— -- Taylor Swift has a confession: Being a pop star may look like a lot of work but it isn't.

"It's not that hard, I'm telling you now it's really not," the 25-year-old Grammy winner told British radio host Nick Grimshaw, according to the BBC. "Sometimes I really don't think it's that hard at all."

The "Style" singer admits that it's gotten easier as her star has risen.

"When I was starting out I'd go on tour for three months and I was gone for three months," she told Grimshaw. "Now almost 10 years in I thank God we get to play bigger shows so I don't have to play as many."

She explained: "If we're playing stadiums, I'll do two or three a week, not five shows a week, then I get to fly home in between. It's not that bad. It's not that hard. It's made out to be harder than it is."

There is one thing that's hard.

"I do have to leave the cats behind when I leave the country, which is the hardest part," she said of her furry friends, Olivia and Meredith.

The pop star, who is in the midst of a world tour for her latest album, "1989," is the first to say she's not afraid of a little hard work.

"When you walk off stage and you're drenched in sweat and you're tired and your legs hurt... It feels like you're really working for the job," she said about her favorite part of touring. "It's nice to feel tired after a show. I'm like 'Oh my God, I'm finally doing something.' I really like the feeling of: 'You know what? I've been busy. I deserve this watching two hours of TV at the end of the night.'"

And what does she like to watch?

"I like Friends because I've seen every episode, so it's like switching my brain off," she told Grimshaw. "I know exactly what they're about to say."
