I have to practice to be good at guitar. I have to write 100 songs before you write the first good one.
I've always been really, really aware of my insecurities - really, really aware. I never developed that thick skin that keeps you from letting things get to you.
For me, writing a song, I sit down and the process doesn't really involve me thinking about the demo-graphic of people I'm trying to hit or who I want to be able to relate to the song or what genre of music it falls under.
All of my walls are covered with framed pictures of my friends.
Winter = baking season. It's on.
You have to not only live your life in spite of people who don't understand you, you have to have more fun than they do.
If I could go back I wouldn't change anything. If I was popular I would have never left my bubble. I wouldn't have ever tired to do anything different. I would have never become happy.
My dad is a Chatty Cathy, the social butterfly; friendly; knows everybody in the whole world by six degrees; tells me that every performance is the greatest he's ever seen, every new outfit is the coolest. Constant cheerleader.
I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and st
I had the most magical childhood, running free and going anywhere I wanted to in my head. Taylor S
No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.
Happy,Free,Confused,Lonley at the same time
Being excited about stuff on a daily basis, I'm so excited by it.
I often get ideas for songs on the tour bus at odd times. Like at 6am when no one is around, I'd just write.
You can draw inspiration from anything. If you're a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you're casually talking to says something that makes you so mad - you can create an entire scenario
It feels kinda weird being back in a high school cause I haven't been in a high school for about a year. So um, it's kinda interesting coming back, and y'know seeing the lockers, with all the signs, the handmade signs, so being in high school again is a little bit strange but in a good way.
I get so excited when a song I wrote that's very personal to me goes No. 1 and I look down and see people singing the words back to me.
I'd like to do a completely off-the-wall collaboration. I would like one of my songs to be the hook to a rap song. That would be so much fun!
I have rules for a lot of areas of my life. Love is not going to be one of them. Taylor Sw
We wrote a song, while sitting on a trampoline & we loved it so much that we ended up recording it as a duet
I cap myself when I shop; I don't like to spend extravagant amounts on clothes. But, I do get lent clothes for events, it's scary to wear something so expensive, but I feel really pampered.
My ultimate goal is to end up being happy. Most of the time.
I have been singing randomly, obsessively, obnoxiously for as long as I can remember. Taylor S
Since I was old enough to understand what a songwriter/producer is, I've had a curiosity about how Max Martin creates what he creates. I wanted to see that happen. I wanted to be there. I wanted to learn from him.
I keep going back to love when I write songs because I can't figure it out.
When I'm writing a record, I kind of don't listen to much music. Just because I want to be inspired solely on the emotion; just based on how it feels.
I like organizing things. I like organizing my closets, so that I know where everything is. And and I used to color code it.
Love always ends differently and it always begins differently - especially with me.
There are no rules when it comes to love.
Music can take you back in time to that place when you first fell in love and really haunt you.
