I think that it’s important style-wise, sound-wise, lyrically, to change and to grow. And one thing that has been really important to me is to grow up naturally.
I put out my first album when I was 16 and I’ve always worn a considerable amount of clothing. I’m not much for nudity or showing too much. Because I just don’t necessarily feel like it’s necessary. But if there’s a dress that I feel is incredibly fashionable and it’s a little more low-cut, I’m 23 and I feel like it’s okay to wear that.
If I want to wear shorts on-stage, one time I wore shorts on stage for the first time and the press articles were like ‘Taylor gets edgy’. And I’m like … I’m wearing shorts. So sometimes you feel like it’s a little bit too speculated on. But I think taking little chances and risks is important.
