Taylor Swift for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine
Tay looks like the photographer just told her she’s fat or something:
Taylor Swift covers the December 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Paola Kudacki and styled by Beth Fenton.
Don’t cry, Tay! Write a song about how mean photographers are!
On what she wears: “I’m in a predicament where I can’t wear a dress twice or else it’s pointed out in magazines. So unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time. There’s just something so feminine about a dress. Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife — which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason — I just really like dresses.”
On dating: “It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up. [Relationships are] the ultimate collaboration, [but sometimes] it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.”
On relationships as a source of inspiration for her music: “Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction. Despite all of that and how unpleasant it is, as a writer you get a lot from it. It’s a crazy justification system. You know that guy you really wish you could erase from your memory? But then the answer is track six, eight, 12, and 13.”
We have … thoughts … on the above quotes, but people tend to get all rage-y when we say not-nice things about her, so we’ll leave the discussion of them up to the Bitter Kittens.
