Taylor Swift has finally opened up about the media distortion of her image and love life. In an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, she comes out to express how fed up she is with the tabloid media culture that takes her love life, scrutinizes it, and blows it out of proportion. She also addresses some important issues such as the one where people are calling her a serial dater and calling her boy crazy.
The interview also reveals some stuff that has got to do with her super high-profile relationship and then super high-profile breakup with One Direction’s Harry Styles. And by that, we mean what really went down.
Taylor said of the rumours about her being a serial dater and constantly buying houses near the guy she’s dating at the time:
If you want some big revelation, since 2010, I have dated exactly two people. The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with..it’s just kind of ridiculous.
People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like – that’s a thing that I apparently do. If I like you I will apparently buy up the real estate market just to freak you out so you leave me. One of these things I say to myself to calm myself down when I feel like it’s all too much, “If there’s a pregnancy rumor, people will find out it’s not true when you wind up not being pregnant, like nine months from now, and if there’s a house rumor, they’ll find out it’s not true when you are actively not ever spotted at that house”.
About Harry Styles, Taylor might not have openly discussed it during the Vanity Fair interview but she did allow an authorized source to talk about what went down during the relationship. The source said that in the beginning, before their full-fledged romance in 2012, Harry Styles apparently wore Taylor down:
He was all, like, “You’re amazing—I want to be with you. I want to do this.” The relationship fell apart after he texted Swift to alert her of a picture on the Internet of him kissing a friend good-bye. They were making out like with their hands all up in each other’s hair. After she ended the relationship, he pursued her for the better part of a year until she finally took him back. But the whole time she says she feels like he’s looking at every girl. And then when they were in London together he disappears one night and after that it was like he just didn’t want to keep going.
And of Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriends, the source said, “She sated Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer when she was really young and they were in their 30s, and she got really hurt. So it was like, ‘That hurt – this won’t’. But then it did”.
Aww. Poor Taylor. Props to her for finally opening up about the rumours. For what it’s worth, we hope she finds happiness soon – she deserves it!
