Taylor Swift and love go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly — you know, in a world where peanut butter would run off and write songs about how jelly broke her heart and ruined the perfect sandwich.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” crooner once again opened up about the L word, telling the music mag she’s “getting to a point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about.”
“I think that for me, when you experience something that’s worth writing a song about, chances are it’s the same kind of intense feeling that someone else has felt, and it has led them to be sitting on a bedroom floor crying, or walking through a crowded room feeling alone or feeling misunderstood by the person who’s supposed to know them better than anybody else,” the 23-year-old continued.
“Those are things that make you feel really alone, and if someone’s singing a song about that feeling, then you feel bonded to that person, and I guess that’s the only way I can find an explanation why 55,000 people would want to come see me sing.”
“I’m still so in love with songwriting because it’s never the same,” she added.
