Just because Taylor Swift has the top-selling album of 2014, that doesn't mean she plans to stop doing promotional interviews any time soon. 

Normally, that would be annoying (Does everyone have to buy your record?), but in Taylor's case, she's been dropping so much truth and humor on us lately that we hope she stays in PR mode for the rest of her life.

Yesterday, we saw Taylor cover Wonderland magazine looking downright unrecognizable. Today, the British celeb mag released some excerpts from her interview, and thankfully, she's still the same old Taylor.

"Twitter's dark underbelly is that it gives people the veil of anonymity," Taylor said when asked about online trolls. "They can have a terrible day at work, feel awful about themselves, come home and get drunk and go call someone ugly on Instagram."

Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" video has taken the Internet by storm, with the singer parodying some of the celebrity gossip world’s perceptions of her relationships.

And having one heck of a good time doing it, we would have to imagine.

Taylor Goes Elin Nordegren
This is what happens when Taylor Swift catches a man cheating, at least in her music video for "Blank Space." She goes all Elin Nordegren on his car!

If you haven't seen it, the Taylor Swift "Blank Space" video features her as the lovely, unhinged girlfriend of a handsome gentleman who lives with her in a sprawling manor.

Then she busts him texting someone else, and all hell breaks loose!

Swift, already channeling her inner Stage 5 Clinger by carving the duo's initials in a tree and painting huge portraits of him, proceeds to flip the f--k out.

Quickly revealing herself to be a full-blown psychotic, she melodramatically cries, scissors up his wardrobe, throws vases and wields axes and knives.

As the coup de grace, she goes full-on Elin Nordegren on his car.

Okay, so in all likelihood, Taylor is rocking a "natural" look and is isn't actually 100 percent makeup free, still she's almost unrecognizable on this magazine cover.

Check her out on the new issue of Wonderland ...

Maybe it's because we've become so accustomed to the sight of a glammed-up Taylor over the years, but this pic reminds us of the pop princess' humble roots.

Hard as it is to believe nowadays, music's It Girl of the moment started out as an awkward, somewhat gangly country balladeer from rural Pennsylvania.

It may seem like Taylor just sat for a quick bare-faced session with a magazine that's virtually unheard of stateside, but like everything she does these days, this may have been part of a carefully coordinated effort to allow the singer to maintain control over her public image:

Taylor Swift has been on a roll in terms of creative, hilarious videos lately.

Taylor's "Shake It Off" video has become the stuff of YouTube legend thanks to an off-the-wall premise that features Taylor falling on her face (sometimes literally) while attempting a wide array of girly-girl activities.

The video for "Blank Space" - the second single from Taylor's record-breaking 1989 album - debuted online today and though it's considerably darker and more personal that "Shake It Off," it still finds plenty of humor in some unexpected places ...

Though, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry Styles during a recent listening party, for the most part she's kept mum on her love life throughout the 1989 promotional frenzy.

Perhaps that's why Taylor decided to poke fun at her own Stage 5 Clinger reputation with the aid of an actor who doesn't seem to be modeled after any of her famous exes.

Taylor Swift's smash single "Shake It Off" has become so ubiquitous since its release earlier this fall that it somehow even managed to travel through time.

How else do you explain her album sales, which look like totals from a bygone era, or the fact that an '80s aerobics routine managed to use the hit track?

Or so you might think, thanks to YouTube user Thomas Jung, who combined this '80s video with the song, making for just about the best video maybe ever:

The choreography, originally performed at the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship hosted by Alan Thicke, syncs perfectly to "Shake It Off."

We're not sure what's funnier, how well Swift's song fits the video or the fact that this was, at one point, an actual thing that existed somewhere in civilization.

It's almost as if Swift (who was born in 1989 and whose already wildly successful album 1989 was released last week) wrote the tune while watching this clip.

We can certainly see her dancing like this in the studio or at home.

The so-called "feud" between Taylor Swift and Spotify isn't really a feud at all, but rather the result of a savvy business decision on Taylor's part.

Spotify compensates artists, but streaming doesn't pay nearly as well as actual sales, so it's not hard to see why Taylor would prefer for her fans to go to iTunes or Target if they want to hear her blockbuster album:

Taylor Swift on NBC's The Voice

"I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music," Taylor said in a recent interview.

"I just don't agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free."

All this week, Taylor Swift has been celebrating the success of her latest album and making the Internet a better place in the process.

Yesterday Taylor rapped a Kendrick Lamar song to celebrate 1989's record-breaking sales.

Today, she showed just how long she's been down with the streets when she posted what might be the ultimate Throwback Thursday photo:

"The last time an album sold as many copies as 1989 did first week, it was 2002," Taylor wrote with the awesome photo above.

"I was 12, and going through my "braids phase." #nofilternecessary"

By the way, the artist who set the pace back in 2002? Eminem - another genre-redefining blonde who's arguably too open about his personal life. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

Taylor Swift may have just released the pop record of the year, but while other celebrities are gushing over Taylor's new album, Swifty's own musical tastes veer a little bit more hardcore.

That's Taylor lip-syncing to Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle" and we think it's safe to say the lyrical content is a bit outside of her wheelhouse. 

"My mind is on cloud nine, and this .9 is never on vacation," Taylor begins.

The first part is probably true, considering she just sold over a million copies and announced the 1989 world tour, but we have our doubts about Taylor carrying a cat in one hand a loaded piece in the other. 

But even with Taylor spittin' lines about busting caps, the most interesting thing about this video is where it ends:

If you're a Taylor Swift fan who uses the music streaming service Spotify, you may have found yourself disappointed this week.

As you've likely heard, Taylor released 1989 on Monday and her highly-anticipated fifth studio album is on track to become the biggest seller of the year.

Taylor Swift With Her Kitty

Swift's label, Big Machine Records, pulled all of her music from Spotify in preparation for 1989's blockbuster sales.

Spotify execs issued a statement saying that they're fans of Taylor's music and "hope that she changes her mind."

That seems unlikely.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (or at least it seems like it), a number of Hollywood A-listers used to model clothes for Abercrombie & Fitch.

Some of these young men and women look like they were designed to wear the famous brand, while others who once modeled it will likely surprise you.

Especially #7. We did not see that one coming one bit ...

Jennifer Lawrence
Oh yes, that's a young Jennifer Lawrence, the most beautiful Abercrombie model (or possibly human being) of all time.

It's hard to believe that before she was winning Oscars, posing for magazine covers, and ruling Hollywood, a young Jennifer Lawrence was doing this.

And yet at the same time, it's not. Just look at her.

She was just about the most naturally beautiful human being to ever exist on the planet, and she still is. Channing Tatum modeling for Abercrombie?

Similarly believable and as epic as you would think.
