Taylor Swift: My friends complete me

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has listed her friends and recent Red Tour as her two biggest achievements.

The American songstress counts the likes of Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding as close pals, and says it's the knowledge that she has such a tight circle that gets her through tough times.

"I've met and gotten to know some of the greatest girls and guys recently and I've made my friendships a big priority. Knowing that I've found this group of awesome people who would be there for me through good times and bad; that's a big accomplishment in my eyes," Taylor gushed to the British edition of Glamour magazine.

As well as leaning on her friends, 24-year-old Taylor is known for channelling her heartache into smash-hit songs.

Tune I Knew You Were Trouble is widely believed to be about her ill-fated relationship with Harry Styles, though her fans don't seem to mind who she's singing about, as long as she's producing music.

Taylor had been on the road with The Red Tour since March 2013, and it finally wrapped in Singapore earlier this week.

"This has been a year of stadium touring and I'd have to say that is one of the biggest thrills for me. It's been the most incredible thing, seeing the crowds we play to get bigger and bigger every year. The success of The Red Tour was on one my favourite accomplishments," she confessed.

She bagged Glamour's International Solo Artist award at the publication's recent awards show, and couldn't stop smiling about the achievement.

"I've fallen in love with the UK more and more each time I've travelled back. To be given an award like this is such a wonderful feeling," she said.
