Taylor Swift's Teenage Loneliness Led To Songwriting

28 October 2010

She's the most popular girl in Hollywood at the moment, but Taylor Swift has revealed that her teenage loneliness led to her becoming a songwriter.

"I turned to songwriting because I didn't really have anybody else to talk to," Taylor told MTV's The Seven. "I was going through a very lonely phase at school, which a lot of kids do. It's just when you're going through it you feel like you're the only one going through it."

As Taylor grew up and started experiencing new things, her songs changed and started to have different focuses

"I changed a lot over the course of my life, and having written songs since I was 12, your perspective changes," she said. "But I think part of growing up is realizing that you'll never change, but you'll never stay the same either."

On the subject of college, Taylor revealed that although she probably won't ever enrol, you might see her hanging around a couple of US college campuses!

Taylor said, "I go and I visit my brother at college and I visit my best friend Abigail at college and go and I attend her journalism class. I have no regrets about the path that I took, but I still try to experience as much as I possibly can in life."
