Taylor Swift thanks fans for 'allowing her to grow up in a normal way'

Taylor Swift thinks her fans have let her develop into an adult without having to be "plastic or packaged".

The singer told the US Elle that she hasn't been pressured into being an "America's sweetheart" type of pop star.

The 'Style' lady said: "One thing I've gotten a little better at is the idea that I could do one thing wrong and all of this would completely disappear.

"Like, all of my work from my entire life, every album I've put out in the last 10 years, all of it would be wiped from the record and no one would appreciate what I've done that's good.

"Because you watch celebrity culture, and it happens, you know? Someone says something crazy in an interview or is caught stumbling out of a club drunk too many times when they're thought to be America's sweetheart. People can feel betrayed very easily by celebrities. And one thing that used to really scare me a lot is making my fans feels like they don't know me."

"I'm 25 now. So if they see me with a glass of wine in my hand, I think that's okay. They know I have a drink, they're cool with it. Which is one of the really nice things about my fans. They've allowed me to grow up in a normal way without having to be this crazy, abnormal, terrified, packaged, plastic America's sweetheart-type person."
