In the November 2012 issue of Glamour—the same issue that features Cindi Leive’s interview with President Obama—Taylor Swift opens up about John Mayer, her friendships with Emma Stone and Selena Gomez, and being misunderstood.
On John Mayer telling Rolling Stone that the song “Dear John” was about him: “How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about.”
On her friendships with Emma Stone and Selena Gomez: “I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they’ve experienced all of this with me, and they’ve also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we’ve stayed close.”
On being misunderstood: “I think some people think it’s just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I’m dark and twisty and complicated, because I’m not that either. It’s just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.”
