At only 24 years of age, Grammy award winner Taylor Swift has managed to not only be a role model for teens and young adults, but someone parents of young girls hope their daughters will grow to look up to. The country/pop music star whose hit album Red is number one in more than 50 countries, recently “sat down with Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive for the magazine’s March 75th anniversary issue to talk about men, mistakes, the glare of the spotlight—and her hopes for the future.”

 

Check out quotes from Taylor Swift’s interview below and pick up the March issue (on newsstands February 11, 2014) to read the full story: 

 

Taylor on the evolution of her albums:

“I’m not trying to shed my skin. I’m trying to be a new version of the person I’ve been my whole life. That’s what’s held my fans and me together. For a group of millions, it’s odd how close I feel to them.”

Taylor on how she balances pushing the envelope and 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.”

 

 

 

Taylor on choosing not to read certain articles:

“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.”

 

Taylor on why you should never yell in a relationship:

“Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you’re crazy.”

Taylor on doing the “freeze-out” when dating:

“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.”
