Taylor Swift: PARADE Magazine Cover, Album Release Festivities!

Taylor Swift‘s hair blows in the wind as she graces the cover of Parade magazine’s October 24 issue.

When the 20-year-old Speak Now singer was asked about her love life, she shared, “Things change so quickly. I have no idea who’s going to be a recurring character and who’s just a guest star for one episode. Love is fascinating. Wishing for it, pining for it, and the anger that comes when you lose it. I used to think that I could figure out some pattern to love, like if you don’t text a guy back for a half hour, he’ll like you more. But there is no pattern. Absolutely nothing is predictable in love or in life.”

    does she ever think about anything else besides dating…?

    kizbit Says:

    @ pixy: I doubt it. She’s a 21 year old woman. That’s about all there is to think about at her age…remember? And she obviously speaks for MANY young women out there because she is wildly popular and hugely successful.

    that’s a really crappy cover tho. looks like a photo from the 80s. or a glamour shot.

    gia Says:


    yeah, or maybe an 80s photo plus whoever did the artwork for the twilight posters….not a good thing.

    i want to know why her make-up artist never gives her a warm look even though she’s so pretty. she has smaller features so heavy eye makeup, dark lipstick (which wasn’t even filled in properly…look how uneven it is), and matte skin doesn’t do anything for her. combined with the fact that she never really shows her teeth when she smiles it looks like she’s insincere even when she’s trying to emote happiness. it’s always a cocked eyebrow and mouth slightly ajar. seriously…look at her website, more than half her promo hotos are her trying to give this “coy” look.

    lila Says:

    You people are idiots.
    She said that she writes songs about her freinds relationships, her parents, and she can see a guy from across a room and write a song about him. Im sure that if someone looks sad, she writes about that too.

    Bree Says:

    She has no range or variety, although I prefer her SLIGHTLY more than auto-tune queens like Ke$ha. Boring, repetitive songs matched with limited singing skill (anyone see her grammy performance?! bleh!) = Taylor Swift.

    jess Says:

    @gia: everything u said is right. that is strange that she never shows her teeth when she smiles…….

    Bree Says:

    When will people start listening to real artists? Kick out Bieber and Swift! I don’t hate them personally, but they suck at singing live! Green Day, Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillait, U2, and Bon Jovi on the other hand, all sound amazing live!

    waco Says:

    Bree- all of the mentioned have had bad live days. Do not kid yourself. Taylors latest lives have been pretty good. Seems like she is getting better.

    Jenn Says:

    I used to like her music when it first came out. Now her songs sound all the same.

    God I’m sick of her!

    I’d rather date a 1000 toads to find my prince than give up and settle for mr. wrong.

    MZ SASS Says:


    I agree with your comments. She was so HORRIBLE on the Grammy’s I felt sorry for Stevie Nicks.
    Isn’t she dating that guy from The Buried Life?

    She’s terribly overrated. I’m tired of hearing about her.

    Sarah Says:

    You guys will bash anything just to think what you have to say is relevant or important. I find it amusing. Seriously, what are you doing?

    Andie Says:

    LOL people here are idiots omg! Hey news flash you can write 2 albums in a relationship! And you can be inspired by little things that isn’t even your own experiences! Stop the hate! Fad isn’t always wrong! She’s the real deal! Have seen her many times live and all of them she brilliantly delivered! But yeah, haters gonna hate I guess!
