My favorite thing in life is writing about life, specifically the parts of life concerning love. Because, as far as I'm concerned, love is absolutely everything.
When you say, 'I spent my summers at the Jersey Shore,' people always say, 'Oh, really?' They think of the TV show. So I just say, 'A cute little harbor town in New Jersey.'
When I get to tell a story through music videos or TV, it's all about finding the story that I want to tell, so I'm definitely open to acting roles, it just depends on the story.
As soon as I accomplish one goal, I replace it with another one. I try not to get too far ahead of myself. I just say to myself, 'All right, well, I'd like to headline a tour,' and then when I get there, we'll see what my next goal is.
You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people. Taylor Swif
I like things you can touch and things you can keep, because every bit of communication we have is ephemeral in nature. You can just delete an e-mail and it's like it was never there.
I didn't want to just be another girl singer. I wanted there to be something that set me apart.
I approach love differently now that I know it's hard for it to work out.
You are the only one who gets to decide what you will be remembered for.
In high school, I used to think it was like sooooo cool if a guy had an awesome car. Now none of that matters. These days I look for character and honesty and trust.
Words, how little they mean when they are too late.
Just being a human being, Iâ€™ve realized that before every big problem you create for yourself, before every huge mess you have to clean up, there was a crucial moment where you couldâ€™ve just said no.
I've always written songs the same way. You learn different tricks - you learn craft, you learn structure, all that - as you go.
I let people fill in the blanks on their own. If they want to think about their ex, that's fine. If they want to think about maybe who one of my exes is, then that's fine. And it might not be right, because I'm the only one who knows what these songs are really about. It's the one shred of privacy I
I like touring extensively because I think the more hours you spend onstage, the more you know who you are onstage.
I don't have any interest in going out to clubs. I love people, and I love socializing, I just don't have any interest in being drunk.
Music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment.
Fans are my favorite thing in the world. I've never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line's always been really blurred for me. I'll hang out with them after the show. I'll hang out with them before the show. If I see them in the mall, I'll sta
It's true that I've never had a burning desire to rebel against my parents.
And, honestly, if somebody wants to criticize me for not being a trainwreck, that's fine with me!
Some days I totally appreciate everything that's happening to me, and some days I feel everyone's waiting for me to mess up.
It's pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles. Taylor S
If I could go back I wouldn't change anything. If I was popular I would have never left my bubble. I wouldn't have ever tired to do anything different. I would have never become happy.
I love to write honest songs that name real people, then get up onstage and live out those emotions in front of 15,000 people.
I have this really high priority on happiness and finding something to be happy about.
When I'm in my 50s, I kind of think I'll want to be in a garden.
My imagination is a twisted place. Taylor S
You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things; either way, you're obsessed with yourself, and I'm not - you can become unhinged so easily.
I discover poetry when I was in elementary school and I was so fascinated by it. Because I realised if you get the right amount of syllables and the right amount of words, in the right rhyme scheme and you put it all together. You make words just bounce of a page.
Music can take you back in time to that place when you first fell in love and really haunt you.
