Taylor Swift will be featured on the Feb. 2012 cover of Vogue with a Mario Testino photo spread and in-depth interview on her 22 years of life lessons and experiences. The article, titled “Taylor Swift: The Single Life,” is currently posted on the Vogue website. The issue hits stands Jan. 24.
The three-time Grammy nominee reveals how her ‘awkward’ years influenced her inner reliance and shares the moment she came to embrace her individuality. Swift confides about the pressure to stay thin, shares insightful ‘red flag’ advice from her storied dating life and expresses anxieties about her longevity in the business.
“I fret about the future,” Swift told Vogue writer Jonathan Van Meter for the feature. “What my next move should be. What the move after that should be. How I am going to sustain this. How do I evolve. I get so ahead of myself. I’m like, ‘What am I going to be doing at 30?’ But there’s no way to know that! Lately I’ve been focusing on trying to be here. Trying to be who I am, where I am, at the moment. But, you know, I am having a big meeting with my team next week, planning 2013. Which makes it hard!”
The article also covers Swift’s Nashville and California residences, her parents’ role in her life and career and concludes by crediting Kris Kristofferson with the career she envies. “He is so versatile and so appreciated for all of the things that he has done. The fact that he shines in songwriting, shines in his solo career, shines in movies and does it all so tastefully…he’s just one of those people who has been in this business for years but you can tell it hasn’t chewed him up and spit him out. He just seemed like the human embodiment of gratitude. Sometimes you see these people who are just so—God—so affected by all of it, where ambition has taken precedence over happiness. But when I meet people who really embody this serenity of knowing that they have had an amazing life—James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Ethel Kennedy. They just seem to be effervescent.”
