"Clubs are just not where I want to be photographed. For everything I do, I think about a 6-year-old girl and her mom that I saw at my concert last night. I think about what those two individuals would think if I were at a club last night. I never want to be arrested, and I never want to get a DUI, those are my moral values. I am an over-achiever, and I want to be known for the good things in my life."
"I think there is a lesson in knowing that you can live your life in a way that you’re proud of and people are still gonna take shots. And that’s not just in the world that I live in, that’s in middle school and that’s in high school and that’s in college and that’s when you get your first job."
I do fear that if i were to have someone in my life who mattered, i would second guess every one of my lyrics
It’s like how I’m perceived to be constantly going out with people. I’m just not. It’s like she’s a hopeless romantic so she’s a serial monogamist, always dating. They look at me and think: ‘Oh she has to be in love or she’s not happy.’ It is possible for a woman to be a romantic but also to be single and to be happy. I am single, to be honest being single is one of the best things about my life right now. And whatever people think I actually love it.
Just because something is over doesn’t mean it wasn’t incredibly beautiful. ‘Cause another lesson I’ve learned is not all stories have a happy ending, and you have to learn how to deal with that.
When I got my first laptop, I was about 14, and my computer had just died. We didn’t think we’d bother getting somebody else in to repair it, so my mom agreed to let me get a laptop. I was SO excited, and we went to the store, picked one, took it home, set it up, and I was always on it. Constantly. Then my mom decided she’d turn the wireless connection off every night at 9. I used to have this way of scuttling downstairs when she wasn’t looking, and crawling behind the couch to the table where the switch was, it was like a Bond movie or something, I thought I was so cool. I’d ever so slightly reach out, flick the switch, crawl back behind the couch and just be on the bottom stair when my mom would call from the living room, ‘Go back to bed Taylor. I’m switching it off again.’ It was so devastating, you know? All that hard work for nothing!
