It goes without saying that Taylor Swift has one of the most fiercely loyal fan bases in showbiz. Cumberbitches don’t compare. Directioners? Pah! They laugh in the face of Directioners.

Since she shot to fame, Taylor has always maintained an impressively close relationship with her fans. Whether she’s sending them personal gifts or shouting out to them on social media, it’s this up-close connection with them that makes her fans oh-so loyal to her. So, if you count yourself as one of them, you may want to sit down for this news…

The 25-year-old songstress spoke candidly to NME about her plans after her 1989 world tour finishes and, apparently, they don’t involve the making of music.

That’s right! Taylor said, and we quote, ‘I think I should take some time off. People might need a break from me. I'm going to hang out with friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don't know.’

Sorry Tay, but WTF? You’re ‘maybe not’ going to write new music? Is life even worth living anymore?

To be fair, she has earned herself a bit of a break. Having been on the road for seven months, performing most nights a week, blasting out killer duets with everyone from Julia Roberts to Steven Tyler AND creating the most star-studded music video of all time, we reckon a little R&R on the vocal cords is just what she needs to come back fighting.

Oh, and on a side note, she may just want to spend some time with her ridiculously handsome BF, Calvin Harris.
