Taylor Swift Thinks You Could Probably Use a Break from Her

"The public could change their minds about me tomorrow."

Taylor Swift has been positively everywhere these days, bringing every celebrity known to man along with her on her world tour. And she knows all that attention might have made some people sick of her.

The unstoppable singer has been opening up about the nature of her mega-stardom, and she's refreshingly self-aware about it all. In an interview with NME, she says she plans on laying low for a while after her tour ends in December. "I think I should take some time off. I think people might need a break from me," she said. "I'm going to…I don't know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don't know." 

Swift has been making the magazine rounds lately (she even made her GQ debut), and elaborated on the nature of her fame to Vogue Australia. "I am so lucky that people seem to like me right now but in no way, shape or form is it a permanent thing," she said. "The public could change their minds about me tomorrow. Things are good right now but I'm never going to be stupid, foolish, or ignorant enough to think I have control over the public." 

But even though she's aware that her fame might not last forever, she's relishing every moment. She told NME that despite the lack of privacy and having her work "misunderstood," she wouldn't trade it for the world. "Playing stadiums... walking down the street... I'd choose playing stadiums," she said. And who can argue with that?
