Taylor Swift was heartbroken when people only asked her about her boyfriends


Yay, the daily pap sessions have continued for Taylor Swift! I was wondering when we would start seeing Swifty’s autumn/winter styles. She’s still stuck in autumn, even though it felt like the cold, dead hand of winter here on the East Coast this weekend. These photos of Swifty are from Friday. I like the poncho thing and I’m okay with boots. The skinny jeans are blah to me, but she has the legs for them. We should be seeing more of Swifty in NYC for the next few months and then next year, she starts her tour to support 1989. The tickets are already selling like hot cakes. You see, Swifty just has her music these days. She has her music, her money, her girlfriends and her vast real estate portfolio. But that it!! No boyfriend. And for some reason, people are still asking her about boyfriends.

Nothing broke her heart more than this. Taylor Swift opened up to Us Weekly about picking up the pieces after her past relationships, saying all she wanted was for people to focus on her music rather than her love life.

“It broke my heart!” the 1989 singer, 24, tells Us. “I was selling out stadiums and it was all people talked about.” So, after her last relationship (which ended with Harry Styles in early 2013), Swift put boys on the back burner and instead, returned to the recording studio where she diligently worked on her fifth studio album.

After selling 1.28 million copies of 1989 in its first week, Swift has finally reached a point where the world is buzzing about her talent. “Now people talk less about the things that don’t matter,” she tells Us. It’s working: 1989 remains at number one on the Billboard 200 for the second week and is projected to remain at the top spot for a third.

Swift also goes through some of her tracks on the album with Us, including “All You Had to Do Was Stay,” “How You Get the Girl,” and “Wildest Dreams.” The singer-songwriter says “Stay” was inspired not by a real-life romance, but rather a dream.

“I was trying to talk to someone important,” she recalls of the reverie. “And that’s all that would come out of my mouth. I woke up so weirded out!”

She also “totally” agrees with Us that “How You Get the Girl” serves as an instruction manual for men. “It’s written for a guy who has broken up with his girlfriend, then wants her back after six months,” she reveals. “But it’s not going to be as simple as sending a text like, ‘Sup? Miss you.'” She adds, “That won’t work. You need to do all the things I say.”

“It was all people talked about!” Because it was all SHE talked about! It was all she sang about! And now all she talks about is how she doesn’t have a boyfriend. I read some pro-Swifty piece about which songs on this new album are about Harry Styles, and most Swiftaholics believe that there are at least two or three that Harry specifically. It’s not the whole album, but it’s enough to make you wonder. Like, I wonder if she’s going to need to have at least two boyfriends and bad breakups before she writes the next album. Oh, and you know who is her tour’s opening act? Vance Joy. He’s a cute guy and he would date her and then break her heart properly. I look forward to it.

    Adorable outfit, but the extreme side part is odd. In some pics it looks like a comb over.

    • Tristan says:

      She has the ability to transform any outfit into a sleeping tablet, zzzzzzzzzz, much the same way that Kim Kartrashian transforms everything she wears into slutty trash. She is boring personified, and about the only interesting thing about her is her psycho stalking her ex bfs, so hardly surprising people only ask her about that. It is utterly depressing to think her boring bubblegum pop is top of the charts.

    • Katenotkatie says:

      I don’t get why she holds her purse like that. Her hand looks like a claw. Not classy, just odd.

    • Steph says:

      Yikes. Lots of haters here. Leave the poor girl alone. Were any of you this successful at 24?

  2. L'etranger says:

    I don’t love the poncho (those colors wouldn’t look good on me at all) but lose the furry balls at the ends and I would steal that scarf in a heartbeat. It looks so cozy!!

  3. QQ says:

    This poor fragile sparkly heart… Will everyone and everything stop breaking it???

    I mean seriously I wanna be on her side cause of the clothes and money and the cat but then she goes and talks… Like who created these conversations and blind riddles and pap walks??

  4. Louise177 says:

    I like the poncho, hate the boots. I don’t understand why people like those big heels. They don’t look nice. The more interviews that Taylor does, the more I dislike her. I used to be neutral. It’s annoying that she keeps blaming other people and the media for her issues. People constantly talk about her boyfriends because that’s all she talks about. Whenever she releases an album she puts her relationships front and center instead of making it a side note. Now everything is sexist eventhough it’s the image she put out. I think she wants to change but she still seems juvenile to me.

