By  | 

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift draws from personal inspiration to write her hit songs, but she recently revealed that not every song she sings is about a break-up. While speaking with VH1, the “Red” singer recalled the love story that helped her write, well, “Love Story.”

“It took me getting mad at my parents because they didn’t want me to date this dude when I was 17, and I threw a fit and ran to my room fit and wrote [the] song on my bedroom floor.” Though at the time, Taylor had no idea what a smash hit the song would be, adding, “That turned into something I never expected it to be. Our first, number one worldwide hit.”
