Taylor Swift’s career keeps going up and up and up! It doesn’t seem like it will ever stop until she has passed every single top artists! Glamour Magazine took the time to sit down with Taylor and talk to her about her career, her love life, her friends and her family and we want to share some of her amazing quotes with you.
Ever wonder what a typical day is like when Taylor is on tour? Currently she is on her “Fearless” Tour and it is going amazing! She says, “On any given day I do five or six different interviews. If we are somewhere really pretty, I’ll try to experience the place I’m in. Today I’m going to head to the beach. My meet and greet schedule starts at 5:00 P.M. The show starts at 8:00 P.M. Then, I’ll do a mass meet and greet with people who won a radio contest, or who we found in the nosebleed section.” Aww, that is so sweet of her!
It also turns out that Taylor is a workaholic. She gets really restless and bored if she hasn’t worked for a little over a day – yikes!
About dating Taylor says, “I don’t date a lot. The other day I was in my dressing room with one of my closest friends, [American Idol alum] Kellie Pickler, who is also my opening act, and she said something really interesting to me: ‘We can only give someone what’s left over.’ She does the same thing I do, so she knows what it’s like to do interviews all day and give your heart and soul on stage every night. After all of that is taken, we can only give someone what’s left. So it’s hard.”
And if Taylor does date someone, what type of relationship is it going to be? She says, “It’s always going to be long-distance, even if I date the boy who lives next door to me in Nashville. I’ll be flying to see him and flying him places to see me. It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot of scheduling in my life. Of course, if I met somebody who was worth it, I would probably stop thinking that way!”
What about Taylor’s family? She says, “My mom quit working when I was four, so she was always around, and my dad is just hilarious—you’ll meet him. [I later found Swift’s father riding a Segway scooter around the arena parking lot, handing out guitar picks that bore his daughter’s image.] I grew up on a Christmas tree farm with all this space to run around, and the [freedom] to be a crazy kid with tangled hair.”
And where in the world does Taylor see herself years down the line after she has accomplished so much at such a young age? She answers, “As far as my career goes, I hope I’m still touring. I’d love to always be present in music, writing songs, but I’m not the kind of person who will hang around if I become irrelevant. I’ll bow out gracefully, raise my kids and have a garden. And I’m going to let my hair go gray when I’m older—I don’t need to be blond when I’m 60!”
