Taylor Swift Opens Up About Bleeding ‘Red,’ Living Under a Magnifying Glass + Still Growing Up One Year at a Time
Taylor Swift is tired and a little glassy-eyed from a full day of interviews by the time we sit down to chat, but still she’s warm, kind and, well, genuine. Just like she seems. We’re like two girls in a coffee shop, even though we’re surrounded by bright lights, cameramen, assistants, label reps — you name it. She looks me in the eye, smiles, laughs and even compliments my dress, because despite being one of the biggest superstars on the planet, at 22 years old, Swift is still just a girl. A humble and surprisingly normal girl, who has crushes, falls in love, gets her heart broken… and writes No. 1 songs about it.
