Taylor Swift signing autographs outside the Hyatt Hotel on Saturday in Berlin, Germany. Taylor revealed to Sunday Mail that she’s a huge Eminem fan: ‘When I was 16 I used to open my shows with a cover of Eminem’s Lose Yourself.
I was just this young girl playing a guitar so to get myself noticed I would come on and rap. It worked, people remembered me. I’d love to work with someone on a hip hop song, like Dido did with Eminem or Tim McGraw did with Nelly.
I like the idea of strange collaborations with artists outside of what I do. I am a massive fan of Jack White and Kings Of Leon, they are my favorite band right now so working with them would be incredible.’
On the industry: ‘I don’t want people to think of me as sexy. It’s about getting my words across, not how I look. I have showed up at shoots and found a rack of bras waiting for me. I have to ask them to go and get some clothes.
It doesn’t have to be done in a diva way, you have to be polite and treat people with respect, they are only doing their job and trying to sell magazines. My job is to sell records that does not mean I’ll forget my principles or disrespect myself.’
On Miley: ‘Miley has gone through a lot and she is only 16. When things go wrong for her all I can do is hear her out and say I’m sorry, just like any friend
in a bad situation.’
