Taylor Swift is Seventeen Again
This is Taylor’s second Seventeen cover, her first was exactly a year ago – the magazine’s May 2008 issue. Hare are some great interview excerpts:
You wrote “Forever and Always” about your breakup with Joe Jonas. Do you regret putting those emotions out there? Writing songs about people is the only way I know how to do things. I mean, I can’t wish I hadn’t written a song about someone, because if I hadn’t, that song wouldn’t exist. I just don’t find any joy in writing about things I haven’t been through.
What’s your favorite thing to write songs about? “Right now, my favorite thing to write about is love. And breakups. And boys. And feelings. Honesty is a big part of my writing, because when I was younger and fell in love with songs I’d hear, I would always wonder who that song was about. It would have totally broken my heart to know it wasn’t about anyone and was just written so it could be on the radio.”
Do you have a close group of girlfriends that you always rely on to get you through a hard time? ” In Nashville, it’s Abigail [who's mentioned in Taylor's song "Fifteen"], and Kellie Pickler. In L.A., Selena Gomez is one of my best friends. I’m also really close with Miley [Cyrus], Demi Lovato, and Emma Stone.
