BREAKING: Taylor Swift Talks About Love

A photo of Taylor Swift

I’m just going to tell you guys the same thing that I’ve had to tell my mom over and over: I love you, I really do, and I respect your opinions, and I’m so thankful for all you’ve done for me, but I’m a grown woman, I can make my own choices, and I need you to get off my jock. That’s what I’ve told her every single time she’s questioned one of my life choices, and that’s what I’m telling you now. I love talking about Taylor Swift. Probably I’ll never stop talking about Taylor Swift. But I need you to love me and accept me in spite of that.

Like, ok, if you work in a restaurant, don’t you ever sample some food? If you work in an office, haven’t you taken a few pens home on occasion? Taylor Swift is my office supply. And I will always take it.

Oh, but let’s discuss her stupid new interview now, all right?

On not remembering all her true loves: “I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate. How many times has she been in love? I don’t know how many people I’ve said ‘I love you’ to. I could probably count it up, but I don’t feel like it. Part of me feels you can’t say you were truly in love if it didn’t last. If I end up getting married and having kids, that’s when I’ll know it’s real—because it lasted.”

Tay Tay doesn’t think things through: “I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t. I don’t think it through, really, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’”

On her beloved bad boys: “There’s a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore.”

Oh, shut your silly mouth, Taylor Swift! I would tell you to get over yourself, but how could I when that’s something that I so obviously cannot do myself?

But Of Course Taylor Swift is Buying a House Near Her New Boyfriend

She’s just so predictable, isn’t she? This new-ish boyfriend, though, One Direction’s Harry Styles, must really be something special, because she waited, what, actual weeks to find a house next to her ex-boyfriend, Conor Kennedy? Yep, this one, this Harry Styles boy, has just definitely got to be The One, and isn’t that lucky for all of us—Taylor especially?

Sources say that Taylor is browsing property in North London, where Harry himself just bought a house earlier in the year. Sources are even going as far to say that Taylor is conferring with Harry on which properties are best, so she’s even giving him an official heads-up that she’s going to be living probable blocks away. He hasn’t run away screaming yet, so that’s promising, isn’t it?

From the Daily Mail:

A source told LOOK magazine: ‘She’s been interested in buying a house in the UK for a while. But after months of not really mentioning it, Taylor’s suddenly instructed an estate to get on it ASAP!
‘She’s even asked Harry if he’ll come and look at some places with her, since he knows the area.’

The insider added: ‘Taylor says the reason things fizzled out last time [they dated] was because they had no time together. I’m sure their recent contact is behind her sudden enthusiasm to buy in London. She says they’ll be able to pick up where they left off.’

You guys will remember, of course, that little Conor Kennedy isn’t the first boyfriend she purchased a house near, whether it’s purely coincidence or not. Taylor owns a house just down the road from John Mayer, and when she was dating Jake Gyllenhaal, she lured him to her very own compound in Nashville for weeks at a time, rumored to be hoping that he’d love the area her so much that he’d plunk down some cash for his own bit of real estate near her, too. It’s apparent that when her plan backfired, she decided to take matters into her own hands and start stalking all of her resulting boyfriend prospects via property acquisition, one state and continent at a time.

Psst. It’s working—we’re talking total world domination here, guys.

DID TAYLOR SWIFT DYE HER HAIR?!

A photo of Taylor Swift

Don’t freak out, but I think maybe she actually did. This very hilarious photo was taken on the set of Taylor‘s new music video, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” but every single report I’ve read about this claims that she actually did cut her hair and dye the tips pink. It could all be a lie, of course. As we all know, celebrity gossip is fickle bitch, and there’s no real way of telling what’s true and what’s not.

Except in this case, probably. If you know about hair, you can probably tell if she’s wearing a wig or not. So is she?

Bonus question: how do you bleach your roots? I can bleach my whole head by myself, but everything I’ve read about bleaching your roots just says to use lots of clips to get different sections of your hair, and I don’t have enough hair to clip. Help, friends!

Taylor Swift Has a New Boyfriend That People Are Going to be All Angry Over

From People:

“I had to literally do a double-take,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE of finding Styles, 18, with Swift, 22, on the set of The X Factor Thursday morning.

Styles was on hand to watch Swift rehearse the debut of “State of Grace,” which she performed later that night on the Fox reality show.

“He was smiling at her while she rehearsed. When she was done he jumped up on stage, picked her up, put her over his shoulder and carried her off stage,” the onlooker says. “The whole crew was really surprised.”

The young singers were also spotted by X Factor host Mario Lopez, who says he was slapped on the back by Styles during Swift’s rehearsal.

“I said, ‘What are you doing here,’ ” Lopez said on his 104.3 MY FM radio show Friday. “And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor.”

Lopez went on to say he later saw the two “hand-in-hand.”

A telling sign of the budding relationship may have been a look Styles shared with his bandmate Niall Horan a week earlier after Horan told PEOPLE his favorite song of 2012 was Swift’s “Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

When asked if he would ever date Swift, Horan gave a small laugh, looked at Styles and answered with a succinct, “no.”

