Feminist Taylor Swift Calls Out Celebrity Culture & Continues To Be Awesome
The new feminist Taylor Swift (and her super famous circle of friends) is apparently here to stay. It's no secret that the "Shake It Off" singer has a lot of powerful female friends — the woman has a room in her house basically designated for Karlie Kloss to stay in during sleepovers, guys. But her ever-rotating circle of BFFs is apparently more meaningful than you might think. Swift talked about the importance of her female friendships with Canada's Fashion magazine, and explained how she thinks celebrities have gotten it wrong when it comes to make friends.
Celebrities surround themselves with people who don't know what they want and only have you to validate their lives – that's not interesting to me," Swift said. "You should not be threatened by women who are pretty and charismatic and good at what they do.
You tell 'em, T-Swizzle.
Since Taylor Swift is, apparently, kind of over the whole dating thing, it seems that she's chosen instead to focus on her friendships. And given that her list of friends includes famous supermodels, award-winning actresses, and the some of the most popular female musicians in the world, Swift seems to be on top of her friendship game to say the least.
"My girlfriends have shaped me more in the past year and a half than any other factor," Swift said.
In recent months, Swift has been vocal about her new views on feminism. From Swift's support of Emma Watson's #HeForShe speech to explaining her friendship with Lena Dunham, Swift has gone from discussing her relationships interviews to promoting feminism.
Whether you're a fan of Swift or not, it's incredibly refreshing to see such a mainstream artist being loudly, proudly vocal about the beauty and importance of true feminism. And besides — successful, talented women supporting successful, talented woman, that's something we can all get behind, right?
