Taylor Swift Swats Down ‘Sexist’ Critics

Swift’s fifth album, “1989,” goes on sale next week

If you think Taylor Swift writes too many songs about her past and present romantic relationships, she thinks you’re sexist.

The Grammy winner fired back at her critics while promoting her upcoming album, “1989,” on Australian radio show, “Jules, Merrick & Sophie.”

“You’re going to have people who think, ‘Oh, she just writes songs about ex-boyfriends.’ And I think, frankly, that’s a very sexist angle to take,” Swift said during the interview (above). “No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there.”

Swift, who has dated a number of famous men, says she has a “very strict personal policy” to never drop names in her music.

The singer behind hits “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “Shake It Off” explained she has always written autobiographical music, and does not intend to change that, no matter how famous she is.