  5. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    Oh my God she is such a lying hypocrite. Really, nothing has changed here; same bull, different rodeo. Her life is a masterwork in proving how stupid the public is- that a celebrity or politician can simply *say* they’ve changed while continuing to do and say the exact same things they always have, and people believe them. There’s a sucker born every minute.
    I hate the outfit too.

    • Koala says:

      *hands you a mimosa for “same bull, different rodeo”*
      Beautiful double entendre. And agree 1000% with everything you said. She has always treated her love life like a product and has made millions of dollars crying about it to music. But now that she’s got several million tucked away she can complain about it. So much side eye from me.

    I have to share this. It’s too good not to. One of my FB friends is a gay man, and there is an 11-year-old girl in his life. I’m stripping out the actual names here, but this is the conversation between them he posted on FB last night.

    11: I think all the guys Taylor Swift has dated are gay. Do you think that means Taylor Swift is gay?
    FBF: How do you know what guys he’s dated?
    11: She’s not a he! Who are you talking about?
    FBF: Isn’t Taylor Swift the werewolf guy in the Twilight movies?
    11: O.M.G. HOW OLD ARE YOU? That’s Taylor Lautner! … … …hmmm, but you know, I think you might be right…
    FBF: Oh! Is Taylor Swift the tall girl who wears all the eyeliner?
    11: Yeah, and she’s always breaking up with guys and writing songs about it, but I think they’re all gay. And she’s always going on Ellen, so I think she’s gay too.
    FBF: Honey, I don’t quite know where to begin to answer that.
    11: Oh, you’re always so PC. You watch, she’s gay!

    • whatsmyname? says:

      “Yeah, and she’s always breaking up with guys and writing songs about it, but I think they’re all gay. And she’s always going on Ellen, so I think she’s gay too.”

      OMG NOOOO AHHAHAH this whole conversation is amazing. Thanks for sharing!

    • Anniefannie says:

      I want to hang w/this eleven year old….

    • Milena says:

      That is TOO good.

    • Ava says:

      That is the saddest post I’ve read, what is that??? so lame, maybe instead of getting this worked about some celebratory you don’t know get a hobby .

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        Um, did you even bother to read it? It’s a FB convo initiated by an eleven year old. Learn to get some capital letters going on and some punctuation. So lame.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      brilliant analysis!

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Taylor, so sorry you’re heartbroken, but why don’t you stop worrying about what people are talking about and just stick to your music and knitting? Or get a real problem.

  8. Shelley says:

    She is such a talent, esp when one considers that most top charting pop stars can’t write music or steal writing credits *cough*…Beyonce.

  9. whipmyhair says:

    Excuse me Kaiser, but I think you’ll find she also has Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson- her Scottish Folds.

    Not just music, money, girlfriends and, properties.

    Cats. Never forget the cats.

  10. Cici says:

    This press tour in every interview she talks about boys and how she doesn’t want to date, how she’s changed etc. And she still writes songs about her exes while dropping enough clues to let people know which ones she’s probably singing about.

    If you don’t want to talk about boys, instruct your publicist to forbid those questions and start writing songs about something else.

  11. Erinn says:

    I’m mostly here to say that I’m listening to Vance Joy’s album as I type. I am in love with the guy. Taylor actually did a decent acoustic cover of Riptide – I actually enjoyed it. His music is so chill, and so pretty. And he seems like a really nice guy.

    Can we also note that Dip[lo]sh-t is continuing his twitter bitching? Really. This is a grown-ass 36 year old man. Why does he feel the need to do this? Not only that, but his baby mama gave birth to his second child this weekend. But he still had time to harass TSwift on twitter. The body shaming is getting really old.

    And the babies name is Lazer. LAZER.

    • whatsmyname? says:

      If I tell you that the name Lazer is the name of his group does that make it better? HAHA

      • Erinn says:

        Ahahaha…. so is the baby Minor Lazer, if the group is Major Lazer? Does he eventually get upgraded to Colonel Lazer?

