As she explained (via October 25, 2013 ContactMusic report), ''when I'm writing songs, it's the only opportunity for my fans to hear what really happened. I'm in control of my life!''
The country songstress is headed back to Nashville, Tennessee to work on her fifth album. The songwriting process will involve an intense period of self-reflection.
As she commented, ''this is the time where I start to really go into the studio non-stop and spend all my time writing songs. I scour my brain for every possible metaphor and analogy I can use to describe my life and emotions.''
Although Swift and Styles broke up in January, their post-breakup fallout still continues to be a subject of fascination. During the August 25 MTV Video Music Awards, the "22" singer came under fire for uttering what appeared to be an expletive about her ex.
However, Swift's pal, Ed Sheeran, defended her, saying that the comment had been taken out of context. Selena Gomez had thought that Miley Cyrus would win the award for Best Pop Video, and as a way of encouraging her pal, Swift responded, "shut the f--k up."
What do you think really happened between Swift and Styles? Are you looking forward to hearing about her side of the breakup?
