Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift Refuses To Read About Herself

Taylor Swift stays happy by refusing to read stories about herself in gossip columns.
The country star often sees her name in a headline but insists she has no idea what is being written about her as she has vowed not to pore over newspapers and magazines.
In a web chat with fans this week (beg13Aug12), Swift was asked whether she cares about the public's misconceptions of her, and she replied, "(I don't know). That lets me live in a place that's happier and less self-aware. I mean, I get to be self-aware in this living room and talking to you, but not aware of what the headlines are about me right now. It's kind of like placing a higher priority on just being really happy, rather than being really super hyper-aware of the details of what people think of me right now..."
Swift goes on to reveal she stopped reading about herself after finding so many inaccurate details in reports, adding, "I just don't want to see anything that's inaccurate. Because a lot of times what you'll see is like, 'She was hanging out with so-and-so,' and then it's a picture of somebody else. I guess I'm just very detail-oriented where I'm like, 'That's not the right ID of that person.'
"If you read too many things about yourself that are a little bit incorrect, you start just kind of like obsessing over what people think about you."
