Taylor Swift: Swift: I Don’t Have Thick Skin

October 2, 2012 by  

Taylor Swift: Swift: I Don’t Have Thick Skin, Taylor Swift doesn’t mind singing about romance and its heartache. But ask her to ‘fess up about her beaus, current and former, and you get bupkis. ABC’s Cynthia McFadden did double duty as she interviewed Swift for Glamour mag and Nightline.

McFadden brought up Swift’s Dear John song, saying the singer never identified who it was about, but John Mayer recently told Rolling Stone that it was him.

“How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about,” said Swift.

“He said he felt ”

Swift interrupted McFadden, “No! I don’t want to know, I don’t want to know.”

(Mayer told Rolling Stone that he was “humiliated” by the song, and that Swift’s releasing it was “a really lousy thing for her to do.”)

Adds Swift, “I know it wasn’t good, so I don’t want to know. I put a high priority on staying happy, and I know what I can’t handle.”

So, McFadden asked, it would hurt too much for her to hear?

“It’s not that I’m this egomaniac and I don’t want to hear anything negative, because I do keep myself in check,” explains Swift. “But I’ve never developed that thick a skin. So I just kind of live a life, and I let all the gossip live somewhere else. If you go too far down the rabbit hole of what people think about you, it can change everything about who you are.”

Undaunted, McFadden brought up her new relationship with Conor Kennedy.

“I don’t talk about my personal life in great detail. I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you’re going through.”
