Taylor Swift had a ‘glum’ evening with the Kennedys, then rushed to Harry Styles

Here are some new photos of Taylor Swift at last night’s Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner in NYC. It was held at The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, and many Kennedy family members were in attendance. Swifty had to attend because the Kennedys were giving her an award. So, was Conor Kennedy there? No. He was not. He was in school, for the love of God. It’s so funny to me that the Kennedy family – as a whole – has been dragged into Swifty’s teenage girl-drama. Apparently, Swifty looked “glum” at the awards and as soon as she could, she bolted from the ceremony. She went to her hotel, changed into a little black dress and hit up the One Direction concert after-party to see her new boyfriend Harry Styles. AMAZING.

She might well be never ever getting back together with Conor Kennedy but Taylor Swift wasn’t about to forget him (and his alluring family) on Tuesday night… as they presented her with an award! That’s right, the in no way awkward presentation took place at the RFK Centre’s annual gala in New York hosted by the infamous clan themselves.

Taylor was awarded the 2012 Ripple of Hope Award and despite the fact she popped herself into an appropriately glittering gold gown, her face spoke of unhealed wounds. Conor, 18, didn’t attend and although 22-year-old Taylor has moved on with One Direction’s Harry Styles, also 18, she looked glum to be at an event hosted by his family without him.

Conor’s father, 58-year-old Robert F. Kennedy Jr, and his actress girlfriend Cheryl Hines, 47 best known for Curb Your Enthusiasm, attended but spent the night cosying up to 26-year-old actress Dianna Agron. Taylor did pose with Conor’s Aunty Kerry and his Aunty Rory on stage, Rory was one of the clan to wax lyrical about Swift.

Rory, who helmed HBO film Ethel about her mother, said of the star during the youngsters summer romance: ‘I think she’s fantastic and I couldn’t be more thrilled. She’s a good friend of our family and we all adore her and love her. It’s great to have her around.’

Of course, giving well known philanthropist Taylor an award is a good way of making her less likely to write a song about Conor (as she is wont to do about her exes) but it seems that the beautiful blonde may have reconciliation on her mind.

According to Hollywood Life though, Taylor is still in contact with Conor and the Styles romance is just a mere flirtation. Which would be wise considering the young lad’s track record with the older ladies.

Whereas, Taylor’s bond with Conor seemed deeper… even with the rest of the family as she spent much time at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port. She even earned the approval of Kennedy matriarch, Ethel, who commented that she was quite smitten with the Grammy winner.

However, the fling is still flinging for now as Taylor left the ceremony as soon as her obligations were fulfilled to head over to the One Direction concert after-party… after changing into a LBD.

I wonder how that goes down in the Kennedy family. Does Rory go to Conor and tell him everything that Swifty said, every glum look and every awkward pause whenever certain subjects come up? What’s weird is that some members of the Kennedy family seem to be actively trying to get Swifty and Conor back together. And you know what? This Harry Styles thing isn’t going to last. Swifty’s relationships usually only last 3 to 4 months on average, and I have doubts as to whether Swifty and Harry will last beyond even New Year’s. I wonder if he dumps her over the phone too?

    The Daily Mail said her face “spoke of unhealed wounds.” I burst into laughter when I read that.

  2. Lucy says:

    Looking at his track record I don’t think he’ll take a song lying down so go for it Taylor I guarantee you Harry wont just go quiet like all your exes

  3. BooBooLaRue says:

    Sorry I am in a mood this morning. More coffee. I loathe her ash blonde perfect hair and that smarmy look on her face. I love her clothes for someone my age, but for a 22 year old? DULL AS DISHWATER. Go away. Ah, coffee…

  4. lucy2 says:

    Conor couldn’t go because it was passed his curfew.

  5. LeslieM says:

    Love her clothes. Beautiful dress.

  6. KellyinSeattle says:

    She probably brought the glum w. her…her sugary sweet, lollipop and ponies image she’s trying for is so psychotically scary. Her eyes look like they could kill :) I use that look sometimes as a teacher. She dresses like she’s a lot older, and I’m tired of her hair and bangs (mix it up a little), and her perfect, garish lipstick. SO THERE! I agree BooBoo; I’ve had my coffee and I’m still a bitch! And loving it.

