Swift recently sat down with Rolling Stone and got down to the basics of her inspiration after a tour stop in New Jersey. "I am getting to a point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about," she told Rolling Stone. Basically, the boyfriends are musical material and dating Swift means potential exploitation if things go badly (or if they're going swimmingly, too). "If someone's singing a song about that feeling, then you feel bonded to that person," she explained. "I guess that's the only way I can find an explanation why 55,000 people would want to come see me sing."
Girl, we can't agree with you more. Haters are going to hate (and sometimes make rude T-shirts), but hey, Swift is the one laughing all the way to the bank. (Huffington Post)
