The Kennedys Don’t Love Taylor Swift So Much Anymore

Taylor Swift has a problem, you guys. She has a Kennedy problem. I don’t know if she’s just super into the whole idea of American royalty or if she’s never heard about that curse thing, but she’s got a serious problem. That’s the only reason I can think of why Taylor would do what she did.

Well, ok, that made it sound a little more serious than it really is. Taylor Swift hasn’t carved Conor’s name into her arm or tied Conor down and branded her name on his chest, and she hasn’t been poking holes in condoms, and she hasn’t been caught making out with pictures of JFK (that we know of). No, she just crashed a wedding. But in a really, really creepy way.

From People:

Victoria Gifford Kennedy is claiming the 22-year-old Grammy award winner crashed her daughter Kyle’s wedding in Boston on Saturday.

The mother of the bride says Swift’s beau, Conor, was invited to her daughter’s nuptials to Liam Kerr, but failed to RSVP.

“[Swift and Conor] texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come. I responded with a very clear ‘Please do not come.’ They came anyway,” she tells the Boston Herald.

“I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her and asked her as nicely as I could to leave,” she adds. “It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me.”

But Swift’s rep, Paula Erickson, tells the paper that Gifford Kennedy’s claims are totally bogus.

“Taylor was invited to the wedding and the bride thanked her profusely for being there,” she said.

Prior to this incident, the Kennedy family has treated Swift warmly and welcomed her into the fold.

“She’s awesome,” Conor’s aunt, Rory Kennedy, said of the singer earlier this summer. “She’s a great friend of all of ours.”

Yeah, I’m going to trust the mother of the bride on this one. How weird, right? And rude and creepy and so many other things. Especially the part where “it was like talking to a ghost.” Like Taylor was so entranced by being at a big, official, real life Kennedy affair that she couldn’t focus on anything. It’s one (extremely rude) thing if you show up to a wedding after someone asks you not to, but to ignore them when they ask you to leave? Did Taylor Swift just pull her very first bitch move?

  • Obviously it was MORE rude of Conor to bring his date unannounced. Taylor is a country ass hick; she can’t be expected to know the etiquette of Kennedy events. Conor certainly knew but no one publicly chastised the handsome Kennedy boy.

    • Joannie, you read my mind. Sure, the Kennedys are nice and friendly with her. They have no reason not to be. They know good and hell well (and maybe Conor does, too) that there is no way they’re going to allow that backwoods bumpkin DNA anywhere near their blue blood gene pool! Happy slumming, Conor!

  • I’m all for some Taylor bashing just as much as the next person but Taylor Swift grew up in Pennsylvania with a father who was a financial adviser for Marrill Lynch. A quick wiki search will show her life/ upbringing, it certainly does not a country bumpkin make.

  • What’s with all the Southern country bashing? You don’t have to be born in a southern state to be classless and rude. The history of the Kennedy men is nothing to get excited about if you’re going to compare bumpkins to blue bloods.

  • …..excuse me! I’m a country bumpkin, and I know better than to invite myself, and would never ignore a request for one to leave! It has nothing to do with being any kind of country bumpkin…it has all to do with the manners, and class from which you are raised! Money is NOT class…believe me! I’ve seen a lot of the most ill mannered, hateful, low class people with money than you can imagine! It’s how you’re raised!
