TAYLOR SWIFT opens up about love (again) and her new boyfriend, CONOR KENNEDY, for the first time in the new issue of Rolling Stone.
We’ve seen Taylor Swift pack on the PDA with her fairly new (and younger) boyfriend, Conor Kennedy, and heard all sorts of news about them including meeting each others’ parents and living in the same area in Massachusetts. But for the first time, she spoke about him in a cover story with Rolling Stone.
The country songstress first admits that she doesn’t mind the four-year age difference between them. She explained to the magazine:
The way I look at love is you have to follow it, and fall hard, if you fall hard. You have to forget about what everyone else thinks. It has to be an us-against-the-world mentality. You have to make it work by prioritizing it, and by falling in love really fast, without thinking too hard.”
“If I think too hard about a relationship I’ll talk myself out of it. … I have rules for a lot of areas of my life. Love is not going to be one of them.”
Taylor also took the chance to deny rumors that involved Conor, such as when she allegedly crashed an exclusive Kennedy family wedding in August. She said:
“I have no idea what happened there. 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.”
About the claim that Taylor had “kidnapped” Conor when he was in her Nashville hometown, she answered:
“How did I kidnap him? You can’t kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now! It’s an interesting way to spin something into a story. See, this is why I don’t read stuff.”
It’s true–she may have liked getting news about herself during the first few years of her career but she’d rather turn a blind eye (and a deaf ear) to it now. Taylor said:
“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.”
