Poor, poor Taylor Swift. I’ve been worrying about her ever since her boyfriend started his senior year of high school a couple of weeks ago. All I’ve been able to do is just keep her in my thoughts and hope that she’s able to make it to homecoming, and I feel so powerless.
But there’s been no reason to fret, because just this past weekend, Taylor was able to take some time to head to Massachusetts, where she took little Conor Kennedy antiquing!
As summer winds down, Taylor Swift’s work schedule is revving up. And while her new love Conor Kennedy has already gone back to school, the couple, whose romance heated up over the summer, did not stay apart for long.
On Saturday, Swift, 22, and Kennedy, 18, headed for the intimately lit Taylor’s Tavern & Restaurant in Greenfield, Mass., a quaint New England town only a few miles from Kennedy’s prep school in Deerfield.
“They were very happy and very polite,” says a source. “She was very sweet.”
The young duo, who have spent a lot of time together in the past few months, enjoyed a warm, sunny weekend in a scenic part of Massachusetts dotted with farm stands and country stores. Kennedy and Swift also indulged in a classic country pastime, antiquing.
Paying a visit to Deerfield’s Old Station Antiques on Saturday, they browsed together in the store not far from Kennedy’s dorm, according to a source.
On Sunday, Swift once again had to say goodbye. She left late in the afternoon – as Kennedy presumably prepared for Monday morning classes.
OMG, do you think she helped him with his homework? Do you think she’s secretly really good at chemistry or calculus or something like that? Nah, she probably just sits on his floor and plays with her hair and keeps saying “math is hard, ha ha,” over and over again.

OK, well I don’t know if she’s actually crying over it, but I wouldn’t put it past her, hell no.
Is Conor Kennedy just one of Taylor Swift’s boys of summer?
The PDA-loving pair seemed attached at the hip in recent weeks, but with Swift, 22, facing a grueling work schedule, and Kennedy, 18, back to his East Coast high school, the two are being forced to live their lives apart.
On Thursday, the country singer appeared on MTV’s Video Music Awards in L.A., where she performed her latest single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” live for the first time. Meanwhile, her beau was having dinner at his boarding school, Deerfield Academy, according to a source.
Can I tell you that this Deerfield Academy place is a “college preparatory school”? Which means that Conor, Taylor’s mini-beau, is still in high school. And what’s hotter than that? I’ll tell you what’s hotter than that—it’s being called “one of Taylor Swift‘s boys of summer,” because it’s way, way more than just that. Oh yes. If Taylor has her way, Conor will be “one of Taylor Swift’s boys of FOREVER,” and let’s be honest: there’s nothing more attractive than requited, obsessive love.

Oh, of course. Of course Taylor Swift‘s shitty new song would be about Jake Gyllenhaal. Who, if you’ll please remember, she dated two years ago for about a month. I can’t even believe this girl sometimes.
From Us Weekly via Celebitchy:
Taylor Swift is never, ever, ever getting back together with . . . Jake Gyllenhaal. Sources tell Hot Stuff the singer’s latest hit is influenced by her 2010 fling with the actor, 31.
“It’s definitely about Jake,” an insider says. In “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” she sings about an ex who comes back to say, “Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change.”
(Gyllenhaal flew to Nashville three weeks after their split to attempt a reunion.)
Swift has been dropping hints too: The song’s video features an actor who resembles Gyllenhaal, and in a promo clip for the September 6 MTV Video Music Awards, she jokes about the hit with host Kevin Hart, who pastes his own face on a photo of the then-couple.
Despite her past dramas, Swift, 22, is pushing forward with new love Conor Kennedy, 18. She’s even lining up promotion for her CD Red (out October 22) with the Deerfield Academy senior’s schedule. Adds the insider, “She’s working around his school holidays!”
There are a few other signs too: at the end of the video, Taylor’s boyfriend is wearing a blue vest, AND JAKE OWNS ONE TOO. Taylor also wears a gold bracelet in the video, and – you guessed it – Jake gave her one just like it. As if we needed more proof, you know that pivotal scene in the video where the guy gives Taylor his scarf? Jake did that too. That photo up at the very top? If you look closely, you can see that Taylor is wearing a striped scarf. And you guys. That’s Jake’s scarf.
Here’s that embarrassing music video for you to analyze, in case you missed it the first time around:
And here’s the VMA promo:
Yeah, I’ll buy it. Poor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Taylor Swift has ALREADY been accepted as a member of the Kennedy family … so says former U.S. Representative Patrick Kennedy … who tells TMZ the family is THRILLED she’s dating Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son.
TMZ was out in Charlotte, North Carolina yesterday when we ran into Rep. Kennedy … and asked him how he felt about 18-year-old Conor Kennedy’s blossoming relationship with the 22-year-old singer.
“We love Taylor Swift … she’s been a great friend and we’re happy for Conor.”
Kennedy continued, “If she wants to be in the family, she’s already a part of it.”
Taylor and Conor have been virtually inseparable for the past couple of months … with Taylor even accompanying Kennedy to visit his mother’s grave after she passed away back in May.
I’m so glad that Patrick here said this about Tay Tay! For one, it means that at least a few members of the Kennedy family still like her, which means that she still has a very good shot of fulfilling her lifelong dream of creeping and stalking her way into the Kennedy family. And for two, it means that Taylor has a really, really great quote to put in her Kennedy scrapbook, and this will also give her an extra reason to smile when she spends all her spare time doodling hearts and more different hearts and practices different ways of writing “Mrs. Taylor Kennedy.” Everybody wins!

