NASHVILLE - Taylor Swift has said that there is a personal matter going on within her family that is causing lots of sadness.
The 22-year-old singer revealed to Grilletta Brewburger with Yippee-Ki-Yay Magazine that after 24 years of wedded bliss her parents Mr. and Mrs. Swift have separated.
Taylor said that there are several reasons for the separation but she pointed out that the main reason is that both want to be the one that gets to approve what songs she will put on her albums.
In the beginning of her career both parents had final say as to approving or disproving her song choices but lately Taylor has said that she feels that since she's 22, and since it is her career, after all, that she should be the one to decide what songs go into the album, just like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Ke$ha do.
But Scott Swift (daddy) and Andrea Swift (mommy) are both adamant that each one be the sole decider. This major rift has caused lots of dissension especially during special times like Sunday evening family dinners, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and cornbread making Friday's.
A spokesperson for the young country artist has said that Taylor is seriously thinking about writing her next song about her parents separation in hopes that it embarrasses them both back into reality.
