Taylor Covers Glamour, Says Fame Isn’t Just ‘Sprinkles And Ponies’
It may seem like Taylor Swift‘s life is all sunshine and sparkles and Kennedys, but don’t let that fool you! In the latest issue of Glamour, the pop star opens up about her love life, calling ex John Mayer “presumptuous” for claiming that Dear John is about him, admits that she has “never developed that thick a skin,” and answers critics who paint her as perhaps more happy-go-lucky than she really is:
“I think some people think it’s just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I’m dark and twisty and complicated, because I’m not that either. It’s just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.”
We kind of wish the glossy had gone with “ponies and rainbows” as a theme for the shoot, but as it stands, the Ellen Von Unwerth-lensed cover shows Swift pulling her best wide-eyed “Oh golly!” face in a glitzy, gorgeous Burberry tank and Dior skirt, while inside, she hops aboard a Nashville train in a series of characteristically femme ensembles.
A behind-the-scenes look at the shoot, the interview, and the Glamour offices will be on ABC Nightline tonight at 11:35PM, but for now check out the cover and spread below:
