Taylor ‘I Don’t Compete With Miley, Sel’

Taylor Swift Associated Press interview excerpts: Does being under the microscope make you gun-shy about revealing so much? You know I don’t really rebel in a lot of areas in my life. ..But the one place where I’m allowed to rebel, and the one place where I’m allowed to not worry about ..

..censoring myself is my music. I don’t need to edit names out of songs and I don’t need to edit details out of my songs because I’ve always been able to be honest with my music. That’s the one place where I’m never ever going to change how I do things.

Are you less likely to date someone in the public eye now? When I’m thinking about going on a date with some guy or considering liking him, it really doesn’t matter what they do or how that affects my career.. When you strategize..

..a relationship too much, like, ”We’re not gonna be public about it, and we’re gonna say this in interviews,’ when you think it all out, I think that complicates the relationship and I think that’s unfair for the relationship. I don’t look for..

..boyfriends, I don’t really scour the awards shows for who I’m going to date (laughs), but I think love happens when you’re not looking for it, and when it happens, I’m not going to be the one to overthink it.

What kind of camaraderie do you have with Selena and Miley? I’ve always approached this from the place where I don’t compete with other girls. I don’t compete with other people in the industry, I compete with myself.

If I looked at every other girl in the entertainment industry as competition, my
life would be really lonely. I wouldn’t have some of the coolest friends that I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know over the last couple of years. ..It’s really awesome to get to hang out with those girls and to call them friends.

What’s it like being on the road with one of your best friends [Kellie Pickler]?

Swift: We are just absolutely such close friends and almost like sisters at this point. She and I will like sit in the dressing room ’til 2 or 3 a.m. just talking and painting our nails.

It’s so much fun to just have another person out on tour with you that you know you’re so close with and you’ve known you for a really long time, to the point where you really just feel like they’re family.

Do you want to develop your acting? My favorite thing in the world is telling stories, and most of what I do is telling stories through music. But when I get to tell a story through music videos or ‘CSI,’ that’s fun for me, too.. It’s all about finding the story that I want to tell, so I’m definitely open to acting roles, it just depends on the story.

Has success been overwhelming? Well, it’s really fun. I wanted this,
since the time I was a little girl. I’ve always just wished that maybe
someday people would care about the words that I wrote.

I’m so
lucky that my songs are basically my diary put to music. I’m so lucky
that I get to write my own music and write my own stories, so every
single time I look down in the audience and I see somebody singing the
words back to me, it makes it all worth it.
Thx Emily!

    This is one of the reason’s why I couldn’t date a Jonas cause lil a-holes like they’re fans would hate you for being close to them. I love how you Jonas Fans talk like you actually have a better chance with them. Better yet, I love how you guys think you know everything about Miley and Tay’s Tay’s personal lives. Some of you act like The Joaneses are the only men that have been in their lives. There’s a world full of men people! Wake up and smell the coffe! And Don’t hate because the closet you’ll ever get to dating a jonas is in your sleep! HA HA!

    but u know something thats bugging is that
    i think its odd how taylor is so close to Disney stars and shes not a disney star
    its like she stalked them and befriended them to get more publicity (cuz their disney)

    i know, but what she says in interviews is a reflexion of her personality, but then again…. i like her songs and it’s part of her personality…ugh, it’s hard to explain, but it’s just that i don’t like the way she think about stuff. hope you know what i mean

    Amen sister. Like last night, someone said that the Grammy performance was meant to be an FU to the brothers. By then, Miley was all ready making amends with them from the Golden Globes and the Kids Inaugural. The Maylor friendship is not based on the brothers.

    Joe isn’t the only guy she’s dated, you know.
    She’s used other names and details in her songs…

  • zoe

    yup, she’s honest…that’s good
    i don’t hate her, but well…i don’t like her personalitly i’m sorry, but it’s just that you can’t like every person.
    But her music is great and i like listening to her songs. we probably wouldn’t get along.

    aw. i like how she handles questions. its usually much different from your typical star. very her as oppose to who people want her to be. cute.

    right :)
    drew (teardrops on my guitar), stephen (hey stephen), sam (the secret message in should’ve said no), cory (stay beautiful)…

    btw, i love her, she’s just so honest and nice with everyone, and she really cares about her fans.

    Why do people always bring joe into this it’s pointless and selena annoys me too much. I wonder what the comments would be like on all the Taylor posts if ahe never dated joe.

  • ;)

    ps
    she’s reaaally skinny… I swear she didnt used to be that slim?

  • Anonymous

    ugg why does everything have turn into being about a certain person. cant she just be speaking about experience instead of automatically connecting it to someone.
