While interviewing for the March issue of Glamour magazine, the 23-year-old country star explained that unlike many of other women in the business (Miley Cyrus recently posed completely nude for W magazine) she doesn't reveal much skin because she doesn't feel the need to do so.
"I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have," Swift explains in the cover story.
"For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is," she adds. "That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off," she says.
The Grammy winner is famous for shaming her exes in her catchy breakup anthems, and while she never confirms who her songs are really about, the tracks "All Too Well," "I Knew you Were Trouble," "Back to December" and "Dear John" are widely believed to be about Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer, respectively.
On the subject of relationships, Swift said that for her, "silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums."
"Never give anyone an excuse to say that you're crazy," she told the mag.
As for her serial-dater fame, Swift says she only sees relationships as games if the guy establishes it as such. And if that is the case, she knows exactly how to handle it.
"I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt," she says. "Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it's a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table."
