I just don’t see myself in that way, you know. I have an aversion to lies. The truth is, you know, I have a very good job and I’m lucky to have it and it’s kind of a privileged position at times. I don’t take things in some other way. Just because I do movies doesn’t make me more important or less important than anyone else.
There’s a sense that we’re all ‘too’ something, and we’re all not enough… I hope we can be supportive of each other and try to really have each other’s backs, especially when we don’t know the whole story.
“Somebody once told me that you truly see who a person is when you tell them something they don’t want to hear. You truly see who a person is when you give them news that they weren’t expecting.And so to the country music community, when I told you that I had made a pop album and that I wanted to go explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace you accepted that with. I will never forget it.I’m so happy, so happy I learned to write songs in a town like Nashville. I’m so grateful that I learned what hard work is from my heroes who are all sitting here. And I’m so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music. I love you so much.” Taylor receving the Mileston Awards at the 50th Academy of Country Music.
