Taylor Swift Afraid of Ending Up Being 'Awful' and 'Alone,' Mocked by Chelsea Handler
Taylor Swift reveals her biggest fear. The country music singer, who recently slammed Tina Fey and Amy Poehler over their "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son" joke, says in another magazine interview that she is worried that one day, she ends up being "awful," "intolerable" and "alone."
"What I worry about 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," the country music singer/songwriter opens up to InStyleUK for her cover story.
"Lying 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," she adds.
"That's my fear," she continues. "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."
Swift additionally comments on the mixed responses she got for her songwriting regime, saying her exes can write songs about her if they want to. "If I'm gonna write songs about my exes they can write about me. That's how it works," she reasons.
Elsewhere, Chelsea Handler mocks the 22-year-old Grammy winner. "My theory about Taylor Swift is that she's a virgin," Handler says when asked to comment about the singer by Andy Cohen. "Every guy thinks they're going to devirginize her, and they're not."
"Everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she's like, 'I'm not gonna do it.' And they're like, 'Oh, well, forget it. Then I don't want to date you,' " the TV host adds. "She's never going to get devirginized, ever, ever, ever, ever."
Handler, a friend of Katie Couric whom Swift professed her love for, also weighs in on the singer's "Hell" comment about Fey and Poehler, "I think that was a bold statement, but I'm not on anyone's side because I just don't care enough."
"I like that she's being that vociferous about something that she thinks they were out to get her. They were clearly making a joke just about her demeanor, which is embarrassing. I mean, she's just dated so many men," she continues.
Previously, Swift voiced her thoughts about mean girls to Vanity Fair, "You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved . . . that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.' "
Both Fey and Poehler have since commented on her serious reaction. Fey was surprised. Recalling her jokes at the Golden Globe Awards, the "30 Rock" star thought if anyone was going to be angry, it would have been "Avatar" director James Cameron.
Back then, Fey joked she didn't really know about "Zero Dark Thirty (2012)" controversy "but when it comes to torture, I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron," referring "the woman" to "Dark Thirty" helmer Kathryn Bigelow who was previously married to Cameron.
Poehler, meanwhile, kind of accepted her fate over Swift's "hell" comment. "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff," the "Parks and Recreation" actress told The Hollywood Reporter.
