Asked how she feels about her newfound stardom, and the difficulties that come along with it, Taylor Swift told Billboard :
Balancing all this is not hard. I mean what do I have to complain about? I have the best time in the world. I’m so lucky. When I go out in public and I go to a mall, yeah it’s a lot different than it was two years ago, but it’s a beautiful kind of different. It’s the kind of different that I’ve wanted my entire life. I’m a strong believer that if you work your entire life for something, and you work so hard and you want this one thing so much, you should never complain once you get it.
Good for her. That used to be the country music norm, but it sounds refreshing when compared to the attitude a massively successful act like Rascal Flatts has because they don’t win awards, when they should be being thankful for all of the success they’ve had. It’s nice to see a young girl who’s on top right now has perspective on how lucky she is.
