Taylor Swift says dating is the last thing on her mind.
Hollywood Boulevard and the people standing on it were treated to quite a show Thursday night: Taylor Swift, her cute crop top and “Out of the Woods” live for the very first time.

“It’s almost like you’re releasing this thing into the world that you’ve spent two years with and it’s just been mine for two years and now it’s everybody else’s,” Swift, 24, said during the interview portion of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“I’m like, sending it off to college,” she added.

With just a few days to go before the release of her fifth studio album, the singer looked as confident as ever performing with nothing but a glittery 1989 microphone. (OK a full band and back-up singers were also there).

Earlier in the day, Swift shared a select number of reviews published about 1989. The general consensus: it’s a good album.

Watch “Out of the Woods” live, above. Then check out “Shake It Off” live and highlights from her sit-down interview.

1989 drops Monday.
