Taylor Swift featured in August 2009 issue of Glamour. Full interview here. Scans @ TaylorSwiftWeb. You have said: ‘Music is my boyfriend.‘ How do you date when you’re famous? I don’t date a lot. The other day I was in my dressing room with one of my closest friends, Kellie Pickler, who is also my opening act..
..and she said something really interesting to me: ‘We can only give someone what’s left over.’ She does the same thing I do, so she knows what it’s like to do interviews all day and give your heart and soul on stage every night. After all of that is taken, we can only give someone what’s left. So it’s hard.
On relationships: It’s always going to be long distance, even if I date the boy who lives next door to me in Nashville. I’ll be flying to see him, flying him places to see me. It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot of scheduling in my life. Of course, if I met somebody who was worth it, I would probably stop thinking that way!
Body insecurities? I think the reason a lot of celebrities feel insecure and want to stop eating altogether is because they see so many pictures of themselves on a daily basis. It’s unhealthy how many times you see your own image, it’s just constant. When you see something enough, you’re going to tear it down..
..to the point where some days you feel like you’re not even pretty. I get insecure about my eyes because I once read a blog comment that said, ‘Her eyes are so small.’ I thought, Are my eyes small? Oh no, they are! I’ve stopped reading the....comments below news articles and on gossip
blogs because those are the ones that’ll ruin your day in a second. I read my MySpace comments because they’re awesome. You just have to be
careful and filter the information you give yourself. Do you want to
open the slam book today? Nope.
Are you a workaholic? Yes. I get really restless when I haven’t worked for a day and a half.
I have a recurring dream that people are lined up next to my bed,
waiting for autographs and taking pictures of me!
On dealing with fame: I get some paparazzi, but not enough to make me ever not appreciate
what I have. It’s like, I wanted one thing [my] whole life.. I’m not
going to get it and then complain about it.
Where she sees herself in 10 or 20 years: As far as my career goes, I hope I’m still touring. I’d love to always
be present in music, writing songs, but I’m not the kind of person who
will hang around if I become irrelevant.
I’ll bow out gracefully, raise
my kids and have a garden. And I’m going to
let my hair go gray when
I’m older, I don’t need to be blond when I’m 60!
