Taylor Swift Covers 'Vogue' February 2012

Taylor Swift Covers 'Vogue' February 2012

Taylor Swift wears Rodarte on the cover of Vogue‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (January 24).

Here’s what the 22-year-old country cutie had to share:

On feeling like an outsider: “I think who you are in school really sticks with you. I don’t ever feel like the cool kid at the party, ever. It’s like, Smile and be nice to everybody, because you were not invited to be here.”

On her future: “I fret about the future. What my next move should be. What the move after that should be. How I am going to sustain this. How do I evolve. I get so ahead of myself. I’m like, ‘What am I going to be doing at 30?’ But there’s no way to know that! So it’s this endless mind-boggling equation that you’ll never figure out. I overanalyze myself into being a big bag of worries.”

On her fourth album: “There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak, and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. The only way that I can feel better about myself – pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone – is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.

    she is talking about jake for sure!

    she is talking about jake for sure.

  • AmberWaves

    mbp, you have the emotions of a twelve year old! Taylor had a lot of relationships that lasted a lot longer than theless than two months or so that she actually dated him a few times. I think he hyped it up to get publicity for his movie.

    I think his fans must think Taylor is crazy! Not everything is about Jake! She has a personal life that includes a lot of other people. In fact, she even dated a few other guys for a lot longer than him.

    Jared, I like these quotes from the article. They show Taylor is a thoughtful person, who is also a planner. You don’t see a lot of young recording artists thinking about the future and being so sensible as well as so talented.

  • Alaia

    Oh that’s nasty. Don’t give this stupid cow any more attention. All she does is sing her generic Dear Diary songs.

  • Please!!!

    I hate that shes all about straight hair now. I love her, but she looks like every other blonde now.

  • http://tayswift.cz/ tayswiftcz

    She’s SO CLASSY. I love photo from inside with band. Very sixties.

  • lisa

    I love the seventies rockstar vibe of the photo shoot. I can’t wait for the new album.

  • teri

    I like Taylor she seems really sweet.

  • I say…

    She looks great in Bohemiam style rather than the Southern belle she prefers.

    Her mother calls the shots. Don’t let this article fool you.

  • http://www.theinfamouslife.com miss infamous

    Pretty girl. Pretty pix. Horrible/Mediocre singer. I still don’t see how she is famous

  • keeley

    she’s so funny because everything to her is earth-shattering heartbreak.

  • Kevin

    Not buying into her. She comes from a rich family, which is how she got started and it’s pretty widely known that Jake is gay and he and Taylor were not actually dating. Ted Casablanca clearly stated that Taylor benefited from their arrangement because the world is dying to hear what she has to say about Jake. It`s all PR honeys.

  • Patricia

    She still sounds and looks like a 17 year old playing dress up. And talk about PR savy, Miss Swift has learned that lesson well. She’s still trying to get PR mileage out of a 2 month PR staged bearding set-up with Jake G. The entire “relationship” was totally unbelievable and made Jake look like a pathetic loser. Is this her and CAA’s way of throwing another dig at ex-client Jake? Please. When will Taylor and her whiny voice go away.

  • nes

    man, ta photos look nothin like her so photoshoped.

  • Sarah89

    isn’t everyone tired of her? I know I am. It’s same thing every time.. she breaks up with someone.. write a song/album about it.. and we know who it’s about..

  • Pickles

    In person she is reall not attractive. I agree with Patricia @ #16.

  • Sarah89

    isn’t everyone tired of her already? I know I am. It’s same thing every time.. she breaks up with someone.. writes a song/album about it.. she doesn’t say who it’s about.. but we already know who..

  • athena

    Finally, I must say, she looks pretty on the cover and unlike a she has the constant smell of something on her face. Wow, can’t wait to read the article…I can’t believe that she had considered to date Jake Gyllenhaal…I think eventhough she was of age…the difference seemed inappropiate to me…or maybe I had higher standards for Jake.

  • Anon

    She looks ten times better with straight hair.

