Taylor Swift: "Love Is Never Simple"
Taylor Swift seems to have it all together. She's gorgeous, talented, and has been seen with some of the cutest boys in Hollywood. We've experienced all of her love wins and losses through listening to her songs. In the past two crazy years, Taylor believes she's learned a lot about love:
"I used to think there were all these rules for making people like you. Like, the best way to get a guy to like you would be to actively ignore him. I was filled with advice! I'd tell my friends things like, 'Don't accept that apology! That isn't sincere! Or He hung out with his ex-girlfriend? Get rid of him.' But love is never that simple. Now I'm finally getting the idea it's the one thing I don't need to have a strategy for."
Taylor's songs remind us of her former relationships. What else reminds her of past loves? Certain smells. "Different smells bring different relationships to mind for me…I'd put on Abercrombie 8 to remember when I was in ninth grade and had my first boyfriend, because he gave me that"
Certain scents can also bring painful memories. "Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is still a difficult one for me to smell…Maybe [a new] guy will replace my bad memories of the cologne with good ones. In a perfect world."
