(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift has a history of lost love and then writing songs about exes, but the pop star is all about being with her friends at the moment.
Swift, 24, spoke to Asos magazine for a story called "How to Be a Supergirl" and said when she is looking to get all dolled up, it's not for guys.
"When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friends will think," she said. "They are my No. 1 priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me, at this point in my life. But depending on the city I’m in and depending on the time of day and what mood I’m in, my choices are ever changing. That’s what keeps fashion exciting. You’re always coming from a different place of inspiration."
That doesn't mean Swift doesn't have plenty of advice when it comes to guys, dating and, especially, heartbreak.
"Fixing your heartbreak by getting into another relationship is not the way to live your life -- you need to live it on your terms for a while," she said. "Honestly, being in my twenties and only focusing on what I want, moving to New York because I wanted to, cutting my hair short because I wanted to, making all these decisions based on the direction I wanted to go, has been the most liberating thing I’ve done in my life. You can have love all around you without being in love, and find romance in your everyday life without being in a romantic relationship."
The singer also explained how her friendships -- she's often seen with supermodel Karlie Kloss and Grammy winner Lorde, among others -- are "real" and how that is an advantage as a celebrity.
"My friends are the kind of people who have their own lives and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well," she said. "A lot of 'celebrities' surround themselves with chic cling-ons who don’t have much of a job or a passion. They follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them. I’m really not interested in that kind of deal."
Finally, Swift revealed how her mistakes "have gotten me the greatest sense of clarity."
"As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons and sometimes my greatest career triumphs," she said.
