Taylor Swift  is on the cover of July's Marie Claire , which will be available nationwide on June 8. The singer is in the midst of touring the country and prepping for an upcoming marathon 13-hour meet and greet . It's all in a month's work for the star, who opened up to the magazine about being a planner, as well as a natural writer and singer. She said :
- On working things out through writing: "Everyone in my life knows whenever something happens, the only way it's going to be over and finished and put to bed is if it's written about."
- On being a planner: "I think about my next move 10 steps ahead. I'm always planning three awards shows ahead. For me, planning is a productive way of stressing out about your life."
- On being a born singer "I have been singing randomly, obsessively, obnoxiously for as long as I can remember. . . My parents have videos of me on the beach at, like, 3 going up to people and singing Lion King songs for them. I was literally going from towel to towel, saying, 'Hi, I'm Taylor. I'm going to sing "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" for you now.'"
