Country superstar tells MTV News that 2012 project has ‘a theme.’
This year proved to be another amazing one for Taylor Swift. She just wrapped up the U.S. leg of her Speak Now Tour, released her new Wonderstruck perfume and unveiled her video for “Ours.” But now, Swift has her sights set on an even bigger 2012.
Swift is gearing up to release her fourth album, and in an October interview, she revealed that her new songs were not about “moving on.” So when MTV News caught up with the country star at the Billboard Women in Music event, we had to ask which emotions were triggering such a personal album.
“I can’t tell you, because it’s a secret,” Swift teased. “It will be unveiled when it all comes out, because they all seem to have a theme to them, the records that we’ve put out so far, and this one is no different. It’s very different in what it’s about, but it’s no different in the fact that it has its own name.” Swift was on hand at the event with another honoree, Nicki Minaj, who is also set to release her new album in 2012, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
“I love her,” Swift said of Minaj. “One of my favorite moments of the tour was when she came out at the Staples Center and sang ‘Super Bass’ with me, which was, like, the coolest thing. It was like a dream come true, so it’s amazing to get to run into her and see her around, and I’m just such a fan.” So would Swift possibly collaborate with Minaj on her next album? “I mean, we’re not working on anything right now,” Swift said. “But I would love to at some point. That would be amazing.”
