Taylor Swift Covers Elle Magazine March 2013

Taylor Swift covers the March 2013 issue of Elle in a retro 60s styled dress by Louis Vuitton. In the interview, Taylor talks about her insecure feelings in Middle School, how songwriting is therapeutic and how the latest tabloid rumors have her chasing after boys.

On Her Middle School Insecurities: "Middle school was what programmed me to be semi-insecure, like, all of the time. I didn't fit in...I'd stand on the outside of the circle but I was never really in. That's when I started to realize there/s this thing called rejection."

On Writing Songs About Exes: "To me it's just writing songs the way I always have. It' 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."

On Chasing Boys: "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!"
