Taylor Swift Reveals Why She Doesn't Need to Strip Down for Attention in Glamour March 2014
She is part of a sexually-driven industry, but Taylor Swift admits that taking off her clothes isn't the most revealing thing she can do.
In the March 2014 issue of Glamour magazine, the "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker opens up about her fellow musicians stripping down for attention and discusses how she avoids online negativity.
Check out a few highlights from Miss Swift's Q&A session below. For more, be sure to visit Glamour!
On her refusal to read tabloids:
"I know when not to read an article. Is it going to help my day? Is it important for my life? If the answer is no, then I just don't click... I'm careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don't have the option of having thick skin. As a writer you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet every single thing about you. If you're me."
On her evolving albums:
"I'm not trying to shed my skin. I'm trying to be a new version of the person I've been my whole life. That's what's held my fans and me together. For a group of millions, it's odd how close I feel to them."
On her influence to younger fans:
"I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have. For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off."
On her relationship advice:
"I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it's a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just away from the table."
