Taylor Swift may boast a seemingly endless string of short-lived relationships with fellow celebrities, but in an upcoming issue of ELLE mag, the 23-year-old singer and cover girl waved off her boy-hungry reputation.

"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," Swift said. "They're like 'Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.' I never chase boys. They don't like it!"

Swift, who seemed to mock ex Harry Styles' British accent during her performance of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" at Sunday night's Grammy's, insisted that she's never gotten too angry at an ex-boyfriend.

"I don't think I've ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend. Ever. I'm not a yeller. I'm not a fit thrower. If something is done, it's done," she said.

Swift is famous for making her exes - from Jake Gyllenhaal to John Mayer -- the subjects of her songs, but the singer said that's just how she copes with hard breakups.

“To me it’s just writing songs the way I always have. It’s me sitting on my bed feeling pain I didn’t understand, writing a song, and understanding it better. If people want to dissect the lyrics, that’s their right, but it’s all coming from the exact same place as where I started. It’s just something I do to feel better.”

The March issue of Elle mag hits newsstands Feb. 19.
