Taylor Swift is Self Sweet

Taylor Swift is Self Sweet

Taylor Swift rocks out bright yellow jeans on the March 2009 cover of Self Magazine.

The 19-year-old musician dished to Self about being real, having a successful photo shoot and considering all her fans her friends. Check it:

On her birthday presents: “They’re all giving me things because it’s my birthday. These are the coolest shoes ever! (of the new Christian Louboutin’s SELF gave as a birthday gift). And he (Ken Paves) gave me bangs. Bangs and heels…best birthday ever!”

On her fan-friends: “If I sign an autograph for someone, I don’t put them in the category of ‘fan’ and keep them at arm’s length. If we strike up a conversation and we like the same things and we have the same sense of humor, then they’re my friend. It doesn’t matter how I met them. The people who go to my MySpace page are the people who make me happiest. That’s why I like to make videos for them. I like to thank them as much as possible. And when they come to my shows, I like to give them hugs.”

On being honest and truthful: “I don’t think honesty is ever something you should regret. I figure if I’m going to cover things up and try to hide the way I feel and try to be perfect all the time, people are going to see through that. And also, if you’re trying to change yourself all the time to adapt to what you think you should be, you’re going to run out of the things to be after a while.”

On her photo shoot playlist: “I made a playlist for the photo shoot because you always have to have really cool dance music and music with a really awesome beat to it. You need to be in the right energy and mood so I made a playlist that I am very, very proud of. I left my iPod at home, so we had to makeshift one, all the necessities. Jesse McCartney, Justin Timberlake—both are absolutely pivotal to the success of a photo shoot. Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, Beyonce—very, very necessary. It’s a pretty good playlist. They are so good that you can listen to them over and over. You can’t do a photo shoot without music.”

    that cover does not flatter her at all. they over curled the hair and the person who laid out the cover did a bad job because it just looks a little bland and boring. if they’s had a blue background or something it wouldve been better.

  • Tory

    haha true she looks bland on this cover
    they could have made her look so much more beautiful like she normally looks :)

    but yeahh she is like the wisest person I’ve never met.
    She’s so sweet and endearing and honestly cares about her fans and people that she meets. I find that so inspiring and relateable. :)
    she truly is a beautiful young woman- inside AND out.

    i really love her and she looks good.i liked the answers in the interview and i think she’s a really sweet person!

  • Adiore

    Taylor herself is pretty. But whoever did the photoshoot made her look bad. They should have shot in a ‘natural’ setting like the beach or something fun. Not have a plain pink background =/ The outfit she’s wearing doesn’t look that good either.

  • omg
