Taylor Swift Appears on Vogue’s February Cover

Taylor Swift graces the cover of the February Vogue (available January 24), and inside the magazine the 22-year-old songstress has plenty to share in an interview with Contributing Editor Jonathan Van Meter. Here are a few select quotes.

When Swift is asked about growing up:

“So… middle school? Awkward. Having a hobby that’s different from everyone else’s? Awkward. Singing the national anthem on weekends instead of going to sleepovers? More awkward. Braces? Awkward. Gain a lot of weight before you hit the growth spurt? Awkward. Frizzy hair, don’t embrace the curls yet? Awkward. Try to straighten it? Awkward!”

That does sound, uh, what’s a word for something that’s difficult to deal with? Ugh, well, anyway. Onward.

Swift on her love life:

“I got nothing going on! I just don’t really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now, and I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that.”

But this is Taylor Swift! She has to be sad about something:

“There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak. And that will turn out to be what the next album is about.”

Oh good! Can’t wait.
