I think that the one thing I want my fans to get from this album is I want them to blast it in their cars, and dance in their bedrooms alone to it, and if they really need to have that really pathetic cry in the bathtub that they would choose one of my songs to do it. These are real moments in life where we need music and I just hope that they choose my song to be the soundtrack.

I think that allowing yourself to feel raw, real emotions in public is something I am never going to be afraid to do. Hopefully that’s the case, if I can remain a real human. I’m fine with being honest with my fans about the fact that it’s okay that everything isn’t okay all the time. I love my life, I love my career, I love my friends - but things are not okay all the time. So I don’t sing about things being okay all the time.” - Taylor Swift

“The difference between a good song and a great song is a good song is one that you know, you’ll put on in your car or you’ll dance to it. But I think a great song you’ll cry to it, or you get chills. I think a great song says how you feel better than you could.”

“Throughout all of the changes that have happened in my life, one of the priorities I’ve had is to never change the way I write songs and the reasons I write songs. I write songs to help me understand life a little more. I write songs to get past things that cause me pain. And I write songs because sometimes life makes more sense to me when it’s being sung in a chorus and when I can write it in a verse.”

You know, life throws these things at us, life makes us wonder if we should be less naive, less childlike, less enthusiastic, less excitable. These things are looked down on when we grow up. And I guess what I’m trying to tell you is that the way you’re dancing tonight; yes, it’s childlike and enthusiastic and excitable and it’s beautiful. That’s how I want you to live your life.

“As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons and sometimes my greatest career triumphs…If my life had been turbulence free, no bumps in the road at all, maybe my music would be more beige, maybe the stadiums wouldn’t be so full and the mantle would be a little more empty.”

“One thing I’ve learned is your life is your life, it’s not what people write about your life and it’s not what everyone’s perception of what your life is. I never want to turn into that person who says to whoever I may be seeing or thinking about going on a date with: “Let’s not go to dinner in public tonight because that might get written about.” I don’t want to let the fact that people are watching me change the course of my actions in relationships.”

“My dating life is through ‘Chicago Fire.’ I live vicariously through my character. I don’t think I have a type. I think it’s more of an energy. I think of compatibility as the intangibles of something, and someone that you meet that you connect with, and you can laugh with, and maybe share a same sense of humor, and then I think things go from there.”
