OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift: “It’s Fair Game”

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

She can dish it out, and she can take it. It’s just one more reason to love Taylor Swift . She recently told InStyle U.K. magazine that, yes, she does write songs about her ex-boyfriends but that she would be very OK if they did the same about her. (Assuming they are songwriters. Because it would be pretty weird if Taylor Lautner suddenly wrote a song, right?) In the magazine’s April issue, Swift says that is just how it works. “I’m not gonna complain about it,” she said. “I’m not gonna sit there and say, ’I’m the only one who can write songs about this relationship.’ It’s fair game.”

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