“I was 17 when I wrote that,” she reminds me. “That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realise no one takes someone from you if they don’t want to leave.”

"Taylor Swift songs are meant to be sung aloud in the shower, danced around to in the middle of the street and cried to when you’re home alone with nothing but chocolate ice cream. But above all else, they’re supposed to speak to you.

TOP 5 TAYLOR SWIFT SONGS || (4)  » Last Kiss
“The song ‘Last Kiss’ is sort of like a letter to somebody. You say all of these desperate, hopeless feelings that you have after a break-up. Going through a break-up you feel all of these different things. You feel anger, and you feel confusion, and frustration. Then there is the absolute sadness. The sadness of losing this person, losing all the memories, and the hopes you had for the future. There are times when you have this moment of truth where you just admit to yourself that you miss all these things. When I was in one of those moments I wrote this song.- Taylor Swift”

I don’t like it when they start to make cheap shots at my songwriting. Because there’s no joke to be made there.

“The way she sees it, there’s a gender element to such scrutiny. “I really resent the idea that if a woman writes about her feelings, she has too many feelings,” she says. “And I really resent the ‘Be careful, buddy, she’s going to write a song about you’ angle, because it trivialises what I do. It makes it seem like creating art is something you do as a cheap weapon rather than an artistic process. They can say whatever they want about my personal life because I know what my personal life is, and it involves a lot of TV and cats and girlfriends. But I don’t like it when they start to make cheap shots at my songwriting. Because there’s no joke to be made there.”

"Looking back on the things that I’ve written songs about and looking back at who you used to be. There was a time in my life where my biggest fear was not fitting in at school. There was a time when my biggest dream was to get asked to the prom by an older guy. It’s hard in that time of your life when everyone is telling you that you’re too young to do everything, but you’re old enough to find love and you’re old enough to get your heart broken. It was the year that I met my best friend Abigail.. I was fifteen."
