For the extremely candid and open interview, Taylor chose a lot of her personal life moments and songwriting and music journey to speak about, revealing a lot of excitingly new information and a peek into what goes on in that brilliant mind.
Taylor Swift Shines As Person Of The Year
Swift opened the interview by talking about how she got into the industry and how her career started. She then goes on to recount the struggle that came with being an artist in the industry. She says, “I’ve been raised up and down the flagpole of public opinion so many times in the last 20 years. I’ve been given a tiara, then had it taken away.”
She then talks about the growth she has had in the years it took to polish herself as an artist and sharpen her art in the same journey, and how she feels about her mega-successful year. “It feels like the breakthrough moment of my career, happening at 33. And for the first time in my life, I was mentally tough enough to take what comes with that.”
She then adds, “This is the proudest and happiest I’ve ever felt, and the most creatively fulfilled and free I’ve ever been. Ultimately, we can convolute it all we want, or try to overcomplicate it, but there’s only one question. Are you not entertained?”
Taylor Swift Opens Up What It’s Like To Be On Tour
Swift also opened up about her experience during her tour- which has become the highest-grossing and most successful tour of the year, with its concert film being the highest-grossing concert film of all time, and reigning at the box office this year.
About her experience, she says, “I knew this tour was harder than anything I’d ever done before by a long shot.”
“Every day I would run on the treadmill, singing the entire set list out loud. Fast for fast songs, and a jog or a fast walk for slow songs. Then I had three months of dance training, because I wanted to get it in my bones,” she says. “I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought. Learning choreography is not my strong suit” she added, she took dance lessons from Mandy Moore- who was recommended to her by her friend Emma Stone.
She also revealed that she had quit drinking. “Doing that show with a hangover. I don’t want to know that world.”
“They had to work really hard to get the tickets,” she says, talking about the difficulty of bagging an Eras Tour ticket. “I wanted to play a show that was longer than they ever thought it would be, because that makes me feel good leaving the stadium.”
She ends the interview with a promise of producing some killer vault tracks for ‘Reputation (Taylor’s Version).’ She says the upcoming vault tracks for Reputation will be “fire.”
“I’m collecting horcruxes,” she says. “I’m collecting infinity stones. Gandalf’s voice is in my head every time I put out a new one. For me, it is a movie now.”
