Taylor Swift really did buy a house close to the Kennedy compound: creepy?

What started out as a minor, bizarre little summer love story has become increasingly creepy and bothersome… to me. For the most part, I don’t take celebrity gossip all that seriously – meaning, I don’t personalize it, I don’t try to interject myself into the proverbial shoes of any given celebrity. But this Taylor Swift-Conor Kennedy thing is really bugging me, and I can’t help but feel a tidal wave of emotion for and about 18-year-old Conor Kennedy. Conor just lost his mom. He’s still dealing with all of the “shoulda, woulda, coulda” of his parents’ awful split, which was then compounded by his mom’s suicide. Now he’s the administrator to his mother’s estate too, going through her papers, dealing with all of the loose ends she left behind. And he’s still in high school – one source claimed he was going into his junior year of prep school, some sources say he’s headed into his senior year, but the common denominator is that he’s STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL.

And then Swifty comes into the picture, angling to get into the Kennedy clan in any way possible. In what world are Taylor Swift’s actions not seen as predatory and simply wrong? Oh, I’m sorry – we’re supposed to believe that Swifty is “helping” and “supporting” Conor through this difficult time. You know what would be a big help? Not forcing a relationship on an 18-year-old who is having a really horrible year! But Swifty is willfully clueless about that kind of thing. That’s why she just bought a property adjacent to the Kennedy compound. Of course.

After getting a taste of the Kennedy lifestyle this summer, Taylor Swift apparently feels she could get used to it. The Nashville-based singer, 22, who is dating Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son Conor, 18, has bought a house in Hyannis Port, Mass., across the street from Conor’s grandmother Ethel, according to several reports.

A realtor in Hyannis, Mass., confirmed the purchase to PEOPLE, saying Swift bought the property last week.

“It’s in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys,” the realtor says. “It’s a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years.”

The realtor said the property – said to be a 13-room home overlooking Nantucket Sound with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms – was originally listed for $14 million but was “way overpriced.” Local reports say Swift scooped it up for $4.9 million.

Swift, who is said to be “swept off her feet” by Conor, has many admirers in the Kennedy clan, with Ethel’s daughter Rory calling her “a great friend of all of ours.”

This whole thing deserves a siren call of “DANGER DANGER”. Best case scenario: this relationship lasts until… what? He graduates from high school? So, maybe another year. A year in which Swifty balances being an international musical superstar with her boyfriend who is still in high school. And then what after that? What happens when Conor meets some nice teenage girl from a nice political family? What if Swifty’s drama gets to be too much really, really quickly? I guess she can just put the property back on the market. It just feels so… ugh. I don’t even have the words for how icky I feel about all of this.

    Yes! Run Conner, before she writes an awful song about you!

  2. brin says:

    Very creepy and stalker behavior…hope she doesn’t turn into Leann before our eyes.

  3. Amelia says:

    Fatal Attraction movie night, anyone?

  4. loma says:

    She’s so sketchy. This whole situation is sketchy.

    • Jacquelantern says:

      Seriously! She just comes off as so pathetic, chasing boys around and writing songs about getting dumped constantly.

    • T.C. says:

      Taylor Swift is sketchy. Pretty sure this Is all part of her plan to get material for her next album. She needs a high profile relationship and a high profile breakup leading to platinum level CD sales. I’m on to this beetch’s act. Connor is just road kill, a means to a more wealthy end.

    • stinky says:

      he looks like that little kid Jonas brother she was with way-back-when!

  5. gee says:


  6. Dibba says:

    Kennedy’s in general obsessed with celebrities. Especially Bobby’s side. I read swiftly originally went after Patrick, but Maria wisely stopped that

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      And weeks ago we established that was bs…people need to get these stories straight before they start bashing

      • Dibba says:

        “we” did? Must have missed that. Apparently I need to dedicate more time to my gossip research. Thanks for correcting me so nicely.

    • Raven says:

      She never went after Maria’s son. It was a media error. They make lots of them. And she was invited to vacation at the compound by Ethel. Maybe she liked it there and wanted to have a place there. If nothing else, it is a good investment.

  7. lola says:

    yo, taylor, get off the kid’s jock already.

    Every picture of Conor freaks me out, cause he looks like he’s in a daze and he looks about 15. Poor kid needs friendship right now, not a stage 5 clinger who wants to try on Jackie O’s pearls.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously. I imagine her looking at a Kennedy family tree and trying to figure out which guy(s) she could target. She seems like the last thing he needs.

