Taylor Swift is featured on the cover of Maxim‘s June/July 2015 issue, on newsstands May 27.
The 25-year-old singer landed the number one spot on the mag’s Hot List this year. Here is what she had to share with the mag:
On being number one: “It’s really nice and such an incredible compliment. This year has been my favorite year of my life so far. I got to make an album exactly the way I wanted to make it. I got to put it out exactly the way I dreamed about putting it out. Every one of these kinds of whims and ideas came to fruition. The videos—I’m proud of those, I’m proud of the tour, I’m proud of the way this all happened. In the midst of all that, this is really nice. It really feels like a wonderful celebration of my favorite year.”
On having so many best friends: “Thankfully, 10 years into my career now, I’ve learned how to work in a smarter way. You have to have time to breathe and have a happy life, and friendships are so important to me. Thankfully—thanks to the fans—now we get to play stadiums, so we do two or three stadium shows a week. I’ll see my friends in whichever city I’m closer to.”
