Taylor Swift rocks a smoky eye and a boho look on the cover of Marie Claire UK’ s November issue. There are two magazine covers, the one above is a special edition for magazine subscribers. Swift opens up about love, writing songs about her ex’s and her new album ‘Red’, due out Oct. 22.
Here’s what she had to share:
On still believing in love: Even after it explodes into a million pieces and burns down and you’re standing in a pile of the ash of what it once was thinking, ‘Why did I have to meet this person, why did this have to happen? But then, when you make eye contact with someone across the room and it clicks and, bam, you’re there. In love again,” she says.
On if she falls in love easily: “Not if it’s the wrong person, yes if it’s the right person.”
On if she warns her ex’s they could be the subject of a song: “Well, it’s not like it’s in fine print. But music is absolutely everything that I am and everything that I stand for. It’s not my fault if someone gets into a relationship with me and then cheats and I write a song about it.”
On money and a future family: That money will be really good for sending my kids to college some day – or maybe I’ll have a few more kids than I thought. I want a bunch of them running around, minimum four. “I want to wait a while, but the idea of pouring everything you are into another person when you become a parent has always been amazing to me.”
On beating Lady Gaga to be crowned the highest paid celebrity under 30 by Forbes magazine in the US, explaining: “I called my dad and said: ‘How did that happen?’ I just wake up every day and go about my life and do what’s on the schedule. I don’t think in terms of how much money it’s making. I just knew the crowds were getting bigger and the shows were selling out faster. For something like that to come out is certainly unexpected and nice.”
