Taylor Swift Has Something to Say About the Criticism Behind Her Girl Squad

Taylor Swift is almost unrecognizable on the cover of Vogue's May issue. Sporting a much edgier look, the singer gets incredibly honest about her plans (or lack thereof) for the future and learning to embrace her past. Not only does she look simply stunning, but she also isn't afraid to touch on some hot topics, including her ongoing "feud" with Kanye West, her elite group of gal pals, and whether or not her blossoming relationship with boyfriend Calvin Harris will lead her down the aisle. Keep scrolling for some of her best quotes, and then check out how much she has changed over the years.

  • On her plans for the future: “I have no idea. This is the first time in ten years that I haven’t known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened . . . I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”
  • On the possibility of marrying Calvin Harris: “I’m just taking things as they come. I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key . . . this is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”
  • On her infamous Kanye West feud: “I think the world is so bored with the saga. I don’t want to add anything to it, because then there’s just more.”
  • On the criticism behind her girl squad: “I’ve had people say really hurtful things about me, and so I’ve kind of learned how to gauge it: ‘This is, like, low-to-medium-level hurtful.’ There are a lot of really easy ways to dispel rumors. If the rumor is that you have fake friendships, all you have to do is continue to be there for each other. And when we’re all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, maybe somebody will look back and go, ‘That was kind of ridiculous what we said about Taylor and her friends.’”
