Taylor Swift might be on top of the world following the release of her album 1989, but the massive success doesn't always give her peace of mind. "I worry about everything all the time," she said in a wide-ranging interview with UK's The Telegraph. "We could do our entire interview me telling you how many things I've worried about since breakfast." One of those things is being photographed with guys. Reflecting on being seen with singer Hozier recently, Taylor said, "I just got so freaked out that people were going to say I was dating him."
While Taylor was candid about her fear of the rumor mill, there are certain topics she said she just won't discuss, including her rumored feud with Katy Perry, to whom she refers as "her" in one of the most interesting parts of the piece. "I'm not giving them anything to write about," she said while reportedly smiling. "I'm not walking up the street with boys. I'm not stumbling out of clubs drunk. But I'm never going to talk about her in my interview. It's not going to happen."
Although Taylor has remained mum about Katy following speculation that she suggested they were "straight-up enemies" in a telling Rolling Stone interview last year, Katy recently addressed the topic in a Billboard story leading up to her Super Bowl performance. "If somebody is trying to defame my character, you're going to hear about it," Katy said. Keep reading to find out what's been on Taylor's mind lately, and then get a refresher on her feuds, friendships, and flames.
- On her life in five years: "I'll be 30 [and] I'll probably still be single, let's be honest. No one's going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. Like, 'Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!' I don't know what's going to happen if I'm ever content in a relationship — no idea how that's going to work."
- On the connection she has with her fans: "My fans make fun of me — it's really cool. They have all these GIFs of me making an idiot of myself or tripping and falling on stage. They bring humor back into it for me. I get too serious sometimes — you can probably tell — and they bring me back to like, 'OK, I'm not really doing anything that difficult. I just need to calm down.'"
- On her reputation: "And it's not real if someone appears to never have any issues with anyone. I have my friends, I have enemies. I have bad days when I don't want to go to a photo shoot, but I'm not going to show up four hours late; I'm going to be there on time. I'm not nice all the time, but I try not to be carelessly rude to people who don't deserve it."
