Taylor Swift to 'Glamour': Taking My Clothes Off Isn't 'Risky'

Taylor Swift to 'Glamour': Taking My Clothes Off Isn't 'Risky'

Taylor Swift rocks her signature color on the cover of Glamour magazine’s March 2014 issue, on newsstands February 11.

Here’s what the 24-year-old country cutie had to share with the mag:

On being a role model: “I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have. For me “risky” is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”

On knowing when to not read about herself: “I know when not to read an article. Is it going to help my day? Is it important for my life? If the answer is no, then I just don’t click…. I’m careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don’t have the option of having thick skin. As a writer you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet criticizing every single thing about you. If you’re me.”

On freezing men out in a relationship: “I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.”

    “playing it straight” is what her closeted boyfriends do. She’s basically become the new way to come out.

    ” Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is….” This is why I don’t care for this girl. She plays coy and acts like she doesn’t point fingers at specific people, but then she does telling interviews like this (and even admitted it at her “Red” release party) and admits she knows EXACTLY what she’s doing. She’s the mean girl in high school that takes her popularity and ruins others with it, not the band geek who gets picked on by all the cool kids and instead finds her niche with the band geeks and normal crowd …an Image she readily identifies herself with. I’d actually argue it takes more skill to hide who your songs are about, but that’s just me. Either way, yes, I know as I write this she’s making millions and that she’s plenty popular enough so my opinion really doesn’t matter. But I really have come to not care for this girl and find it laughable that people still love to hold her up as a role model for the rest of Hollywood, when she’s clearly self-indulgent and full of herself after being in the limelight for a bit.

    they weren’t in it for lemonade and cookies

    @Lauren P.: You deserve a cookie.

    She’s actually the best role model but people can’t see it because they put a goddamn “serial-dater” label on her.

    Taylor is the ultimate mean girl. I originally was a fan but when I saw her true character emerge,her arrogance and her vindictive nature….I found her to be quite repulsive!

    A Says:

    Seriously?! You people are pathetic! Judging the golden girl! Thank god she isn’t selling herself like Miley is! Taylor is down to earth and a good role model for young people, and they need something like this cause it seems like everybody is stripping these days and it’s disgusting

    karie Says:

    Yes, I recall her getting all defensive saying she never names the guys she writes about, but now admits that she deliberately makes it obvious who the songs are about! You cant have it both ways.

    James Says:

    @Lauren P.: Sometimes some comments make sense in here and are written honestly by someone smart. Thank you for writing that one. I have the same feeling about her.

    lia Says:

    how about writing about something other your exes?

  12. 12
    A Says:

    AND you who said that she is the ultimate mean girl, you are so goddamn wrong! So what if she writes and sings about her exes?! Tells who they really are or what kind of jerks guys can be?! We all want our revenge! And I’m jealous that she gets her revenge! So those guys who are playing with her will get played back one way or another

  13. 13
    lia Says:

    I would love to hear the guys’ side. When every guy you date is a supposed jerk, I think it is time to look at the common denominator….YOURSELF.

    holly Says:

    @A: So I’m guessing “A” stands for A S S! You need a case of soap in that nasty mouth of yours!!

    whitney Says:

    why would any guy want to date her and risk being in one of her songs? sometimes i think she just dates for writing material.

  16. 16
    holly Says:

    @Hannah: You should really get off the weed and also stuff your mouth with a case of soap, maybe you and “A” are the same person!

    Sam Says:

    @A: Revenge is not the answer. It’s the lowest of lows and simply tacky. Bitter.

    @Lauren P.: You are right on the money Lauren. One day she will see what Karma looks like. Right now, we’ll let her enjoy her moments.

    A Says:

    Seriously Holly?? Why so jealous?? And once again she hasn’t bashed on all exes! Like she didn’t bash on Gyllenhall, why are people saying that she is? Her latest album is about Gyllenhall, well most of the songs. Especially All Too Well, have you heard that song?? She just hates how it ended, the relationship. And also she has never bashed on Taylor Lautner and Cory Monteith and that young prince guy she was with couple years ago

    Lucy Says:

    @A….Taylor is that you?

    Lauren P. Says:


    Sure, some people may want revenge but you have to realize Taylor is playing a totally different ballgame solely because of the business she’s in. As a celebrity she has a lot of influence, and she has the potential to ruin someone’s career based on the simple principle of “He said, she said” because she has millions of adoring fans who’d do anything for her. Public perception is everything in this industry and she makes sure that she always comes out of every situation looking pure as the driven snow. And I get it…I mean as a girl it’s probably easy for her to tell herself she’s done everything right in a relationship and the other person holds all the blame, which seems to be her problem. But Taylor doesn’t just sing about those general feelings, she points out exactly who they’re about so legions of adoring fans will take her side and boost her ego after a guy has broken her heart. And is that other person really deserving of the public backlash which has the potential to hurt a career they’ve worked very hard to craft? Personally I don’t think she has that right. She has the right to be mad, but not to abuse her influence to make herself feel better. Taylor has a lot of growing to do…and for someone who loves to shout from the rooftops about how normal and unaffected she is, she’s in for a reality check. Taylor plays the game just as well as anybody else in Hollywood. I applaud her for staying away from drugs and alcohol at her age, but hubris and ego are just as dangerous. She’s delusional if she thinks she doesn’t have an air of self-importance and pretentiousness around her that she didn’t have when she started. I’m not saying it makes her an awful person…but it does make her flawed like the rest of us and not exactly worthy of constant, glowing praise about how perfect she is.

    holly Says:

    @A: Not jealous, just see her for what she is like so many others. Of course she didn’t bash Lautner, we ALL know he is a nice person and nobody would EVER buy that lie from her. She can’t bash them all but she will as many as she can.

  23. 23
    A Says:

    I don’t understand why you people say that she has told about whom her songs are about. Cause I have no idea, I’m just guessing. And she doesn’t blame every ex, Back to December is example, she sings about how much she did a guy wrong, guessing Taylor Lautner xD

  24. 24
    Lauren P. Says:


    I’d actually argue she DID bash on Gyllenhaal. We Are Never Getting Back Together completely tore into the subject…and she confirmed that subject was Jake in her Katie Couric interview. Though in her own roundabout way, of course, because she loves to play coy. “Oh, I didn’t know anyone had figured that out.”
