Taylor Swift Didn't Drink Alcohol Until She Turned 21 Years Old
Taylor Swift opens up about her life as part of the upcoming Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 special.
According to Us Weekly, the 24-year-old singer answers questions about everything from dating to her “good girl” image.
“I mean, I do drink, I am 25,” Taylor said. (She turns 25 on December 13.) “So it’s not like, I mean…Yeah, I was at a Knicks game and I had a beer and everybody was like, ‘Ohhh!’ I was like, ‘Tsk.’”
She added, “I did wait until I was 21 to drink. I was so paranoid about getting in trouble or setting the wrong example or sending the wrong message.”
“I put every one of my actions through a filter before I do them because that’s the way my life is,” Taylor explained. “That the reality…If I do something reckless or thoughtless or careless, or I treat someone badly, that doesn’t just affect me; it affects that person. Then, if that story gets out, or some 10-year-old sees that I did that in a news article… my actions do have ripples.”
As for her dating life, Taylor said “I don’t see a scenario right now, the way my life is, in which it could work. So I don’t think about it because I don’t like to think about things that I can’t solve.”
