Taylor Swift, 30, spoke frankly about publicity, attitudes towards fame and romance with Joe Alvin in a conversation with the legendary Paul McCartney for Rolling Stone magazine. During the interview, Taylor touched upon the theme that inspired her to create the song “Peace”. According to her, the track “is rooted in her personal life.”
“I know how scary it can be when you really fall in love and meet someone, especially if he leads a very down-to-earth, normal life,” admitted Swift. She added that it is one thing to constantly monitor and look from the outside at oneself, it is another thing to keep track of another person at the same time is unbearably difficult. Nevertheless, any careless movement – and now “20 photographers on the street in the bushes” and “a fake strange headline in the news.”
Then McCartney asked if Taylor’s boyfriend was aware of this constant struggle. Swift replied in the affirmative, noting that they were trying to maintain privacy together to find “pieces of normalcy” in life.
“Stella McCartney always told me that she had a normal childhood, which she could hope for under the given circumstances,” Swift cited the example of Paul’s daughter.
