I don't yell at my boyfriends: Swift

Los Angeles, Feb 12 (IANS) Singer Taylor Swift, who has had a string of boyfriends, insists she never yells at any of them.

"I don't think I have ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I am not a yeller. I am not a fit thrower," contactmusic.com quoted Swift as saying.

While Swift's songs are inspired by her former boyfriends - Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles and John Mayer, she insists she is not trying to get back at them through her lyrics.

"To me it is just writing songs the way I always have. It's me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn't understand, writing a song, and understanding it better," the 23-year-old said.

If people want to dissect the lyrics, that's their right, but it's all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It's just something I do to feel better," she said.

Swift said her middle school was to blame for making her insecure.

"I didn't fit in... I would stand on the outside of the circle (in school) but I was never really in. That's when I started to understand there's this thing called rejection," she said.
