Taylor Swift has NO idea what she’s doing… and that’s absolutely, totally awesome. Before you’re all, “whaaa?!,” let us explain. After years of us bopping along to her tunes and of her thrilling us with her perfect pop performances, Taylor Swift has no idea what she’s going to do next. And that’s exactly what she wants and what all of us need at times.
When asked by Vogue what she plans to do next, Taylor admits, “I have no idea.” But that’s not something that stresses her at all. In fact, it’s totally the opposite. She is apparently relieved, excited, even blissful. “This is the first time in 10 years that I haven’t known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened… I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”
So what will she be doing with her time off? Learnin’. She wants to take some time to learn how to make a good drink, how to save someone if they’re drowning and how to change a tire. And we don’t have any doubt that she’ll nail them all. “I got it in my head that I couldn’t do a split, and I was really upset about it. And so I stretched every single day for a year until I could do a split. Somehow I feel better knowing that I can.”
But if you’re worried that this means you won’t be hearing any new musical material from Tay any time soon, put your fears aside, luv. “I’m always going to be writing songs,” Swift admits. “The thing is, with me, I could very well come up with three things in the next two weeks and then jump back into the studio, and all of a sudden the next record is started. That’s an option, too.”
We have to say, all options sound awesome!
