Taylor Swift Answers Fan Questions for 'YouTube Presents'
Taylor Swift recently sat down for a lengthy interview with 'YouTube Presents,' a Q&A session held by the video-sharing website. While over 30,000 questions were submitted, Tay only had time to answer a select few, but the awesome clip still offers Swifties over 40 minutes of the 21-year-old star. In the one-on-one, the country star opened up about everything from the inspirations behind her individual songs to her next album.
"For me, I never really switch the writing switch off," she revealed about her songwriting process. "It's always on because I have always felt like to make an album that I am proud enough of to give my fans and say, 'Here, allow this into your life,' it has to be two to two and a half years of writing, and that way you know you have your best stuff. I drive myself insane writing records and albums, because I'll write 40 to 50 songs and then 13 or 14 make it."
As for her follow-up to 'Speak Now,' Taylor says it's already in the works. "I've been writing ever since I stopped writing the last album, and there's been a lot that's happened," she said with a smile. "I never really talk about my personal life, but I write about it, so that's basically what the album is about -- as always."
