Taylor Swift still feels anxious about album sales

Superstar singer Taylor Swift may have sold more than 12 million records around the world, but that doesn’t stop her worrying that she won’t sell enough when a new album comes out.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed huge success since releasing her first album in 2006, but says she has “anxiety about things on certain days, but I have anxiety because I care.”

She says while the feelings aren’t overwhelming, she does wonder what the number of sales will be. “I try to predict what it’s going to be, and then I realise that I can’t, and I sit there and say something to myself like, ‘Well, you’re happy today. Enjoy this and be proud of the music that you’ve made’.”
