Taylor Swift is trying a new relationship with someone very familiar… herself. The country singer is taking a break from dating A- list hunks to focusing more on cranking out some catchy hits and learning more about herself.
Swift’s been keeping herself busy from leaking bits and pieces of her album to gracing the cover of People magazine’s latest October issue. In honor of the 40th anniversary of the publication, Swift rocks a blast from the past looks of the first cover issue; mimicking Mia Farrow’s seductive pearls and Gatsbyesque white get up.
Now that the 24 year old has changed up her scene by moving to a penthouse in New York City, her priorities have also changed too. In an interview with People magazine, the “Shake It Off” singer says that her differences include “Being on my own, prioritizing my girlfriends, my family and my music above everything else and trying things I never thought I’d try.”
If trying new things meant creating a whole album of pop songs, then Swift is definitely staying on track with her newly found priorities. Swift’s recent hit “Shake It Off” is now number two on the Billboard charts after Megan Trainor’s “All About That Base” this month. Her recent released song “Out of the Wood” may also take a spot on the charts. Speculations from fans and listeners support the idea that the new single is about her previous relationship with singer Harry Styles. The song is a collaboration with Jack Antonoff, guitarist for the band Fun. Swift describes how the song talks about uncertain relationships. “It’s a relationship where you never feel like you’re standing on solid ground” she says to Billboard. “That kind of feeling brings on excitement but also extreme anxiety and kind of a frantic feeling of wondering.”
No word has come from the One Direction member and according to Hollywood Life, there won’t be word any time soon. “Harry is not bothered by yet another song about him,” says a source to the publication. “Taylor is beyond yesterday’s news and he really doesn’t want to have anything to do with her, he has moved on and doesn’t think about her at all.”
In the meantime, T-Swift is still teasing her fans with snippets of her soon to be released album while also sharing her latest adventures with her cat Olivia Benson. The “You Belong to Me” singer is continuously loving the single life and preaching the benefits to her girlfriends including Selena Gomez. Gomez told Ellen DeGeneres on her show how Swift tries to convince Gomez to move to New York. “She’s been begging me every time we get on the phone to move to New York, ‘cause it’s been a really good thing for her.” Gomez also joked said “She wants to kidnap me.”
T-Swift’s Pop project 1989 will be released near the end of the month on October 27th.
What Did We Learn
As much as we want to believe that boys (or men, depending on your age) are the world, they're not. For years, Swift has made millions off of her heartbreaks and past interests, but now it's time for a change. Now at the age of 24, she's realized there's more to life, and you should too. Forget about the every day need to have a man by your side and get to know who you are. Life after college changes you, trust us on this, but that doesn't mean you can't cuddle up with yourself and watch a hockey game or indulge in 'Say Yes To The Dress,' (#nojudgment). As an dult, you need to know who you are and what you want, and how you want it. Take TSwift's advice - know yourself.
