Quick to respond to a recent news report over her lyrical content bashing former boyfriends, hot new teenage songstress Taylor Swift, is denying assertions that she hates men.
Though her previously released hits include clear references to former boyfriends and how they all fell into the "scumbag" category, Swift claims that her new album will be filled with happier song content.
Insiders close to Taylor Swift's recording studio disagree. Sound technician Max Decibel claims that Swift is still on a man-hating tirade. "It's almost as bad as the Jagged Little Pill Album from Alanis Morissette. She was one pissed off chick, but Taylor's lyrics are worse than that".
When prompted for examples, Decibel recounted earlier studio sessions when Swift was experimenting with working titles and lyrics. "Cut Them Off was a work in progress title that contained words in the chorus like, Go ahead and be mean and I'll cut 'em off clean. Another song titled Painful Encounter, highlights Taylor running her boyfriend over with her car after confronting him in a motel parking lot with another woman. Those lyrics include, Run over my heart and I run over you". Decibel followed with, "Man that chick is cold. She's hot, but she's cold, if you know what I mean."
Engaged in more damage control, Swift's agent Dewey Bender, released a new statement to the press. "I want to be clear that Taylor does not hate men at all. She's had trouble with love now and then, but she loves men and has no intention of going down the Lohan path."
The new album is expected to be released next month with the title, "Piss Me Off and I Piss on You". "It's truly a feel-good collection of love songs." Bender says.
