It’s time to lay off, you guys. So Taylor Swift has dated a few guys. So what? That’s no reason to make fun of her. We should be focusing on her music, not her personal life. She’s really talented! And she works very hard! And you know, I doubt she even wants us to know about her love life. So just think about that the next time you’re making some joke at poor Taylor’s expense. For shame, guys. For shame.
Taylor Swift has thick skin, but all the public mockery and jokes made about her love life is starting to wear on the I Knew You Were Trouble singer, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
According to a close pal, Taylor has a great sense of humor and knows that as a public figure she’s going to be a target — but the jabs are beginning to take a toll on her emotionally and she’s began to wonder who’s really joking and who’s not.
“At first Taylor just thought it was funny how much interest people had in her love life and she went along with it,” the insider revealed.
“But now she’s the butt of jokes on Saturday Night Live, in the tabloids and on the late night shows. She laughed it off, but the jokes made about her at the Golden Globes got under her skin.”
With a string of failed relationships including John Mayer, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas – which she frequently uses to write new songs – the 23-year-old’s reputation as a serial dater has been solidified.
“The jokes being made about her love life embarrass her, but it’s finally hit home with Taylor,” the pal said.
“She really wants to make an effort to slow down and not jump from boyfriend to boyfriend. In a weird way all the negative press has really opened her eyes and will be good for her!”
But see, I really don’t think the number of guys she’s dated is the problem. I think the problem is how she treats them when the relationship is over, and how she constantly tries to convince everyone that she’s the pure, innocent darling who could never do anything wrong. I mean, there are a lot of problems, and I think the way Taylor cycles through dudes, looking for song material is one of them, but it’s not about “man, she has been with so many people,” you know?
Either way, I hope this means we’re about to see a change in the way Taylor does things. We won’t, of course, but it’s always nice to have hope.
