(AUDIO) Taylor Swift Inspired By More Than Just Love

February 24, 2013

It’s well known that most of Taylor Swift’s songs are inspired by love in all its various phases, but Taylor says there are other things that inspire her creativity as well, like books and inspirational YouTube videos. “You know, you hear storytelling like in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and it just…it makes your mind wander. It makes you feel like it makes your world more vast. And you think about more things and greater concepts after you read something like that.” Taylor also finds inspiration from a collection of YouTube videos known as TEDTalks. According to Wikipedia, TEDTalks are a global set of conferences formed to disseminate "ideas worth spreading." Taylor says, “I watch them on YouTube and they’re some of the most inspiring people who give talks on inspiration and shame and vulnerability and all these grand concepts. Sometimes I just go and I watch those speeches because it inspires me that there are people that are that emotionally intelligent.”