      The creepiest thing — other than her buying the house — is that he’s still in high school. Is she going to wait for him to come home with milk and cookies? Or will she pick him up after soccer practice?

      Like you said, he needs friends. He should be trying to enjoy his last year of high school and instead he’ll be saddled with this.

      • Kelly says:

        I completely agree with both of you. And on top of him being in HS, I think it’s boarding school (I don’t want to Google it because then I’ll feel weird for trying to find out where a teenager goes to HS), so are we going to hear stories next of Taylor being kicked off campus after being found sneaking into his room (yuck!)?

        I guess his family’s just trying to be supportive, but someone close has to tell him this is a bad idea. Maria, where are you?

      • rumbleseat says:

        No Kelly, that’s why she purchased the house! She’ll just check him out with the gatekeeper, and return him around curfew time. Not a bad plan at all.

  8. daisydoodle says:

    I think her maturity is about on par with a teenager, she hasn’t had time to evolve into a young adult. But her handlers should tell her to “cool it” with the high schooler….didn’t she do this once before?

    • Mia 4S says:

      Exactly! I look at this and all I see is yet another very young star who wasn’t taught appropriate boundaries and never matured past 17. Not only did he lose his mother, he lost her a long time ago to addiction. He will need a lot of time to process this and I doubt very much Taylor is prepared to deal with that. So sad.

      • AnnieGrey says:

        What about when Taylor is is closer to 30 and keeps doing this? That excuse won’t fly then.

  9. Green_Eyes says:

    Well she writes & sings about high school breakups & romance…. Guess she’s living her dream. This WOMAN is stuck on high school & at 22 it’s not even vaguely cute…it’s downright creepy! (no not sexist if I had an 18 yr old daughter in High School she would NOT be seeing a 22 yr old man). This age just a few years make such a difference in relationships. Sadly at 18 & in high school, think Kennedy may be the mature one in that relationship.

    Creepy…even Creepier when they split & she writes another High school heart break song.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yes, she’s stunted at 14 or 15 years old. And totally agree about him being the more mature of the two.

      Really sad. If he was my kid, I’d be beating her off of him with a sharp stick. (But then, I’m not dead, and I’m also not a Kennedy.)

  10. Bad Irene says:

    Does she not have any friends/family/random passerby to tell her to cool it. This poor kid just lost he mom in awful circumstances and swifty is inserting herself into his life with all the finesse of a guitar playing rodeo bull in a chinashop. Something about her is way off.

    • Talie says:

      “Does she not have any friends”

      Uh, that’s what I’m wondering…and I mean real friends, not celebs that do photo-ops.

  11. A says:

    stalker…this is beyond embarrassing

  12. dorothy says:

    They’ve only known each other a short while, and the kids only 18. Is she just stupid? He breaks it off with her and he’s coming home to a boiled rabbit.

  13. marie says:

    it’s extremely creepy..

  14. Little Darling says:

    It’s just a little bizarre, but sometimes one person really can help when things are horrific. And since she’s all rainbows and unicorns…ahem…princes and balconies, I am sure all they are doing is eating ice cream.

    As sketchy as she is, she doesn’t seem like a *bad* person. I’m sure she’s really nice to him and is being a friend. I don’t get it, but maybe for some reason this is working for them. I just hope he’s happy, I know nothing but sadness circles him.

    • Sandy says:

      I kind of agree with you – maybe Taylor is helping him get over his unhappiness.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah, she is a light-hearted person. Just hope she doesnt manipulate that into something intensely romantic right now. Need to take it slow slow slow

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yeah ITA. I mean, it is undoubtedly creepy that she bought a place right nearby but I take issue with the Kaiser’s comment that she’s “forcing” this kid to be in a relationship. Sometimes when life is pure hell, it’s nice to have someone to “escape” to for support. She might be predatory, but I don’t think she’s forcing him to do sh*t. She’s not a witch casting magical spells-Conor is a young dude who is probably easily infatuated by a pretty, famous young singer.

      • hoya_chick says:

        How is buying a house across the street taking it slow though?

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        This is the result of immature love, combined with millions to throw at an estate just for kicks…I assume Connor agreed to her doing that, “Yeah baby, this is what I want too. Then we can see how this develops between us…before you go back to your real life of recording and touring…” not gonna end well if they dont slow this love pony down real quick.

