Taylor Swift may be involved in a burgeoning feud with Miley Cyrus, but the singer is featured in the latest issue of WebMD and tells the magazine that she tries hard not to remain down for long.
“The fact is, my life is amazing," Swift says. "So when I’m getting too much in my own head, I try to say all the things I’m grateful for.
"It can be simple things - like if I’m complaining about how my cellphone is working slowly, I think about how slowly they worked five years ago. It’s OK to have glass-half-empty days, but not too many of them. I place a higher priority on being happy than I do on freaking out.”
And Taylor has few reasons these days to be upset in general, as she appears to be happily dating Harry Styles, while her new album has gone triple platinum.
"There’s a huge amount of pressure and responsibility because millions of people are going to potentially spend their hard-earned money on the album," Swift says of making a CD.
"And there’s a great responsibility for the critics who will write about it, and responsibility for the girl who is going through a breakup and needs a song about what she’s feeling, and responsibility for the girl who doesn’t feel good about herself and needs a song for that, too, and I worry about saying or doing the wrong thing.”
Has Swift succeeded in meeting these responsibilities? Most fans would say yes.
