‘Blank Space’ songstress Taylor Swift recently took time out of her busy schedule to talk openly with Time Magazine about a variety of topics.

Swift spoke about growing old gracefully, why it’s difficult to trust people after they hurt you and why she really isn’t keen on music streaming service Spotify.

The singer-songwriter is only in her 20s but already she’s thinking about growing older and how she’s going to keep herself relevant in the music industry as she moves on. She thinks females in particular face a hard time in her line of work and explained:

“I just struggle to find a woman in music who hasn’t been completely picked apart by the media, or scrutinised and criticised for ageing, or criticised for fighting ageing.

“It just seems to be much more difficult to be a woman in music and to grow older. I just really hope that I will choose to do it as gracefully as possible.” she added.

Recently Taylor took down her music from streaming service Spotify and left many wondering why. Bosses of the company have insisted that the star was being handsomely recompensed for her tracks, but it seems she wouldn’t agree.

Swift explained that she put her music on the service because she is “always up for trying something.” but wasn’t convinced in the end. She “didn’t like the way it felt,”

“I think there should be an inherent value placed on art. I didn’t see that happening, perception-wise, when I put my music on Spotify.” the songstress added.

Taylor also spoke in another interview with German magazine Jolie about how one of the most difficult things she’s had to do, is learn to trust those who have hurt her in the past.

She explained: “As an artist you have the choice: you can either cut yourself off and trust no one, or open up to people – like me. I like trusting others and telling my friends everything. My life wouldn’t be fun without them.”

Taylor went on to add that her priorities these days are now completely different and that her friends, family and her music all come first.