      • Esmom says:

        Buying a house across the street from his family is the exact opposite of taking it slow. And it is, to a degree, forcing things. because when they break up he will still be forced to see her, or at least her house and a clean break will be nearly impossible.

      • AnnieGrey says:

        I can just imagine.
        Taylor:Let me buy a place nearby. That way we can be aloooone.
        Conor: -giggle- Okayyyy. -does the “I’m losing my virginity dance”-.
        Taylor: A Kennedy loves me! Yay!

  15. Dana M says:

    This is messed up. He is a child. This says a lot about her character IMO.

  16. L says:

    I’m sorry buying a house next to your boyfriend’s family at any age is creepy. I’d feel the same way if he was 30. Add in that he’s a high school senior, and ick.

    I’m sure she knows she has a safety net in that if anything goes wrong people (esp her fans) will write it off as ‘what do you expect from that awful Kennedy family’, ‘those kennedy men always date celebrities’ and ‘poor taylor’ I’m sure she’s not a bad person, but I’m also sure she’s not a idiot either.

  17. Ainsley says:

    So Taylor is stalking the Kennedy family now? This is just weird. I heard her new song last night and it sounds like she’s regressing. She sounds like she’s about 12 on it. That Conor boy should understand that Taylor saw a History Channel special on JFK once and she just wants the name, not him.

  18. Erinn says:

    Dear God, you could not pay me enough to move in close to my boyfriends family. It’s a weird situation… I’m not sure how I’d feel about my teenaged son going to stay at the house his girlfriend OWNED. Sketchy situation, really.

    And the poor boy looks so dazed… he must feel a mess right now. Clearly he’s never listened to her music or he’d be running for the hills.

  19. TexTRex says:

    Can’t be a Kennedy? Then bang one, move in across the street from him and his family and take him to Prom.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Maybe get pregnant by him; write a few really crappy songs about it that never get released because the Kennedys get an injunction, with a restraining order on the side…

      You see where this is going.

      • olcranky says:

        I was thinking the same thing. She comes across with the emotional maturity of a 14-year old who wants to feel like a princess (and to be a Kennedy) so I won’t be surprised if she gets pregnant and then pressures him to marry her quickly.

  20. Talie says:

    She did similar stuff when she was with all the other ones, especially Jake Gyllenhaal. Older guys and even older women won’t usually put up with that because they want to also have their own lives separate from their relationships. This is why she went so young this time…It’s really a shame she didn’t meet Liam Hemsworth before Miley because all she wants is a guy to put a ring on it drastically too soon.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Oooo I think Taylor and Liam would be hot together…Miley is taking a ride on the crazy train lately, so who knows how much longer that relationship will really last.

  21. Blue says:

    Ewww. This is all types of wrong. I don’t buy this “Taylor isn’t that mature” or “maybe she doesn’t realize” I fully believe this WOMAN knows what she is doing and that this whole doe eyed naïveté, sunshine, and unicorns act is BS. I’m sure her handlers have told her she looks crazy but she’s not listening. She has her own agenda and will follow through no matter what.

  22. lucy2 says:

    That’s just too much. I could see getting a place if she’s there a lot, but right across the street?

    Why is the family making an 18 year old handle all of his mother’s estate? Are there no older relatives? Some lawyers? My friend’s son had to do all that when her ex passed away and it was overwhelming for him, and he’s a few years older.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      “Why is the family making an 18 year old handle all of his mother’s estate? Are there no older relatives? Some lawyers?”

      That’s exactly what I was wondering!
      Crazy right? I guess everyone’s so focused on Taylor stealing this kid’s innocence that they forgot to be outraged about the fact that he apparently has to do an adult’s job all on his own.

  23. shannon says:

    Bought a house right across the street?? That is weird to me, but she is young, so maybe still naive enough to think that is a good idea. I’m 36, and live right across the street from my 43-year-old boyfriend (that’s how we met). And the convenience is nice, but even at our age, and we’re both pretty mature and know about boundaries and whatnot, it’s a bummer sometimes. Like, I don’t want to go outside for my morning jog until after I know he’s left for work … we both know when the other is there or not, it’s just … odd. She’ll probably regret this, or he will, or both.

    • Erinn says:

      I’m Taylor’s age, and have enough sense to know that would be a horrible idea. It’d be bad enough living next to JUST the boyfriend… but he still lives at home, and has a crap ton of relatives. I could not handle having my boyfriends family living that close to me.

