“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It just little things like that, that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making choices you won’t regret.”
Taylor Swift interview with Billboard at the AMAs
Taylor: I'm slightly terrified for this year to end,
Taylor: I don't know. Cause I like this one.
Interviewer: Well, okay.
Taylor: I just get attached.
Interviewer: Yeah, it's hard cause you have to break up with the year.
Taylor: Then I have to write a song about it.
Taylor Swift: All the Awards.
Swift was being used as the model example of how to become bigger than country without forgetting your roots. How to occasionally leave the family but never do wrong by the family. She’s the example of the kid who leaves home for college, goes off to work elsewhere, finds some level of success, has new friends, but still comes home for the holidays as if things haven’t changed. And most importantly, as if she hasn’t changed.
