Taylor Swift: I Don't NEED A Boyfriend!

After getting her heart broken by players like Joe Jonas and John Mayer, can you blame the blonde beauty for her attitude toward guys?

Taylor Swift doesn’t have much to be heartbroken over. Her third album Speak Now is a smash success; she’s setting Hot 100 records right and left; and she’s even venturing into the fragrance market! However, in a new interview with the Daily Mail, our favorite 20-year-old country crooner brings some past heartache to light.

Lately, Taylor has been seen with Jake Gyllenhaal, but that doesn’t mean his affection is what completes her. “I’m not a mopy single girl,” she promises. “I wake up in the morning and think, ‘What do I need to do today?’ and at no point do I think, “I need to find a boyfriend.’”

Taylor insists she’s single because, as you can imagine, she’s entirely too focus on her red-hot career. She gives her “heart and soul on stage every night” and doesn’t feel right offering a boyfriend “what’s left over.”

Boys aren’t the only tribulation Taylor’s had to face, she also had to deal with being a loner growing up.

“In school, I dealt with a bunch of different kinds of being alone,” Taylor says in the interview. “And the only thing that got me through really tough days was writing songs about it. I would sit there on those lonely days and say, ‘It’s OK, because I can write a song about this later.’”

Although Taylor is speaking about those experiences in past tense, she admits in the article that negative comments made online still affect her. “It hurt me deeply in school and it hurts me deeply now,” she says.

Successful. Independent. Beautiful. Strong. Are there any reasons NOT to love Taylor Swift?

Person below me, get a life seriously you must have A LOT of time on your hands to write something that long about Taylor. The reason she is getting lots of publicity is because lots of people but her music and, I am one of those people so stick it up your ass. At least shes a classy woman, Miley Cyrus could learn something from this lady. ;)

Though she is 20 she still needs to grow up and act a little more her age…I believe Selena Gomez acts a lot more mature than Taylor. Okay i will stop compering…
Furthermore, one can see how Taylor is still just a kid i mean she just dates someone and writes a song of them. As a girl if i dated a guy who keeps doing that i wouldn’t want to date them that’s immature.

I don’t know if many of you agree with me that her songs are all the same i love someone it didn’t work out boo! I’m going to go cry…
Its a little old…from the start i thought it was wonderful because i can relate to her. Nonetheless, as an artist i think she should reconsider re-inventing herself. Not saying becoming the new Miley, but something that is a lot more incredible…i know she can shes TAYLOR HELLO!

like her voice, and this look is an improvement from the ringlets, flower prints, and fluffy minis… however, she is pretty boring and i was a little put off by her saying that she always gets the last word. kind of obnoxious. but, whatever, as far as celebrities go- she seems incredibly grounded and like a good person, so i do wish her the best though feeling a little bit sick of her these days.
