“Wow, I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing. [Now,] I think that no matter what you find in terms of happiness and compatibility, there’s always going to be a struggle attached to it. I used to believe that you find the one and that’s it — nothing’s difficult after that. But then again, I know nothing now. I know legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don’t have them.”
In the December/January issue of Lucky, Taylor Swift talks about how her views of love have evolved — and made her kind of jaded. I mean, I can’t blame her too much for feeling worn down by the world. It’s not always the most cheerful place. I’m glad she acknowledges that nothing in life is 100 percent easy, including relationships, but does love really have to be that heavily associated with constant struggle? Relationships take work, but with the right person, difficulty shouldn’t be the defining factor, right? Then again, just like Taylor, I’m too new to the world to make that kind of judgment call either way. [Us Weekly; Lucky] [Image via AKM-GSI]
Taylor Swift may have the number one album in the country right now, but she still loves a (relative) bargain — half of her outfit above, specifically her scarf and blanket cape, are from Topshop! The cape is sold out, because Taylor has that effect on things, but they have a number of similar styles still available. Told you blankets masquerading as coats was a hot trend for winter. Get her full look, after the jump! Keep reading »
This 2003 middle school class project features an eighth-grade version of Taylor Swift pitching “Paco’s Paradise Smoothies” to her classmates. Luckily for the internet, it was been brought to Reddit’s attention by a friend of one of the kids in the videos who noticed it’s been sitting unlisted on YouTube, a lone unearthed gem, since 2008. The video has that gloriously awkward quality of all middle school class projects in which the filmmakers think their work is hilarious and giggle to each other during the screening while the rest of the class fails to get the joke. Stars, they’re just like us! Taylor utters her one line to Hollywood perfection, natch. [Gawker; Reddit]
Apparently Taylor Swift needs to up her game as New York City’s Global Welcome Ambassador, because Amanda Seyfried was not impressed. The “Mean Girls” actress, who attended her first-ever basketball game last night, sat courtside with her boyfriend Justin Long, Taylor Swift, Kate Upton, Justin Verlander and Howard Stern, amongst others, to watch the New York Knicks lose to the Orlando Magic, 3-6.
Although Taylor was chatting it up with the couple the whole night and the trio were even featured on the big screen at one point, Amanda decided it wasn’t for her and decided to throw in the towel for good (which perhaps the Knicks should consider, given their record). Basketball is apparently not her thing. Or maybe it was Taylor…we’ll never know. But we do have an amazing clip to show for it. Keep reading »
