Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift wants 'brutally honest' friends

Taylor Swift wants her friends to always be ''brutally honest'' with her.

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer has revealed she only surrounds herself with genuine people like Selena Gomez and Emma Stone because she wants to stay grounded.

She said: ''I don't want people around me telling me what they think I'd like to hear. I love being surrounded by friends who are brutally honest and genuine.

''[We talk about] everything, except our work! It's always about reconnecting with each other, talking about relationships, love and guys - all the basic things!''

The 23-year-old country star's last album 'Red' featured deeply personal songs about her famous exes, who include Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner, and she says her next offering will explore a similar musical style.

Taylor said: ''My song writing will always have a confessional aspect, because I naturally draw on my life and my stories. I don't want to keep repeating the same things, though - you want to be able to explore those themes in different ways and have something new to say.''

The blonde beauty says she doesn't actively set out to be a role model for her young fans, but is proud to inspire other girls through her music.

She told LOOK magazine: ''I don't have any of that in my head when I write them. It's maybe a natural extension of me talking about not taking crap from people that others might take inspiration from. That would make me very happy if my songs can reach out to people and lead them to do something positive.''
