Taylor Swift wants babies: ‘I want a bunch of them running around, minimum four’

Quick question: what are the thoughts on polka dotted skinny jeans? I have a general dislike for skinny jeans, but I will accept them on slender, leggy girls like Taylor Swift – she’s got the body type for them, so God bless. But polka dots? Eh. It feels… Duchess Kate-like? I could see Duchess Kate in these jeans. Oh, and one more thing: KITTY SHOES!

BAM! And just like that, we all realized that Taylor Swift is the kind of person that buys not one but TWO pairs of kitty-face flats. She was wearing the white pair the other day, in Paris. You know what? I bet my mom would love a pair of these. But a 22 year old woman who is boning an 18-year-old high school junior? Eh.

Meanwhile, I’m still playing catch-up on some of the Taylor Swift stories that dropped earlier this week. Remember how Swifty was allegedly confirmed for the role of Joni Mitchell? Well, Swifty says that NO, she hasn’t been confirmed:

According to Taylor Swift, she has not secured the role of Joni Mitchell in the upcoming biopic, Girls Like Us. Previous reports said that Swift had gotten the role in the film which follows the careers and lives of Mitchell, Carole King and Carly Simon.

“I’m not confirmed, actually,” the pop-country crossover phenom told Country Weekly.

“You never want to talk about something like that until it is a definite thing. I would love to tell that story. It would be amazing. It would be an interesting, fascinating, incredibly intelligent and wonderful character to play, but nothing is confirmed right now.”

Alison Pill and Olivia Thirlby are said to be in the running to play King, while Alison Williams (Girls) and Jessica Pare (Mad Men) are vying for the role of Simon.

Hm. I’m not going to analyze this to death and game what it means for this project or for Swifty. Maybe it was just some dude who was like, “Yeah, we’ve totally got Swifty on board for Joni Mitchell, CONFIRMED!” Also: I kind of love the idea of Alison Pill for Carole King.

And finally, I give you one more quote from Taylor’s Marie Claire interview. She was talking about all of the money she’s making, and the conversation turned to kids and when she wants to become a mom, and this is what she said: “That money will be really good for sending my kids to college some day – or maybe I’ll have a few more kids than I thought. I want a bunch of them running around, minimum four. I want to wait a while, but the idea of pouring everything you are into another person when you become a parent has always been amazing to me. That factors into everything I do. They’re going to have computers and they’re going to be able to read what I said in this interview.” Swifty wants four kids or more. And she already knows that her Kennedy children (I said it) will be readin’ the intertubes. *insert Swifty OMGOSH face*

    Oh, I just had a disturbing thought; whe- IF!!! If. Oh, please be an ‘if’ …
    Anyway, *if* Swifty becomes a mother, I could totally see her becoming a rabid hybrid of Goop, Kerr and Gisele.
    Birth shaming dressed in sparkles, unicorns and rainbows.
    I give the jeans a pass. The dots are subtle enough not to be Minnie Mouse-ish.

  2. Brown says:

    Love love love the bag.

    I love dogs but you wouldn’t catch my ass parading around in some puppy face flats. Weirdo.

  3. Lou says:

    Alexa chung wears those shoes as well, i love them. They’re fun and young, i don’t associate them with grannies at all!

  4. daisydoodle says:

    those kitty shoes are cute…my daughter had a pair when she was a baby….really cute with tights with ruffles on the butt, I’ll wait if she does the same thing.

  5. Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

    I love the kitty shoes! Where can I get them? :D

  6. Sara says:

    I’m 26 and I would love a pair of those shoes.

  7. kingkayski says:

    Princess of Camelot wannabe.

  8. SallyJay says:

    Kitties and polka dots, ugh, she is just so TWEE.

  9. Erinn says:

    Am a 22 year old girl. Hate the shoes. The pants look like something one of my great aunts would love.

  10. Megan says:

    I dislike the whole outfit, but I have friends that I know would love the flats… And maybe the jeans too

  11. Elizabeth says:

    “the idea of pouring everything you are into another person when you become a parent”.

    Does anyone else find this comment terrifying? Geez, shouldn’t a child get to have their own life and dream and identity and not just be some narcissistic extension of an egotistical parent looking for validation?

    • Brown says:

      I’m definitely not a Swifty-the-bunny-boiler apologist, but I think you might be reading into this a little too much. I don’t think it’s weird for a parent to give their all to their child, which is how I read it. You want to give them everything you have so that they can become that person that they want to be, realize their dreams, etc. I don’t think she meant she wants to turn her kids into a clone of her (crazy) self.

      I’ll rag on Swifty for a lot of stuff, but I’ll give her a pass on this. It seems like she is just really, really excited about becoming a mom someday.

      Hopefully that day is far away, though.

      • Esmom says:

        I’m not an apologist either and I’m with you. I think she was just saying she doesn’t want to be consumed by work and possibly be away a lot when she has kids. It’s great to able to focus fully on parenting if you can.

        Although I do have issues with how easy she assumes it will be to have four kids if she wants them. I guess she’s used to having everything come easily, lol, so why should a family be any different?

