Taylor Swift’s ‘Date’ With Tim Tebow Is Just Another PR Attempt To Keep Her Image Pure

Sources spotted Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift on a dinner date together at a restaurant in L.A’s Century City mall and I couldn’t be happier for the possible new couple. I can’t think of two celebrities who deserve each other more. Just think of all the promise rings they can buy for each other and the purity balls they can attend. Why the two of them could just spend a whole date starring into each other’s eye and wondering if everything they’ve heard about boys and girls having different thingys under their pants is true.

Or this could be another massive PR set-up to keep Taylor Swift looking sweet and innocent. Not so coincidentally timed with the release of her family friendly film, The Lorax. What’s more family friendly than a respected football player who’s a proud virgin? Time and time again, Taylor Swift attempts to sell herself as an innocent, sex-free girl who’s just like all the preteen girls out there.

Just two weeks ago she confessed to Ellen on her show that she spent Valentine’s Day dateless. She says:

“I actually had a pathetic single girls party. It was cool. That’s actually what it was called. (We) just ate whatever we wanted and danced. We made these little profile cards about why we’re single.”

Young girls all over the country could hear that and swoon. After all, they too were dateless and sad on Valentine’s Day. Except, Taylor Swift isn’t 13, she’s 22. Is this really what we want our thirteen year olds to aspire to? “Pathetic single girls parties” in their twenties.

I’m not saying having a Valentine’s Day date is neceseary to be a happy 22-year-old, but Taylor Swift chose to use the word “pathetic.” She didn’t choose to say,  ”my friends and I were like screw guys, we don’t need men to be happy and we drank and we danced and we had an awesome night.” That’s the woman we would want our preteens to admire, isn’t it? The woman who doesn’t need a man to be happy, who can spend a romantic holiday with her friends with no regrets. Rather than a lonely girl who feels  pathetic for being alone.

This brings us back to her latest calculated PR move, going on a date to a mall with Tim Tebow. To a mall? Can’t get more All-American than that! Taylor Swift who is worth 80 million dollars and Tim Tebow who is worth 3 million dollars decided with their 83 million dollar combined networth to eat at a mall restaurant. While one might say that it’s showing that fame hasn’t gone to their heads, I’m much more skeptical. Why go to a mall unless you’re looking to be spotted. Last I heard celebrities prefer privacy when they’re on real dates at the beginning of relationships.

Why date notorious religious figure Tim Tebow unless you’re looking to keep your image pure? For someone who mothers constantly say is a wonderful role model for their young daughter, it sure sucks that she’s dating someone who doesn’t believe in  a woman’s right to choose. Guess she’s trading in that “super-positive pro-girl” message for one that makes her look even more angelic.

And this is my ongoing problem with Taylor Swift, her entire image is completely manipulated for the public. Nothing she says or does occurs to her naturally. She’s so caught up in promoting herself as an innocent girl that she’s leading her life completely for the public’s approval. But at some point, shes’s going to be caught. At some point all her carefully constructed lies will be revealed and she’ll be left standing with nothing but the truth. I only hope it’s something worth singing about.

      You sound very bitter.

      • Paul

        Nailed it, Lee. Someone so bitter, they can’t conceive of sincerely wholesome, honest people, which both of these young superstars appear to be. So many people – women, ironically – seem to resent Swift her success, because she’s “pretending” not to be the whore which she obviously MUST be. What’s up with that, Jenni?

    • Cee

      Although I like her music (who doesn’t? its bubblegummy and girly). It is true, she is a hypocrite.

      Im tired of her acting like she is so innocent. She always puts on that wounded bird face and attitude when someone leaves her. I bet you have friends that fall in love with everyone that pays them a compliment and roll your eyes when theyre surprised they got dumped for being waaaay too head over heels.

      Not only that but its quite known that she slept with John Mayer. She wrote a song about it. She’s not that innocent and instead of trying so hard to be this white dress wearing to everything (doesnt anyone else think thats creepy? wait, girl, just wait) and trying to please this crowd that believes she’s a delicate princess, she should say she is a young woman that wants all kinds of dudes even the non squeaky ones like Mayer.

      This author has a history of attacking Taylor Swift. She has some real big problem with wholesome people who just happen to be famous and rich. Taylor has never said that she’s a virgin or thinks of herself as a princess that’s all you and your weird phycosis. Im an adult and under no illusion that Taylor has probably had sex. And why shouldn’t she have? I also strongly believe that she doesn’t “sleep around” at all as thats just not her personality and she hasn’t had a boyfriend in almost 2 years. I do not want my daughter to look up to a 22 year old that drinks and partys. Taylor is a great role moddel and if she wants to spend valentines day baking and laughing with friends then all the power to her. You also forget to mention that right after Taylor says “pathetic girl party” she says but I think being single is awsome we have talked about this. Your articles are based on hate and baseless claims. The fact that you wish harm and saddness to Taylor at the end of this article really shows what a piece of trash you are, if I was your editor I would fire you on the spot.

