Conor Kennedy ... you lucky guy!

Country cutie Taylor Swift is looking oh-so-sexy in a varsity jacket on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

The 22-year-old songstress opens up about reports that she kidnapped beau Conor from his high school ...to fly him to visit her in Nashville. She tells the mag:

    "You can't kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now! It's an interesting way to spin something into a story. See, this is why I don't read stuff."

As for her falling in love so quickly, Taylor adds:

    "The way I look at love is you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget about what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the-world mentality. You have to make it work by prioritizing it, and by falling in love really fast, without thinking too hard. If I think too hard about a relationship I'll talk myself out of it."

Just yesterday, Taylor was nominated for an American Music Awards in the "Favorite Female Artist - Country" category. Rootin' for ya, Tay!
