(NEWS.com.au) — Taylor Swift has hit back at her image as a boy crazy serial dater because she turns her failed romances into songs.

In a Vanity Fair cover story, Swift says her public image as a lovesick serial dater is far from the truth, and insists she has only dated two boys since 2010 – Conor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

“For a female to write about her feelings and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist,” Swift said.

The singer said avoids the tabloid and celebrity culture, which have turned her into a “cartoon character.”
