Taylor Swift will kick off a promotional tour for her new album, "Red," with a live performance on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

On Monday, the singer appeared on ABC's morning talk show to discuss her new songs, which includes the hit single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." The song has many wondering about the ex that inspired the song. Although the 22-year-old didn't give any names, she said she draws motivation for her songs from real-life.

"For me, music is my way of understanding what I'm feeling. I don't really talk about my love life. I kind of sing about it a lot because I really think that it sounds more poetic and romantic about it with music behind it," Swift said.

Swift writes or co-writes all of her songs. "Red" already shot to No. 1 on iTunes since its midnight release. Her previous album, "Speak Now," sold more than a million copies in its first week.

The six-time Grammy-award winner told "GMA" host George Stephanopoulos that her first celebrity crush was Taylor Hanson and her favorite comfort food is Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal or Pop Tarts.

Swift, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, will be debuting her new song, "Begin Again," at the 46th Annual CMA Awards next week.

The show will be hosted for the fifth time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. It airs live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Thursday, Nov. 1 on ABC7.
