My parents actually almost named me Shelby. But then they realised that my name would have been Shelby Swift and that kids might make fun of me. Shelby Swift‒ like ‘She’ll-be Swift’. And then like, what if I wasn’t a fast runner? They would’ve been like “well she’s not.
I am constantly misunderstood; a lot of people just don’t get me. It’s like how I’m perceived to be constantly going out with people. I’m just not. It’s like she’s a hopeless romantic so she’s a serial monogamist, always dating. They look at me and think: ‘Oh she has to be in love or she’s not happy.’ It is possible for a woman to be romantic but also to be single and to be happy. - Taylor Swift
