The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer has accepted her fame means she can't have a say in everything she does, but says she tries to live her life to the full as she doesn't want to regret things when she's older.
The 22-year-old beauty said: "My life is a constant balance of understanding that I can't control everything and I can't control what people are going to think about me and I can't control what people are going to write about me. But I can control my actions and how I live my life.
"I over-think things a lot. I always want to make the right choice, not for the sake of how's it is perceived but because I do understand that I'm living a life and I'm going to have look back on that life 20 years from now, if I'm lucky, and be proud of the choices I have made. Because it is intense being 22 and having a magnifying glass on you. So I guess you just try and make the right choices and control what you can."
Taylor says she likes to have fun but knows she can't go wild because of the consequences it may bring.
She added in an interview with Swedish TV show 'SVT': "I let go. I like to have fun and I like to be happy and I like to have a level of spontaneity in my life. I like to just go off on a whim here and that's the part of my brain that's an artist. And then there's the part of my brain that understands there's a harsh reality for every single one of my actions."
