Taylor Swift Covers GQ For First Time
Taylor Swift has been on a lot of magazine covers over the course of her record-breaking career. Now GQ can be added to the ever-growing list. Check out the large photo below!
On Thursday, the magazine revealed Swift graces the cover of its November issue, the first time she’s appeared on a GQ cover. The cover line announces, “Taylor Swift Rules The World And We Are Her Loyal Subjects.” Indeed, famed writer Chuck Klosterman makes the case for why it’s impossible to be a fan of music but not a fan of Swift.
“If you don’t take Swift seriously, you don’t take contemporary music seriously… There’s simply no antecedent for this kind of career: a cross-genre, youth-oriented, critically acclaimed colossus based entirely on the intuitive songwriting merits of a single female artist,” says Klosterman. “It’s as if mid-period Garth Brooks was also early Liz Phair, minus the hat and the swearing. As a phenomenon, it’s absolutely new.”
Swift’s cover story (and Malibu beachside photo shoot) won’t be released until next week, but GQ promises it’s “Tay-tanic.” In fact, the experience apparently included the superstar “giving an intense, wide-ranging, Kanye West-inclusive interview while dodging the paparazzi and, at one point, taking a surprise call from one of the very few humans who’s as famous as she is.” Who might that be?
