The 31-year-old songstress got candid about her slew of 'Taylor's Version' projects that began rolling out earlier this year, stating that she's excited to own her own music.

The re-emergence of her older songs have reignited interest in her love life, with songs like 'All Too Well' garnering a lot of attention and shedding light on her 2010 relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Taylor said: "It came out originally about a decade ago, and I was 22, and that release week was so stressful because nobody has heard any of the music."

She revealed that she's not reeling from heartbreak this time around: "It's really nice to be able to put this album out and not be sad. Not be taking breaks in between interviews to cry."

This resulted in Meyers asking the singer: "I wonder if there are people who might think that they were the one you were singing about, if it's easier or far, far worse for them 10 years later?"

To which Swift replied: "I haven't thought about their experience, to be honest."

The presenter dubbed the statement "the biggest burn" as Taylor looked on coyly.

"I think there's nothing they'd rather hear less," Seth added.

She gushed over the new adaptation of the album, stating that she could enjoy the project more from hindsight as she enters her thirties.