        With the exception of the kitty shoes and pearls, I’m digging her outfit here. The jeans work for her.

      • Brown says:

        Yeah, to be fair, I don’t think most young (childless) 20somethings really take into consideration the fact that it might be difficult for them to get pregnant when the time comes. Does anyone really expect that? I mean, I am 23 and I know I want kids someday, and it honestly doesn’t really cross my mind “maybe I won’t be able to.” I kind of think that’s one of those things that you don’t think about and you take for granted until you’re experiencing it firsthand. Or maybe I’m just giving us too much credit, and we are all unbelievably shortsighted and naive. :) (Which is entirely possible.)

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Exactly. Very well said.

      • Erinn says:

        22… I know I want kids but I’m TERRIFIED I won’t be able to. I think I’m just extra neurotic when it comes to that kind of thing, but it is a legit fear of mine haha. I think some of it stems from immediate family with endometriosis and an increased risk of infertility with that.

        And if I can’t I guess I’ll work my butt off to be able to adopt some.

      • Brown says:

        @Erinn, I guess maybe I have just always taken for granted the fact that I will be able to when the time comes. Of course, that’s not to say I feel like I deserve it more than others or whatever, it’s just that I’ve always assumed that when I’m ready to start a family, I’ll be able to.

        I realize that there is a possibility that it won’t work out that way, but I just feel like most young people don’t really think too much into it until they experience it first hand. Or maybe that’s just me… I’m one of those “cross that bridge when I get to it” people, so I guess I shouldn’t generalize. :)

      • Amelia says:

        Erin, I’ll join you in being neurotic about having kids. For whatever reason, sometimes when I think ahead to the future I do get worried about all those ‘what if’s’.
        What if I don’t meet the right guy, what if I have egg issues, what if, what if, what if…
        There have also been a couple of conception issues within the family too, which is a scary thing to have prey on your mind.

      • Esmom says:

        “I don’t think most young (childless) 20somethings really take into consideration the fact that it might be difficult for them to get pregnant when the time comes.”

        You’re right, fair point. I know I didn’t think about any potential problems when I was your age. In fact I couldn’t even imagine having kids at all until I was 30, probably.

        Fast forward about 20 years and I’m the mom of two boys. Once I decided to have kids I thought I’d like a houseful but we ended up stopping at two when I realized my limitations! Any more than two (my older one has special needs) and I might have gone utterly bonkers.

    • Azurea says:

      Yes, I do find it terrifying! But, it’s not surprising she would say this…this is how she behaves in romantic relationships, too. She’s gonna be ever-so-disappointed with everything & everyone in her life, including her kids, when they don’t fulfill her saccharine expectations.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      @Elizabeth, that sentence gave me pause too. She probably didn’t mean it as creepy as it sounded. But when I was reading the post, that sentence stood out to me & raised one of my eyebrows.

  12. Allie May says:

    Nothing more sophisticated and classy than kitty face flats. My sister and I (forty year old women) are looking for them today on Ebay…

  13. Micki says:

    The jeans are ok but not styled like that.
    And I hope she’ll pour only her better part into her children.But while talking about them reading her interviews I thought:”What adorable little fans!” she’s going to make of them

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      That’s what I thought…they’re all going to have computers and be able to see what she says in interviews; weird. Like they can’t see what she says to them everyday…making it about her….unicorns and lollipops. I kind of like the shoes and also give the pants a pass as the polka dots are fine, but I can’t afford 500 dollars for a pair of shoes, good thing, because I don’t really want a pair anyway. Peace.

  14. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    I think her outfit is okay for her age. She’s young and the shoes and pants are quirky and fun. If you can’t wear quirky and fun stuff in your early twenties, when can you wear it?

    I’m not a big fan of her. The way she is going after Conor Kennedy is weird. I mean, he’s in highschool! And he just lost his mother and is likely kind of vulnerable right now. If the gender was reversed I think people would be more disturbed. If Conor’s mother was still alive, I doubt she’d be okay with it, and I think his father needs to pull his head out and pay attention to what’s happening and put some brakes on it.

    If I was his mother I would not be happy with how clingy and obsessive she is. She strikes me as very immature and spoiled.

  15. Dee Cee says:

    She’s too thin and flighty-brain wacky for baby making..

  16. Dee Cee says:

    Odd she doesn’t want him to grow up with any independent, mature advantages to become a capable adult.

  17. Tim Whatley says:

    Start with one kid, Swifty…then let’s see how many you have. (Says the mommy who wanted ‘several’ and decided to stop after the first one:))

  18. judyjudy says:

    Didn’t we already talk about this? The baby thing, I mean.

  19. Stormy says:

    Yes,if giving birth dosnt change her mind,wait till they start talking back.

  20. Blue says:

    I want her cardigan and purse.

  21. gg says:

    Wow that entire outfit clashes with itself. How come everybody says they want a houseful of children. Very few of the people that say that ever come even remotely close once they have 2.

