Taylor Swift names the singer she wants to model her career after

One icon looking up to another.

Taylor Swift is a Little Monster.

As part of her new cover story with Entertainment Weekly, Swift discusses why she admires Lady Gaga’s career and aspires to be more like her.

“When people think she’s gonna go one way, she goes the exact opposite,” the "ME!" singer explains.

And that includes working with icons that you wouldn't normally pair together.

“She did that Tony Bennett record and won a Grammy. And then she pivots and goes and wins a Golden Globe for 'American Horror Story: Hotel.' And then she pivots and does 'Joanne.' And then she pivots and wins an Oscar for 'A Star Is Born.'”

Swift is no stranger to a "pivot" to acting either. She was featured in blockbuster films like "The Giver" and has been featured on soundtracks like "Fifty Shades Darker."

“That’s so cool, that ability to be so capable in so many different worlds. There’s so much dexterity to her career,” she added.

Swift's also about to star in the movie musical adaptation of "Cats."

Mother Monster would be proud.
