Swift, 20, and Lautner, 18, dated for about three months in 2009. The pop singer also dated fellow musician Joe Jonas for several months in 2008 and was famously dumped via telephone.

"Hes one of my best friends," Swift said of Lautner in comments made to Glamour magazine. "Hes wonderful, and we'll always be close. I'm so thankful for that."

Swift is set to release her third studio album, Speak Now, on October 25. The record's title track was posted on iTunes on Tuesday. She has said some of the tracks feature live strings and a full orchestra. The record follows her 2008 album Fearless, which sold 5.95 million copies in the United States alone.

Swift says she is not afraid to sing about specific experiences and events from her personal life.

"Everything that happens to me gets put into a song," she said. "For some reason, Im really comfortable talking about my personal life in songs. There, I dont hold back: names, dates, times, expressions on people's faces, exactly where we were and how it felt, what I wish I would have said to them in the moment."

"I do write nice songs about the guys who are nice to me," she added. "Eventually, Im sure one of them will write a response - thats a pretty scary concept, actually! But I make sure I only write bad songs about the ones who deserve it."

Swift says that she's been both "careful" and "careless" when it comes to falling in love.

"At times Ive been really guarded and careful and afraid to trust someone," she said. "But other times, you want to jump in headfirst. I've had moments of thinking, 'This is who I love and I dont care what anyone says.' Those moments are beautiful and wild and exciting, but I've learned that those moments can end up hurting you in the end."
