Legendary singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell recently said in an interview that she'd put the kibosh on a movie that would have starred Taylor Swift as her. We suppose that makes it even less likely that Taylor will be able to fulfill one of her dreams: doing a duet with Mitchell.
In the new issue of Southern Living magazine, Taylor is asked who her dream duet partners would be. She replies, "Chris Martin [of Coldplay] or Joni Mitchell -- but I think so highly of them, I'd never want to ask."
Taylor also discusses the changes she's made in her personal life, whereby she's decided to put dating on hold and just revel in herself and her friends.
"I am obsessed with being a good friend, a good sister, a good daughter, and devoting my attention to the people that really are closest to me. I'm living my life on my own terms," she tells the magazine. "I don't ever feel lonely when I'm alone, because I have a lot of little things that make me happy. I love coming home to my cats. I love watching Friends marathons late at night or dropping into a Google or Wikipedia rabbit hole and learning things about the history of whatever.”
She adds, "I recommend to all my friends that they be alone for a while. When you're in love, or dating someone, you filter your life decisions through their eyes. When you spend a few years being who you are, completely unbiased, you can figure out what you actually want."
Taylor also discusses how important her female friends -- who include the likes of Lorde, Emma Stone, Lena Dunham and Selena Gomez -- are to her new life.
"I feel very lucky to say that my life is full of really intelligent and passionate women. The one common thread among all my closest girlfriends is individuality and my ability to trust them," she explains. "It's important to surround yourself with people who have proven that trust over and over again.”
