The 35-year-old singer/songwriter - who returned to music this week with third studio album 'Into Colour', which she co-produced with fiancé Rob Shirakbari - is a big admirer of the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker and considers her one of the most ''talented'' artists around.
In an interview with website Entertainmentwise.com, Rumer said: ''I think Taylor Swift is really talented. She can play guitar and she is a really good songwriter.''
''I think you have to work extremely hard and make a lot of sacrifices to be Taylor Swift. I think she's one of these young people that are born to be a star. She knows how to play the role of a star, she's a natural.''
Although Rumer admires Taylor she is not impressed by celebrity culture, but hopes most people are intelligent enough to not take it seriously.
She added: ''Celebrity culture shouldn't be too influential in society especially with the younger generation. It's all good fun to numb your brain with some stupid vain people on television sometimes. It's an escapist kind of thing. I just think they shouldn't be role models.''
Rumer has had a two-and-a-half-year break from music, but now she's back in the charts she's decided to postpone her wedding plans to Rob.
She said:''Luckily, I have a partner who is with me on the road and is my co-producer, my co-writer ... so we're kind of in the same project together, doing everything together.''
