Swifties are rejoicing as it’s been back-to-back weekends of all things Taylor Swift. Last week she made history at the American Music Awards, accumulating more awards and making her the artist with the most AMAs, surpassing Michael Jackson. And this past weekend, Christmas came early as an excerpt from her British Vogue feature was released.

Swift stunned on the cover of the January issue, but it’s the accompanying piece that was all kinds of giving. Sure, the photos were spectacularly glam as she was styled a lot differently than what we’re used to. Her hair and makeup looked straight out of the ’60s and the fashion choices, from the peach knit tank to the green suede boots were all fabulous choices. And while Taylor has been making headlines as of late from her public feud with Scooter Braun, which is touched on in the piece, this interview — which she did with Andrew Lloyd Webber — is all about her upcoming project: Cats.

Maybe because she is a fur-mom of three (to Olivia Benson, Meredith Grey and Benjamin Button, ICYDK), she embraced her newest on-screen role, in which she co-stars alongside Idris Elba and Jennifer Hudson, among many others. Based on the trailer, it’s no secret the cinematic adaptation of the Tony-winning musical seems even more bonkers than the original, what with the CGI fur and the likes of Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judi Dench singing and dancing and prancing and purring, but that might be what Swift loves most about it.

“I really had an amazing time with Cats,” Swift told Lloyd Webber. “I think I loved the weirdness of it. I loved how I felt I’d never get another opportunity to be like this in my life.”

While Taylor admitted she’s unsure whether or not she wants to delve deeper into acting, Tay did refer to her younger days and getting asked where she sees herself in 10 years. “I’d try to answer,” she said. “As I get older, I’m learning that wisdom is learning how dumb you are compared to how much you are going to know.” So perhaps that’s just the singer leaving the door open to other career opportunities.

Swift also spoke about the importance of owning your own work, obviously referring to Braun and Scott Borchetta and the ongoing fight for and about her back catalog. “I think [writing] is really important – also from the side of ownership over what you do and make,” said the “Lover” singer. “Even if you aren’t a natural writer, you should try to involve yourself in the messages you’re sending.” Lloyd Webber agreed: “Today, very few people have a major career unless they write.”

Taylor and Andrew teamed up for a new song for Cats and, according to Vogue, “Lloyd Webber began playing the haunting, beautiful melody during an afternoon of rehearsals,” and “Swift started singing right away. She wrote the lyrics more or less then and there.” Ahh, the memories.

If you dare, the second trailer was released a couple weeks ago. Cats hits theatres Dec. 20.
