Taylor Swift talks about stripping her down songs, not herself
It’s hard to find any fault with pop-princess Taylor Swift, the Grammy-winning artist gave more money to charity than any other celebrity in 2013 and on the outside it seems like she truly wants to sing and perform forever.
Swift recently took the cover of Glamour magazine, where she talked about the desire to be nude, or to show off her body by saying, “I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off.” Swift was on the March cover, set to hit stands next week on Feb. 11.
The pop-star talked about stripping down, in an industry that seems to always reward it, Swift explains what it really mean to expose yourself by saying, “For me, ‘risky’ is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”
Swift has often been the subject of headlines and jokes, mostly for her revealing songs of past-romances. That being said, whatever Swift is choosing to do, it’s working. The latest album “Red” was No. 1 in more than 50 countries, she collects Grammys like most people collect Subway coupons and she has a million-plus fan base supporting her every move. Even if Swift does use relationships to fuel her work, don’t think that’s the ultimate goal. “I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game,” then apparently you’re kicked to the curb and you can expect a new single next year. Swift told the magazine, “And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.”
