OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift on Chick Flicks and Long-Distance Love

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

You know those chick flicks you could watch over and over, but your boyfriend or husband wouldn’t be caught dead watching with you? Those are rom-coms (romantic comedies) and Taylor Swift happens to love them. She even gave InStyle her list of her five favorites. Love Actually and Easy A made the list. As did He’s Just Not That Into You, which she said she liked because it helped a lot of girls. “The concept of a guy not being into you is useful to me and my friends — we can apply it to our lives,” she admitted. And she recently saw Life as We Know It and thought Katherine Heigl (Mrs. Josh Kelley) and Josh Duhamel had really good chemistry. Swift also likes Going the Distance, because she says, “I’m performing or on tour so much of the time, every relationship is likely to be long distance for me.”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
