Taylor Swift is slaying on the September issue cover of Vanity Fair. She traded in her usual crop top and high waisted skirt for a more mature Hollywood look, and it really suits her (see what I did there??).

Inside the issue, Taylor talks about her many friendships and how her girl squad is “so much more important than some guy that it didn’t work out with.”

“We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people,” Taylor told Vanity Fair in the interview. “It’s almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us.”

We might even be able to take some friendship advice from Tay as she says, “If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.’

Clearly, Taylor Swift is someone you want on your #squad as she has even made amends with Kanye West. She reveals details of her newly found friendship:

“I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me—so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time,” Swift says. “I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. . . . And then Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”

Taylor also talks about how she stopped Apple from giving zero percent compensation to rights holder by writing a letter at 4 am.

“I wrote the letter at around four A.M.,” Swift says. “The contracts had just gone out to my friends, and one of them sent me a screenshot of one of them. I read the term ‘zero percent compensation to rights holders.’ Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and I’ll write a song and I can’t sleep until I finish it, and it was like that with the letter.”

And I know you are all dying to hear her dish about her BF, Calvin Harris. Unfortunately, she doesn’t mention him directly but she did tell Vanity Fair this, “I swore I would never ever get in another relationship if it meant changing who I was, or taking me out of that mode where my friends are everything to me.” So clearly Calvin is doing something right!
