Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift made music because of loneliness

Taylor Swift started writing music because she was lonely.

The 23-year-old beauty has had several high-profile flings - including One Direction singer Harry Styles - but she insisted rejection when she was younger motivated her to begin creating her own songs.

She told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: ''I started writing songs because I wasn't invited to parties and sleep-overs. I wasn't noticed by the guy I like.''

However, the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hitmaker found solace in her art and she explained she has learned ''a lot'' of important life lessons from her own music.

She added: ''Writing songs has taught me a lot. One of the hardest lessons to learn in life is there's sometimes nothing you can do to make someone like you if they don't. It's okay to let that go.''

Taylor is known for putting her personal life on display in her tracks, and she has admitted her openness in that way means she doesn't feel the need to take her clothes off like many of her pop rivals.

She recently explained: ''I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have.

''For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is.

''That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.''
