Taylor Swift has certainly been in a loquacious mood lately. In a recent interview, Conor Kennedy’s lady-love talked about the evils of one night stands and other hook-ups. In a later interview, she explained what really happened when she allegedly crashed the Kennedy wedding.
In an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, John Mayer’s nemesis revealed how she really feels about “flings.” While she’s known for writing songs about her many relationships with famous guys who always seem to dump her–er–turn out to be unworthy of her love, La Swift “doesn’t believe in hookups.”
“No,” she preached–er–revealed, “Where’s the romance? Where’s the magic in that? I’m just not that girl.”
Apparently not. It would be rather difficult to write a Grammy-winning song about a one-time, straightforward, sexual connection that was devoid of mind games, drama, or emotional enmeshment. Whatever.
After setting the record straight about one night stands, Pearl Pureheart took on the task of explaining her alleged Kennedy wedding crashing. For those who can’t seem (or refuse) to remember as far back as August 18, Swift and her trophy boyfriend, Conor Kennedy, created “a huge scandal” by showing up at a Kennedy wedding even though Vicki Kennedy had made it abundantly clear that they were not invited. Seriously, Vicki Kennedy replied to Swift’s text pleading for an invite with four words: “Please do not come.” When Swift, nevertheless showed up, making a grand, and highly disruptive diva-like entrance, the Kennedy family was appalled. Taylor reportedly remained oblivious to the “drama” she was causing even when she was asked to leave twice. Finally, Conor took her hand and whisked her away. Ouch.
So, what does the country sweetheart have to say about the incident now? Actually, she still seems pretty clueless. And she’s not very apologetic either.
“I have no idea what happened there,” she mused. “I think that story was based on the biggest misunderstanding, ’cause I would never knowingly show up somewhere that I thought I wasn’t invited to. And I would never want to upstage anybody.”
As for the embarrassing press the incident inevitably generated, Taylor confessed she never reads articles about herself, and she hasn’t Googled herself since 2010.
“I don’t think anyone is ever truly viewed as only one thing,” she opined, “as only good, as only well-behaved, as only respectful. In the beginning, when there would be a tiny news story about something that wasn’t true, I thought that meant my fans weren’t gonna show up to my next concert. But now, knock on wood…I feel like my fans have my back and I have theirs.”
So, there you have it. The world according to Taylor Swift. She disapproves of hookups, and her mistakes are all mere misunderstandings. Because in the end, nothing really matters except keeping her fan base and raking in the millions. And that’s O.K. Making money is the bottom line with practically everything. You have to admire La Pureheart’s chutzpah. Still, it sort of makes you miss Kanye West.
