Taylor Swift graces the cover of UK’s InStyle magazine this month, and she is revealing more than her signature smile and golden locks.
The Red singer spoke candidly on worrying about making decisions, ending up alone and friendships. As one of very few international sensations, Swift admits to worrying about falling in the pitfalls of Hollywood youth.
"What I worry about is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centered, vain human being," she tells the magazine as quoted by E! News. “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 complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody."
Swift’s worries are not without merit. Many stars experienced public setbacks around her age—Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton to name a few. Luckily Swift has good friends like Selena Gomez and a solid support system to keep her grounded.
She continues, “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's my fear. And that's why I live my life the way I live my life because I'd so much rather feel everything than end up like that."
The life Swift has chosen for herself includes multi-platinum albums, complete creative control of her career and a penchant for penning powerful country-pop confections. However, Swift is the first to admit she does not exactly know where her life is headed.
"I've thought that I did have a dream scenario before but it turns out that I change my mind and that essentially in your 20s all the puzzle pieces of your life are thrown up in the air," she explains, then saying, "and they just fall into whatever place and I think that's healthy."
However, what stays constant in Swift’s life are her girlfriends like Gomez. She added, "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 slide show of people I've apparently dated on the Internet."
Taylor Swift kicks off her highly-anticipated Red Tour March 13.
