Taylor Swift made a special appearance on The Ellen Show this week (May 14), where she sat down to chat about her new music, her cats, and play a game of ‘Burning Questions’ with Ellen Degeneres.
During the Burning Questions segment, Taylor answered questions like her current favorite TV shows (Killing Eve, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and Queer Eye) and what she does when she can’t sleep at night, and also revealed that the most rebellious thing she did as a teen was call out Joe Jonas on Ellen’s show for dumping her when she was 18.
“Probably when I put Joe Jonas on blast on your show,” Taylor answered when asked about her most rebellious teen moment.
“That was too much. That was too much. I was 18,” Taylor said. “We laugh about it now, but that was some mouthy…some teenage stuff there.”
Taylor was referencing her past appearance on Ellen in 2009, where she was asked about her ex-boyfriend, Joe Jonas while promoting her new album Fearless.
“There’s one that’s about that guy [Joe Jonas], but that guy’s not in my life anymore, unfortunately,” Taylor said. “That’s an ouch.”
“We haven’t talked since, actually. But you know what? Someday I’m going to find somebody that’s really, really great who’s right for me,” she said.
“When I find that person that is right for me and he’ll be wonderful. And when I look at that person, I’m not even going to be able to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18.”
During her appearance this week, Taylor talked about her last album, reputation and how it’s different from her upcoming seventh album.
“I had an album called reputation, and with the album I basically just wanted to make music and not explain it,” Taylor said on why she didn’t do too much press for her last album.
“I’m having fun being back here, it’s been really great to be back here. I think as a songwriter, I enjoy communicating about what I’ve made, I really do like that part of the process, but I also just feel like with my career I want to do what feels right at the time.”
“At that time I coined this phrase, ‘There will be no explanation, there will just be reputation,’ because I am dramatic,” she said. “That’s a very dramatic thing, but it rhymed, it was kind of catchy and so I stuck with it.”
Taylor also dished on her role in the upcoming movie Cats, the Easter eggs hidden in her latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and more.
