Taylor Swift Dreams Of Bad Boys

Taylor Swift Dreams Of Bad Boys

Taylor Swift opens up to Parade about love and living in the public eye. Here are some highlights from the 22-year-old country singer’s interview:

On the bad boys she often seems drawn to: “There’s a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore. (Taylor’s growing list of high-profile ex-boyfriends include Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s 18-year-old son, Conor).

On being the first to admit that her romances tend to develop—and end—rather swiftly: “I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t. I don’t think it through, really, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’”

On the difficulty of living in the public eye: “I don’t know necessarily how much privacy I’m entitled to, but I know I don’t get much of it. At the same time, I asked for this. I could be playing in a coffee house. I’d be happy doing that, [but] not as happy, probably. Knowing that people are going to hear the music I make is the most amazing feeling. Knowing that there are dudes waiting outside my house with cameras, hiding in the bushes, is a less awesome feeling.”

I can honestly say I’m not attracted to bad boys. This girl has been in more “relationship” than the average 40 year old woman. I wonder how long it’ll take her to realize that she’s the problem. She’s one of the reasons why teen girls my age views on love and dating are so screwed up.

# 3

I don’t understand why people think there should be a LIMIT to how many people she dates??? She can have as many relationship as she wants and people should NOT CARE because, shockingly, it’s not your LIFE. Pretty sure if she were a guy no onw would care. Double standards are gross.

# 4

the only one in that group i’d call a bad boy is john mayer

# 5

ok, the interview sucks, she sucks, we all know it. but the cover is just terrible, her waist and shoulders look so disproportionately!

# 6

You would think after John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal she would want a good guy since her songs about them were about how much they hurt her but nope.

# 7

She’s such a cliché.

# 8

She is so over exposed and boring.

# 9

She has no maturity, sentimentally

They’re not relationships or boyfriends if they only last one month or less. She just labels them that in her fantasy world that she lives in in her head.
They are flings, at best.

i get love and stuff is what she likes to make music about and as an artist i dont think theres anything wrong with that being her thing… but cmon girl you’re going a little over board with how much emphasis you put on it

@Kim: not true. Adam Levine or Leo Dicaprio aren’t perceived well for their dating choices either. Brbu know hat at least there’s last at least one year. Taylor’s dont even last one month.

Ppl, call her what she is: a sl^t.

Hey Sailor; People don’t call her “Princess Taylor” for nothing. And I mean that in a good way. The rest of you are just a bunch of chocolate milk toast morons who are jealous of white people who are better than you.

JJjr please she still act like 12…

“I’m attracted to Bad Boys”? Which one on that list is considered a BAD BOY? Is this 4 real?! Wow. I thought she was the sweet & innocent type — not so much. I told you she sleeps around.

@TheDudeAbides: Okay, now that your worthlessness has spoken your worthless opinion, scram, Taylor Sl&t.

@Dave Franco:
maybe to her, anyone who left her is “bad boy”
you knw cuz to her they are the ones who are wrong
idk man, I want one of her ex to write a song bout her called “you were the problem”

@lol: honestly, I think all of them are quite ashamed that they dated her so they don’t recall her or her songs in the interviews. The only one was John Mayer but he’s a sassy man. I feel sorry for that Kennedy kid, she’ll wipe him out in her next record.

Wow! What a venomous bunch of cretins jumped on this board. You’d think Swift was the the vilest person on the earth… for the apparently unforgivable crime of not having found her one true love at 22. Yet she continues to be absolutely loved by millions and millions of fans, and respected by the top professionals and the greatest legends in the music industry.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Uh, as a fellow 22 year-old female, I can say that Taylor is the problem, not the boys she dates. She’s only loved by fans who are still in high school and fool themselves into thinking that their one month relationship is true love.

Her millions of fans are 99% kids and teens. Same as Justin Bieber. That’s not exactly something to be proud of. Adele is a young woman too but the difference is that people of all ages love and respect her. I used to like her 2 years back but already I’m sick of her. She’s too childish for me. Lets see how much longer she can last if she doesn’t grow musically.

what Sister Mary Eunice doing on the Cover magazine? get back to Asylum Sister..

Every time I read something about her, I ask myself, “Why do people think she’s a role model?” She hasn’t had one relationship that lasted at least a year, she falls in love way too fast, she’s not very intelligent (although she is business smart, can’t deny that) and now she’s admitting that she likes bad boys. I think people are just calling her that because she’s not a Lindsay Lohan type who parties more than she works and treats people like crap. But the things I just listed about her are reasons why no one should look up to her.
