Sabrina Carpenter Opens Up About Learning From Taylor Swift & Dating Amid Barry Keoghan Romance

Sabrina Carpenter had a lot to discuss in her new Cosmopolitan digital cover story, from traveling the world with Taylor Swift on the Eras Tour to how she approaches dating (ahem, Barry Keoghan).


While reflecting on opening for the “Anti-Hero” singer on the superstar’s global Eras trek’s Latin America, Australia and Singapore legs, the Girl Meets World alum said she feels “so genuinely lucky.” “I get to perform a set that I’m super comfortable with, and then I get to watch one of the greatest performers every night,” she continued.

“It almost feels like a Broadway show because everything is so synchronized, but at the same time feels so in the moment,” Carpenter added. “That’s an art. It’s really hard to teach. It’s really hard to learn. And I feel so lucky that I get to watch Taylor perform every time. It makes me want to tour the world again, which is a good feeling.”

The “Feather” singer’s Eras stint followed her own headlining tour for Emails I Can’t Send, Carpenter’s fourth studio album, which debuted at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 in July 2022. Swift’s trek has made for several memorable moments where Carpenter is concerned, from the time the two artists performed “White Horse” and “Coney Island” together to the Work It star’s nightly NSFW “Nonsense” outros.

“the most thank you’s I’ve ever thank you’d to Taylor,” she reflected in a recent Instagram post. “I feel so lucky to witness the magic that is you and this tour. there is truly no one like you and there never will be! i love you with all my heart and i will cherish this taybrina era (and all the eras) till the end of time.”


Another fan-favorite moment from Carpenter’s time with the Eras Tour came earlier this month, when cameras captured the singer-actress running into Barry Keoghan’s arms backstage. Since then, the couple have made their public debut, stepping out together at the 2024 Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Without naming the Saltburn actor directly, Carpenter shared that she prefers to leave her love life up to “fate.” “I know that’s super broad, but I don’t actively look for it,” she told Cosmo. “The relationships that I actually want to put my energy into have to be so interesting or invigorating because they take me away from the other things I love. So yeah, it’s fun and it’s messy. I think I’m still just at this place where I’m really enjoying the newness of all of it.”
