Taylor Swift Fears Becoming “Self-Centered,” “Vain,” “Intolerable,” “Alone”
Taylor Swift is all over the place lately.
She's on the cover of Vanity Fair, talking about sexism and how she's only dated two guys since 2010, and she's also on the cover of InStyle UK, talking about her fears of being alone.
“What I worry about is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centered, vain human being. My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself,” Taylor told InStyle (via Gossip Cop). “I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone, because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody.”
She lives her life openly, feeling everything, because she'd much rather do that than end up as “the typical Hollywood sad cliche of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone. That’s my fear.” Instead, at this point in her life she's known for almost never being alone. She told InStyle she's "a girls' girl" who only has two or three guy friends, "but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them and they’ll end up in a slideshow of people I’ve apparently dated on the internet." (You mean like this?)
Some people actually like going solo (remember how Kelly Clarkson said it doesn’t mean she’s lonely when she’s alone?), and there’s no saying a little quiet time in the bathtub has to turn into a sob story. But if she's really afraid of becoming too much of a big star to live a normal life ... she could always give up the spotlight and just live like a regular gal.
