Taylor Swift Harper’s Bazaar Cover Girl


Taylor Swift told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘There’s just something so feminine about a dress/ Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife, which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason, I just really like dresses.’

How many dresses do you have? ‘Hundreds. Because I’m in a predicament where I can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines, so ‘she starts laughing’ unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time.’ She wears jeans in the winter: ‘I think doing something that’s different, that’s out of your comfort zone is important. Personal growth, let’s call it that.’

On money: ‘I don’t tend to spend a lot of money on the big things, like cars or jewelry. I’ll rent a house on the beach or something, bring my girlfriends.’ On Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: ‘We never talk about fashion, about career, about our ambitions or our projects. We just talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.’

Taylor gives up some control when dating: ‘It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up. It’s the ultimate collaboration. Sometimes it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.’

Who Taylor chooses to be with is one of the world’s great preoccupations. “What I had to learn to do, in order to maintain a general happiness in my life, was to stop reading everything,” she says, getting fired up. “And then it gets really bad if you go through a breakup and those blogs have these polls asking, ‘Who should they date next?’ And you’re just sitting there staring at the laptop bawling.” She pauses. “But you can live in a normal world where a breakup is just a breakup if you don’t expose yourself to what’s being speculated about yourself. That’s where I live now.”

She is, however, about to be living on a plane. Taylor is deep in promotion for her new album, Red, which is “about the tumultuous adventures and misadventures and love and loss that I’ve experienced in the last two years.” She’s already had one number-one single, so next, the inevitable tour. “I’m not used to being in a place more than two days in a row,” she says, adding, “I don’t know if I have a vacation for another year. You get really good at maintaining phone relationships with people you love, because you’re just not going to get to see them all the time.”

There is nothing Taylor controls more, though, than her songs—a narrative of her life with a hook, a chorus, and just enough mystery to keep people guessing. And those tricky relationships will continue to be her main source of inspiration: “Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction.”

But unlike the rest of us who sit at home and eat our feelings, Taylor focuses on writing. “Despite all of that and how unpleasant it is, as a writer you get a lot from it. It’s a crazy justification system. You know that guy you really wish you could erase from your memory? But then the answer is track six, eight, 12, and 13.”

    If she feels like she’s wearing the pants she starts to feel uncomfortable and that’s when we break up — WTF??? I’m thinking they couldn’t get into her pants, that’s why they broke up.
