“I tend to write songs about relationships, that tends to be a thing that happens,” said Taylor Swift, in a sit-down interview with VH1 before her Storytellers show. “Usually beginnings and endings,” she added with a laugh. “Because that’s what I know most.”
Taylor’s Storyteller’s show took place at Harvey Mudd College, after students won an online voting contest to bring her to the school. She spoke of the connection college students feel to the emotional journeys she details in her music. “For me being here at a college, these are kids that are my age,” said Taylor, “and so were all going through the constant up and down, twists and turns of who are you going to love, and who are you going to end up and who do you want to avoid because they just broke your heart. I really hope this crowd relates to the stories I tell because were all kind of going through the same stuff.”
It was reported yesterday that Taylor and boyfriend Conor Kennedy split in the past month (cue sad groans). We guess this means we can expect another song about the end of a relationship on her next album?