    • Miffy says:

      Because reality pops that bubble really fast?
      I wanted four, I wanted a big family all close in age. Then I went into labour, then I wanted to be sterilised and to sue the yoga teacher who made me think I could do it naturally.
      Good luck, Swifty. She doesn’t seem equipped with birthin’ hips.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      gg – Agree about the outfit. TRAGIC as an ensemble. (That cardigan with THAT sweater-whatever under it. And the PEARLS! Kennedy wannabe.)

      But the kid thing? I always wanted 4, from the time I was about 5 years old.

      Well, #1 was unplanned and, due to circumstances and my unreasonable love for him, I decided one was enough. #2 was also unplanned, but due to my (now ex) husband being a jerk and our finances, I decided two was plenty. Later on down the road, I met & married Hubs, who had one from his previous marriage, and three was great. We wanted another one, and “ours” but finances didn’t allow and it didn’t happen.

      Until I found out I was pregnant almost four years ago.

      TA-DA! My four! :D Funny how things work out sometimes.

  22. Miffy says:

    The polka dots, the cat faces, that stupid little collar print on her tee… I want her to stop, drop and roll to save her from all the try-hard, Zooey Deschanel wannabe, cutesie geek crap. Pick ONE of those items and it’s quirky, all at once and… no. Just no.

  23. ladybert62 says:

    Maybe she and Conor can save some time and have them all at once – an abbreviated version of octomom!

    In my experience, a woman who says they want lots of kids have never been around lots of kids! ha ha – once they start popping out and that woman sees how much work they are, the reality sets in and the desire for lots of kids dwindles.

    But then again she has lots of money so can hire lots of nannies!

  24. SleepyJane says:

    Oh, just put her in a straight jacket already.

  25. Zoid says:

    Do we really need to hate on her for this? Granted, not everyone is, but some comments are kind of unbecessary for this situation. (Wanting to slap her, calling her crazy, assuming she doesn’t ‘understand’ what it’s like). No one can understand what it’s like to be a parent until they have their children. What’s wrong with her saying she wants some?

    Oh, and I’d wear those pants. Definitely not those shoes though. Ugh.

  26. the original bellaluna says:

    Says the woman-child who the most challenging, painful thing she’s endured are public break-ups and performing songs about them.

  27. stellalovejoydiver says:

    This is the first interview which makes me I like her. I´m 23, have no kids, but I´d love to have a big family(4 kids) some day, even though I´m not sure if I will find the right guy or be economically able to support them. Plus I´m saying this without having had one, so maybe after the first I think it´s to much work :) .
    She´s economically able to have a lot of kids, but she needs to mature a lot to be mother.
    Also I love her outfit, give me her figure and will wear the hell out of those polka dotted jeans and kitty shoes.
    What is wrong with me today?

  28. moptop says:

    I wanted four kids too. Until I went into labor. And if that doesn’t do it, realizing they are not cute little props you can dress up and put back in the box when you tire of them might. LOVE. The bag.

  29. dcypher1 says:

    I do like the polka dots but I hate everything else she is wearing. Its like shes in high school still oh yeah she thinks shes still 17. This girl needs to grow up before she has any babies. Most girls with her career like k. Perry dont even want to think about them. At least if swifty got married or knocked up it wont look as fake like k.p. .

  30. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree with you Elizabeth; the internet is great for comparing candids to celebs in ads,etc. Compare Swifty in that first pic to her appearance in the covergirl ads – three hours of styling and professional makeup artists and plain jane (in every way) is transformed. She really is living in an odd unreal world – not talking her up her soon to be released bubblegum crap; I’m wondering if it has got back to her that that “we will never ever get back together cross my heart and hope to slowly expire on a stack of soft warm plushy animal toys…etc.” is really awful and that was the first release from her new opus.

  31. EscapedConvent says:

    Again with the kitty cat shoes.

    Well, I’m glad you’ve told us the part of Joni is not confirmed, but…..I bet it will be. It’s such a stupid idea that it has to happen, in the context of showbiz.

    BTW, the Swifty playing Joni uproar a few days ago lifted my spirits, because of the comments here. It was good to see how much people really love Joni. And it caused me to meet a new Facebook friend too.

  32. LadyBird83 says:

    Says the woman who hasn’t had a relationship even last 9 months….

  33. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I think the outfit is cute and I don’t really see what’s the fuss with what she said. She wants to have a big family. Is that a crime? Could she change her mind? Yeah, of course. She’s a young girl. She usually annoys me but this post is kinda just nitpicking at nothing.

  34. lena horne says:

    I think she is very classy, when it comes to her clothing. However, I think she is very immature in love.

  35. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I have to ask a question – just watched TS on Jonathan Ross chat show (UK) and is Taylor really as stupid as she came across??!!

    & I mean really really thick and unintelligent??? How the heck is she so successful if she is as dumb as she appeared????

  36. Smarty says:

    Why do girls my age talk about how they want families and babies? Why don’t they talk about going to school and getting a degree or a master’s? Or travelling and learning new things to expand one’s horizons? I just don’t get it…
