Taylor Swift is still messed up from her relationship with Harry Styles

We’re all pretty much on the same page that most of the songs on 1989 are about Harry Styles, right? Taylor Swift has admitted that her relationship with him – which ended back in January 2013 – was the last relationship she actually had, and ever since then she’s actually sworn off dating and plans to spend the rest of her life alone. Given that it’s nearly 2 years after the fact and she’s still feeling this way, there’s only one conclusion: he really fucked her up good and proper.

From Cosmopolitan UK:

Singing about the ‘daydream James Dean look’ in his eyes and how they will ‘never go out of style’, it couldn’t be more obviously (or sweetly) about One Direction’s Harry Styles. Not that she’ll be going back there… “I’ve learnt that just because someone is cute and wants to date you, that’s not a reason to sacrifice your independence and allow everyone to say whatever they want about you. I’m not doing that anymore.”

In fact she’s done with dating full stop for now, declaring: “It’d take someone really special for me to undergo the circumstances I have to go through to experience a date. I don’t know how I would ever have another person in my world trying to have a relationship with me, or a family. The best answer I can come up with now is ‘go at it alone. Life can be romantic without having a romance. I’m very attracted to how happy I am now.”

Well, obviously Taylor is still really young and it’s way too soon to say something so definite. However, I do think it’s incredibly difficult to have a successful relationship when you’re in the industry like she is. How could she? She’s constantly touring, being interviewed, having to meet fans, traveling around the world… it’s not really conducive to a loving and fulfilling relationship. Eventually, she’ll probably have to choose.

Taylor Swift is taking over the world

Taylor Swift only released her new album, 1989, on Monday, but she’s already basically killing all your favs and then some. She sold over half a million albums in under 24 hours, and considering how many people illegally downloaded it (thereby not counting in the sales), that’s AMAZING.

Definitely well deserved since, as I said the other day, it’s an EXCELLENT pop album and is already in my Top 5 albums of the year, for sure. I haven’t met a single person – TSwift fan or not – who doesn’t absolutely love it. This might be the most popular album of the year (and the only one to go platinum, since no other albums have so far).

Taylor Swift will destroy Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift used to be quite good friends only a few short years ago. Then things got ugly when Katy apparently stole some of Taylor’s dancers for her tour, and then Taylor dissed Katy publicly about it and blah blah blah. Now, the feud continues, because apparently Taylor is planning to try anything she can to sabotage Katy’s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl halftime show this winter.

An entertainment insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that both singers have been using the same concert tour director and production designer, Baz Halpin, for years.

“Baz did Taylor’s most recent RED tour and the Speak Now tour, and he did California Dreamz and the current Prism tour for Katy,” notes the source.

And now that Perry, who will celebrate her 30th birthday on October 25, has scored the high-profile Super Bowl XLVIV Halftime Show, she’s asked Halpin to design it. “He’s working out the money details right now, but it’s obviously a huge career highlight for him and he wouldn’t pass up the chance to do it,” says the insider.

That dedication to Perry isn’t exactly sitting well with 24-year-old Taylor. “She got word of Baz agreeing to do the show for Katy and Taylor’s flat out said she will not hire him ever again for any performance or tour if he goes ahead with his decision.”

The insider says that Halpin would “be nuts not do the gig” and there’s no way he’ll pass it up.

As for Perry’s thoughts on the subject? “Katy got word of Taylor’s ‘ultimatum’ and found it quite amusing.”

Oh, brother. I don’t know if any of this is true or why it even matters, but whatever. Taylor has got her own shit going on – 1989 is out and she’s headlining the New Years Rockin’ Eve celebrations here in NYC. Relax, everyone.

Taylor Swift premiere ‘Out of the Woods’

Taylor Swift‘s new pop album, 1989, is due out in less than two weeks, and so far we know we’ve got ‘Shake It Off’-esque tracks to look forward to. However, TaySwift isn’t completely leaving behind her emo stuff – her new track, ‘Out of the Woods’, goes in a slightly different direction and, quite frankly, doesn’t really sounds like her. Have a listen:

I’m all about the new Taylor Swift – I love the sounds and I think 1989 will be an excellent pop album, so this is right up my street. What do you think?

Taylor Swift may never have children

Taylor Swift is still young as hell – only 24 – so it’s far too early to tell whether or not she’ll have kids in the future. However, people want to know more about BABIEZ!!! as they do with most celebrity ladies, and, well, TSwift just hasn’t got an answer for you yet.

Here’s a bit of her interview with In Style (via E Online):

“I don’t know if I’ll have kids,” she tells the magazine. “It’s impossible not to picture certain scenarios and how you would try to convince them that they have a normal life when, inevitably, there will be strange men pointing giant cameras at them from the time they are babies.”

As for tying the knot, the 24-year-old says, “I’m too young to get married. Not agewise, but I know myself, so why try to meet someone right now when I know I’m too young to do something serious?”

Good for you, Taylor. Why the hell should you need to get married or think about kids at 24? Of course, if that’s your thing in life, go for it, but why is this even a topic of conversation? She’s about to release a new album and has so many professional accomplishments, so… why? You could even ask her about feminsim! That’s far more interesting than her plans to walk down the aisle, anyway – especially when she’s not even dating anyone and has repeatedly said this recently.

Taylor Swift doesn’t feel cool but it’s okay if you do

taylor swift

Taylor Swift is getting ready to release her new album, 1989, so she’s doing a lot of promotion in the form of interviews on TV, the radio and in magazines. Her latest spread in Canada’s Fashion isn’t really all that spectacular, but she does reiterate how uncool she feels and says that she’s not threatened by other women who ARE cool.

“Celebrities surround themselves with people who don’t know what they want and only have you to validate their lives—that’s not interesting to me. You should not be threatened by women who are pretty and charismatic and good at what they do…my girlfriends have shaped me more in the past year and a half than any other factor.

I’ve never had more friends who I can trust and rely on, but there’s always a bit of your self-perception that’s frozen in junior high, when you trained yourself to not feel cool. You never really feel like you’re a part of the ‘in’ crowd, but growing up means that matters to you less and less every day.”

I mean, look, Taylor is pedantic as hell sometimes, but I still like her. Young girls who look up to her and do read the positive shit she says will take that to heart a lot of times, and that’s what matters – even if us actual adults realize that she’s pretty full of shit.

Taylor Swift talks feminism and Emma Watson haters

Taylor Swift is feeling feminism lately and is being vocal about her support of her fellow ladies. In fact, while being interviewed on France’s Tout Le Monde En Parle, Taylor discussed Emma Watson‘s recent UN speech and the hate (and threats) she received as a result:

In case you can’t watch the video (or just don’t have the patience to do so), here’s a bit of what Taylor had to say:

“I wish when I was 12 years old, I had been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful poignant way the definition of feminism,” Swift said. “Because I would have understood it and then earlier on in my life I would have proudly claimed that I was a feminist.”

The singer explained that “so many girls out there say ‘I’m not a feminist’ cause they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining. They picture like rioting and picketing, it is not that at all, it just simply means that you believe that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities and to say that you’re not a feminist means that you think men should have more rights and opportunities than women.”

“I just think that a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it, I think it’s an incredible thing and I am happy to live in a world where that happened,” Swift noted of the HeforShe campaign.

I mean, that’s all a bit simplified, but I get what she’s going for and I think her young fans will, as well. The whole video is worth watching, since she talks a bit about Miley Cyrus, as well.
