Listen to Taylor Swift on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - From "I Knew You Were Trouble" to "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" it's clear Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about penning hit singles about her failed romances. The superstar is gracing the cover of Glamour's March issue and explaining why she feels like she's taking a bigger risk writing songs about her past relationships than taking her clothes off. 

"For me, 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music," Swift admitted. "'Risky' is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off."

While some other stars Taylor's age are getting a lot of attention for stripping down (ahem, Miley! Rihanna!),this 24-year-old is doing quite the opposite and has maintained her relatively conservative image throughout her career.

From being the butt of dating jokes to her past relationships playing out in the public eye, this songstress has had her fair share of ups and downs. But, despite knowing what a broken heart feels like, she still believes in love and is telling other girls they should as well.

"I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game," she explained. "And if it's a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table."
