Taylor Swift Covers 'Elle' April 2010

Country cutie Taylor Swift graces the cover of Elle magazine’s April 2010 issue!

Here’s what the 20-year-old Grammy winner had to share:

On finding inspiration from relationships: “I like to categorize the various levels of heartbreak. I’ve only had that happen once. A letdown is worth a few songs. A heartbreak is worth a few albums.”

On media scrutiny: “I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things. And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny. Like, if I go to a bar, even if I’m not drinking, who’s to say that a source isn’t going to say that I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing? So it’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”

On who she thinks is hot: “Um, well…Taylor Lautner.”

    WTF? When has this girl ever been scrutinized?!?

    LOL what she is even talking about???

  • Janae

    This bish. She thinks she’s so much better than everyone else. Can’t stand girls like her.

  • jack

    that’s a horrible cover

  • dundies

    she should write a whole entire album about fairytales

  • Sweetness

    nothing breeds jealous, hateful comments like success.

    and from the comments made here it’s obvious Swift is mega watts successful.

  • laety

    it’s me or she’s just look like Nicole Kidman ?

  • Whamo

    She sings crappy pop songs with a bit of a twang and they call it Country Music…What a crock, this woman has NO talent compared to the gals of real country. Could you imagine comparing her at her age to a young Reba, Patsy, Loretta and on and on. The music industry is so bad right now it not even funny.

    ====================================================
    There is a big difference between being successful and being talented. The Spice Girls where hugely successful would you consider the talented songwriters?

    Miley Cyrus is extremely successful would you call her talented?

    Just because someone has a different opinion doesn’t make them a hater..I simple makes them a person with a different opinion..and this is mine.

  • yo sista

    I think she’s great! Y’all should stop hating ’cause she looks great & her songs are decent.

  • Brit

    She looks cute. And she does look like Nicole Kidman a little but. Thats a good thing. Nicole is pretty. Anyways.. as for her comment on Taylor Lautner he is cute, but I’m so tired of hearing of him. I’m more of a George Clooney, Brody Jenner, and Patrick Demsey kinda gal. And I’m only 16…. so I need to stop liking all these older men.

  • susanist

    ELLE does not put uglies on its cover. I trust their decision over a bunch of jealous nobodies anyday.

  • Ms Anonymous

    @Janae:

    Actually she doesn’t think so.

  • Ms Anonymous

    @Squinty:

    No they don’t.

  • ME

    Still looks like a rat face, and CAN’T sing!! Can’t believe that her own record company had to cover up the fact that she can’t sing and blamed it on her earpiece.

  • anonmus

    i think she only said “taylor lautner” cos they have a movie together. publicity stunt or whatever.

  • betty

    So Elle is turning into Teen Vogue?

    love the songs

    For all those who criticise Swifts singing, I agree that she isn’t that strong on her vocals, but talented? yes, she is VERY talented. I give her kudos for her genuinity, which nowadays, there is a lack of in the music industry nowadays.
    She deserves to be called an singer, she writes and sings her own music, she even composes it. The reason why everyone likes her is because she is a normal woman and she is genuine.
    In fact, I look up to her, because I know that there are people who are sane and who happen to be the same age as me being succesful. She worked hard and put a lot of guts to build her career, and that hard work paid off, and now everything is a bit easier for her.
