Being a world famous celebrity can certainly have its downside.
"At the end of the day, I can’t be ungrateful, because I chose this," she told the magazine. "But sometimes -– sometimes –- you don’t want to have a camera pointed at you.”
Swift, 24, said even in the confines of her own home or in other places that should be private, she feels a bit exposed because she's a celebrity.
“There’s someone whose entire job it is to figure out things that I don’t want the world to see," she said. "They look at your career, they look at what you prioritize, and they try to figure out what would be the most revealing or hurtful. Like, I don’t take my clothes off in pictures or anything –- I’m very private about that."
"So it scares me how valuable it would be to get a video of me changing. It’s sad to have to look for cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms. I don’t walk around naked with my windows open, because there’s a value on that," she added.
That lack of privacy even invades Swift's very public dating life.
“I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime," admitted Swift, who famously writes songs about her exes. "And I’m just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore. I don’t like seeing slide shows of guys I’ve apparently dated. I don’t like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at award shows. I don’t like it when headlines read ‘Careful, Bro, She’ll Write a Song About You,’ because it trivializes my work. And most of all, I don’t like how all these factors add up to build the pressure so high in a new relationship that it gets snuffed out before it even has a chance to start."
And with that, Swift has a simple solution, "I just don’t date.”
