Taylor Swift has had a nice couple of solid months in the news, thanks to her less successful relationship and break-up with Conor Kennedy, and her more successful studio album, Red. Now, the singer and songwriter has come out to discuss how she’s reconciled the business and creative part of her job, and what success has done to her wardrobe.
The 22-year-old star is on the cover of Harpers Bazaar for the magazine’s December/ January issue. With Red on everyone’s brain, it’s only natural the interview would lean towards Swift's career, which she says has always been totally within the bounds of her—and her financial advisor dad, Scott’s, control.
"When I'm in management meetings when we're deciding my future, those decisions are left up to me. I'm the one who has to go out and fulfill all these obligations, so I should be able to choose which ones I do or not. That's the part of my life where I feel most in control."
Unfortunately, sometimes her life is affected by giant theatrics that are well outside her realm of control. For instance, it’s a pretty obvious fact that Swift enjoys, and maybe even prefers, wearing dresses. It’s no surprise the singer would own “hundreds” of dresses, but her reason for buying so many might surprise you.
“Because I'm in a predicament where I can't wear a dress twice or else it's pointed out in magazines, so, unfortunately, I have to shop for dresses all the time.”
I’m sure it must be a tragedy to wear new clothes all the time. Regardless of any ‘discomfort’ being a celebrity can occasionally bring, Swift is the type of gal who can pour her heart into her writing, and generally finds herself coming out on top, usually with millions of album sales.
