Taylor Swift Embraces Role as Role Model

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift will be featured on tomorrow night's installment of 60 Minutes and, in a few excerpts released from the upcoming interview, the star makes it clear that she's open to her status as a role model.

"I definitely think about a million people when I'm getting dressed in the morning, and that's just part of my life now," Swift tells the news magazine. "I think it's my responsibility to know it and to be conscious of it."

While other artists may have gotten into trouble over the years for drunk driving or the smoking of substances, Swift won't ever use her age as an excuse for any behavior of this type.

"It would be really easy to say 'I'm 21 now, I do what I want. You raise your kids!'" Swift says. "But it's not the truth of it. The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation."

@Hilton Hater: Of course you had to make the jab at Miley Cyrus. Just like how the media used to pit Christina Aguilera against Britney Spears. Personally, I think that people should just let Taylor Swift be Taylor Swift and let Miley Cyrus be Miley Cyrus. Young women shouldn't be expected to all act the same. If Taylor wants to embrace her role model status and be America's sweet heart, that's fine. If Miley doesn't want that status and would rather do things her way, that's fine too. The End.

I think it's kind of fun to call out your ex-boyfriends. Like why do this if you're not gonna take the opportunity to always have the last word. It's so much fun.

I saw that documentary on Britney Spears, and I feel bad for her—she can't leave her house!
