Taylor Swift’s fans are not buying into her claims that she’ll quit singing in the next year or so.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night, the pop singer claimed she’ll be back singing in 2018 but said she hasn’t “finished the game yet.”
“I’m just so tired,” she said, referring to her music and her career.
“The way I feel about it, I’m not ready to stop yet.”
She said the way she’s lived her life “is not that good.”
“The whole time I was touring, I never really stopped doing music,” she added.
“It’s just the way I live my life and it’s not working out.”
The pop star is currently embroiled in a court battle over her songwriting contract with a record label, which she says has been “saturated with bad publicity.”
The 30-year-old has claimed the record label is trying to force her to cut down on her touring schedule.
“If this was happening to me, I would say it’s just unfair,” she told Kimmel.
“I think I’m better than this.
This is my life, this is what I have to live for.
I don’t think I deserve to be treated like this.”
She’s also claimed that the record labels want her to stop making music.
“All they want me to do is do what everybody else is doing, just keep on playing,” she joked.
“We are all on the same page.
I know this isn’t fair, but I don, I don’ think it is.”
The singer was asked about her ongoing legal battle with her label in January.
“There is nothing wrong with me being in court,” she replied.
“You know what I’m saying?
I’m doing what I want to do.
It’s just that the other side is doing it in the same way they are.
They are trying to control me.”
Earlier this year, Swift claimed that she was not the first person to have been the subject of a lawsuit by a record company over a song.
The singer told the Today Show in March that her company had “been sued by a man in his 30s for defamation for what was published on the internet.”
“If you don’t understand that it’s libel and I’m suing this guy, he can sue me and he can get the money from me,” she went on to say.
“So what I said was that the internet was a place where people could post something, it was a platform where people can make a claim, and I was just going to let people do that.”
But Swift’s legal team said in an affidavit filed in March 2018 that they had no idea about the lawsuit.
“Taylor Swift has never been the victim of a false allegation of libel,” the statement read.
“However, in response to questions by TODAY, Taylor Swift has stated that she did not know that her words had been used in a libelous manner.”
Swift said she “never intended to make anyone suffer” after being the subject, while the man in question is still suing her for defamation.
The pop singer has been outspoken in her criticism of the record industry and has even spoken out against President Donald Trump, who she said has a “disgraceful” and “totally unfair” administration.
In January, the singer said she was “disgusted” by the way people were treating celebrities.
“This is a guy who was elected president.
He’s the one that has got to get out of this, and he’s not even getting out of his office,” she wrote in a statement.”
When you talk about ‘making the world a better place’, this is one of the things you should really think about.
If he can’t get that, he doesn’t deserve to hold that office.”
