Greetings Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy that can at least claim he has asked one question directly at the Sparkly Dressed, we’re just hoping we can have a full interview one day. Yeah, right. We all know that’s as close as I’ll ever get. Like ever. I don’t want to mislead you, I’m super thankful to everyone who made that hangout happen! I know there’s a huge amount of fans of hers that have never gotten that close. The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar (see she’s playing it right there) played at Harvey Mudd College on October 15.

UK’s The Guardian, who probably had like their names on nifty press passes and everything, had a chance to conduct an extensive interview with the Princess in Red. It’s a really well written article. I am so impressed because they asked deep questions and really got her to open up. Here’s some highlights.

This is the Enchantress talking about moments in time that she likes to capture with music:

“I’m really intrigued by that. Whether it’s taking a photograph, or painting a picture with your words that make a song as vivid as a photograph. I’ve always felt music is the only way to give an instantaneous moment the feel of slow motion. To romanticise it and glorify it and give it a soundtrack and a rhythm.”

About the passing of time:

“I think that one thing I’m really afraid of is … that magic doesn’t last,” she says. “That butterflies and daydreams and love, all these things that I hold so dear, are going to leave some day. I haven’t had a relationship that’s lasted for ever. I only know about them starting and ending. Those are my fears. I spend a lot of time balancing between faith and disbelief.”

And fairytales according to the Queen of Sparks?

“A fairytale is an interesting concept. There’s ‘happily ever after’ at the end, but that’s not a part of our world. Everything is an ongoing storyline and you’re always battling the complexities of life. But what I got from fairytales, growing up, was a beautiful daydream. I’m glad I had the craziest imagination and believed in all sorts of things that don’t exist.”
