Earlier this week, Taylor Swift caught up with Dom before her show in Detroit to chat about screaming goats, Ed Sheeran, being a role model and her gangster as nickname, T Swizz.

“My brother’s so over me. When he comes in town, I’ll be like ‘Hey, you wanna go to lunch?’ He’s like, ‘No I’m just gonna sit here and watch TV.’ It’s fun to have your family look at you exactly the same as they always did.”

From Wonderland Magazine:
Us and Taylor really got on, not least because of all the inflatable animals and suchlike that Taylor messed around with on set, but because she’s genuinely a good egg: honest, expansive, funny, and full of odd, touching analogies about what it’s like to be so young, so famous, and so thoroughly hounded by blogs and tabloid newspapers all the time. For the full story (including giraffes, pink phones, Prada sunnies and white loafers) be sure to pick up the new issue, which is available in all good newsagents this week. Until then, here’s the topline bits everyone needs to know about our girl Tay.
1. She likes M.I.A.
(‘Bad Girls’ was the first track she whacked on the stereo for the Wonderland cover shoot. Other surprises from Taylor’s iPod: Muse, Gucci Mane.)
2. She wasn’t all that sure about ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’
“When I wrote [that song], first of all, I thought it was the longest title ever written. I thought, “I don’t know how well this is going to go over.”
3. She has a lot of feelings.
“If you’ve ever experienced great pain, loss or heartache, you know there are probably about 50 different mini-emotions going on throughout the course of a day. It’s very complex; you’re never feeling just sad. Maybe you wake up and you feel sad, and then you get angry, and you feel like, ‘I’m fine!’, and then you feel confident, and then you feel a sense of doubt, and then you’re insecure, and then there’s jealousy, and then you’re back to sad – and then you feel fine again! All in the course of an afternoon if you’re going through something difficult.
4. She DID NOT buy a house in London just to be close to Harry Styles.
“When I go out in public or go to the grocery store, if someone asks me about something then I know it’s a big deal. If the check-out cashier says ‘I heard you bought a house in England,’ I’ll be like, ‘no, I didn’t.’ And they’ll be like ‘well it said it when I checked my email this morning.’
5. Despite being the only popstar to make a hit with the phrase “like, ever”, she wants to tighten up her syntax. (Well, kind of).
“I’m trying to say ‘like’ less… It makes me sound like I’m seventeen. [But] I only just decided that five minutes ago. It’s not a thing I’m actively doing.”
“I’ll be interested to see how it all plays out. [But] so far, none of that has happened.”
7. She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing, and doesn’t mind.
“Well, I’ve kind of realised that I have no idea where I’m going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months. I mean, I know where I’ll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I’m going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes. I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. You know, I just have no idea and I’m kind of into that.”

Taylor Swift goes wide-eyed for Wonderland magazine’s April 2013 cover.
The 23-year-old musician opened up to the glossy about dating, being happy, and her affinity for the number 13. Check it:
On getting your heart broken: “It’s very complex; you’re never feeling just sad. Maybe you wake up and you feel sad, and then you get angry, and then you feel like ‘I’m fine’, and then you feel confident, and then you feel a sense of doubt, and then you’re insecure, and then there’s jealousy, and then you’re back to sad – and then you feel fine again.”
On relationships: “Relationships are like traffic lights. And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light.”
On happiness: “I just try to live a life. That’s the main goal: being able to be happy – not to be happy, I mean, to be content. You know, I’m content in the uncertainty of life in your 20s. You have curveballs thrown at you constantly, you don’t really know what you think about anything, you don’t necessarily know what your permanent beliefs are – everything’s up in the air. But, I kind of like it. It’s exciting.”
On her lucky number 13: “I’ve had [the number 13] bombard me at certain times when I’ve had the best night and the worst night at the same time. Maybe I won a great award but I got really criticized for my performance or something. But then I wrote a song about that performance and won two Grammy’s for it the next year. [It means that] things are lining up the way they’re supposed to be.”
Heartbreak kid Taylor Swift says she has no direction after her break up with One Direction’s Harry Styles.
The serial celeb dater admits dreams of wedding bells and babies are all up in the air after hinting she was partly to blame for the fall of her latest high profile romance back in January.
‘If you go through life needing to feel like the good guy all the time, you’re just delusional,’ said the US songbird.
Hinting she and Hazza were stuck on amber, she continued: ‘Relationships are like traffic lights. And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light.’
Now, the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer reveals how she has been cast adrift.
‘I’ve kind of realised that I have no idea where I’m going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months,’ the 23-year-old told Wonderland magazine.
‘I mean, I know where I’ll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I’m going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes. I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. I just have no idea and I’m kind of into that.’
Talking about heartbreak the star said: ‘It’s very complex; you’re never feeling just sad. Maybe you wake up and you feel sad, and then you get angry, and then you feel like ‘I’m fine’, and then you feel confident, and then you feel a sense of doubt, and then you’re insecure, and then there’s jealousy, and then you’re back to sad – and then you feel fine again.’
For now, the singer hopes the next surprise that 2013 dishes up is a good one.
‘So even if, you know, you go through difficult things, hard things, unexpected things that kind of knock you over for a second, I think the year 2013, that has to mean that things are happening for a reason, right?’

J&J Interview Taylor Swift (ACMs)
WYCD ACM 2013 Interview
Taylor Swift ACM Interview 4/5/13
Interviewer: Where do you see yourself say five years from now?
Taylor: In five years, I’ll be 22. I’d really like to be starting to headline. I think that would be amazing. I’d love to have another platinum album, and I’d love to have won some sort of award (an ACM or CMA, I don’t care). Five years is a long time, so who knows what might happen. I never thought all of this would happen in one year, so I can’t wait to see my life in five!
I’m so proud of everything she has achieved! :)
Taylor Swift worries about everything, including any possible worst case scenario that could happen, either to her or her career, including making the wrong business decisions and recording a bad record. So how does she deal with that constant anxiety?
“I try to balance it,” she said. “I try to balance the fear with hope. I try to balance the kind of uncertainty with faith. I try to kind of walk that line and sometimes it’s unbalanced and sometimes it’s balanced and you lean in different directions every single day and that’s the fun of life; it’s unpredictable.”
As much as Taylor tries to keep her worry in check, sometimes she just has to give in. “Some days you’re just having that day,” she said. “Like a mental health day. You’re just off. You’re just feeling sad or you feel down or everything looks gray, and that’s okay. As long as I don’t have too many of those in a row, it’s okay to have those every once in a while.”
When Taylor does find herself worrying a lot, she has a plan to bring herself back to a better place. “I try to talk myself back into happiness and appreciation and gratitude and things like that,” she said.
Taylor recently kicked off her RED Tour, which is selling out shows across the country. She’s nominated for five ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year which she has won for the past two years.
