The producers behind VH1 Storytellers, the long-running series where musicians reveal themselves to be quirky human beings and not robots by sharing some of the things that inspired their repertoire, announced some artists who will be heading up the show’s upcoming season.

The premiere, which airs at 11 p.m. EST on November 11, will feature the confirmed well-paid Taylor Swift, who will regale viewers with stories of her short-lived goth phase and maybe just who the indie snob she dated is. Swift is currently hosting a competition where her fans can vote for the high school or college where she’ll film her episode.

The next day at the same time, the show will feature Alicia Keys, who might provide some interesting Whitney Houston tales, since she performed at the singer’s funeral or, on a lighter note, some rationale behind her participation in the “Megaupload Mega Song.” She should also have some good VMA stories by then, too.

And the third artist announced today was Pink, whose episode airs November 13. “I have always loved Storytellers and, as a songwriter, how much fun it is to be able to tell your stories,” she told EW. When they asked her about her stories, she said, “Everyone has heard mine before!” Still, we’re gunning for Linda Perry revelations, the assuredly fun major label experience of (sort of) titling a song “Blow Me”, and maybe what she really thinks CNN’s usage of one of her songs in regard to Sarah Palin.
