Taylor Swift Shut Down A Majorly Sexist Question About Turning 30
Taylor Swift has no time for your sexist questions, and she's made it abundantly clear in a recent interview with German outlet RTL.
With the singer set to turn 30 this December, one journo had the audacity to ask the global megastar if she plans on becoming a mother soon -- and Tay Tay was NOT here for it.
She quickly shut down the question and noted that if she were a man, the topic of parenthood wouldn't have been raised at all.
“I really do not think men are asked that question when they turn 30,” she told the publication, according to translations.
“So I’m not going to answer that now.”
The "ME!" singer did, however, add that she'll be taking lessons she has learned during her twenties into the next decade.
“I hear others say… your thirties no longer has as much stress and anxiety in life as in my twenties , and I can join in the observation that we are in our twenties looking to gain experience, try things out, fail, make mistakes,” Swift said.
“And I definitely plan to try and fail things in my thirties as well. But I expect that in our thirties we feel a little better of who we are. The closer I get to it, the more I feel it happens."
In a piece she wrote for Elle in March, Swift spoke about the 30 lessons she’s learned so far ahead of the milestone birthday.
“I’ve learned that society is constantly sending very loud messages to women that exhibiting the physical signs of ageing is the worst thing that can happen to us,” she wrote.
“These messages tell women that we aren’t allowed to age. It’s an impossible standard to meet.”
