Taylor Swift has never been shy about declaring her love for her cats. And as it turns out when she heads overseas to tour, she really misses them.
“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 I thank God we get to play bigger shows so I don’t have to play as many,” she told BBC Radio 1. “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.”
“It’s not that hard. It’s made out to be harder than it is,” she further said, adding, “I do have to leave the cats behind when I leave the country, which is the hardest part.”
Currently on her massive 1989 tour, the singer did reveal the one thing that helps her get through a world trek like the one she’s currently undertaking. “Any kind of coffee I can get,” she said. “I’m that sort of person that needs coffee every day or I feel like something’s a little weird.”
And when she comes off stage, Swift dished about what she likes to do. “That’s the best part of this [touring]. 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’. I really like the feeling of: ‘You know what? I’ve been busy. I deserve this watching two hours of TV at the end of the night’.”
Her show of choice? “I like Friends because I’ve seen every episode, so it’s like switching my brain off. I know exactly what they’re about to say.”
As for her busy life as a touring pop superstar, she noted, “It’s not that hard, I’m telling you now it’s really not. Sometimes I really don’t think it’s that hard at all.”
