Taylor Swift: Glamour Girl August 2009
Gorgeous!!!!! Interview snippets below:
On maintaining who she is, famous or not: I’ve never felt like I needed to tone down being seen as a regular person. When I first started doing MySpace, I wrote by bio in the first person. I didn’t want [it] to look like a publicity promo site, so I was the one doing all the commenting, and I was the one putting up the pictures and videos. I’ve approached my whole career like that—I don’t see that ever changing.
On using her real life to inspire her songs: For me, rebelling is done with words: I love to write honest songs that name real people, then get up onstage and live out those emotions in front of of 15,000 people. Penciling in a night to get wasted is not something I want to do.
On the logisitics of having a boyfriend: 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 and 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!
