While her dating life has been scrutinized - she publicly broke up with Joe Jonas and she was pimped out to Jonathan Cook - the professional life of Taylor Swift has never been better.
In fact, she was the top-selling artist in the world in 2008.
The beautiful country star reacts to that fact in the latest issue of Glamour. She says:
"It just blows my mind, because I’ve been trying to do this all my life. I remember the girls who would come to talent shows and say to anyone they met, 'I’m so-and-so - I’m going to be famous someday.' I was never that girl. I would show up with my guitar and say, “This is a song I wrote about a boy in my class.” And that’s what I still do today."
In the interview, Swift also touches on insecurities and any future relationships:
On celebrity body issues: I think the reason a lot of celebrities feel insecure and want to stop eating altogether is because they see so many pictures of themselves on a daily basis. It’s unhealthy how many times you see your own image. When you see something enough, you’re going to tear it down to the point where some days you feel like you’re not even pretty.
On dating: It’s always going to be long-distance, even if I date the boy who lives next door to me in Nashville. I’ll be flying to see him and flying him places to see me. It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot of scheduling in my life. Of course, if I met somebody who was worth it, I would probably stop thinking that way!
