Taylor Swift: No Regrets, ‘I Made Those Choices, I Did That’

Pop princess Taylor Swift covers the June issue of Elle in a dazzling Dior Haute Couture bodysuit and boots. She opened up to interviewer and BFF Tavi Gevinson about having no regrets in life, not even her fashion choices as a teen.
“I’m not going to sit there and say, ‘Oh, I wish I hadn’t had corkscrew-curly hair and worn cowboy boots and sundresses to awards shows when I was 17; I wish I hadn’t gone through that fairy-tale phase where I just wanted to wear princess dresses to awards shows every single time.’ I made those choices. I did that.”

Swift said those choices were part of growing up, and she was the one in charge. “It wasn't some committee going, ‘You know what Taylor needs to be this year?’”
“I feel no need to burn down the house I built by hand,” Swift said when asked if she worried she would do or say anything out of character. “I can make additions to it. I can redecorate, but I built this.”

“So with ‘1989,' I feel like we gave the entire metaphorical house I built a complete renovation, and it made me love the house even more, but still keeping the foundation of what I’ve always been.”
