Taylor Swift Covers ‘InStyle’ UK, Worries About Becoming “Awful,” “Intolerable” & “Alone”

Hey! Here’s an idea: Let’s take a break from slamming Taylor Swift for her egregiously decontextualized quote about how Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will burn in hell from yesterday’s Vanity Fair cover, and instead, talk about her recently debuted InStyle UK cover, where not only does she look stunning, but also gives a heartbreaking and revealing interview about how she allows intimacy in her life because she doesn’t want to end up a celebrity cliche, even though it ends up getting her completely savaged by the press, which is literally awful and depressing. All aboard the train to Sadtown!

“What I worry about,” Swift told the mag, “is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centered, vain human being. My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don’t wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine, just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody. The typical Hollywood sad cliche of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone.

“That’s my fear,” she continued. “And that’s why I live my life the way I live my life because I’d so much rather feel everything than end up like that.”

In related news, we’re sad now.
