Taylor Swift is a total queen on the new cover of ‘Elle’ magazine. She’s stunning on the cover, of course, but the inside of the issue is just as exciting: Taylor spilled that writing her song ‘Clean’, about ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, helped her get over him!
If Taylor Swift, 25, ever gets bored of being a bestselling musician, she could always quit and become a supermodel. Her latest Elle magazine Women in Music cover proves that strong and sexy go hand-in-hand, as we can see from her powerful stance and smoldering expression. Plus, Taylor’s interview includes plenty of juicy tidbits as to how she felt after her breakup with Harry Styles, 21!
Taylor Swift & Harry Styles’ Breakup: Reveals ‘Clean’ Helped Her Heal
Taylor revealed to interviewer and friend Tavi Gevinson that she wrote “Clean”, a song from her latest album, 1989, while she was in London. “It hit me that I’d been in the same city as him for two weeks and I hadn’t thought about it…you know how it is when you’re going through heartbreak,” Taylor said of the period when she’d just ended things with Harry Styles.
But over the course of that couple of weeks, Taylor began to come to terms with the breakup. “You get used to not calling someone at night to tell them how your day was…and then all of a sudden one day you’re in London and you realize you’ve been in the same place as your ex for two weeks and you’re fine. And you hope he’s fine. The first thought that came to my mind was, I’m finally clean,” Taylor admitted. “You get used to not having a text message every morning saying, ‘Hello, beautiful. Good morning,'” she added. Aww.
Obviously, writing this track was therapeutic for Taylor, who had a hard time healing up until she was hit with the inspiration to write while she was in a Liberty store in London. However, Taylor is a pro at turning rough times into beautiful songs, and “Clean” is no different. Looks like she’s definitely moved on from Harry, as we can see with her spectacular Elle cover. No frowny faces here!
