The ‘Lover‘ era is here, and we are WIGLESS.
Taylor Swift is back and better than ever; and that’s not an opinion, it’s all facts. The songstress sat down with Vogue Magazine for their September 2019 issue and got candid on some pretty big topics; including sexism, getting political and speaking for LGBTQ+ rights, being “cancelled,” why this album might be her favorite, and so much more.
“There are so many ways in which this album feels like a new beginning,” Taylor says on the new album. “This album is really a love letter to love, in all of its maddening, passionate, exciting, enchanting, horrific, tragic, wonderful glory.”
Speaking on why she decided to take a stance on LGBTQ+ rights and politics, she says it hit her when she was in the car with a good friend and was asked a very “shocking” question. “Maybe a year or two ago, Todrick and I are in the car, and he asked me, ‘what would you do if your son was gay?,’ the fact that he had to ask me . . . shocked me and made me realize that I had not made my position clear enough or loud enough,” she says.
She continued, “If my son was gay, he’d be gay. I don’t understand the question. If he was thinking that, I can’t imagine what my fans in the LGBTQ community might be thinking. It was kind of devastating to realize that I hadn’t been publicly clear about that.”
