Taylor Swift Covers Rolling Stone, Talks Love, Kanye, and Fans
Taylor Swift opens up about being a cougar, music, and Kanye as Rolling Stone’s November cover story.
Decked out in a letterman jacket, her long legs aren’t the only thing Swift is baring in Rolling Stone. With her fourth studio album, Red, dropping October 22nd, Swift is gearing up by talking about her music, but of course she also had to address her current beau, Conor Kennedy and that whole VMA incident with Kanye that happened years ago.
Swift has had a fascination with the Kennedy family for a long time, but did she take her fandom to an extreme by going out and dating one? She says no, but that’s a little weird if you ask us…The one thing she was all laughs about when it came to her relationship was the four year difference between the two. She’s 22 and Conor’s barely legal at 18. She said she must’ve gotten the cougar thing from her gal pal Selena Gomez, who’s is of course dating Justin Bieber.
The girl who has hit after hit about breakups also noted her thoughts on love in general.
“The way I look at love is you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget about what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the-world mentality. You have to make it work by prioritizing it, and by falling in love really fast, without thinking too hard. If I think too hard about a relationship I’ll talk myself out of it. …I have rules for a lot of areas of my life. Love is not going to be one of them.”
Something she might not love, but can’t forget? When Kanye West interrupted her VMA speech three years ago. She keeps a picture from that night in her Nashville apartment and says it helped her “realize nothing is gonna go exactly the way you plan it to. Just because you have a good plan, doesn’t mean that’s what’s gonna happen.”
Lastly, she wouldn’t be anywhere without her bad relationships and oh yes, her fans, which she has total faith in:
“In the beginning, when there would be a tiny news story about something that wasn’t true, I thought that meant my fans weren’t gonna show up to my next concert. But now, knock on wood… I feel like my fans have my back and I have theirs.”
