Taylor Swift, who features on the cover of British Vogue’s new November edition, made some interesting revelations about herself, especially when it came to the reason why she’s single and not even dating at the moment.
Swift opened up to the publication about her personal life, which is a brave move in itself, and spoke about how in actual fact dating is the furthest thing from her life.
“Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is. I don’t know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can’t protect his girlfriend because that’s the life she chose. I just don’t see how it could work, so I don’t think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself.”
Even though it seems Taylor Swift is officially “off the market” right now, the 24-year-old said she hasn’t given up on love, adding that she just doesn’t see herself getting serious with a man right now, “They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don’t think they want what comes with it,” she said.
She spoke about the importance of feeling empowered and about how important it is to just be yourself in life, no matter what other people think or say.
“The one thing I wish these girls that come to my shows knew is that they are exactly where I was when I was a teenager. I had no idea who I was! I was going through all these phases. I was trying on different outfits and all these different personalities, trying to figure out what category I fit into, and which clique I would be accepted in. But if you just keep doing ‘you’, and being who you are and doing what feels natural to you, maybe you won’t find a place where you fit in for a very long time, but you eventually will.”
And this isn’t the first time Taylor Swift has gone public about her wish that her private life be kept private. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Swift spoke about how she doesn’t appreciate her personal life being in the media all the time.
“I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime, and I’m just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore…I don’t like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at awards shows. I don’t like it when headlines read ‘Careful, Bro, She’ll Write a Song About You,’ because it trivializes my work.”
