Taylor Swift Now Friends With Kanye West, Denies Being 'Boy Crazy'
And of course, if you have Swift's full attention, there's a few things you want to know, namely, about her love life. It's something Swift does talk about, though she doesn't get specific on whether her and rumored boyfriend Calvin Harris are an item. Instead she says she's not too interested in dating right now since it's become sort of complicated.
"Yeah, I do feel jaded about relationships, to be honest," she says. "I think the media has sent me a really unfair message over the past couple of years, which is that I'm not allowed to date for excitement, or fun, or new experiences or learning lessons. I'm only allowed to date if it's for a lasting, multiple-year relationship. Otherwise I'm a, quote, 'serial dater'. Or, quote, 'boy crazy.'"
Swift say this idea of her being completely boy crazy is all wrong and that they've just created a narrative for every time she's seen hanging out with a guy.
"It's 'Taylor spotted talking to this guy, she's chasing him,'" she explained. "They create a beginning to the story that didn't happen most of the time, so then they have to create an ending. So they always go to the same fabricated ending that every other tabloid has used in my story, which is, 'She got too clingy,' or 'Taylor has too many emotions, she scared him away.' Which has honestly never been the reason for any of my break-ups. You know what has been the reason? The media. You take something very fragile, like trying to get to know someone, and it feels like walking out into the middle of a gladiator arena with someone you've just met. And all of a sudden the public and the media are allowed to say thumbs up or thumbs down. So I just don't try it any more."
Swift also talked about Kanye West, explaining that their niceties were not just for the cameras. "We actually, I guess, could be called friends now!" Taylor told the magazine with a laugh. "I honestly think I needed to continue to prove myself in my career and I think it finally got to a place where he realized he respected what I do as a musician."
