Taylor Swift has opened up about her 'good-girl image', claiming that it's almost entirely accurate. In an interview set to air on Sunday's 60 Minutes show (November 20th, 2011), the country sensation acknowledged she is a "role model" to many aspiring musicians and explained why, after turning 21, she didn't fall into the party lifestyle, reports E! Online.
Swift, who has enjoyed unparalleled success in the country music genre in recent years, says she thinks of her fans every day, saying, "I definitely think about a million people when I'm getting dressed in the morning, and that's just part of my life now.I think it's my responsibility to know it and to be conscious of it". However, despite turning 21-years-old, the GRAMMY AWARD winner claims she's not going to use that as an excuse to go "off the rails" and spoke almost philosophically about her responsibilities, saying, "I'm 21 now, I do what I want. You raise your kids! But it's not the truth of it. The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation". When it comes to drinking, Swift revealed she'd tried alcohol but didn't consider herself a drinker, saying, "I'm not like, 'Man, it's my favorite thing to do,' and I don't drink to get drunk because that's just not cute". Unsurprisingly, she has no plans to try marijuana either, saying, "I just don't feel like it.And I don't want to smoke anything because I sing".
Taylor is listed in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records for the Fastest Selling Digital Album by a Female Artist (Speak Now). She is also holds the record for the most simultaneous U.S. Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist.
