Taylor Swift Prioritizes Music Over Movies
Taylor Swift received an MTV Movie Award nomination for her role in 'Valentine's Day' and scored rave reviews for her guest role on 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.' But despite success on the big and small screens, her number one love is still music. And for now, that's what she wants to focus on, without any other distractions.
"I'm not making movies right now. I'm making music," the superstar tells MTV News. "It's been so cool to be able to be a part of things that have been really fun. And I feel like I get to do these little mini-movies when I make music videos, so that kind of fulfills that little need or desire. But if I ever get time, I might like to [act again]."
Having just wrapped her sold-out, global Fearless tour, Taylor is busy this summer working on the album that will follow the multi-platinum 'Fearless.'
"[The new album] is going great!" she says excitedly. "I've been writing it for the last two years, so this summer, it's all about the finishing touches and getting in the studio and recording the last couple songs."
As for the theme of her third album, Taylor says, that should be obvious: "Boys and love."
Taylor is scheduled to perform at Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery on June 22, at Music City's Bridgestone Arena. The all-star concert was organized by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to raise funds for rebuilding lives that have been devastated by the recent Nashville floods. Taylor donated $500,000 of her own money to help her neighbors in need.
