Swift will be turning 30 on December 13, so the two discussed what she learned from her '20s.

"I sort of equate my 20s with walking into a costume shop and trying on all these different costumes, and then walking out of the costume shop in my regular outfit and being like, 'I'm cool with who I am'," she explained.

"There were times when I played hundreds of shows in a year and I was like 17 years-old, and I would get exhausted and burned out," she said.

She says that now that she's entering her '30s, she has a new understanding of herself and her body.

"I now can really recognize and diagnose toxic messages being sent to me by society, by culture, about my body. I'm a woman, I'm not a coat hanger," she said. "I need to feel healthy in my life and I need to take pleasure in food and I need to not use my body as an exercise of control when I feel out of control in my life."

Earlier this year, Swift wrote a piece of Elle magazine about the 30 things she learned before turning 30. She opened up about self-acceptance in that, as well.

"I learned to stop hating every ounce of fat on my body," she wrote. "I worked hard to retrain my brain that a little extra weight means curves, shinier hair, and more energy. I think a lot of us push the boundaries of dieting, but taking it too far can be really dangerous. There is no quick fix. I work on accepting my body every day."
