But let’s start with the look.
Fans of Swift will open May’s edition of Vogue to find a very different Taylor.
The singer songwriter appears inside the magazine with bleached locks styled into a long bob evoking an effortless catwalk glamour.
The look is echoed on the cover where Swift’s ruby red lipstick pops against the background.
The accompanying interview presents a woman evolving in the public eye.
Swift shared some details of her love life with boyfriend of 12 months DJ Calvin Harris, and her plans for the immediate future.
But while she is open about her aspirations she says she is hesitant to share too much about her current relationship with Harris having been burned by the media’s constant speculation about who she is dating.
“I’m in a magical relationship right now.” Swift said.
“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.”
She used the interview to voice her frustration at the way she had previously been portrayed by the public as a voracious single woman who ate up boyfriends and then spat them out.
“You know, I went out on a normal amount of dates in my early 20s, and I got absolutely slaughtered for it,” Swift said.
