Taylor Swift Doesn’t Drink Much Alcohol Since ‘It Doesn’t Taste Like Candy or Sparkles’

Taylor Swift was chosen as a ‘Woman We Love’ by Esquire staffers, an accolade she was happy to receive. She touched on several topics, such as the length of the title of ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ (“it’s very final, it’s very aggressive and it’s not subtle”) and the fact that she rarely drinks alcohol because it’s not sweet “like candy or sparkles.”

When the mag mentioned it was doing a piece on Scotch, and asked if that appealed to her, Swift replied, “I don’t drink much alcohol. If it doesn’t taste like candy or sparkles, I usually don’t drink it.” She does drink wine – only sometimes — since it makes her feel classy. Wine. Pearls. Twinsets. Cardigans. A-line skirts. Those are other ways that Swift is classy!

The mag opened up a can of worms, asking if she is worried about peaking at the tender age of 22. Anyone who knows T. Swizzle knows she worries, like, nonstop. “I’m always worried about everything. Like spiders. Right now, I’m worried about that,” she said. Spider bites can be nasty things, and in extreme cases, they can necrotize your flesh.

Arachnophobia aside, Swift isn’t concerned about running out of breakups to base her songs on, since she did write some non-breakup songs on ‘Red.’ “This is breaking news, but there are a few happy songs on this album,” she said. “I do explore the emotion every once in a while. I’d like to think you don’t stop being creative once you get happy. My ultimate goal is to end up being happy. Most of the time.”

The confessional singer does not warn her BFs that they could end up in a song, and at this point, does she really need to? It’s common knowledge that if you wrong T. Swift, she’s going to sing about it – loudly — in a song that will likely go on to be a massive hit.

“If they stick around, then great, they’re kind of like signing a release form,” she joked.
