Taylor Swift Doesn't Want Friends Who Will Fawn Over Her

Taylor Swift Doesn't Want Friends Who Will Fawn Over Her

Taylor Swift takes the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue as the mag’s Woman of the Year, on newsstands December 8.

Here is what the 24-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On ​being “perfectly happy” being single: “I, however, am 24, perfectly happy being alone, and one of the reasons I’m perfectly happy being alone is that no one gets hurt this way.”

On having genuine friendships: “I feel uncomfortable being the No. 1 priority in my friends’ lives — I want to be there to make their lives more fun, if they need to talk, to be there for spontaneous and exciting adventures, but I don’t want friends who don’t have a life outside of me… They have me in their life because they want me in their life, not because they gain from it.”

On many celebrity relationships: “You’ll notice a lot of celebrity-type people tend to surround themselves with people whose lives revolve around them. You’ll have a posse of these exciting and fashionable cling-ons, and it’s because those celebrities need to be fawned over.”

On pushback on changing her sound from pop to country: “Everyone, in and out of the music business, kept telling me that my opinion and my viewpoint was naive and overly optimistic — even my own label. But when we got those first-day numbers in, all of a sudden, I didn’t look so naive anymore.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing a Pamella Roland dress in the second photo.

    Im sorry. I really used to like her… but she seems fake, she was caught lying many times, even when her naked picture leaked she lied it wasnt her (when it obviously was her) she plays this innocent face because it makes her a lot of money. she always talks about how many records she sold…and how she doesnt like her music to be “free to listen”. shes saying that she is single, but flirts with guys from 1975 and 5SoS… Im not buying her “good girl” image anymore.
