We all know that Taylor Swift is a fab singer/ songwriter/ all-round person, but in our exclusive new video you can see that she makes a pretty fantastic host as she tries her hand at interviewing emerging artist, Alessia Cara.
In case you didn’t know, Taylor has been championing Alessia for quite some time, and even invited the singer to join her on stage at the Tampa, Florida date of her 1989 world tour, and after they went out in front of thousands and thousands of fans, they took the chance to have a little chinwag.
Thankfully, they had the foresight to film their chat as Taylor quizzes Alessia on everything from music to self-acceptance.
Needless to say, these two have quickly become our ultimate #SquadGoals
Keep an eye out for part two of the interview, which will be debuting tomorrow afternoon!
GQ magazine have released Taylor’s full interview and photo spread from her November cover story! You can take a look at all of the stunning photos in the gallery and read the insightful interview below.
Taylor Swift’s Realest Interview Ever
Weren’t we told they don’t make pop stars this big anymore? Nobody bothered to tell Taylor Swift. Chuck Klosterman interrogates the most popular human alive
“That’s a pap,” she says as we leave the restaurant, pointing toward an anonymous gray car that looks like the floor model in an auto dealership specializing in anonymous gray cars. Her security detail suggests that it’s probably not a paparazzo because there’s no way a paparazzo could find us at such an unglamorous, unassuming establishment. But as with seemingly every other inference she has ever made, Taylor Swift is ultimately proven right. The guy in the gray car is taking her picture. This annoys her, but just barely.
It’s August in Southern California. We crawl into the back of a massive Toyota and start driving to Swift’s West Coast residence, located in a rural enclave of Beverly Hills. The gray car trails us through Franklin Canyon. Swift whips out her phone and starts showing me images from the video shoot for “Wildest Dreams,” including a clip of a giraffe licking her face. She has more photos on her phone than any person I’ve ever met.

Taylor Swift’s dressing room smells like Madonna. It’s thanks to a scented candle presented by the old queen of pop to the new, after Swift commented on the aroma of Madge’s own chambers. “But hers has a hint of eucalyptus mist, too,” says Taylor. “I don’t have the wherewithal to work a steamer – it seems very complex.”
As we speak, a display of alien-looking purple flowers arrives from Mary J Blige. Also delivered this morning was a presentation box of M&M’s imprinted with the images of Swift’s two cats. “I am freaking out about them,” she says, zipping across the room. “I sent pictures to all my friends.” She plops back down on the sofa. “So… that’s my dressing room vibe!”
We’re backstage at the 1989 Tour, the blockbuster arena spectacular in support of Swift’s world-beating album of the same name. This is the fourth of an unprecedented five sold-out nights at LA’s Staples Center, and Swift is loving every minute. “I was thinking about this yesterday and it hit me: I don’t want this tour to end. Ever,” she says. “And that’s never happened to me before.”
Taylor is on the cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair! She looks stunning in the new photo shoot shot by the legendary Mario Testino. In the editorial, she speaks about her friend group, and the letter she wrote to Apple amongst other things. Make sure to look at the photos from the issue in the gallery and watch a behind the scenes video below!
Taylor Swift’s recent missive to Apple—the one that caused the tech behemoth to reverse course, once again demonstrating her world-beating pop power—came after some late-night soul searching, the singer tells Vanity Fair writer Josh Duboff, in the magazine’s September cover story.
“I wrote the letter at around four A.M.,” Swift says. “The contracts had just gone out to my friends, and one of them sent me a screenshot of one of them. I read the term ‘zero percent compensation to rights holders.’ Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and I’ll write a song and I can’t sleep until I finish it, and it was like that with the letter.”
After receiving criticism for a Wall Street Journal op-ed Swift wrote last summer, about Spotify’s free-streaming service, Swift says she worried “people would say, ‘Why won’t she shut up about this?’. . . My fears were that I would be looked at as someone who just whines and rants about this thing that no one else is really ranting about.”
Taylor was on Capital FM’s Capital Breakfast radio show earlier today! She spoke about her excitement to play Hyde Park on Saturday and whether she’ll be bringing out special guests during the show. Listen to the interview by clicking below!
