Back of Taylor Swift Talks to Marie Claire About Being Born to Sing 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.'" View 2 Photos › Photo 1 Photo 2 Comments kellylouise 7 years Not a fan of her (singing) career, but I do agree with sham. I loved the little anecdote of her as a 3-year-old. I can just picture that. Wish we could all be as shameless as we were as kids sometimes. sham28 7 years I personally don't understand how anyone can say anything negative about her, she seems like such a nice kid and she has been more graceful in the spotlight than the majority of young stars. I'm not going to hate on her because she's successful and answers questions right. Jeez. joriss 7 years maybe she sing to be a model. Who knows? Louie 7 years I'm not a fan of her music at all, but I think she's a fairly good role model too. And her hair looks so much better like it is on the cover and not in those horrible too-contrived waves she always wears. Jessiebanana 7 years I may not like her and her poor excuse for music, but home girl is model stunning, her face is a bit different, but I think that adds to the interest. anapattz 7 years she looks beautiful!
