Taylor Swift Talks Selena “Feud,” Not Being in Love & 6 Other Revealing Rolling Stone Outtakes
Taylor Swift gave a tell-all interview for her Rolling Stone cover story and there was just too much to fit into one article!
A second article has been posted titled “22 Things You Learn Hanging Out With Taylor Swift” and writer Josh Eells shares 22 things he learned about the starlet.
We’re not going to post all 22, but we will share some of our favorites. You can read the whole list here.
1. She’s not feuding with Selena Gomez.
“People think they have my relationships all mapped out. There were all these blogs, like, ‘Are they feuding? Are they fighting?’ Meanwhile Selena and I would be on the phone that night, laughing about it. We let them have that one.”
2. When she’s drunk on wine, she cries over Joni Mitchell.
“When I first started drinking — when I was like 21 — I used to cry about Joni Mitchell all the time after a few glasses of wine,” Swift says. “All my friends would know, once I started crying about Joni Mitchell, it was time for me to go to bed.”
3. She’s never been in love.
“Looking back? Not real love. Not the kind that lasts. I think that’s still ahead of me — which is really exciting.”
4. On how she looks at love now.
“I think the way I used to approach relationships was very idealistic. I used to go into them thinking, ‘Maybe this is the one — we’ll get married and have a family, this could be forever.’ Whereas now I go in thinking, ‘How long do we have on the clock — before something comes along and puts a wrench in it, or your publicist calls and says this isn’t a good idea?'”
5. She’d rather stay at home at watch Titanic than go clubbing.
“We’re both a little bit like 90-year-olds,” says Lena Dunham. “If we’re feeling really crazy, I can get her to go to a furniture store.”
6. She can do the splits.
“I was the kid in elementary school who could never do them so it was a big goal of mine.” In order to pull it off, she spent four months stretching every single day. “It was really hard and painful,” she says. “No one could understand why it was so important to me.” But in the end, it was all worth it. As she says: “Take that, elementary school insecurities.”
7. If you see her, don’t be afraid to ask for a picture.
“I’m totally cool with human interaction. I’m not scared of strangers. I don’t walk around with bags over my head.” All she asks is that you come up and ask, instead of trying for a sneak pic. “Everyone always says the same thing when they get called out: ‘I was not!'” she laughs. “But it’s like, yeah, you definitely were! As a human being who’s been dealing with this for eight years, I know when someone is taking a picture of me.”
8. She likes to feel like a kid sometimes.
“I think you have to do things that make you geek out like you’re a kid again, or else you just become one of these 45-year-old 24-year-olds,” Swift says. “That’s why I dance like I’m having fun at awards shows, even though no one else is. Because being cool usually means being bored by everything. And I’m not bored by any of this.”
