LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Taylor Swift may croon about the enchantment of love, but the superstar is currently flying solo.
“[I’m] completely [single],” Taylor told Access Hollywood correspondent Kit Hoover, when asked about her romantic status during a junket for Taylor’s new animated film, “The Lorax,” in Los Angeles.
“[Are you] loving it?” Kit asked.
“Yes! I’m actually really good at being single,” the “Mean” singer answered with a smile. “As much as I love to complain about it, I’m actually very independent and I’m fine. I’m really good by myself.
“But I do love to complain about being single, even though I’m really I’m fine with it,” she added.
The 22-year-old country cutie – who has been linked to Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and more over the years – says she doesn’t have a particular “type” when it comes to men.
“No, I’m random,” she told Kit. “There’s no way to predict a pattern. That’s what my friends tell me.
“So, that’s also kind of good, [it] sets the bar low for the future,” she added, laughing.
The singer – who is known for airing her breakup grievances in song – said the fear of having their personal issues forever remembered on one of Taylor’s hit albums doesn’t usually scare off potential suitors.
“I don’t think it ever bothers guys when things are good, like, in the beginning,” she said. “I think it bothers them in the end when things aren’t good, but that’s not, then it’s not really my problem anymore — to care what they think about it.
Taylor lends her voice to “The Lorax” playing Audrey (alongside stars including Zac Efron, Betty White, Ed Helms and Danny DeVito), a character whose name holds sentimental value for the Dr. Seuss film.
“Dr. Seuss’ wife was actually named Audrey, so it’s really pretty cool that I get to play this part,” she told Kit. “I have always loved Dr. Seuss. I love the rhyme schemes and the way that words just bounce off a page and the way that afterward you ‘ve learned something, but you didn’t realize it at the time because it was so much fun.”
“The Lorax” opens in theaters on March 2.
