Has She Found A Heartbreak Formula?

Taylor Swift has become infamous for her songs about past relationships, but it looks like she has a formula for a popular love song. She doesn't care what people think, because they keep buying her music.

Taylor Swift Taylor Swift has made a living (and a lot of money) off her heartbreak, but it turns out it may be more intentional than she would like us to believe.

"I am getting to a point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about," Swift told Rolling Stone. "And kind of mad love."

Swift began her career as a country singer, and has since turned into a pop superstar. But the whole time, she has stayed true to her formula of writing about her feelings.

"I think that for me, when you experience something that's worth writing a song about, chances are it's the same kind of intense feeling that someone else has felt, and it has led them to be sitting on a bedroom floor crying, or walking through a crowded room feeling alone or feeling misunderstood by the person who's supposed to know them better than anybody else," Swift explained.

"Those are things that make you feel really alone, and if someone's singing a song about that feeling, then you feel bonded to that person," she added. "I guess that's the only way I can find an explanation why 55,000 people would want to come see me sing."

The 23-year-old’s past boyfriends include Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer (who may have also written a song about her) and others, and she has likely written about each one (but to her credit, usually won't give away who she is writing about). Swift has become infamous for her broken relationships, but actually writes about all aspects of her love stories, from beginning to end. The fact that the breakup songs tend to be the popular ones may mean she is on to something.

Swift spoke with Rolling Stone backstage during her Red tour, and will be playing to thousands more fans before it’s over. To her, the heartbreak is worth the love of her craft.

"I think the most miraculous process is watching a song go from a tiny idea that you have in the middle of the night to a song that a group of 55,000 people is singing back to you so loudly that you can hear it louder than your own voice coming out of the speakers, in a concert in a stadium."

Comments on "Taylor Swift admits she only dates boys she can write about"

Well, She dated 6 people: Joe,Taylor,Jake,John,Conor and Harry. (in her entire carrier.) So don't try to make it feel like it's a very long list of names with saying "and others". What's the matter if she writes about her exes as long as she does not reveal who is the song about? I mean a lot of artists write break up songs and everybody's fine with that. But imagine some day you find out one of those songs might be about a celebrity guy... Will you start to hate? I mean... I really can not understand if she never reveals the guy she writes about, what is the difference between her songs and a normal lovely love song?? AND I DO buy her music, because of ART. She deserves the money she gets, as long as she is a great artist. Just unlike you Jaclyn Brandt, who gets money for writing some bunch of crap with no life.
