Fans are my favourite thing in the world. I’ve never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line’s always been really blurred for me. I’ll hang out with them after the show. I’ll hang out with them before the show. If I see them in the mall, I’ll stand there and talk to them for 10 minutes.
My parents actually almost named me Shelby. But then they realised that my name would have been Shelby Swift and that kids might make fun of me. Shelby Swift‒ like ‘She’ll-be Swift’. And then like, what if I wasn’t a fast runner? They would’ve been like “well she’s not.”
