Swift appears on the cover of the May 2009 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about her song about Joe Jonas, her friends, and her favorite thing to write songs about.
Right now, my favorite thing to write about is love. And breakups. And boys. And feelings. Honesty is a big part of my writing, because when I was younger and fell in love with songs I’d hear, I would always wonder who that song was about. It would have totally broken my heart to know it wasn’t about anyone and was just written so it could be on the radio.
