Careful, Jake! Taylor Swift Says ‘Nothing Is Off-Limits’ When Writing Songs!

EW has named it’s Entertainer of the Year, and it comes as no surprise that Taylor takes home the honor. And she promises that there is no one she won’t write about!

Taylor Swift’s life is an open book in music and lyrical form. Though she never confirms or denies who inspires which songs, it’s not that hard to guess. Good thing, because we like it that way. And you know what? So does Taylor…

The 20-year-old (almost 21!) country juggernaut isn’t afraid to get personal. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, she tells the mag that writing songs about her own pain and heartache help her “more than anything,” even if there might be consequences of her words.

“I realize there are consequences to your actions. But the reason I write songs is to help clarify how I feel and get past it,” Taylor says.

And to get past breakups with the likes of Joe Jonas and John Mayer, it means she had to get really specific and really personal. “Nothing is off-limits as far as writing. You can’t have parts of your life you don’t write about,” she insists.

But don’t ask her to talk about her personal life, because when the interview steers toward new love Jake Gyllenhaal, Swifty shuts down.

When Love & Other Drugs is brought up, she smiles and simply says, “it’s a good movie.” When she’s asked about the recent photos of her frolicking around with Jake, the roadblock is hit: “I write in great detail about my personal life, but I don’t talk about it,” she responds coyly.

Congrats on being the Entertainer of the Year, Taylor! You rocked 2010!
