In the feature, the 22-year-old singer dishes about her new pop inspired sound, nicknames, and acting. Check it:
On how she came up with the track “I Knew You Were Trouble”: “I actually came up with the melody on piano, and brought it to [producers] Max Martin and Shellback and said, I want to finish this, and I want to make it sound as chaotic as that emotion felt. I’ll sing the base line. I just want it to sound like this: poom poom poom poom poom. And they’re like, maybe we can infuse a little bit of dubstep. It’s one of the most adventurous songs on the record, soundwise. I love it. I’m so proud that it’s sitting at number one on iTunes.”
On whether or not she’s signed on to play Joni Mitchell in an upcoming movie:
“That’s actually not confirmed. I wish I could say it’s confirmed! But the thing about movies that I’ve learned is—I’ve been reading scripts for five years, and you just don’t know what ones are going to get greenlit and which ones aren’t, so I can’t talk about it unless it’s the real thing.”
On nicknames she secretly hates: “When I was on the Brad Paisley tour, they called me Tater Tot. And the name on my dressing room was changed to Tater Swift every single day! It was like being teased by your big brother.”
On her cat’s name: “Her name is Meredith, after Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy.”
