Grammy nominee Taylor Swift, 22, graces the cover of Vogue’s February 2012 issue. The 70’s inspired shoot was stylized by famed photographer Mario Testino. In the interview the country-pop star talks about her insecurities, dream job and growing up.
On feeling like an outsider: “I think who you are in school really sticks with you,” she says. “I don’t ever feel like the cool kid at the party, ever. It’s like, Smile and be nice to everybody, because you were not invited to be here.”
On her dream job: “This is what I’ve wanted to do my whole life,” she says. “It never freaks me out. Never. Ever.” She pauses for a moment. “But you know what does freak me out? 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.”
On if she ever acts bratty: “Yeah, but if I do I usually spend the next four days apologizing,” she says. “I get post-conversation anxiety. ‘I am so sorry if I said something weird. Did I make that weird? I am sorry if I made that weird!’ ”