    • Ange says:

      I saw Vance live at a festival earlier this year, it was a pretty good set. He’s definitely right up Taylor’s alley musically.

  12. whatsmyname? says:

    Her actions doesn’t match her words not even a little bit.

    “He’s a cute guy and he would date her and then break her heart properly. I look forward to it.” Hahahha Kaiser. Imagine all the refrences to stadiums and backstage hook-ups, go on Tay fall in love PLEASE.

  13. Kcarp says:

    It would be awesome if we found out she had some undercover banging going on.

    That might propel her to adulthood. It seems like she thinks she has to have a bf to kiss anyone and they have to date for 2weeks before she lets him under the bra.

  14. Sara says:

    ahhh she is getting on my nerves more and more. this isnt the case of hugely talented artist being unfairly treated. she isnt a recluse who suddenly has her love life in the papers even after never saying a word about it.

    Taylor, sweetheart, your music and your dating life cant be seperated.

  15. Cate says:

    All this nonsense and obsessive drama about boys and how she’s over it and all about herself and girl power and blah blah my cats and needlepoint and baking and girlfriends. Then this album with the Harry Styles songs and the cheeky Fatal Attraction video. I’m so confused, can she make up her mind already? Do we still think Tay Tay has her V-card? I often wonder she comes across so prude and then I remember she dated the ultra sleazy John Mayer and I can’t see him putting up with that.

  16. Franny Days says:

    Regardless of boys and her love life she is so amazing to her fans, it is really unlike anything I have ever seen. Check out her tumblr! There are better things to talk about than her love life, but I guess headlines about boys do get more clicks.

  17. Jayna says:

    Well, it’s not exactly like she was writing songs on a variety of subjects like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Carly Simon, Joanie Mitchell about far more than their latest broken relationship with some famous young male star of the moment. It sounds like almost all of her songs revolved around that and also always giving hints to which FAMOUS guy it was. What else are they supposed to ask her about? LOL

  18. Useyourhead says:

    I don’t know why I’m erupting with the hate today, but truth is, I have a couple of songs from Taylor on my iTunes. I also sometimes hum (without any sort of intention) “Shake it off”, and recently kept pressing repeat for “Blank space” on YouTube, though the urge to download it has been tempered. With that said…hope I am not being too hypocritical.

    Is she REALLY like this? Does she really have the mentality of a twelve year old girl? I understand that she might have to exaggerate to market to her demographic and promote her music, but she has to be somewhat this way mentally right? I know some people like this in person and being with them is really exhausting. I sometimes listen to her music because of the melodies, but if the lyrics were audible to me all of the time, I’d go nuts. There is just a huge disconnect: I’m slightly younger than her, preparing for graduate school after I finish my two senior theses, I work teaching first year university-level classes, constantly worried that my research is not good enough (should spend less time here I guess)…the bottom line is, I have neither interest nor time dating guys or wondering about exes. I get that this is her JOB and writing about work or academia or other non-“omg that boy is so cute yet he broke my hard yet i have to find another guy yet now i’m stalking him on instagram” songs would lead to a life of poverty and ridicule.

    I know, I know. I don’t have to listen to her and by taking the time to comment, I’m actually giving her my attention. But, why would you complain then? The very reason you sold out stadiums is because YOU WRITE ABOUT GUYS you previously dated. When you are with someone, everyone has to focus on the both of you and being in love is the best thing ever. When you are single, everyone has to focus on you and is the best thing ever. When you want us to focus on your new love, you shove it in our face. Then when you feel like it, you talk about privacy and people acting biased against you by speculating too much.

    Again, not to sound elitist, I’m not saying that if you have a degree or if you have other things going on in life, having a boyfriend or a dozen exes is not important, but does she and/or her fans really operate on the sole mentality that the world is as big and wide as your previous and future boyfriend?

  19. Veronica says:

    “Out of the Woods” is DEFINITELY a Harry Styles song (she even refers to December!), but I don’t know about the rest. Most of the songs on the album are pretty fluffy to me or a bit of a “f*ck you” to the previous media interpretation of her.

    I’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt and say that fielding so many questions about her love life might have been the wake up call to change her career narrative. It’s great when it’s selling records, but what woman wants to be a lovesick girl forever?
