Taylor Swift not afraid to show 'raw emotions' in public

You Belong With Me singer Taylor Swift has said that she is never afraid to show her ''raw, real emotions'' in public.

The 23-year-old star hopes her fans can empathise with her honest songs.

Speaking to New York magazine, Swift said: ''I think allowing yourself to feel raw, real emotions in public is something I am never going to be afraid to do.

''Hopefully that's the case, if I can remain a real human. I'm fine with being honest with my fans about the fact that it's okay that everything isn't okay all the time.

''I love my life, I love my career, I love my friends - but things are not OK all the time. So I don't sing about things being OK all the time.''

Swift further explained that she plans to mainly write songs when she gets older, adding: ''When I'm 40 and nobody wants to see me in a sparkly dress any more, I'll be, like, 'Cool, I'll just go in the studio and write songs for kids.' It's looking like a good pension plan.''
