While Taylor Swift may still be trying to find her Prince Charming, she did score some magic by snagging a rare opportunity to work with the incredibly talented Annie Leibovitz. In the latest Disney collaboration, Swift will portray the the long haired princess Rapunzel. Her shot will be included in the upcoming issues of Vanity Fair, InStyle and People. The last time we saw Leiobovitz & Disney working together in 2012 we had the humorous Jack Black, Will Ferrell & Jason Segel as the Hitch-hiking Ghosts. The last photo was a winner, so how is Taylor Swift as Rapunzel? Read on to find out!
During a behind the scenes interview, Swift was quoted as saying “I have so many amazing memories that come from Disney, because I started singing Disney songs. My parents realized I really was obsessed with this when I would go up to strangers and sing Lion King songs on the beach. When Disney came to me and said ‘We want you to play Rapunzel in this series,’ I just was so honored. It’s such a wonderful character to get to play, I think it was like a childhood fantasy coming to reality for me. ‘Wow, this is really happening and Annie is shooting it,’ it’s just one of those things that seemed like a Once in a Lifetime opportunity.”
With all of the interviews I have watched and read it seems like every celebrity that is lucky enough to be chosen is incredibly grateful for this rare and amazing opportunity. As they should be. Annie Leibovitz and Disney are big names and I would be floored to hear from either one myself.
This dreamy shot portrays a wistful Taylor gazing out of her castle window, hanging out with every Princess’s best friend (white doves) and more than likely dreaming of leaving the tower she was doomed to spend her eternity in. Very dramatic; very appropriate. The tale of Rapunzel is quite the grim story indeed- and while it has been adapted in multiple countries & decades- the main factor is the Beautiful & Blonde girl with the long golden locks. Who better than sweet little pop princess T-Swift? Her hair is just as popular as she is, and just like Rapunzel- all seems to be unbearable until Prince Charming comes along.
Oh Taylor, don’t look so sad. Someday, your prince WILL come. In the meantime, you might want to just steer clear from mini Michael J.Fox
