Taylor Swift: Heartbreak is special
Taylor Swift says heartbreak is her favourite feeling to work with when writing lyrics.
The country singer is known for belting out songs about boyfriend woes such as smash hits We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and I Knew You Were Trouble.
While she's dated some gorgeous stars such as One Direction's Harry Styles and ladies' man John Mayer, being in love isn't as inspiring as breaking up.
"Heartbroken; I think when you're heartbroken you need music more than when you're not," she answered Coffee Break when asked about her favourite emotion to write with.
"There's something so beautiful about people who are heartbroken; they think about things much more. When you're in love and you're happy you don't need to think; it's just there. Love is one of those things that's so simple, you only need to think about it when it's bad. When you write a song about what you're thinking... there's such a gratification and it helps you move on."
Taylor has been raking in the prizes recently and took home an amazing eight Billboard awards this year.
While many stars would have partied to mark the occasion, the 23-year-old celebrated quietly.
"It was such an amazing night it was so fun; to win eight in one night was crazy," she smiled.
"We went for dinner at Nobu. I'm liking sushi more as I get older, but I just love Nobu, they have the best menu. I had interviews the next day so... no [I didn't party]."
Taylor has been busy with the Red Tour, taking UK singer pal Ed Sheeran along for support.
She revealed she's already thinking about her next album and explained what it feels like to hear fans belt out her tracks at concerts.
"It's insane and it's cool, because you play a show for 50,000 people and you can see that each song means a different thing to a different person," she said.
