Taylor Swift used to be afraid of working hard to maintain her image, but doesn’t really care anymore because she doesn’t feel that her fame will disappear if she has an off night.
In a new interview, she revealed, “One thing I’ve gotten a little better at is this idea that I could one thing wrong and all of this would completely disappear. Like, all of my work from my entire life, every album I’ve put out in the last ten years, all of it would be wiped from the record and no one would appreciate what I’ve done that’s good. Because you watch celebrity culture, and it happens, you know? Someone says something crazy in an interview or is caught stumbling out of a club drunk too many times when they’re thought to be America’s sweetheart. People can feel betrayed very easily by celebrities. And one thing that used to really scare me a lot is making my fans feel like they don’t know me.”
She went on to say, “I’m 25 now. So if they see me with a glass of wine in my hand, I think that’s okay. They know I have a drink, they’re cool with it, which is one of the really nice things about my fans. They’ve allowed me to grow up in a normal way without having to be this crazy, abnormal, terrified, packaged, plastic America’s sweetheart-type person.”
Swift also said that she doesn’t fall out of bars at any given time because it’s not something that she enjoys. She added, “So I have to be easier on myself about this. Because the reason I don’t stumble out of clubs drunk is because I don’t really like doing that, like on a Wednesday night, you know? So I just have to trust that this isn’t going to disappear.”
