New York Magazine calls Taylor Swift the biggest pop star in the world

Entertainment Tonight

Taylor Swift has been named the "biggest pop star in the world" by New York Magazine and reveals to the publication her relationship requirements when it comes to becoming one of her infamous muses she writes about in her songs.

The 23-year-old singer says she only writes about "crazy love" and nothing less. "If I go on two dates with a guy and we don't click, I'm not writing a song about that," she shares. "It didn't matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There's a lot that goes on in daily life that isn't really worth turning into a verse and a chorus."

She added, "I think that allowing yourself to feel raw, real emotions in public is something I am never going to be afraid to do. Hopefully that's the case, if I can remain a real human. I'm fine with being honest with my fans about the fact that it's okay that everything isn't okay all the time. I love my life, I love my career, I love my friends -- but things are not okay all the time. So I don't sing about things being okay all the time."

Swift also used the interview to send a message to her haters, "I mean, [critics] can say that all they want. Those are real feelings that every single person goes through."

The "22" singer quips, "There's a spin on every single celebrity out there. I know that one of my spins is: 'Oh, Taylor's heartbroken. Oh, Taylor fell in love and the guy broke her heart. She's sad all the time and lonely.'"

Taylor Swift is not and will never be the biggest popstar in the world.  She is just overrated because she is a white girl. Her music sucks and all sound the same. As far as I am concerned her music is garbage. There are many artists in the music industry who are 100% better than Taylor Swift and for some reason they are passed over for garbage music like Taylor Swift. Everytime I hear Taylor Swift music I turn the radio off. I don't hate her but I hate her music and I don't think she deserves the type of recognition and awards that she has been bombarded with. To all who thinks she is so great, listen to Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lionel Ritchie, Marvin Gaye, Michael Bolton, and then lets talk about music. I think Taylor Swift sound like a squeaky crying doll compared to Rihanna, Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown etc. I still try t wonder who are the people buying her music. So stop all the BS and pushing Taylor Swift to the masses because her music sucks to the highest degree.

She is popular because she is fantastic, as many pop stars are, but Taylor Swift is not the skank so many of the others are or try to be to get attention.

She was named biggest pop star~ not country star.  Yet, somehow she still hasn't out done Madonna and Lady Gaga in concert sales according to Forbes Magazine. I think she pays people to say good things about her. Heck, I think all celebrities pay to have something said about them in the media.

Kanye made her. If he hadn't did what he did she would be a nobody. White folks got mad because the "threatening" black guy embarrassed her so they rallied around her and made her a star. She owes him a thanks.

Swift has been in Nashville since she was 14. She was the youngest songwriter to sign Sony music. I guess those guys didn't know how foolish they were. They must have lost millions on her. I wonder how she or Sony could continue to buy awards for someone with so little talent (only 5 instruments and sings only slightly better than Roseanne Barr). Someone else must be giving money to the charities they claim she supports (probably because the feel sorry for her and don't want her to be embarrassed). On the other hand, Victoria's Secret model, Jessica Hart, has accomplished so much more. Whatever that is...
