Taylor Swift is happy to perform in front of sold-out arenas, but don’t put her close to a sea-urchin. The singer will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, October 27th — the same day her new album 1989 hits stores. A couple clips from her interview with Ellen have been released early. In the first, Swift discusses her role as a mentor on The Voice (and how to incapacitate Adam Levine).
In her role as mentor on The Voice, Swift got to spend lots of time with the show’s coaches (Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Pharrell). Apparently one of the benefits of this was that Swift “learn[ed] their weaknesses, which she explains in detail in the case of Adam Levine. Now that this information is public, you can expect Levine to be followed around by ladies serenading him with passages from musicals.
In the other clip, Ellen asks the singer about her fears. She finds sea urchins particularly terrifying — “you could lose your foot, you could lose your hand, you could lose your hand trying to get it off of your foot,” she says. She’s also “scared of getting framed.” “So many people would frame me,” she continued. “And they can frame you for any crime that you could go to jail for. Look at me, I wouldn’t survive in jail!”
Ellen didn’t buy it though. “I think you’re fine,” she said. “I think you would have fans in prison and they would take care of you.”
