Taylor Swift will turn 30 this December, and she recently had to shut down a sexist question about the milestone during an interview with a German radio station.
After an interviewer for Germany’s RTL station asked her if turning 30 is a “turning point” for her when it comes to settling down, getting married to boyfriend Joe Alwyn and having kids, Swift pointed out the double standard and quickly moved on.
“I really doubt men get asked the same question when they turn 30,” she said. “So I’m not going to answer that question now.”
Despite that, she did offer a little insight, adding, “I hear others say that one in his thirties no longer has as much stress and anxiety in life as in my twenties. And I can join in the observation that we are in our twenties looking to gain experience, try things out, fail, make mistakes.”
