Taylor Swift is finally firing back at Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for their bit about her during the Golden Globes.
In the April issue of Vanity Fair, Swift opened up about the Golden Globes moment and some misconceptions about her highly publicized love life.
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift told the magazine. “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Guess Swift didn’t find Fey and Poehler’s jokes to be all that funny. But the audience did. And Swift told the magazine she’s well aware many find her relationship ups and downs to be entertaining.
But she said that she is not the serial dater that everyone sees her as.
“If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” she said, in a rare moment of openness about her love life. “[T]he 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.”
And though Swift refuses to get into the specifics of her various breakups, she said she thinks there is nothing wrong with writing about them in her songs.
“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated—a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way—that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”
And something else that’s apparently peeved the pop singer? Those pesky rumors that she was shopping for a house near ex-boyfriend Conor Kennedy’s home.
“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.” Swift vented to the magazine. “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.”
Though Swift refused to talk about her most recent breakup –with One Direction singer Harry Styles—an unnamed source was “authorized” to talk about it with Vanity Fair.
“He wore her down,” the source said of Styles, adding that he “chased” the songstress before she agreed to date him. “He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing—I want to be with you. I want to do this.’”
Shortly after they began dating, the source claims he was spotted kissing another girl and though Styles and Swift reconciled, she worried he was “looking at every girl.” The relationship eventually fell apart.
Styles’s rep, Benny Tarantini told the mag that the source’s claims are “undeniably false.”
