Taylor Swift: 'Since 2010 I Have Dated Exactly Two People'!

Taylor Swift graces the cover of Vanity Fair‘s April 2013 issue.

Here is what the 23-year-old singer, who even authorized a friend to chat about her relationships on her behalf, had to share with the mag:

Taylor on her dating life: “If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people, [Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy].”

Taylor’s source on her Harry Styles relationship: “‘He wore her down,’ the source says of Styles, who allegedly ‘chased’ Swift for a year. ‘He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing—I want to be with you. I want to do this.” The relationship fell apart after he texted Swift to alert her of a picture on the Internet of him kissing a friend good-bye. They were ‘making out like with their hands all up in each other’s hair,’ says the source. After Swift ended the relationship, he pursued her for the better part of a year until she finally took him back. ‘But the whole time she says she feels like he’s looking at every girl,’ the source continues. And then when they were in London together he ‘disappears one night and after that it was like he just didn’t want to keep going.’”

Taylor’s source on her other boyfriends: “‘It was like a pendulum for her, swinging back and forth,’ the source says of Swift’s exes, with all of whom age has been a problem. Conor Kennedy, 17 at the time, was ‘just like a two-month thing,’ the source continues, and Swift ‘says he was awesome.’ The source says, ‘She dated Jake [Gyllenhaal] and John [Mayer] when she was really young and they were in their 30s, and she got really hurt. So it was like ‘That hurt—this won’t. But then it did.””

Taylor on the media’s portrayal of her: “For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated—a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way—that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”

    yeah right

  • kat

    Love this article. She finally sets things straight. Now the media won’t feel as entitled with their bs.

  • kat

    Yeah she is right. She would know more about her own life than strangers writing for gossip mags. @allemande:

  • Black

    I don’t mean any disrespect, and I’m sure no woman really *needs* a man, but Taylor really seems unable to keep a man. What the heck is the problem?!!

  • Mary

    Not buying really that Harry chased her and I’m no One Direction fan but the kid seemed to forget her easily.

  • Mary

    After they broke up I mean.

  • chelsea


    that’s because all of these “men” aren’t right for her! They’re all asshole players.

    she’s pretty

  • Incredibiltalent

    amazing voice!

  • anna

    She needs a shrink! I don’t care uf she dates 100 guys, but calling them out and talking about them constantly is pathetic! She needs a song writter about her called, “It’s you -not them”!

  • vroomvroom

    Here we go with ppl who will challenge what she has lived…do you Taylor

  • anna

    @kat: Excepttgat she’s out in public with multiple guys. She lives in a state of denial and blaming others.

  • Josie

    I guess for her “dating” is code for…

    Chopping wood
    Giving a grown up hug
    Playing with the skin flute
    bouncing the pogo stick
    Checking the oil
    Churn butter
    Dip your pen in ink

    So yea I do believe ms swift has gone on 2 “dates”

  • amanda

    ha haha hahaha hahahahhahahahahahha

  • LiamFan

    Oh, all you bitter rats need to leave her alone! You wish you could get what she’s gotten. TOADS!

  • LiamFan

    I will admit it’s really weird that she’s so open about her personal life. Also, why get a “friend” to do the talking? Own your own dirt Taylor. No shame, right?

  • Lacey

    It’s not how many guys she dates or who they are. It’s WHY she’s dating them. Everyone knows it’s for writing material, not for love. She wants to draw maximum attention to her breakup songs, which is the main thing she writes about. People see through her now, and getting “a friend” to whitewash it won’t change anything. Too bad, Taylor.

  • Amelia

    She makes a valid point about the medias scrutiny about HER and it being a little sexist and that’s it. If anything the media is focusing on her and no one else, SHE is the one that made this decision to write about her feelings in such a way that can often portray her as clingy, insane, and desperate with the combination of her personal life. Granted we may not have the whole story and both sides but with the way she has portrayed herself it is left up to the imagination. Honestly I dont think the media is thinking “this is women” they are commenting on Taylor Swift and her personal life. She needs to switch it up because her songs only fuel the media to continue writing about her love, this is all that she is known for people love gossip and she knows it that’s why she commercializes it. I think its funny she wrote I knew you were trouble before Harry and people think its about it him, and she added fuel to the fire. She knows what she is doing, she is using the medias scrutiny and gossip to fuel her sales, basically manipulating the public to continue her more than steady income…

  • Lusmila Castro

    @ Lacey you may think that she dates for the writing material but it’s obvious she dates because she wants to be in a relationship with a guy that will treat her right and not break her heart like many of the men in her life have. She does have a right to write her side of the story in a relationship and if any of the guys she’s dated like Harry styles or John Mayer actually wanted to tell their part of the story in the relationship then they have a write to do so after all that is why they are considered musicians or the others that aren’t musicians can actually speak publicly about their relationship with her if they wanted to.

  • Ssshhii_baby

    ok first off, what the hell is she doing dating 18 yr.old BOYS when you’re over 21? hello!!! obviously the maturity level is not there! she needs to grow and act like a lady in order to be treated like one!! Sorry but can’t sympathize with her on her choices in little boys

  • Lusmila Castro

    @anna: She has a right to write about her breakup because if you have ever been in a relationship that has ended horribly their are so many mixed emotions some people tend to eat their feeling, or cry themselves to sleep but she writes songs and puts all her emotions and her side of the story as many may think so pretty much of all songwriting is her shrink.

