The 24-year-old stopped by E! News to chat with Jason Kennedy and Jesse Giddings about her upcoming pop album 1989 (available Oct. 27) and clarified the statements she made in a recent interview about her dating life.
"It's not that [I've sworn off dating] as much as I'm just very protective of my happiness," Swift explains. "I found a place in my life that feels really great and I'm not willing to compromise that for just anyone, and so, you can paraphrase that all you want into something very extreme, but they make what I say extreme no matter what I say."
She continues, "So I'm really happy about the fact that being single doesn't feel like being alone. I have love in my life, I just don't have a relationship, and that feels really natural right now."
Those are some Taylor truths right there, people. Take note.
