Taylor Swift used her appearance in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine to launch a silly attack against Amy Poehler and Tina Fey for the good-natured ribbing they gave her during the 2013 Golden Globe Awards back in January (which prompted amazingly brilliant responses from both Amy and Tina). Today we learn that she uses her appearance in the new issue of British In Style magazine to open up about her personal fears. She tells the mag that she worries about becoming a “self-centered, vain human being”. She also fears being “awful and intolerable … Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad.” Huh. Someone deffo has some insecurities going on, don’t they? Click below to see Taylor on the cover of British In Style, read some excerpts from her coverstory interview and watch video from her photoshoot.
At the relatively tender age of 23, Taylor Swift is looking forward to long, successful career in the music industry. However, the country-pop singer is only too aware of the pitfalls of fame and fears ending up with a tiny circle of friends with hardly anyone she can trust. Speaking in the April issue of InStyle UK magazine, the blonde admits she worries she will end up alone with no friends or people to care about her. She explained: ‘What I worry about is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centred, vain human being. My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody. The typical Hollywood sad cliché of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone. That’s my fear. And that’s why I live my life the way I live my life because I’d so much rather feel everything than end up like that.’
Girl. For someone who fears turning into an “awful and intolerable” person, she really should think twice about launching attacks against ladies who are far more talented and much more liked than she is. Just a bit of advice. Taylor goes on to discuss her hopes for her future life:
At only 23, Taylor is yet to find lasting love, so starting a family is currently far from her mind. When asked if she would like to start a family, she mused: ‘I think so but I’m not sure. Like, I don’t even have a master plan. I’ve thought that I did have a dream scenario before but it turns out that I change my mind and that essentially in your 20s all the puzzle pieces of your life are thrown up in the air and they just fall into whatever place and I think that’s healthy.’
She goes on to explain that despite having guy friends, she is a “girls’ girl”:
‘I’m a girls’ girl. I have guy friends but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them and they’ll end up in a slideshow of people I’ve apparently dated on the internet. I mean, there’s all kinds of complicated things with having guys as friends. If they have a girlfriend who doesn’t like you or things like that. So I have like two or three guy friends. A select few. But I have like 20-25 really good girlfriends.’
HMMM, it sounds really hard being Taylor Swift. I’m amazed she’s able to manage it. In case you’re interested, In Style has released a behind the scenes video from Taylor‘s photoshoot … which you can check out here:
I mean, I get that she was prolly going for sympathy with this interview but, IMHO, it doesn’t come across as sympathetic … but maybe that’s just me. What do y’all think of Taylor‘s appearance in this issue of In Style magazine? Does it work for you?
