"I Never Chase Boys": Taylor Swift Defends Her Love Life to Elle Magazine
Media portrayals of Taylor Swift have historically painted her as the desperate-for-love kinda gal that she's sure she's not. "I never chase boys," she told Elle. Given that no one with a dictaphone or a pen at hand whenever they meet her is really privy to the true time-line of her relationships, there is the distinct possibility that everyone's got it wrong, and that, in fact, boys chase her.
Indeed, in another Elle interview with her almost three years ago, she was described: "In person, Swift's beauty is almost otherworldly." And guys love that. In addition to her obvious good looks, Taylor seems to know what guys do like though, and her reason for not chasing boys? "They don't like it!"
Swift seems to have neglected that they probably don't like post-breakup songs being written about them only to be listened to the world over by millions of people. But that's something that she's notorious for. For her though, that's not what it's like. "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."
