Taylor Swift for Vanity Fair [April 2013]
On the media’s portrayal of her: “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.”
On her dating life: “If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people, [Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy].”
A source on Taylor’s relationship with Harry Styles: “‘He wore her down,’ the source says of Styles, who allegedly ‘chased’ Swift for a year. ‘He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing—I want to be with you. I want to do this.’’ The relationship fell apart after he texted Swift to alert her of a picture on the Internet of him kissing a friend good-bye. They were ‘making out like with their hands all up in each other’s hair,’ says the source. After Swift ended the relationship, he pursued her for the better part of a year until she finally took him back. ‘But the whole time she says she feels like he’s looking at every girl,’ the source continues. And then when they were in London together he ‘disappears one night and after that it was like he just didn’t want to keep going.’”
note: Taylor authorized this “source” to speak on her behalf.
