Taylor Swift won't tour next year so that she can prioritize her family originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
"I would have done everything exactly the same way," she told Billboard. "Because even the really tough things I’ve gone through taught me things that I never would have learned any other way."
"I really appreciate my experience, the ups and downs," she added. "And maybe that seems ridiculously Zen, but … I’ve got my friends, who like me for the right reasons. I’ve got my family. I’ve got my boyfriend. I’ve got my fans. I’ve got my cats."
Swift, 29, who has withstood a number of ups and downs over the past decade, is beginning her next chapter by rerecording her earlier albums. Currently, most of her work, from her debut album through 2017's "Reputation," are now owned by music manager, Scooter Braun, with whom she has negative history.
"The reason I’m rerecording my music ... is because I do want my music to live on," she explains. "I do want it to be in movies, I do want it to be in commercials. But I only want that if I own it."
"[The rerecording is] going to be fun, because it’ll feel like regaining a freedom and taking back what’s mine," she said. "Going back in and knowing that [these songs] meant something to people is actually a really beautiful way to celebrate what the fans have done for my music."
Swift, who released her latest album, "Lover," last month, also reveals that she won't do a regular tour next year so that she can spend more time with her loved ones. In March, Swift announced that her mother's cancer had returned.
"This is a year where I have to be there for my family," she says. "There’s a lot of question marks throughout the next year, so I wanted to make sure that I could go home."
