'I use songwriting as protective armour to justify things in my life': Taylor Swift
American singer Taylor Swift has had many hits over the years with the likes of Our Song, Lovestory and most recently Look What You Made Me Do in 2017. Known for her unique songwriting style, the 29-year-old singer recently revealed that she uses it to "process" her life and she uses the process as a "protective armour".
"For me, writing, I've always known it was the main pillar holding up my career. I use it as a way to justifying things that happen to me. I've always known it was the main pillar of kind of my sanity as well, like I always looked at writing as sort of like a protective armour," she said at the TIME 100 Gala here, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Which is weird, because you think of writing about your life, that's usually like a vulnerability, but I think that when you write about your life, it gives you the ability to process your life. I use it as a way of justifying things that have happened to me.
"Whether they are good or bad. I like to honour the good times and really process the bad times when I write."
