Taylor Swift is stunning and sophisticated on Vogue magazine cover… but reveals she's been through ANOTHER 'earth shattering heartbreak'
She made her name as an occasionally gawky teenage country singer who wrote songs about love, heartbreak and being an outsider.
But there was nothing remotely nerdy about Taylor Swift on this month's cover of Vogue magazine.
The 22-year-old singer looks stunning and sophisticated in a serious of beautiful outfits in the classy photographs, taken by celebrity photographer Mario Testino.

One shot shows her posing on a vintage sofa in a striking pale green dress with floral design, teamed with high heeled white boots.
Straightened hair and and smokey eye make-up compete the look, which Taylor also replicates with a prestigious cover spot for the magazine.
Famous for writing about her personal life through her songs, Taylor says that her fourth album – the successor to her 2010 record Speak Now – will document more heartbreak.
'There’s just been this
earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak,'
she tells the magazine. 'And that will turn out to be what the next album is about.

awful pain of losing someone – is writing songs about it to get some sort
She also says that she is currently single, with no potential love matches on the horizon.
'I got nothing going on. I just don’t really feel like dating,' she says in the interview, which appeared to have taken place late last year.

Christmas, so I am really stoked about that. I am not gonna go into it. It’s a sad story.'

She is previously said to have dated Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer, with Jonas famously dumping her in a 27 second phone call.
'I think I am smart unless I am
really, really in love, and then I am ridiculously stupid,' she tells Vogue.
However, the star has learned a few things from her failed relationships – 'I have a few red flags now'- and lists them for the magazine.
They include 'If someone doesn’t
seem to want to get to know me as a person but instead seems to have
kind of bought into the whole idea of me and he approves of my Wikipedia page,' along with 'men who are threatened by what I do.'
'Also I can't deal with
someone who’s obsessed with privacy. 'If you care about privacy to the point where we need to dig a tunnel under this restaurant so that we can leave I can’t do that.'
The magazine also shows the star looking svelte in a pair of tight black trousers, high heeled boots and decorated beige jacket.
However, the lucky singer says she doesn't like to work out too much.
'I don’t ever want to be that person
whose self-image overtakes who they are. I am not a fan of working out
'There’s no regimen. There’s no personal trainer. I love to go
hiking because it’s an experience. If I need to gain stamina for a
tour, I will run every single night on the treadmill, but I don’t
necessarily like being at the gym.'
The latest issue of Vogue is on sale on newstands on January 24.
