Taylor Swift copes with her emotions by writing songs
The 20-year-old `Love Story` songstress - who was famously dumped by Joe Jonas on the phone - revealed she can only get closure on something once she has processed what she`s feeling and transferred it into a song.
She told America`s Marie Claire magazine: "Everyone in my life knows whenever something happens the only way it`s going to be over and finished and put to bed is if it`s written about.
"Right now, the number one priority in my life is figuring out how to process what I`m feeling and translate it into musical form.
"It`s like, `Oh, my God, I`m confused right now. What`s the rhyme I could use here?"
The singer and songwriter explained planning ahead means life is less stressful.
She stated: "I think about my next move 10 steps ahead. I`m always planning three awards shows ahead. For me, planning is a productive way of stressing out about your life."
When it comes to collaborations, the blonde country singer revealed she would love to work with The White Stripes` guitarist Jack White.
She said: "I love his style. I love his writing. I think he`s an awesome player too."
