Taylor Swift's vision of love isn't what it used to be.
The singer-songwriter graces the cover of Lucky magazine and opens up about whether or not she believes in fairy-tale romances anymore.
"Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing," she explained, adding that she's since changed her ways. "Not in those simple terms…I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there's always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that's it: Nothing's difficult after that.
"But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don't have them."
T.Swift did say that when she finds the next big love of her life, he's got stiff competition with her beverage of choice.
"Coffee's a big part of my life. Skinny caramel lattes are a daily thing that I get excited about and I never stop being excited about."
She continued, "So if I could just find one person who I felt that way about—the way I feel about coffee—then I think I'd be in a content relationship."
The "Blank Space" crooner added that her close knit pals—like Lena Dunham, Karlie Kloss, and Lorde—are what help keep her grounded.
"A lot of my life has to be protected, just because of the circumstances I'm under. But with my friends there's absolutely nothing held back. Every detail of every story is told. There's no editing."
But no matter who's in her inner circle, dealing with the constant limelight and fame never comes as second nature for the pop star.
"I wanted to make music. I didn't know that came with this expectation that your whole life is owned by the general public and everything you do is dissected, scrutinized and questioned," she shared.
"Because [people with] a sunny outlook are a lot easier to deal with, be around, befriend and handle than people who are bitter about it. People who are, like, complaining about the life of being a celebrity. It's a little irritating."
