Here’s Taylor Swift on the cover of this month’s Cosmopolitan magazine! I’m not sure if I like it or not- it’s definitely a different look for Tay Tay, but it seems a little sexified but also deer-in-the-headlights..hmmm..
The interview, however, I’m on board with. She talks love, her new (and VERY popular album, Red) and life!
What lyrics resonate you off of your new album? I have a chalkboard in my house in L.A., and every week, I’ve been writing a new lyric on it from the record just to figure out which ones pop out to me, which seem most important. There’s a song that’s the first track on the record, and it says, “Love is a ruthless game unless you play it good and right.” That’s been my whole philosophy on love this whole time anyway.
How do you feel about playing “hard to get?”:I think a lot of times when you meet someone you feel like you need to appear like you’re not interested in them so that they’ll be more interested in you. But what happens when you start showing him that you actually like him? What’s he gonna do then? Play the tape forward; how do you keep a guy like that? I don’t want to sign up for that.
What are other moves you don’t tolerate? I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing; it’s a common-sense thing. If I was in that situation, if I were them, would I be doing this to me? Would I ever do this to them? If the answer is no, then they’re not treating me fairly. I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.
Nicely put, Ms. Swift! For more of Taylor’s exclusive interview with Cosmopolitan pick up the new issue on newsstands Nov. 6th!
