Taylor was interviewed by Irish’s Independent. She talks about the lyrics on 1989, her life and much more. Read the full interview below!
She even told him she felt talking to him was like talking to herself. Here, in our exclusive interview, she reveals her innermost fears and doubts; how she had her heart ‘ripped out’ by the end of her relationship with heart-throb Jake Gyllenhaal; why she always picks the wrong men (albeit famous ones such as Harry Styles); how she uses her lyrics to process the emotions of a break-up – and why she will only run out of having break-ups to write about ‘if I stop having break-ups’
To interview her is to pay a state visit. You know you’re dealing with a star of astronomical proportions when the record company sends a car to pick you up at the airport. And there is someone from her management team to bring you to a waiting room on the 10th floor of a grand hotel with a courtyard filled with flashy cars straight out of a James Bond movie.
What follows is almost ritualistic. You sign a confidentiality agreement form. Then, after a while, someone comes to take you to a suite where you are given an iPod. Then another person hands you earphones and presses play so that, amid much secrecy, you get to hear three songs from the star’s new album, called 1989, after the year of her birth.