  7. Gine says:

    Good lord, this girl goes through boyfriends like tissues. And lest anyone get on my case about slut-shaming, I don’t care a bit about whether or not she’s having sex with all these guys. It’s just creepy to me how quickly she falls in and out of “love.”

  8. Summer says:

    Don’t you think 18 is too young to be played with,Taylor?

  9. Madriani's Girl says:

    I’ve decided that Taylor Swift is really a government agent. She is shady. Comes across as this sweetness and light little blond girl who sings treacly ditties about sparkly kittens and boys. But in reality she stalks people and puts emotional choke holds on boys and writes songs about her exes that are full of Illuminati messages. She is secretly trying to take over the world.

  10. Bowers says:

    The boy is a sexer–had affairs w/two over 30 women. Taylor’s out of her league sexually here.

  11. rosemary says:

    idk why no one is saying this shes a hoe, if it was like kim k everyone eould call her a hoe for getting another boyfriend so soon JS

  12. akua says:

    Am a fan of Taylor swift..lol and whiles this girl get around i think there is something wrong with her..Daddy Issues….and i can’t wait for Harry song….Twitter and Tumblr fangirls are going nuts…..it like Twihard meltdown 2.0 epic

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I’m pretty sure having “daddy issues” means dating a guy way older, in hopes of him being your “superhero”/dad…and guys with mommy issues just want someone to take care of them. Both types are a mess in relationships…TS has some issues, but it’s certainly nothing to do with her dad lol…Maybe it has to do with being raised on a Christmas tree farm? Think about it, you are raised to bring innocent, sentimental excitement to children and sweet little families. Makes total sense I think.

    • pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      I am a fan too but these days her relationships just make me wanna wag my finger at her in person, she is so careless with her heart, she “falls in love” like a couple times a year,and while I can sympathise to a certain extent (I’m 18 myself), I think Taylor is getting too old to be making the same mistakes over and over and over and over. I know this relationship isn’t going to last, Harry is 18, he is not looking for “true love and a white picket fence” like her and she will end up getting her heart broken. again. and we will hear a song (or two) about it. again.

  13. RN says:

    I’m still curious about the house she recently bought next door to the Kennedy home. Does it just lie empty?

  14. TheOriginalKitten says:

    He looks soooo young-much younger than 18. I like her fox sweater. That’s all I got.

  15. Garvels says:

    Hmmm…why does Taylor get involved with guys who are rumored to be gay? Could these bearding arrangements be for PR purposes? This is getting old! Taylor should focus more on voice lessons and less on tacky PR moves.

  16. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I still think this is a coverup about the Ed Sheeran thing…I bet that is the true Londoner she is after.

  17. Maddie says:

    There is something off putting about her. She seems to think smirking in every picture is smexy.

    Her facial expressions never change she reminds me of those Alien kids in Children Of The Damn..

    She just jumps from guy to guy wrong message to send to her fans.

  18. Ann says:

    This girl puts herself in one PR situation after another. Casually walking hand in hand with one of the OD boys? Please. That is no casual stroll.

    She is all about the cameras and attention. I don’t dislike her, but she plays the game more than just about any other young celeb out there. And then turns around every time she wins an award with her “Who, little old ME?” act.

  19. Suzy says:

    I have it on good authority that she consistently calls the paps to photograph her with her various “men” and Harry’s just the latest victim.

    Conor Kennedy was at the 1D MSG concert last night & was reportedly at the after party w/ both Swifty & Harry.

    I think she’s using Harry to get back at Conor, but YMMV.

  20. j.eyre says:

    You really have to try to be glum at a Kennedy affair.

  21. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Her face spoke of “unhealed wounds.” Please, what is she – a returning vet. My opinions of this fake corporate gimmick and her treacly tear drop tedious music are well known. But can we be done with her – if these were authentic relationships, I’d give her a pass, but showmances for pr, fame, and cd sales NO, Behind that smug, smarmy rat face beats a mercenary heat marinated in the machine that is Pop culture.

  22. Stephanie says:

    She could do way better than this kid from One Direction. I dot see the appeal.

  23. Amy625 says:

    To me Taylor is pathetic. She falls in love with every guy she meets and she ignores red flags that scream stay away from this guy. Well lately stay away from this kid. I don’t see Taylor ever having a healthy relationship. It says a lot that all of her boyfriends dump her. You would think that Taylor would start to think maybe it’s me not them.
