"It’s not about wishing away the fact that there are mean people in the world, its about figuring out how you can deal with it in the best way possible and how you can make sure you never ever intentionally make someone else feel the way they are making you feel" - Taylor Swift
"One of the things you can expect is that I’m really trying to challenge myself in every single way possible to make music that doesn’t sound like music I’ve made before, when you get into the album there are a lot of late eighties sounds and vocal stylings and production elements. We were really just playing around with this album and didn’t limit ourselves, what ended up happening was we made an album that really sounds like an album, it’s really sonically cohesive, and I’m really proud of it. Ed has heard a lot of the songs on the album but he hadn’t heard the first single, because the time that I was going to play it for him it was the day that ‘Sing’ had just come out’. I said, ‘no, we’re not making this about my music today, it’s all about ‘Sing’ today’, so now he’s finally heard it alongside the rest of the world, he has heard a lot of the new album, he’s got the inside scoop. I doubt he’ll tell though!"
I’m in NYC for some work-related meetings. I was hanging out with a few radio friends, when we got word that Taylor was holding an exclusive party.
One of my friends had an “in,” so we went over to her apartment right away. Sure enough, Taylor herself let us in right away.
We ate food prepared by Taylor herself, drank with her, and had so much fun.
As we were in the midst of all this fun, she pulled down her Grammy and other various music awards off a shelf. She gave me one, and asked to have our pictures taken together on her very own Polaroid Camera.
So now, I have this hard copy memory of the two of us to keep for all time. She is such a nice woman. (x)
