Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift: Music is like a relationship

Taylor Swift has compared music to being in a relationship.

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' hitmaker - who is known for writing songs about past lovers - has said discovering new artists or albums can be like anything from ''a passing fling'' to finding ''the one''.

Writing a column for the Wall Street Journal newspaper, she explained: ''Some music is just for fun, a passing fling (the ones they dance to at clubs and parties for a month while the song is a huge radio hit, that they will soon forget they ever danced to).

''Some songs and albums represent seasons of our lives, like relationships that we hold dear in our memories but had their time and place in the past.

However, some artists will be like finding 'the one'. We will cherish every album they put out until they retire and we will play their music for our children and grandchildren.''

She added that the ''dream'' was to give her fans the same feelings the likes of the Beach Boys gave her father, and noted the emphasis should be on ''surprise'' rather than ''shock'' value.

Taylor continued: ''As an artist, this is the dream bond we hope to establish with our fans. I think the future still holds the possibility for this kind of bond, the one my father has with the Beach Boys and the one my mother has with Carly Simon.

''I think forming a bond with fans in the future will come in the form of constantly providing them with the element of surprise. No, I did not say 'shock'; I said 'surprise.'

''I believe couples can stay in love for decades if they just continue to surprise each other, so why can't this love affair exist between an artist and their fans?''
