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.'"
