73 Questions with Vogue.

April 26, 2016

So maybe I didn't get interview by Vogue, but let's pretend shall we.

Do you guys know Kaeleen From With Dignity and Coffee? Oh, you dont? That sucks. She rocks. Okay, so I don't personally know her, but I know that I read her blog daily and I love what I read. She's honest, hilarious and I think if we knew each other, we'd be great friends.

Like Kaeleen, I love Tay Swift. Throw shade, roll your eyes, I don't care. I am a proud Taylor Swift fan and I would die to be in her #squad. That girl has mastered music and she's getting a lot better at displaying her life in the public eye and dating in general. Or maybe she's just not talking about it as much.

Anywayssss. In case you missed in, Vogue interviewed Taylor in her house which is awesome. Taylor answered 72 questions in 3 minutes. It's amazing.

I really wish someone was interviewing me in my mansion in New York, but instead I'll just pretend that Anna Wintour is interviewing me and I'm offering her coffee. Here are my answers to Vogue's 73 questions.
