Taylor Swift went out on a date while in London with Romeo & Juliet star Douglas Booth, reports The Sun. Taylor told New York Magazine about her ‘surprise’ face: ‘Allowing yourself to feel raw, real emotions in public is something I’m never going to be afraid to do. Hopefully that’s the case, if I can remain a real human. I’m fine with being honest with my fans about the fact that it’s okay that everything isn’t okay all the time. I love my life, I love my career, I love my friends,but things are not okay all the time. So I don’t sing about things being okay all the time.’
On critics: ‘There’s a spin on every single celebrity out there,” she says. “I know that one of my spins is: ‘Oh, Taylor’s heartbroken. Oh, Taylor fell in love and the guy broke her heart. She’s sad all the time, and lonely.’ I mean, they can say all they want. Those are real feelings that every single person goes through. I think it’s okay to be mad at someone who hurt you. This isn’t about, like, the pageantry of trying to seem like nothing affects you. I’m a songwriter. Everything affects me.’
I only write songs about crazy love. If I go on two dates with a guy and we don’t click, I’m not writing a song about that. It didn’t matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There’s a lot that goes on in daily life that isn’t really worth turning into a verse and a chorus.
I heard from the guy that most of Red is about. He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it—but one of those people happened to be a songwriter.’ On men not wanting to be written about if they date her: ‘So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?’
