Taylor Swift isn't a yeller and she isn't a boy-chaser, she says — but she admits she's a little bit insecure.
So the Grammy-opener says in Elle magazine, which features her on the cover of its March issue. The insecurity, she tells the mag, was born out of those days in middle school, just like happens to regular girls. Certainly not secure enough to go running after guys?
"I'm sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him — people love that angle on me. They’re like, 'Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys. I never chase boys. They don't like it!

And she's never — ever — yelled at any of her many ex-boyfriends. "I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit thrower. If something is done, it’s done."
Well, everything's done except the songwriting, we suppose.
"It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better," she says. "If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s ... just something I do to feel better."
For someone who doesn't chase boys, however, she certainly does catch a lot of them.
Strike that: Make it catch-and-release.
