Taylor Swift repeats concern that people will picture her naked

In a tween pop music world dominated by Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift is a revelation. She almost seems too good to be true. In every interview, the girl seems very sweet and poised, she writes her own music and she’s never flashed her privates. Give this girl a medal!

Taylor is April’s Allure cover girl, and People magazine has some of the details of the interview. Taylor doesn’t want to talk about her much-discussed virginity, saying “when you talk about virginity and sex publicly, people just automatically picture you naked. And as much as I can prevent people picturing me naked, I’m going to.” She also says that if you can get a good song out of the worst relationship, the whole ordeal was worth it. But what if we don’t write songs, Taylor? People has more:

Taylor Swift has no problems talking about dating – and boys – but don’t ask her about sex.

“It’s fine to talk about love publicly,” the 19-year-old singer tells Allure for its April issue, “but I think when you talk about virginity and sex publicly, people just automatically picture you naked. And as much as I can prevent people picturing me naked, I’m going to.”

Still, Swift thinks a lot about dating, especially its impact on her songwriting. Even a bad relationship can be a point of inspiration.

“Let’s say I date a guy who really does nothing but damage me,” she says. “And you’ve spent time, you’ve spent effort, and you’ve put everything into trying to make that work. And it didn’t. So you write a song about it. It was worth everything if you write a song about it.”

Many of Swift’s songs have romantic overtones, and she lists fairy tales as a big inspiration.

“I have always been fascinated with fairy tales, and the idea that Prince Charming is just one castle away,” she says. “And you’re gonna run across a field and meet each other in the middle, and have an amazing, perfect movie kiss. And it’s gonna be happily ever after.”

Despite her love of a happy ending, the teen star says the flip side can be more appealing.

“For some reason, I could never, ever stop writing songs about heartbreak,” she says. “Just because as human beings, what we can’t have is what we replay in our head over and over again before we go to sleep.”

From People

I’ve sort of gotten into Taylor Swift lately. On one of my local radio stations, there’s a deejay who is obsessed with Taylor’s music, so I basically know all the words to several Taylor Swift songs just from listening in the car. She’s got a great, twangy voice, and I hope her pop-country crossover is complete.

Note by Celebitchy: Taylor gave a similar comment about her virginity to Rolling Stone, saying in an interview published in the March issue, “I feel like whatever you say about whether you do or don’t, it makes people picture you naked.” If that’s about as controversial as she gets, you can understand why she’s repeating herself.

Taylor Swift is shown performing at The ‘Sound Relief’ music festival in Sydney on 3/14/09 to raise money for victims of the recent Australian bushfires. She is also shown at the premiere of ’17 Again’ on 3/11/09. Credit: WENN.com

    The extent of my knowledge on Taylor Swift, is the elementary talent show last year where no less than 15 girls ‘sang’ the same song. Teardrops on my guitar.

    Here’s a thought. stop saying the word naked. nothing makes you think of naked like “naked”

  2. Lem says:

    Grrrr Now that stupid song is stuck in my head!!

  3. ash says:

    I have news for ya honey, I’m sure people already picture you naked.

  4. spooge says:

    Great.. now all I can think of is her naked.
    No girls around… guess I’ll have to make do with her picture and a bottle of lotion.

  5. Annie says:

    I like Taylor Swift.

    She’s sweet, genuine and talented.

    She is also oversharing a bit here. But let’s face it, all the boys that think she’s beautiful…have already pictured her naked. So that ship’s sailed Taylor.

  6. Jenna says:

    I still say that there could be a possible X-rated photo that could possibly get leaked. She’s only as ‘wholesome’ as she can be in front of cameras and the public eye. I bet that Jonas brother did all the right talking and got a nip shot. It’s kinda like she is bracing the public for a scandal that could be coming out. Could be.

  7. Hieronymus Grex says:

    That must have been why she decided to suddenly plunge herself into that onstage waterfall during her performance at the CMA Awards while wearing that clingy short black dress, she’s worried about appearing too sexy- puh-lease !!

    Go back to turning country music into bubble gum pop music, doll. You’ve got talent, but shut your mouth.

  8. ChristinaX says:

    She’s starting to get on my nerves. It could be just me, but it seems like she’s fishing now.

    She’s pretty, blonde, and thin…she doesn’t think guys don’t picture her nude already?

    You know what, whatever, because what’s sad is that she gets all the attention she begs for.

  9. IrishForTheDay says:

    you might be on to something Jenna. There was a blind item floating around that said something along the lines of a female musician is not as pure as people believe she is; she sent a topless picture of herself to her boyfriend’s younger brother. Boyfriend found out, and broke up with her over it. I don’t know if it was revealed or not, but the general school of thought is that it was Taylor, Joe and Nick in this one. Would also explain why he broke up with her in 27 seconds. that’s about as long as it takes to say “we’re through. Stay the **** away from my brother”

  10. TinaWithPom says:

    The girl looks all pinched up in the face. My nine-year-old niece says Taylor Swift looks like a “beautiful elf princess.” I have to agree with the sweet dumpling. Every time I see Miss Swift’s photo, I want to dress the singer up in a green elf costume, complete with striped stockings and curly felt shoes.

  11. becca says:

    OMG, she does look like an elf!!!

    And Taylor dear…you can’t stop a guy (or even a girl, if they’re so inclined) from picturing you naked. You can help not make matters worse by staying away from the GQ and Maxim photoshoots etc.

  12. blunderbuss says:

    I picture her naked on a regular basis. Makes for a lively workday!

  13. Jenna says:

    IrishForTheDay, I remember reading that blind item as well. This is the second time she has said it which kind of only confirms my idea that there is something out there that she doesn’t want released.

  14. Jamine says:

    Oh PLEASE! B-tch wants everybody to picture her naked.

    I just don’t like this girl. Not sure why, but her face really bugs me.

  15. lila says:

    she seems nice grounded and normal. at least she can write and play an instrument that alone is talent not to mention she has a unique voice, i like it. as long as i dont have to listen to jessica simpson that would be torture and the faces she makes i’m good.