  • Ssshhii_baby

    Another thing honey…speak for yourself!! Don’t let “sources” speak for you if you want people to believe what you’re saying…be a woman about!

  • Ssshhii_baby

    @Lusmila Castro: she has the right to write whatever she wants and people have the right to judge since you laid it out there for public consumption!

  • Anne

    I dislike seeing the name of a talented actor as Jake Gyllenhaal included in this tasteless musical soap opera.

  • Laurin

    The reason Taylor can’t “keep a man” is because she doesn’t put out. She’s not easy and doesn’t have sex with someone she’s only been dating a few months, they get horny and leave because they’re scumbags.

  • Ssshhii_baby

    @Laurin: oh is that what it is? not be cuz she only dates them for a couple of months and already buying a house next to them? lol

  • Ssshhii_baby

    she is still a virgin just like how Brittany was with Justin:)

  • Ceara

    Lol @ Harry chasing her. Yeah right Taylor. She lives in her own fantasy land

  • Ceara

    Since 2010 she has dated 6 guys actually, not 2.

  • Phillip

    I would hardly call this an interview seeing as she only answered two questions, more like a brief chat and tbh I would take everything she says with a fat grain of salt

  • Domino

    WTF @ letting a friend explain her personal life? How more pathetic can she be? LMAO

  • sookie

    hahaha nice joke Taylor “Harry ‘chased’ Swift for a year”.. and Jared, where the thumbs up and down ?

  • Ella

    I would hardly call that picture of Harry and Emma Ostilly “making out” it’s a simple kiss with no hands in each other’s hair or anywhere near. And Taylor says she dated two people but her friend or whatever said she dated Jake and John as well….??? This interview is just so much bullshit…..

  • Laurin

    @Ssshhii_baby: You’re referring to Connor, and Taylor broke up with him so I don’t know what your point is.

  • Sandra

    Maybe the media focuses on her relationships because that’s all she talks and writes about. Its not sexism when that is all you are based on. Also I don’t think its the number of guys she dates as much as her victim attitude that is the issue. She is constantly bashing the guys she dates. Its not classy and now that she is older it is sort of embarrassing for her. Even the “source” about Harry is clearly Team Taylor and it seems like a desperate attempt to put all the blame on him. Also shocked she pulled the Jake and John card again. Time to take responsibility for yourself Taylor.

  • Sarah

    Yeah alright, Harry was wearing her down… she was the one who was smiling like she had won the lottery in every picture with him and called the papz.

    This is obviously her mangament trying to make her look sweet and innocent again after the relationship with Harry that backfired on her. He has said nothing but nice things about her since they split and all they want is for him to look bad.

  • anonymous

    didn’t she say that her songs were the only place she conveys her feelings? Guess song writing has transferred to major media outlets too?
    THIS is the reason she can’t keep a guy! If a guy breaks up with you, its something thats really personal. Put it in your songs, but don’t downright insult EVERY guy you break up with. He is still a human being, take the high road and give him some respect honey, then you’ll see the difference

  • jhb

    Not buying her story at all. She lives in la la land. he chased her!? yeah right! she chases all the countless guys she dates! Liar.

  • Taylor is immature & desperate

    MOVE ON taylor! You are so immature & desperate! You 2 broke up a few months ago now. Not a single word about you ever from Harry’s mouth! You are so desperate using him for publicity!

  • ian

    Bullshit.. what about Joe Jonas,Harry..etc,etc,etc…

    She likes boys its not a bad thing but I dont get it why know she goes like im almost virgin.. like seriously?

  • anna2


    Thank you. You said exactly what I was thinking. She makes such a BIG production of who she dates and a BIG production of the songs that come from the break up. I don’t think there is anything wrong with dating. I’m just tried and bored with her way of doing it. I find her very fake and when she was dating the Kennedy guy she made sure she dressed in the style of the 60′s. I found that very calculating and PR.


    The ‘source’ sounds exactly like Miss Swift herself. Curious.

  • Tru

    So apparently she refuses to disscuss her personal life but she authorises a ‘source’ to talk about her personal life to the magazine, of course, making her look like the poor victim.

    This just makes her look even worse, manipulative calculating and I’m someone who was neutral on her before.

  • lala

    cant say if shes is a virgin or not. u can appear soft and sweet yet still have crazy amounts of “intercourse” (not sure if sex is a rude word on jj) i mean i was completely unaware that one of my friend’s, smart, sweet, quiet and pretty similar to taylor swift, was a freak in the sheets with a lot of guys…a girls but thats another story lol

  • For Sure

    She’s an illuminati satanic ho who has been forced onto the public to teach young impressionable girls how to be loose, immoral and a liar.

  • Tori


    Dude, she’s in her early 20′s. She’s dating. I think that’s what we call normal. Difference is, her dating life is in the spotlight. Have your opinions about her dating life being in the spotlight all you want, but let’s at least admit to each other that her dating life is *normal.*
