Taylor Swift Chooses Friends Over Boys…For Now [PHOTOS]

A few days before Her National Holiday Valentine’s Day, Taylor Swift shot a music video on Zuma Beach in Malibu.  Surrounded by a handful of girls as she played in the sand and was pushed around in a shopping cart, Swift showcased the inspiration for her newest album, 22.

“I wrote [’22’] about my friends. Finally, I’ve got this amazing group of girlfriends,” Swift told Ryan Seacrest last week (via CNN).”  We tell each other everything, we’re together all the time.

“That was kind of the marker of me being 22, is like, having all these friends. There are a lot of question marks in your life, like where are you going, who are you going to meet, but the one thing that you have is each other.”

After her latest public break-up with One Direction’s Harry Styles, Swift is sitting this V Day out. 

“I’m probably going to be with my friends, or rehearsing,” Swift told Seacrest of her plans, ahead of her Red tour launch. “I’ll be like, working on the lighting rig, and lighting cues. And I don’t think I’d rather be anywhere else, to be honest.”

Swift finds the public’s perception of her amusing.

“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,” she said in the March issue of Elle Magazine. “They’re like ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.’ I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”
