While the album’s lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“ is currently killing the charts, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter decided to slay the cover of Glamour Magazine‘s November 2012 issue as well.
Inside the issue she speaks on her friendships with Selena Gomez and Emma Stone, being misunderstood, carefully choosing her friends and much more. Take a look at a few excerpts below as well as pictures from the spread, shot by Ellen Von Unwerth.
On her friendships with Selena Gomez and Emma Stone:
“I met Emma when I was 17, and I met Selena when I was 18. So they’ve experienced all of this with me, and they’ve also experienced their own amazing success, and somehow through all of it, we’ve stayed close.”
On being misudnerstood:
“I think some people think it’s just apple pie and sunshine and sprinkles and ponies. Which is just funny. But I never feel the need to go out and make some grand statement that I’m dark and twisty and complicated, because I’m not that either. It’s just not as simple as ponies and rainbows, though I do love ponies and rainbows.”
On choosing her friends carefully:
“I think you can tell who’s a good person to be around, who makes you laugh, who’s fun, whom you can trust. And, yes, you’re going to get burned a few times, but I’d really rather get burned a few times than sit alone in that house with the curtains drawn. So God forbid this person you’re hanging out with gets a bit of validation out of the fact you’re famous. Is that the worst-case scenario? You know, it doesn’t seem that bad.”
