For someone who has collected quite the powerhouse of close friends, Taylor Swift certainly isn't into sitting at the popular kids' table.

Swift landed the cover of Fashion, Canada's No. 1 Fashion & Beauty Magazine and talked about how she's focusing less on romance and more on friendship:

When I was younger, I was just fascinated by romance and now the most important thing to me is the opinions of [my] sisterhood of friends.

"Celebrities surround themselves with people who don't know what they want and only have you to validate their lives – that's not interesting to me.

"You should not be threatened by women who are pretty and charismatic and good at what they do…my girlfriends have shaped me more in the past year and a half than any other factor."

"You'll never really feel like you're part of the 'in' crowd, but growing up means that matters to you less and less every day."

I do love it when celebrities call out the celebrity lifestyle. It's not like Taylor's picking out social outcasts or even vaguely unpopular people here, and I'm pretty sure that part about validating their lives is directed at least in part toward Katy Perry. But I'm glad she has her rag (and Bone) tag crew of ladies there for her. [Mirror]
