Taylor Swift has earned a reputation as being overly open about her relationship woes over the years. The super star has been known to air out her personal life by way of her massive hit songs and must-have albums. So, Taylor’s heartbreak has clearly been followed up by some fantastic success.
Recently, however, Swift opened up to Elle Magazine about the label she’s so well known for. The “Heartbreak Queen” has been in a happy relationship with musical artist Calvin Harris and is eager to “shake off” the title that links Swift with perpetual romantic woes and hopelessness. Bang relays that Taylor “insists she is a very happy person despite sharing her relationship woes with past boyfriends, including Harry Styles and John Mayer, in many of her songs.” The publication then noted Taylor’s words to Elle Magazine.
”I don’t want to be known as the Heartbreak Queen. I want to be known for having a beautiful life. And that doesn’t mean that everything has to be good all the time. There’s beauty in the ups and downs. I want to be known as being a really good friend. I want to be known for being really loyal. I don’t ever want to be the person who looks at other people in their industry as competition and therefore ends up either alone or surrounded by an entourage of people who tell them they’re gorgeous and perfect and the best and queen and all of that. I don’t really have much of a queen complex.”
Swift then went on to admit that she is happy with her life right now and that although she has, in the past, held on to the whole happily-ever-after mentality, she no longer truly believes in this but does hope for lasting love in her life.
The 25-year-old explained her reasoning for ditching the fairy tale expectations.
”Now I have more of a grasp on the fact that when you’re in a state of infatuation and you think everything that person does is perfect, it then – if you’re lucky – morphs into a real relationship when you see that person is not in fact perfect, but you will want to see them every day.”
Taylor’s realistic view as to what a loving relationship involves must have something to do with her beau of a few months, Calvin Harris. The two have been spotted all over in various locales being affectionate and adorable as expected. People Magazine has even begun a poll to get fans’ votes for what their official couple name should be. It must be serious!
