The 'Love Story' singer also says writing songs about her love life is something she has always done.

Taylor Swift says she gets bored of people claiming she always "comes on too strong" with the men she dates, and has also explained why she chooses to write music about her break-ups.

The 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer says people "love" to write about how needy they think she is with men, and claims writing about love is just something that comes naturally to her.

"I'm sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumour it would say I'm chasing somebody who doesn't like me as much as I like him - people love that angle on me," Taylor reveals in the new issue of Elle magazine. "They're like, 'Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.'

"I never chase boys, they don't like it!" the 'Begin Again' singer continued, before going on to explain why she writes songs about her ex-boyfriends. "To me it's 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," Taylor 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 added.
