Taylor Swift covers the March 2009 issue of Self [No HQ version yet!] On bad boys ending up in her songs [Via People]: ‘If you don’t want me to write bad songs about you, then don’t do bad things. I don’t think honesty is ever something you should regret.
I figure if I’m going to cover things up and try to hide the way I feel and try to
be perfect all the time, people are going to see through that. And also, if you’re trying to change yourself all the time to adapt to what you think you should be, you’re going to run out of the things to be after a while.”
On what surprises her: ‘What blows me away the most is that anyone actually cares what I have to say. If I sign an autograph for someone, I don’t put them in the category of ‘fan’ and keep them at arm’s length. If we strike up conversation and we like the same things and we have the same sense of humor, then they’re my friend.’
