Taylor Swift: Morality trumps fame

Taylor Swift certainly seems to have it all.  Nevertheless, she insists upon morality as a vital companion to fame and fortune.

In fact, Swift has stated:  I judge people based on their moral code; I think someone is nothing without a moral code.  She then went on to explain that morality trumps talent, wealth and popularity.

Swift belongs to a "sisterhood" that she cherishes.  This “inner circle” of females even includes those who have dated the same men.  Swift says, “…just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.”

What Swift does hold against others is a sense of betrayal.  She firmly vows to shun those who will talk her down and try to humiliate her.

Being human, Swift has made her share of mistakes.  However, she tends not to repeat the same ones, especially with regard to friendship and romance.

She is particularly on guard against a tendency of companions to try and change her.  She concludes:  That can be the most painful thing, trying to love someone who is critical in their nature.
