Added new photoshoot of Taylor for the ‘InStyle’ Magazine November 2014 Issue. Check them out!
Taylor Swift flaunted her gorgeous looks for InStyle’s November issue.
The blond beauty gave a killer smize on the mag’s cover while rocking a pair of leather pants and embellished top, but it doesn’t even come close to the multiple smoldering shots from her photo spread inside the mag. And along with getting her model on for the camera, T.Swift talked about a variety of things including marriage and whether or not she’ll be a parent someday (not that she needs to worry about any of that right now).
“I don’t know if I’ll have kids,” she tells the magazine. “It’s impossible not to picture certain scenarios and how you would try to convince them that they have a normal life when, inevitably, there will be strange men pointing giant cameras at them from the time they are babies.”
As for tying the knot, the 24-year-old says, “I’m too young to get married. Not agewise, but I know myself, so why try to meet someone right now when I know I’m too young to do something serious?”
For now, the singer is just focused on her work and spending time with her famous girlfriends. She tells People’s 40th anniversary issue, her “group of friends,” which includes Lena Dunham, Lorde, Selena Gomez and Jaime King (just to name a few), “are the most important thing to me right now.”
“They are so fun and know me and like me for who I actually am,” she says. “It’s really wonderful to have someone like Lena Dunham in my life. We have the same responsibility and the same pressure that’s on you when you write every single word you end up performing.”
She adds, “The last couple of years have been about defining life on my own terms. Being on my own, prioritizing my girlfriends, my family and my music above everything else and trying things I never thought I’d try. It’s a really liberating and freeing time.”
Taylor continues to say that if she decides to get back into the dating game, it’s going to take someone extra special.
“It would take an astonishing human for me to even consider getting back into a relationship. It would take something really, really, really, really different—a kind of a one-in-a-million person for me to face all that. I don’t have any kid of idea who I’d want to be with, because I don’t have any pieces missing from my life right now. I’m not looking for anything to complete. I think that’s a nice place to be.”
Swift’s InStyle issue hits newsstands Oct. 17.
“Maybe you’re not meant to fit in. Maybe you’re supposed to stand out,” says Taylor Swift, eyes twinkling.
At 24, she’s channeled the hopes and angst of young women across the galaxy, won Grammys and acquired a wardrobe supermodels would kill for.
But right now, in a London hotel room after a grueling day promoting her new album, Taylor Swift is a girl from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, cozied up in a chair with one leg tucked beneath her, puzzling out life as a generation’s icon.
“People are going to talk about you,” she continues. “But maybe you’re having more fun than them anyway.”
Maybe Swift has got it all figured out.
Not long ago there were boyfriends and breakups, and hit songs about both. But, weary of tabloid headlines, she made some changes, chopping off her long blond hair and – for now – cutting guys out of the equation altogether.
These days, nights are spent with a group of female pals and days revolve around her Manhattan apartment, where her companions are her two cats, Olivia Benson and Meredith.
“I used to be fascinated by romance,” she admits. “Now I’m more realistic.”
Taylor Swift can’t shake this award off.
The singer has been named the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year — the first artist to ever receive the honor twice.
“As one of the most influential artists of her generation, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts,” said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s Entertainment Group, which consists of Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter. “Over the course of her career, she’s charted 60 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 — the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006. We are tremendously excited to be honoring her as the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year for the second time.”
The award goes to the female artist who “has shaped and inspired the music industry with her success, leadership and innovation over the past twelve months.”
Taylor Swift is a seven-time Grammy winner, and is the best-selling digital music artist of all time. She’s also the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010′s Speak Now and 2012′s Red). Swift made her latest chart headlines when her newest single, “Shake It Off,” became her second Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, following “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
“On behalf of American Express, I would like to congratulate Taylor Swift on this incredible honor,” said Deborah Curtis, vice president of entertainment and sports marketing at American Express. “We are proud to be a long-time partner of Taylor’s and are thrilled for her continued success and well-deserved recognition as Billboard’s Woman of the Year.”
Swift will be feted at the 9th annual Billboard Women in Music Awards on Dec. 12 in New York City.
Those Ice Bucket Challenge videos are getting pushed farther and farther down in your Facebook feed, but Taylor Swift is still soaking wet as she graces the cover of the new Rolling Stone.
In jeans and a white tank top, Swift looks over her shoulder as she poses on the beach with her back mostly to the camera. Her hair is wet after a romp in the surf, and her thumbs are hooked in the back pockets of her Levi’s.
In the accompanying feature story, the “Shake It Off” singer discusses one thing she doesn’t do on camera, which is take it off.
“There’s someone whose entire job it is to figure out things that I don’t want the world to see,” Swift tells Rolling Stone. “They look at your career, they look at what you prioritize, and they try to figure out what would be the most revealing or hurtful. Like, I don’t take my clothes off in pictures or anything — I’m very private about that. So it scares me how valuable it would be to get a video of me changing. It’s sad to have to look for cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms. I don’t walk around naked with my windows open, because there’s a value on that.”

If you want to become a hugely successful star in any area of the entertainment industry, or just hugely successful at your actual chosen career, then it is usually best to focus all your efforts on your work and not let yourself have any distractions. It is for this reason that we see so many failed romances in the entertainment industry these days, as work gets in the way and the stars have to choose their career or their romance.
There are not too many people in the world who have come to understand this better than singer Taylor Swift, who has been romantically linked to a number of different men over the years, yet she still finds herself being single. There has been some good to come from the failed relationships that Taylor has experienced though, as Swift tends to write her hit songs based on her romances.
However, it looks like Taylor Swift is going to have to look elsewhere for inspiration for her music, as she has admitted that she is taking a break from dating, telling the Guardian, “It just doesn’t seem like a possibility in the near future. It doesn’t ever work. What works is having incredible girlfriends who I can trust and tell everything.”
During the course of her hugely successful singing career we have seen Taylor Swift being romantically linked to the likes of Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, and Harry Styles. It will be interesting to see how long Taylor Swift does actually stay single for and how the single life will affect her music.
