PHOTOS: Taylor Swift's Boyfriends -- Past & Present

Taylor is "deeply unconcerned with whether or not you consider her attractive, which of course only makes her more so," the men's magazine notes. In the accompanying Q&A, the superstar says her amazing year has been her "favorite year of [her] life so far," and dishes about how she has time for her famously large posse of gal pals.

"You have to have time to breathe and have a happy life, and friendships are so important to me," she explains. "Thankfully -- thanks to the fans -- now we get to play stadiums, so we do two or three stadium shows a week. I'll see my friends in whichever city I'm closer to."

Speaking of her female friendships, Taylor also explains why she's been more vocal about feminism recently. She points out the double standards when it comes to how others judge her intensely personal music, which often revolves around her famous relationships.

"A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is oversharing or whining," she says bluntly. "Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace, because it's just basically another word for equality."
