Taylor Swift Talks Fears of Being Alone & Dressing Her Age; Announces Diet Coke Video Series
3:38AM Friday March 15, 2013
Taylor Swift is among the world's most popular stars and has plenty of friends, not to mention potential boyfriends. Even so, she admits that she has a fear that, at the end of the day, she'll end up alone.
Speaking to InStyle UK, Taylor says, "My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself." Specifically, says Taylor, she fears ending up being "awful and intolerable" and "alone," "laying in a marble bathtub by myself...sad, with a glass of wine."
Why would Taylor even imagine she'd end up that way? "Because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody," she tells the magazine.
Taylor doesn't seem to be having that issue right now: it appears as though she's got plenty of folks to hang out with. As she tells In Style UK, "I have, like, 20-25 really good girlfriends." As for male friends, she admits to only having "two or three." "There’s all kinds of complicated things with having guys as friends," she explains. "If they have a girlfriend who doesn’t like you or things like that."
Meanwhile, we've seen Taylor sporting all kinds of interesting outfits on award shows and red carpets lately. She tells Entertainment Tonight that unlike some other stars, she always tries to dress in age-appropriate ensembles.
"I think one of the things that I've always tried to do was kind of age gracefully," she says. "It's what I was trying to do when I was 18: just be 18. Don't try to be 25. Hopefully, when I'm 70 I'm not gonna try to be 25. In my life, I've just tried to be the age that I am. Not try to grow up too fast or anything."
Taylor says because of the way she dresses, people get a little bit over-excited when she shows even a little bit of skin. "I find it hilarious when, like, when we go on an awards show, and I'm wearing shorts for a performance, and the next day the headlines are like, 'Taylor goes edgy for her performance!'" she laughs. "I'm like, 'I'm wearing more clothes than anyone here!'"
Taylor will be letting fans into her world starting March 13: the same day her RED tour kicks off. She's debuting a video series, in partnership with Diet Coke, that features behind-the-scenes content surrounding the tour. It'll be hosted on Diet Coke's Facebook page.
