Okay we know Taylor Swift loves cats, especially her adorbs feline Meredith. But will the singer, who is drop dread gorgeous but can't keep a romance going to save her life, end up a crazy cat lady, living alone, surrounding by nothing more than the murmur of purring kitties? She has that fear, actually.

Say what?

Swift, who covers the April issue of InStyle U.K., reveals that she worries that she will end up alone, with no one caring about her. That's some intense and heavy thoughts for a 23-year-old who just released one of the best-selling albums in years in the form of 'Red.'

But then again, part of Swift's carefully-constructed image is her neuroticism. It's part of her charm, which, after her Vanity Fair cover, where she relegated Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to residents of that fiery underworld reserved for sinners known as hell for making fun of her, that neurotic charm might be wearing thin.

Even so, T. Swizzle stated (quotes via ONTD!), "What I worry about is that I never want to end up kind of a self-centered, vain human being…My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don't wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody."

Jesus, Taylor! Come on. While beauties and talents like Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland ended up this way, due to substance abuse and emotional problems, that doesn’t mean you're in the fast lane, with your foot on the gas, headed down that road, girl.

While the photo spread features the singer in ethereal, light and airy fashions, the interview quotes are heavier than granite.

She continued, "The typical Hollywood sad cliché of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone. That’s my fear. And that’s why I live my life the way I live my life because I’d so much rather feel everything than end up like that."

Dang, Harry Styles of One Direction done did a number on you. While he appears to have wronged Swift – if you believe her side of the story, told through an authorized VF source, she can't give up all hope on the notion of trust even if she does live her life cautiously to avoid being a sad sack cliche.

T. Swizzle said she does not remain in contact with her exes, so it's doubtful she texted Hazza to tell him he turned in a great perf at the BRIT Awards last month or that she digs 1D's Blondie cover.

She reiterates that she's a girls' girl. "I have guy friends but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them and they’ll end up in a slideshow of people I've apparently dated on the Internet. I mean, there’s all kinds of complicated things with having guys as friends."

Um, yes, when you're famous, things can get blown out of proportion and elevated by the media, but most people, civilian and celebrity, maintain healthy, opposite-sex friendships.

For someone who claims she doesn't read the Google Alerts related to tabloids, she sure is aware of the press perception of her. Or her publicist keeps her well-informed of the gossip.

Swift continued, revealing she limits the dudes in her life, saying, "If they have a girlfriend who doesn’t like you or things like that. So I have like two or three guy friends. A select few. But I have like 20-25 really good girlfriends."

So she won't end up alone, surrounded by a dangerous, hoarder-level amount of cats, covered in a sweater made solely of feline fur and cursing her fate, because she has tons of female pals.
