One thing the 23-year-old is apparently adamant about are the rumors regarding her and younger men. In Feb. 2013, the singer declared, "I never chase boys!" This is reference to her alleged relationships with 19-year-old Harry Styles of One Direction, 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, a Deerfield Academy boarding school high school student she supposedly dated when she was 22, and "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner who was 17 years old when he supposedly had a brief relationship with a 20-year-old Swift.
Swift is tired of all the talk in the media and she apparently made a remark in reference to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who hosted the 2013 Golden globes.
In Vanity Fair, Swift said, "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."
One wonders if this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Swift is famous for dissing men she has dated in her music, including allegedly mocking Harry Styles on stage with a British accent when she sang "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
Her most apparent diss was at 35-year-old John Mayer in her song "Dear John." Said Mayer to Rolling Stone, "It made me feel terrible because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
If Swift doesn't want statements made about her to the public, even as a joke, should she refrain from criticizing various men she dated in her music?
"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," said Swift.
Do you think Swift has a point?
