So, boys, are you intimidated by Taylor Swift‘s prowess? I could see why you might be – she’s been a worldwide megastar since she was barely a teenager and her list of former boyfriends is longer than my arm. To add to it, she’s not shy about putting relationships gone awry into her music, so if you take one wrong step, you could become the subject of her next hit single.
Whether or not men are a bit shy around her, or even put off by her power, she doesn’t know and tries not to think about it, as she told Hello magazine. After all, she’s a traditional girl and any guy who wants a chance with her would probably have to start talking to her first (thereby negating the whole ‘indimidation’ thing, I suppose):
“I suppose it might [be intimidating]. It’s not like I would look at a guy and say, ‘Hey, are you intimidated by me?’ I think that would be highly uncool on my part! I tend not to be the one to start conversations with guys, anyway. I’m a little more old-fashioned than that.
“I assume that if someone is interested in me they will come up and talk to me – and if they want to call me up afterwards, then they will. I try not to wishfully think my way into relationships – or maybe I should say I’m trying not to do that anymore.”
I think that’s all fair enough, but I have to say, I find it SO bizarre and vaguely disgusting how incestual the celebrity dating pool is. Taylor used to date John Mayer, who we all know is now dating Katy Perry, but Taylor and Katy are good friends and have been for years. I know that kinda shit happens – friends date their friends’ exes quite often, I suppose? – but I just think it’s weird and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Anyway, I do love me some TaySwift. I think she’s great! And sometimes, you know, she helps you through the hard times. Isn’t that right, Jess?
