Did Taylor Swift really ditch her old friends after becoming famous?

Apparently, Taylor Swift has gotten a big head these past few years, at least according to a March 24, 2014 National Enquirer report.

As the Enquirer reports, although Swift gives off the appearance of being down-to-earth and unassuming, she has allowed fame to get to her head. "Within the past few years, she's become a completely different person. Once she joined the celebrity 'in' crowd, Taylor either turned her back on her old friends completely or gave them only limited access through 'her people.'"

The report also talked about how the "22" singer had turned her back on former friend, Gerry House, a Nashville radio personality who had met her when she was 15, and had helped launch her career by giving her songs airplay.

Gossip Cop denied the Enquirer report as "unequivocally wrong," saying that the country cutie still hangs out with her oldest pals.

Gossip Cop also cited several examples, including her 24th birthday celebration, which included old friends as well as celebrities.

The country superstar hasn't lost touch with her Nashville roots. This month, she talked about why she considered Nashville her home.

As she explained, "choosing to have my management company based in Nashville just made sense because my family is there as well as my record label. I never think about moving home bases. It’s hard to describe why you consider a town your home base, except that when people ask me 'Where’s home?,' I don’t even think before I say 'Nashville.'"

In December, Swift was named's most charitable celebrity of 2013. Her notable acts of philanthropy included a $100,000 donation to the financially-struggling Nashville Symphony. The orchestra had experienced a difficult year, having narrowly escaped foreclosure on their concert hall.

Do you believe the Enquirer story? Has Taylor Swift allowed fame to get to her head? Or is she still the same sweet country girl who hasn't lost touch with her Nashville roots?
