Sophie Monk and Merrick Watts chat to Taylor Swift about people commenting on who she writes about in her songs
People say all the time, “you need to spend some time to yourself, and figure out who you are”, and I never really understood it until it happened to me. And I woke up one day, and I just realized, I’m in New York because I want to be in New York. I cut my hair short because I wanted to. I made a pop album because I wanted to.
Are we out of the woods yet?
'Welcome to New York' by taylorswift will be available on @itunesmusic Monday night at around 11:59pm EST
“When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable, now in retrospect I think I need to let you know those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things.” ― Taylor Swift
I’ve been listening to a lot of late 80s pop. I love how bold it was. It was a time of limitless potential,bright colors, bold choices, rebellion.
"I don’t know if I’ll have kids. It’s impossible not to picture certain scenarios and how you would try to convince them that they have a normal life when, inevitably, there will be strange men pointing giant cameras at them from the time they are babies. I’m too young to get married. Not agewise, but I know myself, so why try to meet someone right now when I know I’m too young to do something serious?"

"I really like my life right now, I have friends around me all the time. I’ve started painting more. I’ve been working out a lot. I’ve started to really take pride in being strong. I love the album I made. I love that I moved to New York. So in terms of being happy, I’ve never been closer to that.”
