Taylor Swift says songwriting is a form of therapy for her during Time100 Gala. Time named Swift as one of the 100 Most Influential People.
The musician attended that Time100 Gala dressed in a pink and yellow sleeveless dress designed by J. Mendel, with the colors corresponding with the upcoming announcement she has in one day. Shawn Mendes wrote Swift’s profile for the accolade. Swift took to the stage at the gala to perform her hits over the years, including Style, Love Story, Shake it Off, Delicate and New Years Day.
During her performance, she told the audience, “I’ve always known it was the main pillar of kind of my sanity as well, like I always looked at writing as sort of like a protective armor. Which is weird, because you think of writing about your life, that’s usually like a vulnerability, but I think that when you write about your life, it gives you the ability to process your life. I use it as a way of justifying things that have happened to me. Whether they’re good or bad. I like to honor the good times and really process the bad times when I write.”
Swift also recently attended friend Gigi Hadid’s birthday party with some pink dye in her hair. A source told E!, “Taylor looked really happy. She was very relaxed but looked happy to be there. She was bopping her head to the music, dancing a bit. Gigi was super excited to see Taylor and they gave each other a huge long hug.”
Swift’s mysterious news drops on April 26.
