It is a daily struggle for me to not buy more cats.
Taylor Swift at the 2014 VMA’s.
“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It just little things like that, that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making choices you won’t regret.
“I was listening to a lot of late 80’s pop, because I really loved the chances they were taking I loved how bold they were. So being inspired by that I started delving into the late 80’s - and what I found was that it was apparently a time of limitless potential. And the idea that you can do what you want, be who you want, wear what you want, love what you want - bright colors, bold chances, rebellion. The idea of that was so inspiring to me…but basically in thinking about that, and thinking about how this new album is a bit of a rebirth for me because it’s so now. I’ve never really made these kinds of changes before. And having been born on December 13th, 1989…this album is called 1989.” — Taylor Swift
“I learnt that it’s not our job to make people like us if they don’t want to. And when I learnt that, things got a little easier. And I guess every time someone has been mean to me I’ve tried to make a mental note that I would never intentionally make anyone else feel the way that they have made me feel. And if you did that, I think we could hope to make the world a little bit nicer place to live.”
