We smell trouble in Taylor Swift‘s latest magazine interview. And it isn’t because she just released her Red track, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” this week. In fact, it has nothing to do with her music. After being dubbed “The Heart Break Kid” on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s annual “Hot Issue,” Taylor fights back the rumors that have been plaguing her since this past summer. But don’t worry, she also has a bunch of positive quotes — about love, of course — to spill, too…
In case you missed it, Tay was accused of pretty much kidnapping boyfriend Conor Kennedy back in August. Up until her Rolling Stone spread, it seems like she was kept in the dark about the situation. So when approached, she spat back saying, “How did I kidnap him? You can’t kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now!” She later adds, “It’s an interesting way to spin something into a story… See, this is why I don’t read stuff.”
Fortunately, the interview lightened up when the subject of “love” came up: “The way I look at love is you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget about what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the-world mentality. You have to make it work by prioritizing it, and by falling in love really fast, without thinking too hard. If I think too hard about a relationship I’ll talk myself out of it… I have rules for a lot of areas of my life. Love is not going to be one of them.”
So where did she get the idea of fairy-tale romance? She may’ve finally answered the big question: “I love the ending of a movie where two people end up together. Preferably if there’s rain and an airport or running or a confession of love. It’s a whole Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland structure here. It’s what the inside of my brain looks like, essentially.”
