She may be one of the unluckiest in love celebrities out there (at least according to tabloid reports), but that doesn’t mean that, at least in theory, Taylor Swift doesn’t know all about boys. In fact, she’s got the theory part right.
In a recent interview cited by Hollywood Life, the singer talks about relationships, love and how a girl / woman should never make her boyfriend the center of her universe.
She’s also dishing out some advice on that.
“My advice about guys has to do with how you prioritize them. They can be a part of your life but never let the guy BE your life. They can live in your world, but never make the guy your world,” the star says.
“Knowing who you are and being independent and strong will be attractive to the right guy. Trying too hard to impress a guy or putting him before your friends and family shows you’re not OK with who you are. One of my goals is always to be OK with who I am aside from love and boys,” Taylor adds.
As noted above, Taylor’s love life has long become tabloid fodder, to the point where her fellow singers joke about it at awards shows, on TV or in interviews.
She’s also earned quite a reputation of falling head over heels for a guy in a matter of days, thinking he’s “The One,” and then getting dumped for asking too much from the relationship.
After that, she writes songs about the guy and the breakup, it is being said.
Taylor herself has never denied reports about that last part, even saying that it was only to be expected for a songwriter / singer to draw on real events and personal experiences for inspiration.
She would not be an exception to that, she said. However, she denied any song in particular was about a boy she dated in particular – and she did so for Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor Kennedy.
