-In her new Billboard cover story, Taylor Swift discusses advocating for women’s rights and breaking down gender barriers in the industry. “I get so many phone calls from new artists out of the blue — like, ‘Hey, I’m getting my first wave of bad press, I’m freaking out, can I talk to you?’ And the answer is always yes! I’m talking about more than 20 people who have randomly reached out to me.

Apparently she was labelled “difficult” from the beginning when she complained about Simon Cowell constantly (and illegally) smoking indoors, and she annoyed producers when she asked drag performers about their preferred pronouns.
