Listen, I’m not up my own ass, either, but if I was a performer, morbid curiosity would mean that I would have to look at shit people were saying about me in reviews, online, whatever. Sure, I’d probably get really mad and want to go on under a pseudonym to respond to my haters because they’re talking shit, but the point is, I would look. Wanting feedback on the work you’re doing doesn’t make you self-obsessed, it makes you human.
“You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things, either way you’re obsessed with yourself and I’m not – you can become unhinged so easily,” Swift told Glamour magazine.
“Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. So I distance myself, because I feel everything.
“The little I am exposed to hurts my feelings. The only things I can really control are my songs and my behavior. The rest? If I focused on it that would lead to insanity.”
Eh, I just don’t know if I buy it. I like TSwift and I think what she’s TRYING to say is right, I just don’t know that all that nobility talk is actually how things are in the real world. Maybe it is and I should give her more credit, but… eh.
