The 'Red' hitmaker - who graces the front page of the November issue of the fashion bible in a Miu Miu pastel pink jacket and baby blue knit tank top - opened up to readers about her tumultuous love life in a stunning shoot by famed photographer Mario Testino.
The blonde beauty - whose smouldering eye make-up forms the focal point of upcoming edition's cover - insisted dating is the "last thing" on her mind as she posed for the sultry shoot.
She said: "Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind."
Taylor, 24 - who has had a string of high-profile relationships with One Direction's Harry Styles, singer John Mayer and actor Jake Gyllenhaal in the past - believes having a boyfriend just won't work while she lives her life in the spotlight.
She explained: "I can't picture how it could work with the way my life is. I don't know ho
w a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can't protect his girlfriend because that's the life she chose.
"I just don't see how it could work, so I don't think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself. 'Cause I don't think any guy really... They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don't think they want what comes with it."
