Taylor Swift Won't Talk Trash About John Mayer -- She Prefers to Sing It

glamour magazine taylor swiftYou know where I would really love to be a fly on the wall? In the meetings between Taylor Swift and her publicity team. I wouldn't be surprised if it's in those meetings that she's a whole different kind of gal. As in, 180 degrees from the sunshine, rainbows, and pony-loving country princess she's marketed as. Because I'm just not buying that act anymore. How can you be so shocked and so surprised every time you win an award -- when you've been winning them for at least three years?! Likewise, I'm not sure how Taylor can be so shocked and so surprised that a women's magazine is asking her about her dramatic love life ... when she's basically built her success by capitalizing on it!

Case in point: When Taylor sat down with ABC's Cynthia McFadden for Nightline and Glamour's November issue, McFadden brought up how John Mayer recently told Rolling Stone that Taylor's song "Dear John" is about him. Taylor's reaction?


Basically: The NERVE of John Mayer to be so "presumptuous" that she should write about him. Oh, and yeah, the NERVE of Cynthia McFadden, to assume Taylor pays attention to filthy rumors about her love life! She elaborated, specifically:

I never disclose who my songs are about. ... I don't talk about my personal life in great detail. I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you're going through.

Oh, and wait, there's this gem, too!!

I think some people think it's just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I'm dark and twisty and complicated, because I'm not that either. It's just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.

Eww! Princess Taylor, I believe you've grated on my very last nerve! This chick has been making a name for herself by dating every young (and even not-so-young) stud in Hollywood, breaking up with him, and then writing a song about it and playing coy. And then she has the nerve to get super-defensive about discussing her "personal life"? Puh-leeease!

Sure, it's her "art" and she shouldn't have to divulge copious details about every relationship she decides to pen a song about, but why doesn't she just admit the truth? One of the HUGE ways she manages to stay relevant and sell music is by keeping people guessing. Mark my words: There may come a day when she's settled down, and her personal life is all out on the table. If she drops the guessing game altogether or does something nutty like expect us to enjoy guessing which of her children she's written a song about -- she's so done.

Are you sick of Taylor being so coy about her personal life?
