While many believe that living life on the road is not an easy life, singer Taylor Swift says she thinks it’s: “not that hard. I’m telling you now, it’s really not.”
Taylor just kicked off her 1989 World Tour this month, and will be travelling all over the world performing her hit songs for sold-out crowds.
The singer reveals that now she’s playing her shows in stadiums, life is much easier than when she was playing smaller shows more frequently.
“Sometimes I really don’t think it’s that hard at all,” Taylor said during her interview on BBC Radio 1. “When I was starting out I’d go on tour for three months and I was gone for three months.”
“Now almost 10 years in, thank God we get to play bigger shows so I don’t have to play as many.”
Taylor continued, “If we’re playing stadiums, I’ll do two or three a week, not five shows a week. Then I get to fly home in between. It’s not that bad.”
On the bad side of touring, Taylor said: “I do have to leave my cats behind when I leave the country, which is the hardest part.”
Now that she’s back on the road promoting her hit album 1989, Taylor has revealed that she’s having a blast performing for her fans.
“The best part of this, when you walk off stage and you’re drenched in sweat and you’re tired and your legs hurt – it feels like you’re really working for the job,” she said.
“It’s nice to feel tired after a show. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m finally doing something!’”
Taylor’s next stop on her tour will be in Detroit for a show this Saturday (May 30), before heading off to Louisville, Kentucky and Cleveland, Ohio next Tuesday and Wednesday (June 2 & 3).
