Taylor Swift has done a total 180 in her music life (and we’re definitely NOT complaining!). Just a few years ago, the blonde babe was a super country, banjo playing girly girl. Today, Tay’s a city girl with super-chic style… oh, and a mega popstar. She just revealed to Elle that she doesn’t regret her past life as a country music maven. “As far as the need to rebel against the idea of you, or the image of you: Like, I feel no need to burn down the house I built by hand. I can make additions to it. I can redecorate. But I built this,” she told Elle. “And so I’m not going to sit there and say, “Oh, I wish I hadn’t had corkscrew-curly hair and worn cowboy boots and sundresses to awards shows when I was 17; I wish I hadn’t gone through that fairy-tale phase where I just wanted to wear princess dresses to awards shows every single time.” Because I made those choices. I did that. It was part of me growing up. It wasn’t some committee going, “You know what Taylor needs to be this year?” And so with 1989, I feel like we gave the entire metaphorical house I built a complete renovation and it made me love the house even more—but still keeping the foundation of what I’ve always been.” Living with no regrets! We love your outlook on life, Tay!
