Taylor Swift Says She Has No Female Role Models in Music
Taylor Swift keeps cozy in knee-high boots and a sweater as she heads out of her apartment on Thursday afternoon (November 13) in New York City.
Recently, the 24-year-old singer revealed that she hasn’t found any female to look to as a model of where she’d like her career to go.
“We’re taught to find examples for the way we want our lives to wind up,” Taylor told Time magazine. “But I can’t find anyone, really, who’s had the same career trajectory as mine. So when I’m in an optimistic place I hope that my life won’t match anyone else’s life trajectory, either, going forward.”
She continued to say: “I do have female role models in the sense of actresses like Mariska Hargitay. I think she has a beautiful life, and an incredible career, and I think she’s built that for herself. She’s one of the highest paid actresses—actors in general, women or men—on television, and she’s been playing this very strong female character for, what, 15 years now, something like that. And Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. I really love her business, and how she sticks to who she is, and how people relate to it.”
