The 25-year-old pop superstar gets sultry for the magazine's November issue, wearing a skintight nude tank dress overtop of a black bikini on the Michael Thompson-photographed cover. The "Bad Blood" singer looks bronzed and beautiful, with messy waves completing her beach-ready look.
For the issue, the captain of the Hollywood #girlsquad, whom GQ says "rules the world," gives an "intense, wide-ranging, Kanye West-inclusive interview." Writer Chuck Klosterman writes for GQ, "If you don’t take Swift seriously, you don’t take contemporary music seriously...There’s simply no antecedent for this kind of career: a cross-genre, youth-oriented, critically acclaimed colossus based entirely on the intuitive songwriting merits of a single female artist. It’s as if mid-period Garth Brooks was also early Liz Phair, minus the hat and the swearing. As a phenomenon, it’s absolutely new."
The full interview will be revealed next week.
