Taylor Swift Says She’s “Blindly Optimistic” and Takes Music Risks

Posted by PZ on January 23rd, 2013


Taylor Swift doesn’t believe in taking risks in her life normally, but when it comes to her music she allows herself to do things differently. She admits that she rarely takes fashion risks or risks in her personal life, and while some might get a thrill from putting their career on the line or saying outlandish things in interviews, she’s all about letting those risks develop musically:

“Different people take their chances in different ways, some people take fashion risks, or in their lives and what they say, or they give really edgy interviews. I leave the risks to my music. I let it speak from where my life is. I don’t take risks fashion-wise, I don’t take risks in the way I live my life. But I leave my risks to my music.”

Taylor admits she is blindly optimistic and never lets things get her down. She also has an adventurous side and loves to discover new things:

“I’m a Sagittarius, which means, you know, I’m blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I’m always up for adventure but also always want something new. Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence.”

Although Taylor is known for being in and out of relationships, she says she does crave independence but at the same time is infatuated with the concept of love:

“Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young, but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone.”
