Taylor Swift has hinted that one of her ex-boyfriends spoke to her about the song she wrote of him.

The Tennessee native recently spoke to New York Magazine and recounted the course of her entire career, starting from her humble beginnings in Nashville up to the popularity she now has.

She discussed the success of her latest album, 'Red,' which like her first three albums, featured songs that pertained to her failed relationships in the past.

The 23-year-old singer revealed that a few of her past boyfriends spoke to her and reacted to the songs allegedly dedicated to them.

"I heard from the guy that most of Red is about," Swift said. "He was like, 'I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.' That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy e-mails I got from this one dude. It's a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it-but one of those people happened to be a songwriter," Swift added.

"So what are you going to do? Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?" she noted.

But while she may be famous for turning high-profile heartbreaks to chart-topping songs, she clarified that not all experiences deserve even a single tune.

"If I go on two dates with a guy and we don't click, I'm not writing a song about that. 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."

While some people criticized her for almost always wearing her heart on her sleeves, she said she does not plan to constrain herself from pouring her emotions out in the songs she writes.

"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."

"The most terrible letdown as a listener for me is when I'm listening to a song and I see what they were trying to do," Taylor adds. "I never want to put things in songs just because that might make them popular, like, on the more rhythmic stations or in dance clubs. I really don't want a compilation of sounds. I just need them to be songs."
