Taylor Swift is firing back at critics who say she only writes songs about her exes.
"I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there."
She goes on to say that "my first album came out when I was sixteen, so I would write about my life as I saw it, as I felt it and then what happens is that as you get more successful, you have more and more people paying attention to what you're doing, and you've been doing it the same way your entire career as a songwriter, but all of a sudden your perspective has changed."
"The most important thing to me is maintaining artist integrity which means as a songwriter I still continue to write about my life. I could very well water it down... (but) people are going to see the depth from which you approached the song, the fact that you put real emotions into it, and that's valuable, and that's good and that's real."
She also dishes details on her upcoming 1989, revealing that Ed Sheeran's favorite track is Bad Blood and Lorde's is Welcome to New York.
