Taylor talks about her relationship with DJ and producer Calvin Harris in the Vogue interview. They have been dating for a little over a year. Taylor says the relationship is "magical." She says, "I'm just taking things as they come. I'm in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key ... this is the one thing that's been mine about my personal life."
Taylor also talked about being a target for false rumors and taking grief for her squad of female celebrity friends. She explained how some rumors are easier to dispel than others. Taylor says, "There are a lot of really easy ways to dispel rumors. If they say you are pregnant, all you have to do is continue to not be pregnant and not have a baby. If the rumor is that you have fake friendships, all you have to do is continue to be there for each other. And when we're all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, maybe somebody will look back and go, 'That was kind of ridiculous what we said about Taylor and her friends.'"
Taylor also talked about her childhood, her dreams and her mother's desire for her to be a horseback rider. She says, "That was kind of my mom's thing. She really wanted me to be a horseback rider, and I did it competitively until I worked up the nerve at age twelve to tell her I didn't really love it like she loved it. I just wanted to make music and do theater. So I've been a big disappointment."
As for her future she says she will always be writing songs but she doesn't know yet what she is going to do with the rest of her life. She has accomplished a great deal at a very young age. Taylor says, "This is the first time in ten years that I haven't known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened . . . I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something."
