I’m just going to tell you guys the same thing that I’ve had to tell my mom over and over: I love you, I really do, and I respect your opinions, and I’m so thankful for all you’ve done for me, but I’m a grown woman, I can make my own choices, and I need you to get off my jock. That’s what I’ve told her every single time she’s questioned one of my life choices, and that’s what I’m telling you now. I love talking about Taylor Swift. Probably I’ll never stop talking about Taylor Swift. But I need you to love me and accept me in spite of that.
Like, ok, if you work in a restaurant, don’t you ever sample some food? If you work in an office, haven’t you taken a few pens home on occasion? Taylor Swift is my office supply. And I will always take it.
Oh, but let’s discuss her stupid new interview now, all right?
On not remembering all her true loves: “I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate. How many times has she been in love? I don’t know how many people I’ve said ‘I love you’ to. I could probably count it up, but I don’t feel like it. Part of me feels you can’t say you were truly in love if it didn’t last. If I end up getting married and having kids, that’s when I’ll know it’s real—because it lasted.”
Tay Tay doesn’t think things through: “I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t. I don’t think it through, really, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’”
On her beloved bad boys: “There’s a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore.”
Oh, shut your silly mouth, Taylor Swift! I would tell you to get over yourself, but how could I when that’s something that I so obviously cannot do myself?
