The B&T office’s all-time favourite ‘it’ girl, Tay Tay, is proving she’s doing more magazine covers than singing of late starring on the latest cover of US men’s fashion magazine GQ and follows on from a recent outing for Vogue Australia.
The GQ shoot and accompanying article describe the 25 year old as the most important thing in contemporary music on the planet (alongside Kayne and Beyonce). “There is no demographic she does not tap into, which is obviously rare” and “she has never gratuitously sexualized her image and seems pathologically averse to controversy” the article reads.
However, world domination has apparently come at a cost. In the interview, Swift reveals some nasty, friendless teen years and says she was the victim of some bitchiness bordering on bullying.
But not any more: “I’m around people so much. Massive amounts of people. I do a meet-and-greet every night on the tour, and it’s 150 people. Before that, it’s a radio meet-and-greet with 40 people. After the show, it’s 30 or 40 more people. So then when I go home and turn on the TV, and I’ve got Monica and Chandler and Ross and Rachel and Phoebe and Joey on a Friends marathon, I don’t feel lonely. I’ve just been onstage for two hours, talking to 60,000 people about my feelings. That’s so much social stimulation. When I get home, there is not one part of me that wishes I was around other people,” she said.
