Taylor Talks to Billboard About Her Big Wins at the BBMAs!

BBMAs22Performance

Taylor talked with Billboard Magazine days after her 8 wins at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Check out the interview below!

Country superstar talks about winning eight trophies and her personal highlights of BBMA night.

The biggest stars in music lit up the stage of Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena for the Billboard Music Awards. But no one beamed brighter than Taylor Swift, who netted eight awards. Accepting her gold statue for top artist, Swift gave props to the 3.7 million fans who purchased “Red” and drove her across-the-board victories: “Thank you for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions,” she said. “You are the longest and best relationship I’ve had.”

She also premiered her new single, “22,” in one of the night’s most spirited performances, which kicked off in her dressing room and wound its way through the audience before hitting the stage. Ditching her glittering blue Zuhair Murad mini-dress for a unicorn-emblazoned T-shirt and shorts, Swift sang of the joys of being her tender age, surrounded by a full posse (including members of two mainstay Vegas acts, Cirque du Soleil and Jabbawockeez). Billboard checked in with Swift just days after the show, as she was already back in the thick of her current U.S. tour.

Billboard: You were the night’s big winner. What was the highlight of the night for you personally?

Swift: For me the highlight of the night was standing onstage with my 15 breathless, beaming dancers after we finished our performance. We were all standing together and got to look out into a crowd that was giving us a standing ovation. It was a wonderful feeling.

What performances stood out to you? Was there anyone who surprised or moved you in a way you didn’t expect?

I loved Ed Sheeran’s performance because I get to see him move crowds with just an acoustic guitar and his voice every night on tour, and to watch him do that on a nationally televised scale made me so happy.

Who were you excited to see and meet at the show?

I was just excited that a bunch of my friends were there like Selena [Gomez and Ed]. It turned the night into more of a dance party than a high-pressure media event.

Madonna was the top touring artist. As someone who spends a lot of time on the road, have you learned anything by what she’s done in her career?

One element of Madonna’s career that really takes center stage is how many times she’s reinvented herself. It’s easier to stay in one look, one comfort zone, one musical style. It’s inspiring to see someone whose only predictable quality is being unpredictable.

There were also artists on hand who are part of the new wave of younger performers taking hold at radio — Selena Gomez performed, and Ariana Grande presented. What advice would you give them?

I never give advice unless someone asks me for it. One thing I’ve learned, and possibly the only advice I have to give, is to not be that person giving out unsolicited advice based on your own personal experience. I’ve always had a lot of older people giving me advice because I’m young, and in the end, it all comes down to who you want to be remembered as. Just be that.

How did you celebrate your victorious night?

We had a giant dinner at Nobu for all of my bandmates, dancers and friends. It seemed like everyone was there. Ed, Selena, Austin Mahone . . . We were all just laughing together and rejoicing in a really fun evening.

How late were you out? Where did you go and who did you hang with?

I flew back to L.A. that night, so I was only out till about 1 a.m. Then I got home, said “hi” to my cat, then fell asleep in seconds.

You gave a heartfelt thank-you to your fans and acknowledged them as being “the longest and best relationship I’ve had.” How would you describe that relationship? And how did it feel to have the opportunity to thank them publicly as you accepted artist of the year?

I loved being able to thank my fans for this life they’ve given me. Being on tour, I get a nightly reminder of how lucky I am to get to stand on giant stages and sing for sold-out crowds. Now I have so many girls my age coming up to me and saying, “I’ve listened to you for seven years.” It’s crazy to me that we’ve been in each other’s lives that long and it still feels new. But hey, I guess that’s what real love feels like.

Taylor Announces New Perfume!

TaylorbyTaylorSwift

Yesterday, Taylor announced that she will be releasing her new perfume at the end of June. The perfume is called ‘Taylor’ by Taylor Swift.

Between the world toursKeds partnershipawards show sweeps and Instagramming her cat, we don’t know how Taylor Swift finds time to come out with new fragrances.

And yet, she does. The singer follows up herWonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted scents with Taylor by Taylor Swift, a scent which Swift calls “a mix of a lot of things: It’s sweet, it’s sophisticated, it draws you in. It’s really my way of translating classic, yet modern, into a perfume.”

Swift says that each of her fragrances has reflected a time in her life, so this one is a little more grown up. “My first two fragrances were more about fairytales,” she says, “but this fragrance is more about my own style, so I wanted the name to be more personal.”

The bottle was designed to reflect Swift’s “retro with a modern flair” style and features a ring of pearls as a nod to her favorite jewelry. “Pearls are the one fashion accessory that never seems to go out of style,” the singer shares. “I keep a strand in my purse, and throw them on whenever I need to dress up my outfit.”

Ultimately, Swift says, she wants her fans to be able to channel her style wherever they go, with the help of the perfume’s mix of fruits, florals and woodsy scents. “I hope that wearing this fragrance makes fans feel that any look can be classic and chic,” she says.

Taylor by Taylor Swift will be available in Ulta stores and Ulta.com in late June.
