“I’ve always been an easily excitable person. I am also easily hurt, but that’s another story for another time. Let’s just say I’m easily moved. A few years ago I realized that being easily moved isn’t necessarily normal in my line of work, or in this cynical world we live in.”

“You know, everybody has different priorities as an artist. Every woman has different things that make them feel strong and powerful.

I appreciate girls who sing about whatever they want, because that’s what they want to sing about.” — Taylor Swift, Glamour UK
