Taylor Swift is not a fan of the way she is depicted in the media. Because the singer is seemingly constantly dating different men and because her music gives people a channel into the inner workings of her brain, Swift is frequently depicted as being boy crazy -- or just crazy in general.
In the April issue of Vanity Fair, Swift is standing up for herself. "If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," she says (Seriously?!). "For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated -- a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way -- that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."
While we definitely don't have a problem with Swift opening up in her music (that's a big part of why we love her and why she's such a huge success -- everyone can relate to her heartache), it is easy to take her lyrics out of context and see just how creepy they do sound. Don't believe us? Check out these examples that show Swift's borderline stalker tendencies.
"I Almost Do"
Swift has trouble getting over her ex. She constantly thinks and dreams about him constantly thinking and dreaming about her.
"And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that every time I don't
I almost do, I almost do"
"You Belong With Me"
Swift's guy friend is seeing someone else, but she's got a crush on him, so she does her best to convince him to break up with his girlfriend to be with her instead.
"Standing by or waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me"
Swift falls in love -- crazy love.
"You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I'm falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier"
