Taylor Swift Won’t Google Herself

Thursday, September 29, 2011

TAYLOR Swift refuses to Google herself — because she’s worried about what people are saying about her.

The Love Story hitmaker, 21, hates to read negative comments.

“I don’t have thick skin,” she said. “If somebody says something mean, it WILL hurt my feelings. Anything bad that I read about myself, I’m just like … [fakes sobbing].”

Taylor said she gets frustrated when stories are written about her that aren’t 100% accurate.

“No, you can’t Google yourself or your self esteem will just go like that,” she said, motioning her hand downward.

“You’ll read something that’s not true or you’ll read just like a little fact that’s like a little off base and you’ll be like, ‘Nobody knows what’s really going on! Like, what’s going on?’”

Taylor recently admitted she’s obsessed with cooking.

“Right now I’m obsessed with cooking, so I’ve been getting all kinds of cookbooks,” she said. “Everybody knows, all of my friends know, that I love to cook, and so I have this entire bookshelf full of cookbooks in my place.

“I really love reading Barefoot Contessa cookbooks.

“And you know when you go into the stores and there’s [books like] ‘How To Make Great Sandwiches’ and you’re [thinking], ‘who buys those?’ I buy those! I see a book of ‘100 Ways to Make Cupcakes.’ I buy that.

“Basically anything that I can get from a cookbook and then improvise with, I’ll get the basic recipe from a cookbook and get the idea for it and then I’ll just [think], ‘oh, I wonder what would happen if I add this to it?’”