  24. diana says:

    I love her and her songs. Atleast she’s wholesome to listen to.
    I wish her all the best.

  25. hoya_chick says:

    How is going into his junior year and turned 18 in July? That doesnt make any sense to me. Did he repeat a grade? Or start school late? Cuz that would mean he will 19 when he graduates if he is in fact going to be a junior. That’s not normal, 19 is college freshman/sophomore age. Confused.

    I think it’s creepy too. Don’t worry you aren’t the only one. I saw some photos of her walking around in a bathing suit and a bikini top and shorts with his dad over the weekend. It seems strange that none of them think it’s strange what she is doing. I mean is Conor now spending the nights in her mansion across the street? That’s weird. What happens when she goes on tour or goes back to LA and he is in HS? Therapists always say you shouldn’t do anything dramatic after suffering a loss (especially one so dramatic and public) like getting into a relationship. If he becomes attached to her and then she leaves to go do whatever it is she does (I suppose you can call it singing but I don’t, girlfriend is all one note as far as I’m concerned) what will happen then? A breakdown? Sigh. I wish someone would step in. Who buys a house after a month of being with someone so young? With her track record (ppl would be calling her a sl-t if she wasnt so cutesy at the rate she gets with and breaks up with men) they probably won’t last a year. What then? He’s already fragile and having such a public relationship followed by what will be a public breakup complete with melodramatic songs will be disastrous!

    • Cazzee says:

      Don’t know if this is the case, but many competitive athletic families will ‘redshirt’ their male children and hold them back from enrolling in kindergarten until they are six or sometimes even seven years old. Thay way, the redshirted kid will be the biggest and most developed child on the team. The family I knew that did this was a big Irish family that was very, very competitive about sports.

      Could be that the Kennedys held Conor back a year or two in order to make him stronger competitor athletically.

  26. Katie Too says:

    If she got the house that much less than list price, it might just be a great investment opportunity. ::tries to put less creepy spin on it::

  27. RTR_Girl says:

    It was bad enough when I thought he was about to start college, but he is still in HS??? Ewwwwww. Good grief, when I was just an 18 year old freshman in college, you still couldn’t have paid me to date a high school kid. Geez, Taylor, grow up and quit dating gay guys and children! And don’t fall for the Kennedy fantasy bull$h!t. Even the Kennedy girls are cheaters (Kerry and the polo guy, anyone?) Plus, your odds of meeting a tragic end are exponentially higher with that bunch.

    • olcranky says:

      If this were a 22-year old male celebrity (even a Jonas brother) and an 18-year female HS student people would think he was a predator. I don’t know why the entertainment media doesn’t think this is kinda creepy

      • Same reason why it doesn’t seem to shock the media that 17 year old Aaron Johnson got with nearly 40 year old Sam Taylor-Wood on a film set. But in that case, a lot of people were virtually high fiving Sam Taylor-Wood.

  28. NYC_girl says:

    I wouldn’t go near any of the Kennedy men. There is too much death and destruction associated with that family, and I feel sorry for that young kid and how he lost his mother. Although I totally would have gotten with John Jr. I’m still upset about his death.

  29. Diva says:

    She seems stuck on her teenage years. I was surprised to find out she was 22 and not 16 or 17. When I was 22 I couldn’t imagine dating someone in HS. What’s the appeal?

  30. Diva says:

    She seems stuck on her teenage years. I was surprised to find out she was 22 and not 16 or 17.

  31. mt says:

    I am 22 and the thought of dating a guy in high school makes me sick. how do u go from grown ass men to a child? Wtf..

  32. the original bellaluna says:

    She’s really upping her creep factor lately. Is she trying to change her image? Or does she have another crapfest of an album dropping soon?

    • NYC_girl says:


    • rumbleseat says:

      She has another crapfest of an album dropping soon. Haven’t you heard the golly-gosh-darn wonderful news? Go listen to the first song. It’s a horrible dance number, and not even an earworm like her other crap. You would think the promo poster for the single was an SNL parody if you didn’t know better.

      This is what the pickup of her in the media for the past two months or so has all been leading up to.

  33. kristinlistin says:

    I am not a looker myself, but i’ve always thought that she could sometimes look like the biggest creeper. Now it’s public knowledge that she is one.

