Taylor Swift covers the March issue of Vanity Fair, and the 23-year-old singer slams reports that she's a serial dater. "You know, if you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," Swift says, referring to Conor Kennedy and One Direction hottie Harry Styles. “[T]he fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with ... it’s just kind of ridiculous."
When asked if she’s boy-crazy, Swift smiles and says:
“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.”
While Swift didn't talk about her relationship with Styles, the mag says she "authorized someone to discuss them" with contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales. “He wore her down,” the source says, adding that he “chased” Swift for a year. “He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing—I want to be with you. I want to do this.’” After Swift ended the relationship, he pursued her for nearly a year until she finally took him back. “But the whole time she says she feels like he’s looking at every girl,” the source said. Interestingly enough, Styles' rep said that the source’s claims are “undeniably false.”
While the source added that her relationship with Kennedy was “just like a two-month thing,” Swift “says he was awesome,” and they noted that age has been a huge problem in all of her relationships. “She dated Jake [Gyllenhaal] and John [Mayer] when she was really young and they were in their 30s, and she got really hurt," the insider said. "So it was like ‘That hurt—this won’t. But then it did.’”
In response to reports that Swift bought a house next to the Kennedy family's Hyannis Port compound, Swift says:
“People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like—that’s a thing that I apparently do. If I like you I will apparently buy up the real-estate market just to freak you out so you leave me. One of these things I say to myself to calm myself down when I feel like it’s all too much ... If there’s a pregnancy rumor, people will find out it’s not true when you wind up not being pregnant, like nine months from now, and if there’s a house rumor, they’ll find out it’s not true when you are actively not ever spotted at that house.”
But Sales reports that Swift actually did purchase the house, as Ocean Drive LLC purchased it for $4.8 million in 2012. Just who is Ocean Drive LLC? The company’s filing papers name Jesse P. Schaudies of 13management, which is Swift’s management company. Between the information about the house and Taylor's mysterious source, we're not sure what to make of her latest sit down...
