Taylor Swift has a reputation for being America's sweetheart and while she has no problem with this title, she shared in a new interview that sometimes the pressure to live up to such high expectations can get to her and even gives her major anxiety.
"If you let your anxiety get the better of you, like everybody's waiting for you to really mess up, then you'll be done," Taylor said. "A lot of the time I call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and that matter. It's not about trying to be perfect. Not to try and sound like the good witch in The Wizard Of Oz, but I want to do good things with what I have. I don't think my brain could cook up shocking things for the sake of being shocking."
Taylor is fully aware no one is perfect, including herself, but at the end of the day, she still wants to be a good person who helps others. And her mom is there to help her whenever she just needs to vent, and knowing Taylor turns to her mom when she's stressed is actually really sweet and totally relatable.
Along with this candid interview, Tay rocked a daring new look on the cover as well, showing off a bright purple color that is a big departure from her classic red shade.
Her icy blue eyes really pop with her eye makeup and her vibrantly printed jacket too.
