Taylor Swift: ‘I’m Not a Clingy, Insane, Desperate Girlfriend’
Taylor Swift is smashing the rumors that she’s a boy-crazed songstress.
In the April issue of Vanity Fair, which hits newsstands next week, the 23-year-old insists, “If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” meaning Conor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles.
Swift also speaks out about the reputation she has earned for singing about her relationships. “For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist,” she says.
While sadly she does not dish about the individual relationships herself, she did allow an authorized source to talk about her romance with One Direction star Harry Styles. The insider told the mag that the British singer chased after her for a year before they went public with their romance. “He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing – I want to be with you. I want to do this,’” said the source. However, things ended when he was seen making out with another girl. After he won her back, they briefly dated publicly late last year, but they fizzled out again after their disastrous Caribbean vacation in early January.
The Grammy-winning songstress also had some – shall we say – harsh words for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who infamously joked about her love life at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. The funny co-hosts advised that the blond beauty should “Stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.” But apparently, Swift didn’t find it funny and is now firing back. “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’” Swift told Vanity Fair.
The Hollywood Reporter reached Poehler for comment on Tuesday afternoon, who responded, saying, “Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
Don’t forget to tune in to “omg! Insider” on TV tonight (check your local listings) to hear Vanity Faircontributing editor Nancy Jo Sales spill even more details about Swift’s can’t-miss interview.
This is directed to all the 1D fans. Stfu. Seriously. Give me all the hate you want I don’t care. Want to know why? Because I would rather take the bullshit hate you’re giving Taylor than you actually sending her mass hate. What are you proving? Oh that you’re “loyal” to harry when he is obviously okay with the break up and doing fine. He has nothing but sweet things to say about Taylor so why are you all so fucking ignorant? (Don’t know what ignorant means, look it up.) You call Taylor a whore? She’s had 6 boyfriends since 2009. Harry has had more and he’s younger. Think Taylor has small boobs? Well yours aren’t any bigger cause you’re all 5. (And if you’re older start acting your damn age.) I’m sure Taylor really cares to hear from a bunch of 14 year old hormonal girls who have nothing better to do than send hate to a 23 year old girl who you don’t even know.
So grow up. P.S. harry styles will never fall in love with you and you will never get married.
Is Taylor Swift Fanning the Flames of New Breakup Rumors?
Could One Direction’s Harry Styles already be yet another subject for Taylor Swift’s next album?According to Business Insider, the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer has some new breakup material, and she isn’t doing much to make the world believe any differently.
While Harry has kept quiet thus far regarding reports of the couple’s demise, on January 5, Taylor cryptically tweeted a partial lyric from her current single, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” “…’til you put me down,” she wrote. It’s open to interpretation what that might mean, but she certainly hasn’t given any further clues.
The country superstar has a well-known habit of turning her ex-boyfriends into fodder for her best-selling albums. Many of her exes, which include Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and (most recently) Conor Kennedy – have been the inspiration for some of her biggest hits. For example, her song “Back to December” is widely rumored to be about Lautner and “The Story of Us” was reportedly all about Mayer.
omg! has reached out to reps for both Swift and Styles but has yet to hear back.
Meanwhile, the Internet is exploding with comments over whether or not Haylor will “ever, ever (be) getting back together.” A search for both of their names on Twitter shows that fans are dying to get a definitive answer from the couple one way or another. Several fans joked online that Taylor must have gone in the “Wrong Direction.”
So, here’s how the trajectory of the rumored breakup reportedly went down. After spending Christmas in Park City with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, and later spending New Year’s Eve together in New York City, Taylor and Harry then jetted off to Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands for a romantic holiday.
Things appeared to be going well at first as the couple was spotted dining at CocoMaya restaurant on January 1, where they happily posed for pictures with fans. However, a heated argument reportedly sent Taylor packing a few days later.
On Friday, January 4, Swift caught the first flight back to the U.S. after reportedly ending her two-month relationship with Styles.
Apparently, that didn’t make the “One Direction” singer too upset though. He was then photographedover at Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island where a source tells Business Insider, “he did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while hanging out with guests.” Harry then returned to Virgin Gorda after “looking like he had a raucous night.”
Pictures surfaced online today of Harry posing with fans after returning solo to NYC on Sunday, later arriving in London on Monday.
okay so there’s a blurry picture of taylor and harry together….this isn’t the first picture we’ve seen of them out and about….so I’m genuinely confused as to why NOW this is such a huge big deal.
and if you’re still in denial that they aren’t dating than you really need a reality check. They were dating last week….they were dating last month and they are still dating. the end.
Taylor and Harry seem genuinely happy together and honestly, that’s all that matters. I may think she’s jumping into a relationship too fast, that Harry isn’t the best for her, that he’s too young, that he’s ugly and just meh to me, but I’m not the one dating him. Taylor is, and she seems happy. She does. And that’s all I want for her. For her to be happy with her career and her personal life.
I think it’s time for Taylor Swift fans and One Direction fans to start living THEIR lives and not get so involved in peoples’ lives that honestly don’t even know we exist individually. Taylor and Harry both would be disgusted to hear the things that are coming of our mouths. You may think you’re supporting one or the other…but you’re not, you’re just too concerned with their lives than you are your own.
I love Taylor and I wasn’t okay with this at first but from what I’ve seen over the past few days, she seems happy. Sure, it may not last and honestly I don’t see it lasting, but if she’s happy for the time being then good for her.
people think Taylor is in this relationship with Harry to get fame?
part of me feels like Harry is using Taylor to get attention or the band attention.
Directioners…it’s not so nice seeing hate about your favorite band/person is it?
Think about that the next time you post hate about Taylor Swift.
It hurts seeing these candids of Taylor and Harry and realizing that most 1D fans are seeing the same candids and sending hate and death threats to Taylor.
It breaks my heart, but Taylor is putting herself in this situation for love. Maybe. We don’t even know if they ARE dating or if it will work. At the most, it could gave been a date with no sparks.
I just hope she stays safe and she ignores all the hate from fangirls who think they have a chance with Harry.
Just breaks my heart. That’s all.
