Taylor Swift approaches her 30th birthday in December.
She was named one of Time's 100 most influential people in the world this year and has reigned in pop music the entire last decade. But she's a woman now of a certain age, and that means – even in 2019, apparently – people must know if she's going to have children and settle down.
A German interviewer asked her during her promotional tour for "ME!" if, according to translations, she was at a "kind of turning point in your life? Would you like to be a mother someday, have children?"
Swift found the question sexist. Accurate.
"I really do not think men are asked that question when they turn 30," she told the German media outlet Deutsche Presse-Agentur. "So I’m not going to answer that now."
The singer, who has been dating actor Joe Alwyn for two years, did summarize what her 20s were like and what she believes the future may hold.
"We are in our 20s looking to gain experience, try things out, fail, make mistakes," she told DPA.
"I definitely plan to try and fail (at) things in my 30s as well. But I expect that in our 30s, we feel a little better of who we are. The closer I get to it, the more I feel it happens."
