Taylor Swift is the cover girl for the December 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
The 22-year-old, who’s busy promoting her new album, Red, chats with the mag about things like relationships to her upcoming tour.
Check out some highlights below from her interview:
On her upcoming Red tour: “I didn’t think I could be any more excited about my RED album, but then I start thinking about how I’m going to put the new show together for The RED Tour. I have so many ideas about how to really bring this music to life, and I can’t wait to share the new show with all my fans!”
On what she won’t tolerate in a relationship: “I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing: it’s a common-sense thing…I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.”
On what she needs in a relationship: “I need that unexplainable spark…I just need to see someone and feel Oh, no, uh-oh. It’s only happened a few times in my life, but I feel like if I was gonna be with someone forever, it would be because I saw them and I thought, Oh, no.”
On whether she can imagine doing anything else other than music: “Being a mom full time, doing everything for my kids, having a bunch of them. One day, I’m sure. But that’s the only other thing that could be as thrilling for me as doing this.”
On the best relationship advice she’s received: “Jay Leno told me, ‘It’s easy. Just marry your conscience. Marry the one who wants to make you a better person.'”
On if her house was on fire and could only save one thing, what it would be: “[My] cat. She’s the only one who understands me. And she’s so funny looking.”
