Taylor Swift wants to set the record straight about her love life in her new songs.
The country singer is back in the studio writing new tracks about her short-lived romance with One Direction womaniser Harry Styles and is determined to tell people ''what really happened'' between them.
She told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''When I'm writing songs, it's the only opportunity for my fans to hear what really happened. I'm in control of my life!''
Taylor is famed for putting her failed romances with the likes of John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal in song, and teen heartthrob Harry is also expected to get the break-up anthem treatment after their bitter split earlier this year.
The 23-year-old musician is heading back to Nashville, Tennessee, to pen tracks for her fifth album and is prepared for an intense period of intensive songwriting.
She said: ''This is the time where I start to really go into the studio non-stop and spend all my time writing songs. I scour my brain for every possible metaphor and analogy I can use to describe my life and emotions.''
Taylor recently admitted her friends were trying to help cure her from a ''phase'' of dating bad boys.
The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer said: ''I think it needs to change. My friends tease me about the fact that if someone seems bad or shady or like they have a secret, I find them incredibly interesting.
''That's just a phase I've been in lately. I don't think this should be how I proceed in life. It's important to be self-aware about these things because you don't want to end up with that guy.''
