know!
And obviously, given her massive success, people connect with Taylor's music for that very reason!
So hey! By this point, anyone getting involved with her romantically should know what they're getting themselves into…and be aware that while some of the bad might be documented, as she states herself, there's also going to be the good!
And that's just life in a nutshell, isn't it? LOLz!
