In a cover story for the August issue of Glamour (on sale July 7), Taylor Swift opens up about her fan nightmares, her type of man, and how she's probably reading all those fan comments you surreptitiously post on her MySpace page. Click through to see some highlights, then check out the interview here.
On having nightmares only a pop-country princess' subconscious could conjure:
"I get really restless when I haven't worked for a day and a half. I have a recurring dream that people are lined up next to my bed, waiting for autographs and taking pictures of me!"
On taking a hands-on approach to her career:
"I've never felt like I needed to tone down being seen as a regular person. When I first started doing MySpace, I wrote my bio in the first person. I didn't want [it] to look like a publicity promo site, so I was the one doing all the commenting, and I was the one putting up the pictures and videos. I've approached my whole career like that — I don't see that ever changing."
She may not be a loner, Dottie, but she's still a rebel:
"For me, rebelling is done with words: I love to write honest songs that name real people, then get up onstage and live out those emotions in front of 15,000 people. Penciling in a night to get wasted is not something I want to do."
On her predilection for sharing the pants:
"I wouldn't want to date a pushover who would let me make all the plans and have all the control … I'd rather be with someone who has his own voice and passion and ambition."
She'll move into her own place, — after she plays in Beijing, that is:
"I still have lots of goals. I'd love to do a world tour. And at some point, I'd like to move out of my parents' house!"
