Taylor Swift on Breaking Up, Male Fans, and Her Cat

With the release of her fourth album, Red, 22-year-old Swift sounds off on love and feminism.

Does it weird you out that I’m a 30-year-old guy who likes your music?
No, that makes me incredibly happy!

Aren’t your fans mostly female?
It’s been pretty even, actually, in the last year or so. Lots of guys in the audience, which is good to see.

You started out as a country star, but now you’re sounding more pop.
When I went in to make this record, I recorded the songs over a two-year period. Every time I would come up with a new song that sounded different or unique or new, I knew we were getting closer. What I wanted was an album that explored the edges and broke new ground. One of my big fears is people saying my songs are all starting to sound the same.

Do you think your music empowers women?
I wrote a song called “Mean” about a critic who hated me. I put it out, and all of a sudden, it became an anthem against bullies in school.
