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.”
