Taylor Swift sets the record straight on relationships and her thoughts on motherhood.
Taylor’s new album, Red, is selling at a record pace and she is reportedly dating a new beau after quietly parting ways with Conor Kennedy. Taylor gave an interview to Cosmopolitan to share her thoughts on relationships and becoming a mum.
What she won’t tolerate in a relationship: “I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing; it’s a common-sense thing. If I was in that situation, if I were them, would I be doing this to me? Would I ever do this to them? If the answer is no, then they’re not treating me fairly. I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.”
What she needs in a relationship: “I need that unexplainable spark…I just need to see someone and feel Oh, no, uh-oh. It’s only happened a few times in my life, but I feel like if I was gonna be with someone forever, it would be because I saw them and I thought, Oh, no.”
On the warning signs of a relationship on it’s way out: “I’ve had a lot of dark and twisty situations happen, enough to realise that when someone exhibits signs of evoking a dark and twisty relationship and dark and twisty feelings, it’s not interesting to me. I’ve learned when to get out. I’ve never wasted too much time with the wrong person and that’s one thing I’m proud of.”
On whether she can imagine doing anything else other than music: “Being a mum full time, doing everything for my kids, having a bunch of them. One day, I’m sure. But that’s the only other thing that could be as thrilling for me as doing this.”