  34. NYC_girl says:

    My mother said two things about her: “She has the most deep-set eyes I’ve ever seen on a human,” and “All of her songs sound the same.” I laughed out loud with the last gem.

  35. Turtle Dove says:

    She’s too old for him. He’s in high school. This is too creepy and weird for words.

    God, is she now going to start only going after guys that age as she gets older? Once the kid reaches 25, she trades him in?

  36. Bobo says:

    Have I missed an article on why Taylor Swift is so obsessed with the Kennedys? Can some one tell me why?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I think perhaps she’s romanticised the Kennedys, glossing over all the tragedy and death that follows them like a plague. Or she’s being willfully ignorant about it. One of those two.

      I imagine she also fancies herself quite the princess, and what better way to be a REAL princess than to insert oneself into an American “royal” family?

  37. the original bellaluna says:

    Since this is TS thread, and she voices a character in The Lorax, may I ask a question?

    How hypocritical is it that The Lorax is about appreciating and nurturing our environment (with a Wall-E-like message about consumerism) when the song running during the credits is auto-tuned to within an inch of its life?

    (I’m sorry. I’ll shut up about it now.)

  38. garvels says:

    This girl is a freak.

  39. juju says:

    So pretty and talented but seems to fall in love with every man or boy that looks her way !! Stop acting desprite, its not a good look !!

  40. ABQ GIRL says:

    Not one mention of this being totally unacceptable if we were talking about a 22 yr old guy being cutesy with a Kennedy HS girl. This is ridiculous on so many levels. For one, Taylor needs to grow the fuck up. STOP CHASING GIRL!! Who buys a house across the street from someone you just met? The Kennedy’s dont care, they are very well aware this is a May-Dec romance, its Taylor that doesnt get it. When this relationship is over and she decides to write a song about it; we will see the wrath of the backlash on her. All we have seen is guys “preying on poor Taylor”. Just wait and see, this will bite her in the ass and no “golly, geez” face (you know that face of surprise she always makes) will be enough to excuse it.

  41. dorothy says:

    Noticed he was in Nashville with her this week. Hasn’t school started back for him yet?

  42. Kate says:

    Not sure what is in play here. I think her people are very aware that her shelf life is limited and they are milking this young, innocent ingenue schtick as long as they can, but this move is stalkerish. Plus her latest song — We’re Never Getting Back Together or some such thing (I have two pre-teen girls, so yes, I heard it last night), TERRIBLE. Grow the hell up girl. She’s been pretty good at putting out music that the parents of her tween/teen fans can tolerate (which has helped her success), but this one….shark jumping time.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I dont know..I mean this single sounds similar to any current (Kesha, Carly Rae Jepson, Demi Lovato) song..annoying, but catchy and current. She’s just keeping with the trend lol

      • Kate says:

        @EmmaStoneWannabe: Maybe I’m just getting old. Sigh. When I heard that song last night I had the same feeling I had when I realized (a number of years ago) that I really could no longer justify watching Real World on MTV. It was just too embarrassing.

      • rumbleseat says:

        Oh good. So there’s at least one other person on earth who listened to that song and though that Swizzle was taking her inspiration from CR Jepson’s Call Me Maybe. Good to know I wasn’t the only one.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Kate, I felt the same way about watching clips of The Challenges/Gauntlet/whatever they called it.

      Also, I would love the recipe for both your starter AND the bread. Pretty please. :D

  43. Emmy says:

    I’m only nineteen, but I’m going into my third year of university and I would never EVER consider dating someone still in highschool. My 18 year old cousin and I are very close; he is a senior in highschool, and while I flirt and am friendly with his friends, I wouldn’t ever date any of them! We are living in two entirely different worlds. And that’s the difference between college and high school. Swift is WORKING. She’s living in the ‘real world’. It’s actually sort of disgusting if you think about it. She’s obviously taking advantage and while he might be enjoying it right now, it could seriously screw him up in the long run.

  44. Reader says:

    My mother died last year when I was 21 and let me tell you, I wouldn’t have dated myself at the time. I was a mess, a is anyone in this situation. It seems impossible to make a new relationship work so soon after this kind of thing happens, you’re just not thinking straight, you may fall for someone too quickly just because you need affection and some sort of hope. Age gap aside (she doesn’t seem like the most mature 22 year old anyway), for Taylor to be doing this to that poor guy just because she wants to be part of a famous American family is completely unresponsible and selfish.

