There are now two things you ought to know are off-limits on Planet Taylor Swifther cat's appearance and using her lyrics to deduce whom she's dated.

As a guest on Australian radio show Jules, Merrick & Sophie, the singer-songwriter defended her practice of writing about her life as "artistic integrity," meaning she's kept a painfully honest musical diary since 16 and isn't about to change now. Fine. But what's really interesting is how she'd respond to people who say "she only writes songs about her ex-boyfriends."

"Frankly, that's a very sexist angle to take," Swift said. "No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They're all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life, and no one raises a red flag there."

The hosts simply nod in agreement because what else can they they do?
