The 'Love Story' singer says she prefers to keep the focus on her songwriting and singing ability.

Taylor Swift says she doesn't like showing off too much flesh on stage or in her music videos as she wants people to focus on her music.

The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer says people "only focus on one thing" when you show too much off during a performance, and would rather showcase her songwriting and singing talents over her body.

"I don't really take my clothes off because I don't think I can pull it off," Taylor told The Sun. "Also, most people are only going to focus on one or two things about you.

"I want that to be that I write my own songs, not that I have great abs," she explained. 

The 22 year-old singer launched her brand new album 'Red' this week with a string of promotional appearances across New York.
