Taylor Swift Talks Touring, Friends, & Relationships

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recently took time from her busy touring schedule (and movie shoot) to chat with the Patriot Ledger about everything going on in her busy life. Here’s what she had to say…

On her success: “Well, it’s really fun. I wanted this, since the time I was a little girl. I’ve always just wished that maybe someday people would care about the words that I wrote. I’m so lucky that my songs are basically my diary put to music. I’m so lucky that I get to write my own music and write my own stories, so every single time I look down in the audience and I see somebody singing the words back to me, it makes it all worth it.”

On touring with her BFF, Kellie Pickler: “We are just absolutely such close friends and almost like sisters at this point. She and I will sit in the dressing room till 2 or 3 a.m. just talking and painting our nails. It’s so much fun to just have another person out on tour with you that you know you’re so close with and you’ve known for a really long time, to the point where you really just feel like they’re family.”

On dating someone in the public eye: “When I’m thinking about going on a date with some guy or considering liking him, it really doesn’t matter what they do or how that affects my career. … When you strategize a relationship too much, like, 'We’re not gonna be public about it, and we’re gonna say this in interviews,’ when you think it all out, I think that complicates the relationship and I think that’s unfair for the relationship. I don’t look for boyfriends, I don’t really scour the awards shows for who I’m going to date (laughs), but I think love happens when you’re not looking for it, and when it happens, I’m not going to be the one to overthink it.”
