Swift traces her recent outspokenness to a few years back, when she says she was in the auto with her friend Todrick Hall, who asked her what she would do if her son was gay.
Speaking about how it felt to have grossly offensive hashtags created about her, Swift told Vogue: "A mass public shaming, with millions of people saying you are quote-unquote cancelled, is a very isolating experience".
And in her Vogue interview, the singer previews the Lover title track: "My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue/ All's well that ends well to end up with you".
"Hi Anna, it's Taylor, I have some questions for you", Swift says in the video.More news: China lowers yuan's trading range but currency stabilizes

Taylor Swift graces the cover of Vogue's coveted September issue and has spoken about freeing herself from being "cancelled" and the need to get more political. "Things that I've been dying to know, I think the Internet will agree with me".
For those of you who don't yet know- Todrick Hall is a choreographer to the stars and performer, most recently appearing in the "You Need To Calm Down" video and was also in the "Look What You Made Me Do" video. In 2014, she removed her music from Spotify, saying that she was "not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists and creators of this music", and inspired other artists to follow suit.
Then there was her feud with Katy Perry. "It was kind of devastating to realize that I hadn't been publicly clear about that", she added. "It was the only way I could preserve my mental health". As soon as I started playing stadiums-when I started to look like a woman-that wasn't as cool anymore.
"If I had made all the same choices, all the same mistakes, all the same accomplishments, how would it read?"
Thrive indeed. Taylor's traded in her goth snake phase for rainbows and butterflies (which we're honestly pumped about) and is about to bestow another album on the world in a couple weeks. If Americans gave a hoot about what liberal celebrities said about politics, Republicans would never win elections because we are constantly lectured by Hollywood about how "evil" the right is.
