Taylor Swift to ‘InStyle UK:’ “I Don’t Wanna End Up Awful & Alone”
We’ve seen a lot of Taylor Swift interviews in our time, and all of them — all… of… them… touch upon the same topic at least once: boys. Now, that’s not her fault; that just so happens to be the choice topic of discussion from the interviewers. Yet, somehow, each time a new quote comes out about the subject of guys, we’re still left with our mouths open in a “Did she really just say that?” fashion. Case in point, her latest cover interview with InStyle UK.
Before really delving into boys, she discusses music, saying: “I first started writing songs because I didn’t really have anyone else to talk to. As sad as that sounds, I was going through this really hard time at school where I didn’t have any friends. Song writing for me just started out as therapy. When you’re dealing with something like loneliness or confusion or rejection or frustration, those emotions are so jumbled up in your head. For me, the only way to condense them down into one thing is to write a three-and-a-half minute song about it.”
Okay, here it comes: “I’m a girls’ girl. I have guy friends but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them and they’ll end up in a slideshow of people I’ve apparently dated on the Internet… I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody. The typical Hollywood sad cliché of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone.”
That is deep. And incredibly detailed. (Did she think of this scenario before the interview?) For more of her spread, pick up the latest issue of InStyle UK. What do you think of Tay’s latest i-view?
