Taylor Swift has admitted that she has no regrets about the break down of her past relationships and subsequent stories written about them as they have all led to her greatest career triumphs.
Speaking to ASOS magazine, the 24-year-old superstar revealed that she believes without the drama that seems to follow her just about everywhere she goes, her music probably wouldn’t be as good.
She said: “If my life had been turbulence free, no bumps in the road at all, maybe my music would be more beige.
“Maybe the stadiums wouldn’t be so full and the mantle would be a little more empty.
“As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons and sometimes my greatest career triumphs.”
You’ve got to hand it to her, the girl can certainly turn a dire situation into a aurally pleasing one.
Although Taylor does merit the ups and downs in her life for her success, she is currently living a drama free existence – opting for spending time with her girlfriends over boyfriends.
You may have noticed, however, that Taylor’s friends (Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, and Carly Kloss to name but a few) all have something in common with her – vast success.
“My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well,” Taylor explained.
“A lot of ‘celebrities’ surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal.
“When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friend’s will think.
They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life.”