  • Bibi

    The best cover from Vogue America in a long time. Looks like a fashion magazine finally no matter who is on the cover. I couldn’t tell that was Taylor Swift, looks like a fashion model.

  • marisa

    For all of you saying that she’s not that attractive, I think she’s a great role model, and she’s beautiful inside and out. Thank you for being one of my biggest inspirations Taylor!! :)

  • Pickles

    Right, “marisa” because you really know her, huh? All we know is the prepared comments she rehearses to insert in a magazine article, and the image they promote of her. Even with all that she seems really odd.

    If you need to get “inspired” you should find some better role models. There are real people in your life who are worht knowing. Taylor Swift is a “brand” that is marketed to death. Wake up! It’s pretty pathetic that they have to reach back to use someone to promote her as having “boyfriends.”

    2 HATERS > All you are is mean
    And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life
    And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

  • A

    She’s wearing a wig. Whenever you see Taylor with straight hair, it’s a wig she uses! She has said so herself and you can kind of tell. She doesn’t straighten her hair because the heath damages it and it takes too long. A lot of hollywood actresses and singers wear wigs and extensions because it’s better for the hair for events and such, especially photoshoots.

  • seela

    Pretty nice cover. I miss when Vogue covers actually looked like classy Vogue covers instead of trashy tabloid covers so this is quite refreshing! If you look at alot of the international Vogue’s they still look like fashion bibles and use Supermodels on their covers. Too Bar American Vogue went the celeb route. I like Taylor but if Kim K is ever put on the cover I will lose all hope.

  • ummm

    @A: um you’re right she didn’t straighten her hair. Only the best hairstylists in the world did. They have the best tools,products and techniques. They can turn curly hair into stick straight easily, lol.

  • Lila

    she is a terrible singer, ugly, and very annoying- GROSSSSSSSSSS

  • kami

    taylor is a smart, articulate young woman with a good head on her shoulders. so so so many young girls in the entertainment business don’t respect or like themselves. they settle for second, third or fourth best when it comes to a bf because they can’t exist without one. i get that a lot of ppl don’t like her cause she’s different, but that’s all good and something to be proud of. why would she want to be a pot smoking, binge drinking, s-e-x obsessed typical hw girl? she’s better than that.

  • Pickles

    I’m not jealous of her or hateful or a bad person. I just don’t like her. Her music sounds all the same to me and I think she is a fake image.
    She has awesome advertising. You can’t avoid her even when you want to.

  • http://Facebook Matt

    Hey Taylor I hear ya. I think you should try just dating some normal guy just outside the bussiness. Someone that is not out for publicity and just a hometown guy brought up by good parents and has a good out look on life. Next time your in washington hit me up and I will show you : ) check my face book first though so You know your not getting some weirdo! haha Mattew cox sumner wa

  • A

    @ummm: Right, but all the hairstylists in the world can’t fix heat damage that curly hair can get from straightening. But what do I know, you should ask Tay Tay yourself since it’s from HER I got it. She said so herself. go ahead, ask her. I dare you.

  • steph

    She looks like the German model Julia Stegner in these photos! I like what Vogue did with her here. It’s a nice change from the sequin dresses and wavy, side parted hair.

  • Stacey

    she’s very tacky and simple for VOGUE #epicfail

  • Mia

    What in photoshop hell…

  • http://www.taylorswift.com wonderstruck to paulie

    if you don’t like her why are you seeing this photoshoot? pathetic!

  • Yoggy

    “the pain of losing someone” – her friend passed away on her 3rd CD release week. And she lost a fan to cancer. You people forgot that. There are numerous blogs about her visiting children hospital, without publicity. It’s all just: you don’t know what you don’t know.

  • jen

    @Pickles:
    Pickles??? really? And YOU know her……sounds like someone needs to get over it.

    Taylor looks amazing and I Love all her work!!!

  • irene olson

    Whatever about Taylor, the bottom line is she has a great publicist. She needs a great publicist and the tweens for fans. The girl cannot sing and she is a terrible actress. Enough of Taylor.
