This is such a non-story, but basically Taylor Swift is going to be the first solo female to play a stadium tour in Australia later this year since Madonna did it 20 years ago, which led reporters to ask her if she thinks of herself as being as big as Madonna. Because of course. As if she’s going to say yes! Anyway…
Here’s what Taylor told The AP:
“I would never see myself that way. I see myself as kind of this girl who writes songs in her bedroom.
“You can kind of dress it up all you want and you can put together an amazing theatrical production, you can become a better performer as time goes by, and you can try to excite people, but I’m always going to be a girl who writes songs in her bedroom in my own personal perception of myself.
“And I think it’s important that I don’t necessarily think too hard about what everybody else’s perception of me is or else I’d just get completely lost in it. It’s just easier to think of myself that way.”
Good answer! Let’s be honest – Taylor Swift knows her place – she’s a self-focused songwriter who does her little kiss and tell tracks and that’s fine. She’s talented and does her part, but I don’t think she’s big-headed in any way.