    • BeccaZ says:

      I was 25 when my dad died, and I was a mess for a long time. Unfortunately, I did make the mistake of latching onto a guy during this time and what a problem that turned out to be. When I started to come back to myself, I was so ashamed that I used this guy…but he was also someone who had a crush on me for a long time and I felt like he really took advantage of me.

      This kid’s mom hung herself on the property. I just can’t imagine his mental state. Messing with douchebag Mayer is one thing, but I can’t imagine things will go well for the unicorn princess once she gets on the bad side of the Kennedys.

  45. alison8701 says:

    I’ve always been kind of ambivalent toward Taylor. I like her music fine and she seemed harmless. But on the other hand, she acts so immature and is stuck in love-sick 14 year old mode, yet seems to get around quite a bit. The Jake Gyllenhaal thing grossed me out, as well as John Mayer, but I realized that most little girls would jump at a chance to date those two… but I am the same age as her and now it all just seems so strange. like she just dates to date, or for material for her new album.

    Something’s got to give. Either she needs to abandon this aw-shucks I’m just a wittle wove sick girl schtick or stop being so weird and predatory about men. Her public persona and her actual actions are kind of incongruous.

  46. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    NYC girl all her songs sound the same because her team knows her talent such as it is is very limited,and they are just writing drivel for a built-in market, ainsley is the new song titled something like I’m never ever going to love you again – if it is it’s already being lampooned and mocked on other sites. THis is what will end her career, even her tone deaf fans will tire of hearing the same song with the same lyrics sung just 3 different ways over and over again.

  47. Atticus says:

    I think it’s weird a 22 year old international superstar finds enough in common with an 18 year old high school senior to sustain a relationship, but whatever. For how worldly she is (that is, how much she’s traveled the world), she does seem a bit prepubescent. And I’m a huge Taylor fan, so I don’t mean that to be terribly deragatory, I just think maybe her emotional maturity is such that she can relate to this kid.

    Maybe the house was priced so ridiculously out of the market so that most people couldn’t just buy a property that close to the Kennedy compound. Enough Kennedy family members have said positive things about Taylor Swift that maybe they were fine with her buying this property – at least it was her and not some loony stranger. Maybe in time the plan would be for her to sell it back to the family.

    Who knows. I just don’t peg Taylor Swift to be that conniving.

  48. Mouse says:

    Sounds creepy and awkward, I feel badly for Connor even if he is happy with her. He’s vulnerable and any romantic relationship would probably be a bad idea for him right now. What personality disorder(s) does this girl have?? Because of all the drama and failed relationships she’s been through and she’s only 22, it can’t just be the guys she’s dated. Something ain’t right here and I think it’s between her ears.

  49. A Fan says:

    This seems classicly smothering, desperate, clingy, and super aggressive – qualities many men/boys find quite unattractive, I’m sure. And she wonders why all her ‘boyfriends’ (real or imagined) run away?

  50. Anne de Vries says:

    Wow, she’s subtle, isn’t she? So next month they’ll be engaged?

  51. REally!!! says:

    she needs to go and hide out somewhere for about a year. Come back with a more mature head on her shoulders. I used to love her. But I’ve seen a few live performances and have been left utterly disappointed. Now she’s just being creepy. Why is that we as fans value looks over talent. I’d love to listen to someone who looks like a dog but can belt it out to a live audience. Adele anyone (not a dog, but the only one I could think of that has talent).

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah the only time I saw her “live” was at the Grammys when she performed with Stevie Nicks. I could not believe how terrible she was. I kept thinking that Stevie must have been furious to have been paired with her.

      • Minty says:

        Yeah, I saw that atrocious Grammy performance, too. I remember thinking, why is this lightweight so popular when she can’t even carry a tune? It felt like an insult to Stevie.

  52. Camilla says:

    Taylor has had an obsession for the Kennedy clan for a while. She apparently had a shrine of pictures of Jackie O in her room and had something going on with Maria and Arnold’s son Patrick/ Lets just hope she won’t be writing any nasty songs if the relationship breaks up because the poor kid has been through enough. The Kennedys seem to have a life of countless tragedy. He doesn’t need her immature drama on top of family drama.

  53. Hakura says:

    My first thought, seeing that title picture… was “Lord, the girl has furry arms…

    I don’t think this whole situation is going to end well. (Then I’m certain it’ll turn up in one of her songs.) After what he’s been through, the last thing he needs is to be pulled into her world of celebrity & paparazzi haunting his every move. That in itself is a form of smothering, let alone anything Taylor is doing herself.

