Taylor Swift revealed to Tiger Beat that seeing her crush around school used
to make her feel like crying. ‘The guy I liked never noticed me. I ran into this problem a lot in junior high.
I always feel for the guys who only liked popular girls. I got sad that my crush didn’t like me back. It was that frustration that inspired me to write my songs.’
Advice on how to snag a boy: ‘I think the best thing is to not come right out and tell your crush you like him. Place little hints. Go up and talk to him, but never chase a boy. It’s their least favorite thing.’
On the best song she’s ever written: ‘I wrote the song ’15’ about what my best friend Abigail and I went through during our freshman year in high school. We both had our first boyfriends, she got her heart broke, and I broke up with my boyfriend to follow my dreams.’
