Taylor Swift Wants to Live More Quietly
The stage is probably the only place you’ll find Taylor Swift partying, and that sentiment comes from the star herself. It seems she’d prefer attention only when there’s a guitar in her hand and she’s swinging her long blonde locks for the whole arena to see.
“I’m not a party girl. I love performing on stage, that’s where I can really come alive and get a bit wild, but in private I want to live more quietly,” Swift reveals, according to contactmusic.com. She continues, “I want to live a good life, make good choices, and be good to the people I love and stay close to my friends.”
Perhaps the very public speculation on her romantic relationships — including the recent possible demise with One Direction’s Harry Styles — has intensified Swift’s dedication to maintaining a private life. She recognizes with extreme clarity the ramifications of living her mistakes in the headlines and says, “Sometimes people tell me that I’m young and I should be going out more, having fun, making mistakes and being more selfish. The trouble is, if I mess up, there’ll be six months of headlines afterwards.”
The 23-year-old superstar seems to be fiercely committed to living her personal life in a way that she enjoys, despite the pressure she must face each day as the success of ‘Red’ continues to mount. Hopefully she can continue to live a quiet life with her close friends, family, and music… and stay away from all the guys she knew were trouble.
