So, what's got the famously effervescent megastar all worked up now? Making the cover of Vogue magazine's February issue--quite a big deal for a fashion-loving gal such as Swift.
The magazine's website offers the cover story for fans to read, as well. In it, Swift is profiled by celeb journalist Jonathan Van Meter--and, in addition to talking style and wardrobe, reveals some dishy items about her upcoming fourth album. February's Vogue cover
"There's just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak," she explains, "and that will turn out to be what the next album is about."
Does Swift have anyone romantic in her life right now? "I got nothing going on!" she admits. "I just don't really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now, and I'm not sad and I'm not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that."
Huh? What was going on last year around Christmastime that triggered tears? Apparently something very bad, but Swift isn't telling. "I am not gonna go into it," Swift notes cryptically. "It's a sad story!" (Um...could she be referring to Jake Gyllenhaal? Okay, won't speculate.)
As usual, the singer is quick to express much gratitude for her good fortune. In fact, when asked what she fears, she answers: "When is the other shoe going to drop? I am so happy right now. So I am always living in fear. This can't be real, right? This can't really be my life."Courtesy Vogue magazine
And, for those who are critical of Swift's status as a "true" country persona--she tells Vogue that the one person whose career she'd like to emulate is Kris Kristofferson. Can't get more real than that!