From Us Weekly:
For years, Taylor Swift has harbored a not-so-secret infatuation with her new boyfriend Conor Kennedy’s iconic family. “She’s obsessed with the family,” a pal tells Us Weekly. One insider adds that Conor’s cousin Ted Kennedy Jr. even calls the country crooner a “Kennedy groupie!”
The 22-year-old “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer first grew enamored while watching the 2011 miniseries The Kennedys, then began collecting memorabilia for her Nashville and Beverly Hills pads and boning up on the clan’s history.
“I just read a 900-page book called The Kennedy Women,” she raved to Rolling Stone last summer. Months later, Rory Kennedy reached out to Swift for concert tickets, and Swift turned up at January’s Sundance Film Festival to catch a screening of Ethel, Rory’s HBO documentary about her mom (and Conor’s grandmother).
Her persistence paid off.
Rory invited Swift to visit the family’s compound for 4th of July weekend, where she met Conor, 18. “She’s a great friend of all of ours,” says Rory. “She’s awesome, and we love her.”
Sources close to Swift tell Us that she’s already fallen hard for Conor, despite their extremely brief courtship. “She’s head over heels,” one insider told Us recently of the country cutie. “[Conor's] a smart, sensitive guy.”
“She says it’s a fantasy come true,” the source adds. “[Taylor] is very smitten.”
Really, this isn’t anything that we didn’t already know, but isn’t it just so creepy to hear all the details? Here, I’ll condense it even further for you: Taylor watched the miniseries about the Kennedys, collects Kennedy memorabilia, and reads books about the Kennedys. Wouldn’t that creep you out? I mean, if you were Conor, or any close member of the family. I might have said this before (I’ve definitely thought it before), but if Taylor was a dude, she would be getting so much flack for this. And she really should.
And just think, poor Conor is barely 18 years old, and he’s still in high school. His mother killed herself in May. He must be going through a lot, and then creepy ol’ Taylor Swift swoops in because she has some weird fetish for his family and lets him touch her boob and now he’s so in love. And that’s shady.
But here, I’ll leave it up to you guys …

From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:
Taylor Swift is storming her way into Camelot, already making plans to marry 18-year-old Conor Kennedy and have his child as quickly as possible. Swift is obsessed with becoming the next Jackie Kennedy, say sources. And while she’s close to Ethel Kennedy, other members of the powerful dynasty are ready to go to war with Swift to keep her out of the family.
“It’s World War III. Many of the Kennedys loathe Taylor and don’t want anything to do with her,” said a Kennedy family insider. “They think she’s using her fame as a singer to worm her way into the fold… Taylor badly wants to marry Conor and have a Kennedy baby. She sees herself as the next Jackie O and aims to become as famous as she was, a style icon on a world stage.”
Conor and Taylor are now discussing a walk down the aisle next spring.
“Taylor’s already looking for the perfect wedding dress… she wants a vintage ‘60s gown. Conor is besotted with Taylor and insists the relationship is for real.”
Meanwhile, Conor’s dad Robert Junior has been caught up in his own red-hot affair with Cheryl Hines – and there is “nobody to sit Conor down and tell him he’s too young and should take it easy.”
“But it’s not wonder he’s so smitten – just think, here’s a boy who lost his mom in the most tragic circumstances, his dad’s busy romancing a Hollywood star and Taylor is not the main female in his life.”
“Taylor is banking on Ethel’s approval for a marriage, and then she’ll have Conor’s baby. She can’t wait to cradle that baby – it would be her passport into Kennedy history,” declared the insider. And Conor? “He thinks they’ll split their time between Massachusetts and Nashville and that they’ll live happily ever after. But he hasn’t even started college yet!”
This would be one of the rare Enquirer stories that I totally believe. Maybe the Kennedys will be able to keep Taylor out of the family, maybe one of Taylor’s people will talk some sense into her, but I can definitely see her thinking this way, and I can, without a shadow of a doubt, see her trying on wedding dresses at this very moment. She’s just the kind of girl who dates an 18-year-old high school senior for a month and a half and then starts planning the wedding, you know?
