Taylor dishes on EX Boyfriends in Elle Magazine?

By this point we all know that Taylor Swift has a thing for writing songs about ex boyfriends.  However, if you pick up the latest issue of Elle Magazine, you'll read about Taylor and her insecurities and about love!

“Middle school was what programmed me to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time.  I didn’t fit in….I’d stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in,” Taylor confessed. ”That’s when I started to realize there’s this thing called rejection.”

Her music, in my opinion atleast, makes Taylor come off as someone who could often argue....verbally of course....with her boyfriends.  However, she doesn't think so!

“I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend.  Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”

So it sounds like to me, Taylor only "yells" at boys through song, right?

“To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have.  It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started.  It’s just something I do to feel better.”
