Taylor Swift has the world in the palm of her hand this week, with the blockbuster release of her new single "Shake It Off." A collaborative effort with pop moguls Max Martin and Shellback, the singer-songwriter, set to drop her first documented pop album (1989) this fall, takes her haters to task with the new jam. Of course, fans will be delighted to know, too, that the star graces the new cover of The Guardian Guide, hitting newsstands tomorrow.

Within the magazine's pages, Swift opens up about her career, personal life and so much more. Stars Dakota Fanning and Edgar Ramírez will also be featured within the issue.

Here's a cool sneak peek:

Swift is expected to perform "Shake It Off" at Sunday's (Aug. 24) MTV Video Music Awards. The show goes live from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. at 9/8c.
