Taylor Swift Dishes On Her Dating Dos & Don’ts: “Never Give Anyone An Excuse To Say You’re Crazy!”

Submitted by on February 5, 2014 – 11:30 amNo Comment

Unlike many of her contemporaries like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift has no interest posing in the nude. The 24-year-old country singer poses on the cover of the March 2014 cover of Glamour, fully clothed, and talks about shirking sex symbol status in order to be a role model.

“I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off,” she explains. “It’s not an urge I have. For me, ‘risky’ is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”

But that willingness to be honest and write hits about past relationships with A-listers like John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, and Harry Styles has landed the blonde criticism. She’s all too happy to ignore it, though.

“I know when not to read an article,” Taylor admits. “Is it going to help my day? Is it important for my life? If the answer is no, then I just don’t click…I’m careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don’t have the option of having thick skin. As a writer, you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet criticizing every single thing about you. If you’re me.”

She may avoid online press, but Taylor is still looking for love and gives fellow hopeless romantics a little relationship advice. “I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt,” she says. “Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table. Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you’re crazy.”
