(AUDIO) Taylor Swift Balances Stage High With Reality

April 7, 2013

Taylor Swift spends many nights of her life on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans, which can be a huge adrenaline rush, and an experience that requires a little time to come down from and to get back to reality, but Taylor admits the definition of “reality” is all relative. “The real world is just kind of – it’s an interesting concept because my real world involves walking on stage and there are thousands of people out there, then walking off stage, and there’s my cat,” she laughs. “So it’s like, you just kind of adjust your mind to experiencing that level of sound, that level of lights and that level of excitement, and your heart racing. And then yeah, it takes a couple of hours to fall asleep that night ‘cause your adrenaline is still rushing.” But as far as “coming back to reality” after being on stage, Taylor says that’s not that big of a transition. “As far as your mind and your perception of yourself, I don’t think that should change just because the crowds are getting bigger and your shows are sold out and people know all the words to your songs. It’s like, I’m still the same person that I was in middle school when I didn’t get invited to stuff. So, you just don’t want to go too ahead of yourself and think, ‘Huh. I really killed that. Man, those people – they’re so lucky to be here to see me.’ It’s like, I was so lucky to be on stage in front of that many people. That’s the truth of it.”

“Well, the real world is just kind of – it’s an interesting concept because my real world involves walking on stage and there are thousands of people out there, then walking off stage, and there’s my cat. So it’s like, you just kind of adjust your mind to experiencing that level of sound, that level of lights and that level of excitement. And your heart racing. And then yeah, it takes a couple of hours to fall asleep that night ‘cause your adrenaline is still rushing.
