Taylor Swift Says Writing Songs About Her Exes Is "Just Something She Does to Feel Better"


is becoming so notorious for writing songs about her exes that some famous dudes might be hesitant to get involved with her.  But in a new interview with "Elle" magazine, Taylor says she isn't using her songwriting to get back at anyone.  She says writing about failed relationships just makes her FEEL BETTER.

She says, "To me it's just writing songs the way I always have.  It's me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn't understand, writing a song, and understanding it better.   If people want to dissect the lyrics, that's their right, but it's all coming from the exact same place as where I started.  It's just something I do to feel better."

She also claims she doesn't freak out on her boyfriends.  She says, "I don't think I've ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend.  Ever.  I'm not a yeller.  I'm not a fit thrower.  If something is done, it's done.”    Oh, and Taylor says she isn't chasing guys around town.   She says, "I'm sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I'm chasing somebody who doesn't like me as much as I like him, people love that angle on me.  They're like 'Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.'  I never chase boys.  They don't like it!"
