Taylor: I Find It Easy To Keep My Clothes On

Taylor Swift has no problem baring her soul, but baring her body is another story.
The Red singer tells Glamour magazine that she's never really felt the need to strip down. "I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have," she admits. "For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off."
The 24-year-old singer plans on putting herself out there once again with her new album, but these songs could be a little different than what her fans are expecting. "I'm not trying to shed my skin. I'm trying to be a new version of the person I've been my whole life. That's what's held my fans and me together. For a group of millions, it's odd how close I feel to them."
Swift does confess that it's hard to stay focused on her music and not let the tabloids get to her. "I'm careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don't have the option of having thick skin." She adds, "As a writer you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet criticizing every single thing about you. If you're me."
