2013 for Taylor Swift has been an incredibly successful year. She’s released a variety of singles, had huge success with her album ‘Red’ and embarked on a tour promoting the new record.
Last night (November 24th) at the 2013 American Music Awards (AMAs) the country singer walked away with four awards though she also confessed she is “terrified” for the year to draw to a close.
At the American Music Awards Taylor Swift managed to bag four awards including ‘Artist of the Year’, ‘Favourite Country Female Artist’, ‘Favourite Pop/Rock Female Artist’, and ‘Favourite Country Album for ‘Red”.
The star though confessed that she’s already working on the follow-up to ‘Red’ but while she has huge plans for next year she’s “slightly terrified for this year to end” because it will bring change:
“We got a lot already. There are probably seven or eight [songs] that I know I want on the record. It’s really ahead of schedule for me.”
“I’m just stoked because it’s already evolved into a new sound, and that’s all I wanted. And I would have taken two years to make that happen, but it just kind of happened naturally, so that’s all I could really ask for.”
One reporter also asked about the release of her new album and suggested that it could come in the final quarter of the year to which Taylor replied: “I think that’s a fair thing to expect.”
Taylor Swift also spoke with New York magazine recently and opened up about the media’s perception of her and her life and how she just has to deal with it and get on with things:
“There’s a spin on every single celebrity out there. I know that one of my spins is: ‘Oh, Taylor’s heartbroken. Oh, Taylor fell in love and the guy broke her heart.”
“She’s sad all the time, and lonely. I mean, they can say that all they want. Those are real feelings that every single person goes through. I think that it’s OK to be mad at someone who hurt you.”
“This isn’t about, like, the pageantry of trying to seem like nothing affects you. I’m a songwriter. Everything affects me.”
No matter how you look at it though, Taylor Swift is doing something right if she can walk out of an awards ceremony with four awards under her arm.
