5 Celebrities Who are Inspired by Love

Posted by PZ on March 21st, 2012

These 5 stars have all been greatly influenced by the strong emotion that is love: for some, it has inspired them to write music, while for others it has provided other inspiration. Taylor Swift is known for always writing about her past loves in her music, while actor Dev Patel has admitted that his relationship with Freida Pinto is a constant source of inspiration for him, and his relationship allows him to be himself.


Bob Geldof

Bob unexpectedly found love which made him write a new album: “Without love things are utterly empty. Now, that sounds too w***y but it’s true. I’m so old, so ugly, I thought love would never come my way again. Then it did and allowed me to write an album again.”

Taylor Swift

Taylor is fascinated with love and all of the other emotions that accompany it: “I think that love is always going to be a huge theme in what I write about just because there are no two similar relationships, there are no two times that you feel love the same way or hurt the same way or [feel] rejection in the same way. It’s all different and I’m fascinated by that. I really love to go back to human interaction and the way we make each other feel. But that at 22 is different than it was at 18 or 19 when I made my last album and 16 and 17 when I made ‘Fearless’. As you grow, you change in the way you process emotion.”

Rachel McAdams

Rachel in inspired by her parents and their loving relationship: “They are still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand.”

Lana Del Rey

Lana writes her music about past loves: “Even though I can’t be with that person anymore, I still want to honour those memories. I felt like falling in love changed me, neurologically and the record is about being faithful in my mind to the memory of that particular person. I’m in contact with his mother. He’s somewhere else but he’s around.”

Dev Patel

Dev feels safe in his relationship with Freida Pinto which inspires him: “Love makes you feel safe but excited at the same time. Freida makes me happy and inspires me. I am a mushy guy. You get to show a different side of yourself that you’re not very comfortable showing other people. It’s great to have someone to come back to who you can be real with, because you’re playing characters all day long.”
