Singer Taylor Swift has been a pop sensation with her music and number 1 hits. Recently, Taylor was featured on the cover for the organization’s weekly magazine called The Guide which comes out every Saturday. Not only is she featured on the cover but inside the magazine, we also find an interview with Taylor where she talks about her music, her career and some of the hardships of being a celebrity.
In terms of her music, Taylor said the following:
“I really resent the idea that if a woman writes about her feelings, she has too many feelings. And I really resent the ‘Be careful, buddy, she’s going to write a song about you’ angle, because it trivialises what I do. It makes it seem like creating art is something you do as a cheap weapon rather than an artistic process. They can say whatever they want about my personal life because I know what my personal life is, and it involves a lot of TV and cats and girlfriends. But I don’t like it when they start to make cheap shots at my songwriting. Because there’s no joke to be made there.”
In regards to all the attention Taylor receives from the media and all the haters, she said:
“In the last couple of years I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that anyone can say anything about me and call TMZ or Radar Online or something, and it will be an international headline. You can either go crazy and let it make you bitter and make you not trust people, and become really secluded or rebellious against the whole system. Or you can just shake it off and figure that as long as you’re having more fun than anyone else, what does it matter what anyone else thinks? Because I’ve wanted this life since I was a kid.”
