Taylor Swift says being a pop star is ‘not that hard’

Taylor Swift is totally lame”It’s not that hard, I’m telling you now it’s really not,” the 25-year-old insisted to a BBC Radio 1 interviewer. “Sometimes I really don’t think it’s that hard at all.” The Grammy Award-winning singer — who made her debut Tuesday on Forbes’ annual list of the world’s 100 Most Powerful Women — is currently on a world tour to support her blockbuster album “1989,” which has moved more than 7.5 million records worldwide. “When I was starting out I’d go on tour for three months and I was gone for three months. It’s made out to be harder than it is,” she says. “I do have to leave the cats behind when I leave the country, which is the hardest part.” The “Bad Blood” singer kicked off her 1989 world tour earlier this month in Tokyo. When she was criticised for having too many boyfriends, for writing too many songs about her boyfriends, and when her fans were dismissed as pop-obsessed airheads? Swift, 25, will be performing her over-the-top show multiple times each week across four continents through December, but maintains that she’s still not over the exhausting experience of touring.

In fact, the exhaustion is her favorite part. “That’s the best part of this – when you walk off stage and you’re drenched in sweat and you’re tired and your legs hurt … it feels like you’re really working for the job,” she says. “It’s nice to feel tired after a show. But she started to achieve international stardom after she became the first country music artist to win an MTV Video Music Award in 2009, when Kanye West infamously interrupted her acceptance speech. Swift once admitted that she likes to surreptitiously check up on her ex partners. “In my spare time I like to drive past my ex-boyfriends’ houses,” she said. “I’m not like throwing eggs – I just like to check up on them. Everybody does that – it’s just that nobody admits to it!” Damn straight. (For those who don’t live near their exes houses, I’m sure you’ve done a fair amount of Facebook stalking.) It’s not cool to admit to such behaviour, just as Swift’s classic good looks and conventional dress sense aren’t especially fashionable. Her latest record-breaking video, Bad Blood, features some of her illustrious showbiz friends, including Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham and Kendrick Lamar.

Swift seemed to have managed to make genuine friends in the most backstabbing world of all – Hollywood – and she looks like she’s having fun while she’s there.
