Breathe easy, Swifties — it’s almost that time for Taylor Swift to take another break from the spotlight. The singer wraps up her 1989 world tour in December, and she’s admittedly ready to take it easy for a bit. But she’s going to work on new music during that time, right? RIGHT?!
Taylor Swift, 25, is ready for her well-deserved break. She’s been working non-stop since “Shake It Off” was released in Aug. 2014, and it’s just about time for her to go back into a bit of hibernation again. This schedule is no surprise — Tay’s been doing it for years — but she’s made us pretty nervous this time around…because there’s a possibility she WON’T be writing new music during her time off. WHAT!!!!?
“I think I should take some time off,” the 25-year-old tells NME magazine. “People might need a break from me. I’m going to hang out with friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don’t know.”
Okay, breathe. We have to break this one down. The first sentence makes perfectly good sense: Since she’s started in this industry way back in 2006, Taylor has released an album every two years, and if the schedule continues, that means her next record is due in the fall of 2016. Plus, she’ll have been continuously busy for a straight year and a half but the time the tour ends, so we can’t blame the girl for wanting to take a break! But there’s some trouble we have with the rest of her comment…
“People might need a break from me.” WHAT?! Nobody needs a break from you, Tay! Interestingly, this was basically the same excuse Anne Hathaway used when she returned from her year-long hiatus following her Les Miserables Oscar win. It’s true, the Swift-mania has been insane the last several months, but she’s just continued to slay, slay, slay, so we can’t help but continuing to obsess!
Here’s what’s really worrisome, though: “Maybe not write new music.” AHHH, say it ain’t so! In the past, Taylor has worked on perfecting her next album during her hiatuses’, and the albums have just gotten better and better. We’re already dying to see what she has up her sleeve next, so we couldn’t imagine her not putting out new stuff next year!
It’ll obviously be quite some time before we find out what Taylor actually uses her break to do, but we do hope she’s able to get some major relaxation time in! Anxiously waiting over here…
