Entering Her 30s, Taylor Swift Says She Will No Longer Use Her Body as an “Exercise of Control”

Advice

After a transformative year, Taylor Swift is ready to enter a new decade with a healthier outlook. The singer, who turns 30 on Dec. 13, recently spoke about societal pressures and her body image in an introspective video interview with British Vogue Editor in Chief Edward Enninful following her cover story for the magazine. “I’ve heard really good things about your 30s. Feeling a bit more secure . . . a bit,” Taylor said.

“I’m a woman, I’m not a coat hanger.”

Elaborating on her excitement heading into her 30s, Taylor said, “I now can really recognize and diagnose toxic messages being sent to me by society, by culture about my body.” She added, “I’m a woman, I’m not a coat hanger. I need to feel healthy in my life, and I need to take pleasure in food, and I need to not use my body as an exercise of control when I feel out of control in my life.”

Taylor’s candid comments mirror something similar she said in an interview with Elle earlier this year. “I think a lot of us push the boundaries of dieting, but taking it too far can be really dangerous,” she said at the time. “There is no quick fix. I work on accepting my body every day.”
