Taylor Swift: ‘I Never Chase Boys!’

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Taylor Swift may have made a cheeky little jab at ex Harry Styles during “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” at the Grammys, but she told ELLE magazine she’s pretty calm when it comes to her former loves.
“I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever,” she told the mag, which features the singer in a yellow checkerboard patterned dress on the cover of its March 2013 issue. “I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”
Taylor explained that her songs – which are rumored to be about her exes (like John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner), just come from her need to reflect on things.
“To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have,” she said. “It’s 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.”
The singer also made it clear that she’s not the kind of girl who makes a beeline for 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,” she said.
