Looking Back Now, Taylor Swift Wouldn't Give Her Younger Self Any Advice
Taylor Swift has had one heck of a career these past 10 years, and now she's being honored by Billboard for her achievements. The "Lover" singer is set to receive the first-ever woman of the decade award at the 2019 Women in Music Event on Dec. 12. Ahead of the big event, Taylor appears on the cover for the upcoming issue, where she opens up about everything from why she's so passionate to own the rights to her music to breaking down gender barriers in the industry.
While the singer has certainly faced her share of ups and downs these past years, looking back now, Taylor wouldn't give her younger self any advice. "I would have done everything exactly the same way," she told the publication. "Because even the really tough things I've gone through taught me things that I never would have learned any other way . . . I've got my friends, who like me for the right reasons. I've got my family. I've got my boyfriend. I've got my fans. I've got my cats." See more empowering quotes from Taylor ahead.
