Taylor Swift: I’m No Longer “Enamored By Romance” — WATCH VIDEO!
Taylor Swift says she’s no longer “enamored by romance.”
In an interview with Fusion, following the premiere of “Shake It Off” and announcement of her new album 1989, the singer notes, “[RED] was a devastating record. It was about dealing with an intense heartbreak,” while “1989” is about “the phase after that where you brush yourself off and you’re ok.”
Swift reveals her priorities have changed now that she is 24. “At this point, I just want to be with my friends and I want to make music and I want to play shows,” she says. “I want travel the world and I want to define my life on my own terms. That’s my list of priorities now, which is different than it was a couple of years ago.”
The pop star also adds that she doesn’t want her new song “Shake It Off” to be about her critics. “I want [this song] to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in the 11th grade because she thinks her hair looks stupid, and then that girl goes and cries in the bathroom because of it,” explains Swift. “These are the things that we go through in every stage of our life.”
Thankfully, says Swift, she has good friends to help through these experiences.
