Taylor Swift Denies Conor Kennedy Kidnap Reports
She tells Rolling Stone about her rumoured romance with the 18-year old...
But the singer wants everyone to know that if you're writing anything about them, you're wasting ink, because she's not reading it.
"I just got to take it day by day," she tells Rolling Stone about the press she receives, sharing that in the beginning every seemingly negative news item brought her anxiety that she would lose her fans because of it. But, these days, "I feel like my fans have my back and I have theirs."
And she's aware that her not-so-secretive crush on the entire Kennedy family seems a bit suspicious in the context of her relationship with the 18-year-old Kennedy member.
"You're telling me," the magazine's cover girl explains. "That's not what's happening," she adds when asked if the relationship has anything to do with her fandom for the political family.
Since Swift started hanging out with Kennedy, there have been several very interesting headlines about their relationship.
Those include a report that she sent a private jet to pick up her pal and bring him to Nashville to visit her, as well as another story which revolved around the singer and Conor crashing a Kennedy family wedding (a report her rep denied).
"How did I kidnap him?" she says in response to the private jet report. "You can't kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now," she laughed, adding, "It's an interesting way to spin something into a story. See, this is why I don't read stuff."
As for the wedding report, she insists she would have never showed up if she hadn't been invited. "I have no idea what happened there. I think that story was based on the biggest misunderstanding, 'cause I would never knowingly show up somewhere that I thought I wasn't invited to. And I would never want to upstage anybody."
Swift knows a thing or two about being upstaged. Back in 2009, when she hit the stage in Radio City to accept her Moonman for Best Female Video at the VMAs, Kanye West stepped in to say her competitor Beyoncé had "one of the best videos of all time."
She keeps a photo of that moment in her Nashville apartment. Years later she reflects on it like so, saying that it made her "realise nothing is gonna go exactly the way you plan it to. Just because you have a good plan, doesn't mean that's what's gonna happen."
Swift will be in Frankfurt, Germany, on 11th November to perform at the 2012 MTV EMA, where she is up for five awards.
