It’s no surprise to us that Taylor Swift covers the November “Hair Issue” of Glamour. We’d probably kill for her luscious blond waves, if such a deal could be made. Still, the singer looks surprised in the photo — though this time it’s not, her “Gosh! You picked me?” surprise face, it’s more, “Oh, you caught me! It’s a good thing I had my hair all done and this pretty gold dress on.” In all seriousness, she looks as awesome as ever — with her fave red lipstick matching her nails, belt and a random swath of tulle — and we want lessons in how to apply blush so perfectly. We also want lessons in playing coy the way she did with the interviewer.
When the Glamour writer brought up “Dear John” and her ex-boyfriend John Mayer’s comment to Rolling Stone that it was about him, she responded, “How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about.” And apparently, she managed to shield herself from anything Mayer said to RS about feeling “humiliated” by the song. “No! I don’t want to know, I don’t want to know,” she said as his quote was about to be read to her. I know it wasn’t good, so I don’t want to know. I put a high priority on staying happy, and I know what I can’t handle. … It’s not that I’m this egomaniac and I don’t want to hear anything negative, because I do keep myself in check. But I’ve never developed that thick a skin.”
We imagine that developing a thick skin would make her less vulnerable to the kind of emotions that make her songs resonate with everyone, so we’re glad she hasn’t done that yet. At the same time, maybe she’s being a little too naive about how much we all know about her life? Here’s how she answered a question about current flame Conor Kennedy: “I don’t talk about my personal life in great detail. I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you’re going through.”
Do you agree? Are her songs enough info on her personal life to keep you satisfied? We do enjoy playing the guessing game, of course, but sometimes it’s just pure torture!
