Her best interview in YEARS. I'd highly recommend

It's Taylor talking about 30 lessons she's learned over her life and she makes so many important points regarding stuff like body confidence, sexual assault and more important topics. It's fantastic to see her speaking out about all this stuff so honestly and these are lessons that need to be spoken about.

The UK pics are SO much better than the US ones (both slay tho), on the other hand the US interview is so much better than the UK one (the songs interview is pretty cool but the 30 things she's learned interview is incredible and one of her best pieces ever, I'll post some highlights below)

Highlights from Elle US interview:

Social Media:
QUOTE
I learned to block some of the noise. Social media can be great, but it can also inundate your brain with images of what you arenít, how youíre failing, or who is in a cooler locale than you at any given moment. One thing I do to lessen this weird insecurity laser beam is to turn off comments. Yes, I keep comments off on my posts. That way, Iím showing my friends and fans updates on my life, but Iím training my brain to not need the validation of someone telling me that I look 🔥🔥🔥. Iím also blocking out anyone who might feel the need to tell me to ďgo die in a hole hoĒ while Iím having my coffee at nine in the morning. I think itís healthy for your self-esteem to need less internet praise to appease it, especially when three comments down you could unwittingly see someone telling you that you look like a weasel that got hit by a truck and stitched back together by a drunk taxidermist. An actual comment I received once.
(The weasel comment makes me scream soz oops kink.gif)

Body Image:
QUOTE
I learned to stop hating every ounce of fat on my body. I worked hard to retrain my brain that a little extra weight means curves, shinier hair, and more energy. I think a lot of us push the boundaries of dieting, but taking it too far can be really dangerous. There is no quick fix. I work on accepting my body every day.
Iíve learned that society is constantly sending very loud messages to women that exhibiting the physical signs of aging is the worst thing that can happen to us. These messages tell women that we arenít allowed to age. Itís an impossible standard to meet, and Iíve been loving how outspoken Jameela Jamil has been on this subject. Reading her words feels like hearing a voice of reason amongst all these loud messages out there telling women weíre supposed to defy gravity, time, and everything natural in order to achieve this bizarre goal of everlasting youth that isnít even remotely required of men.

(such a good statement and Taylor mentioning Jameela <3)

Biggest Fears:
QUOTE
My biggest fear. After the Manchester Arena bombing and the Vegas concert shooting, I was completely terrified to go on tour this time because I didnít know how we were going to keep 3 million fans safe over seven months. There was a tremendous amount of planning, expense, and effort put into keeping my fans safe. My fear of violence has continued into my personal life. I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds. Websites and tabloids have taken it upon themselves to post every home address Iíve ever had online. You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things. Every day I try to remind myself of the good in the world, the love Iíve witnessed and the faith I have in humanity. We have to live bravely in order to truly feel alive, and that means not being ruled by our greatest fears.
(this is so potent, especially after a stalker broke into her home like one day after this interview was published sad.gif )

Sexual Assault:
QUOTE
Itís my opinion that in cases of sexual assault, I believe the victim. Coming forward is an agonizing thing to go through. I know because my sexual assault trial was a demoralizing, awful experience. I believe victims because I know firsthand about the shame and stigma that comes with raising your hand and saying ďThis happened to me.Ē Itís something no one would choose for themselves. We speak up because we have to, and out of fear that it could happen to someone else if we donít.


Dealing with Tragedy:
QUOTE
When tragedy strikes someone you know in a way youíve never dealt with before, itís okay to say that you donít know what to say. Sometimes just saying youíre so sorry is all someone wants to hear. Itís okay to not have any helpful advice to give them; you donít have all the answers. However, itís not okay to disappear from their life in their darkest hour. Your support is all someone needs when theyíre at their lowest point. Even if you canít really help the situation, itís nice for them to know that you would if you could.
On Childhood & The Squad:
QUOTE
Realizing childhood scars and working on rectifying them. For example, never being popular as a kid was always an insecurity for me. Even as an adult, I still have recurring flashbacks of sitting at lunch tables alone or hiding in a bathroom stall, or trying to make a new friend and being laughed at. In my twenties I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my friend. So I shouted it from the rooftops, posted pictures, and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sisterhood, without realizing that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone. Itís important to address our long-standing issues before we turn into the living embodiment of them.

(one of my fave quotes from the interview, I'm SO glad she's addressed the squad properly)

Family Illness:
QUOTE
Iíve had to learn how to handle serious illness in my family. Both of my parents have had cancer, and my mom is now fighting her battle with it again. Itís taught me that there are real problems and then thereís everything else. My momís cancer is a real problem. I used to be so anxious about daily ups and downs. I give all of my worry, stress, and prayers to real problems now.
(Andrea's cancer returning cry.gif cry.gif)

Countdowns:
QUOTE
I make countdowns for things Iím excited about. When Iíve gone through dark, low times, Iíve always found a tiny bit of relief and hope in getting a countdown app (theyíre free) and adding things Iím looking forward to. Even if theyíre not big holidays or anything, itís good to look toward the future. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed in the now, and itís good to get some perspective that life will always go on, to better things.

(as JohnJames said, TRIGGERED)

On Kim:
QUOTE
I learned that disarming someoneís petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh. In my experience, Iíve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously. A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than Iíve ever felt in my life, but I canít tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans. Itís the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a trollís hateful Instagram comment with ďlol.Ē It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all Iíll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.
On Politics:
QUOTE
Iím finding my voice in terms of politics. I took a lot of time educating myself on the political system and the branches of government that are signing off on bills that affect our day-to-day life. I saw so many issues that put our most vulnerable citizens at risk, and felt like I had to speak up to try and help make a change. Only as someone approaching 30 did I feel informed enough to speak about it to my 114 million followers. Invoking racism and provoking fear through thinly veiled messaging is not what I want from our leaders, and I realized that it actually is my responsibility to use my influence against that disgusting rhetoric. Iím going to do more to help. We have a big race coming up next year.


The Last Lesson:
My mom always tells me that when I was a little kid, she never had to punish me for misbehaving because I would punish myself even worse. Iíd lock myself in my room and couldnít forgive myself, as a five-year-old. I realized that I do the same thing now when I feel Iíve made a mistake, whether itís self-imposed exile or silencing myself and isolating. Iíve come to a realization that I need to be able to forgive myself for making the wrong choice, trusting the wrong person, or figuratively falling on my face in front of everyone. Step into the daylight and let it go.
(inc. this because Swifties think the last sentence is a song lyric. Also her ending the piece on let it go *.*)

On Fashion:
Fashion is all about playful experimentation. If you donít look back at pictures of some of your old looks and cringe, youíre doing it wrong. See: Bleachella.
(Screaming at her dragging that horrible Bleachella look laugh.gif)
