Taylor Swift Talks – and Sings – About Her Split with Joe Jonas
“[It’s] a song about watching somebody completely fade away in a relationship and wondering what you did wrong,” Swift, 18, tells PEOPLE about “Forever and Always,” the track inspired by her October split with Jonas, 19. The song appears on her new album Fearless, due Nov. 11.
Swift also tells PEOPLE that she’s not ready to date again and prefers being alone – for now.
“I would hate to jump into something so quickly and have it not be the right thing, because I don’t think I could take that right now,” she says.
During their summer romance, neither Swift nor Jonas would admit they were dating. But on Wednesday, Swift finally confirmed that they were a couple, and said Jonas is the only guy who’s ever hurt her “deeply.”
“It’s been tough,” she said of their breakup while chatting with [CELEBRITY_LINK” “” “” “0” ] on his KIIS-FM radio show. “You just have to try to realize someday you’ll find someone that’s right for you.”
At the 4:20 mark, Swift holds up a Joe Jonas doll and says, “See, this one even comes with a phone. So he can break up with other dolls.” A few scenes later, she holds up a Taylor Swift doll and says, “Stay away from him, ok?”
