Taylor Swift Is Over People Speculating About Her Love Life
Taylor Swift’s music gives us all an intimate window into her love life. Certainly, Swift has never hesitated to draw heavily from her personal life to create her music.
But in a recent interview with Glamour UK, Taylor expressed frustration with the media’s speculations about her dating life, and the tendency to classify her as a “serial dater”. She tells Glamour,
“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’.”
The question we have for Taylor is, what’s wrong with being “boy crazy” or a serial dater? These types of labels seem to only be invoked in the event that people are trying to tear women down, or shame them for their personal decisions.
Sure, Taylor’s relationships may have had a lot more publicity, but I’m sure a lot of people have had their fair share of relationships, flings, and hook ups.
Probably just as many if not more who’ve only had a few relationships. The difference is that Taylor is a celebrity, so her love life is quite literally broadcasted across a variety of media channels daily.
Ultimately, the number of boyfriends Taylor has really shouldn’t be our concern at all. At the end of the day, Taylor’s life choices should be her own perogative, not fodder for sensationalized headlines that police or shame her.
Plus, without all those relationships Taylor has had, we wouldn’t be able to hear all the valuable lessons she hands down to us in her love-life laden songs.
