Taylor Swift hopes the lighting guy ‘doesn’t mess up’ on tour now she’s publicly praised him.
The American country pop singer is currently on the road with her Speak Now tour, and says the crew all work hard for long periods of time.
Taylor revealed that after the end of every worldwide series of shows she treats herself and all the crew to a big vacation, even if someone has done a ‘bad’ job.
‘Yeah actually, we usually take everybody on vacation. Like everybody. Every single person on the tour. That means band, dancers, crew. We usually pick somewhere beautiful and tropical, but we haven’t started planning it yet, because the tour is only half way done. It’s really wonderful to take everyone on a trip,’ she told the Kyle and Jackie O radio show.
‘No, we don’t do that,’ she laughed when asked if she excludes anyone for doing a bad job on tour. ‘Everyone’s really good on this tour. Now watch me say that and have the lighting guy mess up tonight.’
Taylor writes a different music lyric on her arm for every show. The 21-year-old star explained the words depend entirely on her mood that day.
‘t’s kind of like a mood ring. It’s what I’m listening to at the moment, or what I’m feeling at the moment, or whatever lyric I’m relating to at the moment. They’re all kind of based on my mood that day. And also, they have to be a lyric that I think is smart,’ she revealed.
‘Oh it’s never one of mine. It’s always somebody else’s. It’s an artist I’m a fan of. There’s been like 30, 40 so far, it’s anybody from U2 to Dixie Chicks. It’s like anybody. I have [written Eminem lyrics on my arm].’
The 21-year-old singer bought the four-bedroom property in native Tennessee for $1.4 million last September and has now put it back on the market for $50,000 more than she paid.
The house – which also comes with five bathrooms – is on a sprawling estate and features several gardens, a water fountain and an outdoor fireplace.
Inside, the property – which was built in 1929 – boasts original hardwood floors, custom woodwork and several magnificently ornate hand-crafted plaster ceilings, while the huge kitchen looks out of the pasture at the back of the house.
The country star also owns her parents’ three-bedroom home in the same area, has a huge penthouse in central Nashville as well as a stunning $3.35 million home in Beverly Hills.
Sources say Taylor splashed out on the Los Angeles property to save on accommodation costs whenever she visits the city.
One said: “Taylor just bought a beautiful home for herself in LA. She is in L.A. so much – and she was paying a fortune in hotel charges!”
Fans of Taylor Swift are in for a treat with the star’s upcoming release of her fragrance. The pop star has teamed up with Elizabeth Arden to create her signature scent.
The fragrance’s name, Wonderstruck, comes from one of Swift’s own songs, “Enchanted.” Of the fragrance, Swift says it “represents that magical feeling of promise and hope and intrigue.”
Wonderstruck is a combination of several elements, including freesia, green tea, apple blossom, raspberry, dewberry, and Hawaiian White Hibiscus. Vanilla and honeysuckle are also part of the scent.
Swift’s fragrance will launch in October in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Australia and New Zealand. In the fall of 2012, Wonderstruck will be available overseas.
Wonderstruck’s price will range from $18 to $59.50, depending on the size of the bottle.
