Taylor Swift Explains How She Avoided Child Star Pitfalls

“It’s really important to grow up as you are the age that you are,” she says.

We’ve seen lots of child stars end up turning to heavy use of drugs or alcohol to deal with stresses of early fame. But not Taylor Swift.

Why not?

“When I was 16, putting out my first album, I got a lot of questions early on of like, ‘Are you gonna grow up too fast? Are you gonna be a train wreck? What’s gonna happen?’” Taylor told reporters recently.

“And what I kind of gathered from all that is that it’s really important to grow up as you are the age that you are. Just for me personally, that’s a priority,” she said.

“So, I feel like when I was 18, I was 18. And when I was 20, I was 20, and now I’m 23, and I’m just trying to kind of live my best version of being 23. . . . So, wish me luck.”

Good luck! So far, so good.
