Taylor Swift has broken her long press silence to do a Harper's Bazaar interview and photo shoot with Pattie Boyd, the ex-wife and "muse" of both George Harrison and Eric Clapton.
"I don’t know what it is that makes some people really creatively inspiring," Swift tells Boyd. "There have been people I’ve spent a lot of time with who I just couldn’t write about."
She continues, "I don’t know. It’s just that some people come into your life and they have this effect on you...It’s really interesting because in your case you inspired that creative output from two iconic musicians. That just blows my mind. It’s very rare!"
When I finished reading Pattie Boyd’s incredible memoir Wonderful Tonight, I felt inspired and intrigued. I wanted to ask her about her life, sit down and talk about all things 1960’s London, Beatlemania, and how it felt to be on the other side of songwriting: the side of the muse. So that’s what we did, and she is now my forever lady crush. Thank you @harpersbazaarus for this opportunity and @alexilubomirski for taking these photos!! And of course Pattie 💗