Oh good grief. Can’t wait to see how this one plays out. I mean, do you realize that Taylor Swift‘s dated the following people: Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Cory Monteith, Toby Hemingway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zac Efron, Garrett Hedlund, Eddie Redmayne, Conor Kennedy, and now, One Direction’s Harry Styles. Who’s next? Is there many top-notch young men out there who haven’t dated Taylor Swift, or who, at least, haven’t been pursued by her? I’m not calling her a slut by any means, because damn. Those are some enviable dudes (Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Garrett Hedlund are definitely most impressive) and you know what? F-ck these backhanded little songs that she writes and performs—I want her to write a damn book detailing this this, because seriously. You just can’t make it up. Know what she should title it, too? I’m thinking something like this: ‘The Girl With the Golden Gitch’. That sounds about right.

Taylor Swift Wears Pants

A photo of Taylor Swift

It’s true, believe it or not! Taylor Swift wears pants sometimes instead of dresses, and that’s the most important thing about her, according to this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Girl wears pants. Literally and figuratively.

Let’s read her interview together, shall we?

On dresses (not pants): “There’s just something so feminine about a dress. Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife—which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason—I just really like dresses.”

On wearing pants for the photo shoot: I think doing something that’s different, that’s out of your comfort zone is important. Personal growth, let’s call it that.”

On her BFFs: “We never talk about fashion, about career, about our ambitions or our projects. We just talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.”

On the terrifying nature of pants in relationships: “It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up.” Relationships are “the ultimate collaboration,” she adds, but sometimes “it’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.”

On blogs: “What I had to learn to do, in order to maintain a general happiness in my life, was to stop reading everything. And then it gets really bad if you go through a breakup and those blogs have these polls asking, ‘Who should they date next?’ And you’re just sitting there staring at the laptop bawling.”

On booooys: “Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction.”

On writing songs about boooooys: “Despite all of that and how unpleasant it is, as a writer you get a lot from it. It’s a crazy justification system. You know that guy you really wish you could erase from your memory? But then the answer is track six, eight, 12, and 13.”

Every Taylor Swift interview makes me want to shove my head in an oven, and this one is no exception, but her obvious psycho tendencies are always so baffling to me. This girl will be 23 years old in a month and she STILL talks like this. She doesn’t talk about careers or ambitions or anything else with her friends besides BOYS. And she basically admitted that she used to read gossip blogs about herself and cry. And she referred to wearing pants as something that is out of her comfort zone. Ugh. Ugh for days.

Check out the gallery, where Taylor will shock you with her many pairs of pants.

Taylor Swift Is Still Texting Her Kennedy, Probably Still Loves Him

A photo of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy

This is just, like, so inspirational. Taylor Swift is living proof that you don’t just give up on your soulmate, even if he is just a high school junior, and even if you’ve only dated him for a couple of months, and even if he’s the eighth soulmate that’s come into your life. She knows what’s important, and she’s willing to fight for what she wants. And what she wants is the surname of Kennedy. No, no, sorry. What she wants is the other half of her heart, Conor Kennedy.

They’re still texting!!!

A source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “She is still in contact with Conor  mostly through text. They still flirt over emails but mostly texts. So there is definitely still a chance of them getting together in the future. Her schedule is still way too busy which is effecting everything in relationship terms. Time will tell.”

I believe you, source close to the situation! I’m glad that you took the time to clear this up for us, because I know we were all wondering about it! It seemed like Taylor found such a kindred spirit in Conor, and it seemed so sad that they had to take a break because Taylor was just way too busy singing about her former boyfriends. But now we don’t have to be sad anymore! Now that we know that Taylor never stopped sending Conor winky faces for him to check between classes, it feels like our hearts can keep right on beating.

And you know, if things don’t work out, Taylor can still probably land Ethel Kennedy. After all, a Kennedy is a Kennedy, right?

Taylor Swift is a Plagiarist

One thing I never get sick of is hearing about—and subsequently writing—negative Taylor Swift press. It really gets me going in a way that coffee just can’t. It’s a visceral ‘zing!’; an instant high. And in this case? Well, this might last me for the rest of the day. Taylor Swift—the very precious, darling, innocent Taylor Swift—has been accused of ripping off lyrics from another artist. The songwriter in question is Matt Nathanson, and Taylor’s never made it a secret that she really, really admires his work, but this time, she’s admired it so hard that it somehow ended up verbatim in one of her songs.

Taylor’s most recent single, ‘All Too Well’, has a lyric that states … well, this: “and I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to.” And Nathanson wrote a song back in 2003 called ‘I Saw’, and it has a lyric in it that says this: “and I’ll forget about you long enough to forget why I need to.” The only real difference, you see, is that Taylor went and changed the word “needed” to “need” and “I’ll” to “I.” Because that takes all copyright infringements away, right? Yeah, I guess she would think that.

It gets better, though—when Nathanson saw that Taylor had ripped one of his lyrics, he didn’t just sit back and take the flattery: he took his gripe to Twitter, where followers of Taylor positively tried to eviscerate Matt, telling him he was a prick. This is what Matt had to say on Twitter that set Taylor’s followers afire:

“She’s definitely a fan… and now she’s a thief.”

Can I tell you how hard I love this? Reps for Taylor have yet to release a statement, but I hope to God that Matt Nathanson has the balls to go forward and file a lawsuit or a claim or something against this silly little ho, because really. STICK IT TO TAYLOR SWIFT.
