Swift, who is Vanity Fair's cover girl for the new issue, has earned a reputation for writing songs about her break-ups and famous ex-boyfriends. Over the years, she has been linked romantically with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, singer-songwriter John Mayer, Conor Kennedy, the late President John F. Kennedy's nephew, and most recently with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles -- the couple split after spending New Years together.
Swift told the magazine in the cover story that it was "frankly a little sexist" for the media to portray her as a "clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend" for writing about "her feelings in a confessional way." She said that honest portrayal of her emotions in song "potentially should be celebrated."
