Taylor Swift on Dancing at Awards Shows, Her Fancy Gym Attire: ‘In New York I Have to Try a Little Harder’

By Annie Reuter

Last night (Aug. 14), Taylor Swift stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers, and while didn’t give away any new details on her upcoming Yahoo livestream coming this Monday, she did share what her life is like now as a New York City resident and just why she dances at all those awards shows.

Recently, several photos have surfaced of Swift as she gets out of the gym. But she isn’t photographed in a pair of running sneakers and shorts; instead she’s dressed to the nines.

“That is how everyone looks when they come out of the gym,” Swift joked. “I like to bring a change of clothes. I just like a change of clothes. I bring a hairbrush with me. New York is one of those cities it feels worth dressing up for. I don’t know. I just feel like when I walk out onto the sidewalk in New York I have to try a little harder.”

As for her dancing at awards shows? Just trying to stay loose and encourage others to do the same, that’s all.

“I used to get really nervous at awards shows seemingly they’re a huge pressure cooker,” she said. “A couple years ago I decided this is the coolest concert you could ever go to. All these incredible acts playing their biggest songs and I get to be front row and I’m going to dance because I feel like it and not because it looks cool because it doesn’t.”

Tune in Aug. 18 at 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST to Yahoo! for Taylor Swift’s livestream announcement live from New York City. On the docket? Fingers crossed for new music announcements.
