Taylor Swift has conquered the world with her amazing music and now she is all set to enthrall the fans with her impeccable acting skills in the upcoming movie “Cats.” Though the trailers for the movie have been ridiculed by many on social media, Swift says she absolutely loves being part of the project.
In an interview with British Vogue, the 29-year-old musician revealed that she had an amazing time while shooting the movie because she absolutely adored the “weirdness” of it. The “Shake It Off” hitmaker further stated that she might not get an opportunity to portray a character like this on the screen again, so she enjoyed every bit of it.
“I really had an amazing time with ‘Cats.’ I think I loved the weirdness of it. I loved how it felt I’d never get another opportunity to be like this in my life,” Swift said.
The movie, based on the stage musical of the same name by Andrew Lloyd Webber, revolves around a tribe of cats called the Jellicles who must decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.
The trailers of the movie have garnered mixed responses from the viewers. Although Swift had nothing to say about the negative feedback, her co-stars have been really vocal about the weirdness of the movie. In July, while making an appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Idris Elba admitted that he doesn’t even know what the movie is about.
Meanwhile, the “Lover” hitmaker also discussed the importance of owning the rights of her own creation.
The ten-time Grammy award-winning artist emphasized the importance of owning what someone wrote because it is really important for a writer to fight for what he or she has made. “Even if you are not a natural writer, you should try to involve yourself in the messages you are sending,” Swift explained.
For the uninitiated, Swift recently ranted on Twitter informing her fans that Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun would not allow her to perform her old songs. The “Lover” hitmaker’s update pointed out the announcement that American Music Awards would be honoring her with the Artist of the Decade award and her plans of performing a medley of her hit songs.
However, Borchetta and Braun prohibited her from performing her old songs on television, claiming that they (Borchetta and Braun) would be re-recording her music first. But Swift came to an agreement with Borschetta and Braun and performed some of her iconic hits at the AMAs.
In related news, Swift is all set to receive Billboard’s first-ever Woman of the Decade award at the Billboard’s Women in Music event on Dec. 12 . The music industry chart announced that the musician will be receivind the prestigious trophy for her success in her career that includes five number one albums on Billboard 200 and many more achievements.
