Taylor Swift has revealed in an interview that her new album 1989, due out on October 27, is less about her past relationships than her previous records. Her tendency to be confessional in her songs made her somewhat of a national punchline to comedians and a beloved martyr to her loyal fans! So, yeah, her songwriting style is her gift and her curse!
"[Red] was a devastating record," Swift told Fusion. "It was about dealing with an intense heartbreak."
Was Harry Styles of One Direction the breaker of the heart? Coulda been...
Swift said that 1989 is about the rebound and influenced by "the phase after that where you brush yourself off and you're okay...[Writing Red] I was very enamored by romance and the idea of that...At this point, I just want to be with my friends and I want to make music and I want to play shows. I want to travel the world and I want to define my life on my own terms. That's my list of priorities now, which is different than it was a couple of years ago."
Amen, sista! #TaylorSwiftGirlPower. #DontNeedAMan.
