Swift, whose song with The Civil Wars 'Safe & Sound' is featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack, appeared on Live! With Kelly this morning (March 23) to talk about her role model status.
"I'm not uncomfortable with it," she said. "You have to be conscious of that. If you're choosing to put out music and be out there in the public, you have to be conscious of the fact that you are a part of the raising of the next generation and you do have an impact on that.
"So, choose your outfits and your words and your actions carefully. I think it matters. I think it really does. You can pretend it doesn't, but it does."
Swift, who was named last year's Billboard 'Woman of the Year', invited a terminally ill fan to attend the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards with her on April 1 in Las Vegas.
"I don't know who's going to win any awards," Swift also said in the interview. "Nobody knows who's going to win until they say somebody's name.
"That's why, when I've won awards in the past, I get up there and [fakes sobs] and it doesn't make any sense and I black out. Then afterwards, I'm like, 'What did I say? Was it English?'"