    The buying a house across the street thing, ugh. Maybe she didn’t fully mature & that effects her decision making, but come on. I knew better than that at 14.

    • rumbleseat says:

      The chick who likes to sit around and make art projects with glitter and snow globes out of Mason jars didn’t fully mature? NOOO!! Say it ain’t so!

      • Hakura says:

        I was unaware of … that. That kinda sounds more like someone who’s more than a little behind the rest of the ‘class’ in more ways than ‘simple immaturity/acting teenage in regards to relationships’

        I mean, I make jewelry with all natural (undyed, ect.) feathers, but not with jars of glitter, sitting in my house by the window, waiting for that kid I’m stalking to appear so I can go smother him with my attention.

  54. Sakota says:

    Someone should remind Taylor of the things that have happened to starlets/singers in the past if they get too possessive. She should take an ouija board and summon Marilyn Monroe to get some sound advice.

  55. Kim says:

    She never dated Patrick paparazzi took pic of her with Patrick, Connor and some other teens.They linked her with the Kennedy member they recognized.Isn’t Taylor a purity ring virgin like Jonas brothers ?

  56. lehcar says:

    Ugh she is definitely all kinds of cray. so clingy.

  57. Jinko says:

    She may appear all lollipops and rainbows, but this girl is only 22, and has 16 relationship notches on her belt. I repeat, sixteen! I wouldn’t want my son hooking up with this serial dater who looks like an alien, and who can’t keep a guy. Houston, I think we have a problem.

    Run Conor! Run like the wind!

  58. erika says:


    what if Taylor was a ‘BOY’ and Connor was a ‘GIRL’?

    Would more people pay attention to how creepy, uhmm, ‘predatory’ this is?

    She’s wierd. Like…’wierd.’

  59. Kiyoshigirl says:

    I’m not so sure these two are dating. If they are and it goes south she will sell that manse just as quick as she bought it. Hasn’t she summered in Hyannis since she was a kid?

  60. molly says:

    I still dont buy this. This sounds like something that the press made up. Its too convenient that there was a place for sale right next to Connors place, so of course the press would want her to buy it! If she is indeed living there, I think renting for the summer (which her family rents a place on the East Coast every summer) sounds way more accurate.

  61. Jill says:

    When she wants the penis she wants the penis. Doesnt matter if it’s old or young. Then she can write a song about it after they break up with her bec she’s nuts. Beauty obviously isn’t everything bec most of these dudes are running for the hills after they hit it.

  62. sauvage says:

    She obviously can afford to be a very young 22.

  63. serena says:

    I get the feeling she’s just stalking Ethel.

  64. BaZaam says:

    This girl has some serious issues. She apparently has the emotional maturity of a twelve year old, she’s demonstrated that she is clingy, needy, and DESPERATE in the past, and I would be pretty worried if I knew this young man. I see a stalker in his future, but not for long. Yep, she’ll write a song about him too… what a loser.

  65. Sachi says:

    This is on par with her admission that she drives by her exes’ houses in her spare time so she can “check” on them.

    I mean, it’s fine to be tempted to find out if your ex has gotten fat and ugly since you broke up (esp. if the breakup was bad) and then cackle like a loon when your musings turn out to be true, but Taylor herself implied that she does it constantly and she does it to a lot of her exes.

    She sounds like she has issues with getting over relationships and gets too clingy too fast then turns passive-aggressive by blasting her exes through her songs.

    She’s no Adele or Alanis Morisette who both have written scathing songs about their exes but managed to come across as reflective, self-aware, and mature.

    Taylor’s lyrics always come across like they’ve been written by a 15-year old girl who thinks she’s hot sh*t and that breakups are never her fault and she’s not to blame, but it must be the guy’s problem.

    Connor better be careful, or we might get this type of lyrics from Taylor when they breakup and Taylor gets the material she needs for her new album:

    So he calls me up and he’s like
    “I still love you” and I’m like, I’m just …
    This is exhausting, you know like
    We’re never getting back together
    Like ever

  66. renee says:

    This is weird. Didn’t she start when he was 17? and any doubt about her getting(implants) just look at the new People..there is a pic of her and the family and she is walking with a bikini top on and looks like implants. Not padding but implants..