    • Kathy

      Wow. Just wow. You obviously did not watch her whole Ellen interview. She was entirely joking about the “pathetic single girls’ party”. She said, and I quote, “I’m not saying being single is actually pathetic, I think it’s great”.

      You have no substantial evidence aside from purely biased opinion that Taylor Swift is a liar and just pretending to be sweet and innocent. Why is it so hard to accept the fact that this girl honestly doesn’t drink, smoke, curse, or have casual sex like most people her age?

      What a cynical, completely bitter and subjective thing to say. You call yourself a writer?

    • Tanya Wagner

      Wow…jealous much? Anyone who feels that strongly with no evidence or reasoning behind it needs to question their motives. C’mon now…why you gotta be so mean? ;)

      • Melinda

        I think she’s just pissy because Taylor is making millions while she slaves away at a computer, writing shitty articles for equally shitty pay.

    • Asteri

      Please know all the facts before you condemn someone to “getting exposed” in the future. Taylor is a good role model for young kids, but she’s no SO innocent that she would be motivated to be seen with someone just for the purpose of keeping her image pure. She has said she’s been to 21-and-over concerts, seen R-rated movies, listens to the likes of Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent. She has also dated John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal…neither of them are exactly “Mr. Mother’s Favorite”.

      She is not a good role model because of who she dates or associates with. She is a good role model because the way she conducts herself is classy. Taylor never dresses provocatively or uses foul language, yet still manages to appeal to many different people, including adults even older than herself.

      • Amy

        “Taylor Swift IS a badass! She, like, went to a Nikki Minaj concert!!”

        Lol. Otherwise, I liked your comment.

    • Yep, there it is

      Another installment of Taylor’s illustrious career as a beard for closeted celebrities.

    • Disgusted

      lol what a pathetic attempt at trolling to get attention. This article is, I would say disgusting, but it just wouldn’t do it justice. Pitiful is more fitting. I’m embarrassed to admit I clicked on this article or ever laid eyes on such a disgraceful website. Last time I will make either of those mistakes.

    • Cee

      I find it so funny that in both articles this writer has written everyone got huffy and called the writer a hater and that Taylor is a role model for all of America’s daughters apparently.
      How has that turned out for all the bubble gum virgin teens of the past? Britney..Miley? It is hard to be in the pressure of being the good girl. While there is no doubt that Taylor, and other women can be “good girls,” it is a a bit disturbing that the world wants to shelter this girl and keep her at an adolescent state and when one critiques, you are a hater and “jealous much” It almost reminds me of children’s of Selena Gomez and when she *gasp* stayed in a hotel with bf Justin Bieber and the world died at the possibility that they might be doing other things than watching the Disney Channel.
      Taylor is 22 and no one is implying that she whores herself out or “pulls a Miley or Britney” but that she matures. It is doing her no good to stay in this victim place where everyone that dated her wronged her because she was the ugly girl bullied in high school, because Kanye interrupted her two years ago, because Joe Jonas broke up with her over a phone (which most teenage boys do). Her audience cannot baby her all her life and feed her victim persona. She needs an audience that will encourage her to grow up and accept that she plays roles in her break ups and in the reasons why she is “pathetic” and single.

        er..strike out “of the children’s”

      Whooa, what’s with all the bitterness? And no, I’m not talking about the article. I’m talking about the comments! The author has the right to an opinion! Don’t take it so personally, people. She doesn’t have to like Taylor Swift. And you don’t have to be a total hypocrite and call her bitter and “a piece of trash” and mock her career. Geez. The article doesn’t say, “Taylor Swift is a bad person and I hate her”, it comments on the fact that her image may be manipulated, as are ALL celebrities to some extent. I think Taylor is lovely, but obviously her reps are trying to make sure her image stays tween appropriate, and it’s an interesting debate as to when role models should make the leap to being recognized as an adult without alienating their young fans. It’s not cause for complete strangers to get nasty and bitter and attack the character of a writer who is just doing her job, which is to express opinions on entertainment!! Chill, people. Some of your comments made me nauseous, as they were SO hypocritical.

    • lol

      man, y’all crazy swift fans.
      i don’t pay much attention to these hollywood stuff, but even i know that she go through her boyfriends like tissue paper. this girl is obviously boy-crazy, but who knows whether tebow is as innocent as he looks. i am not hating on anyone, but if you girls can’t handle the truth, u need to get out of the kitchen. lol

      Does an editor read this stuff before it gets published?

      Wow Jenni, another fail.

      We get it. You think Taylor Swift is “fake”, too “virginal”, and she’s “hypocritical.” Here’s a tip: focus on Gaga or Madonna, Rihanna, Miley e.t.c., you should have a lot more winning articles from the aforementioned artist.

    • Abby

      You’d think writers these days have better things to do than sit behind a computer and hate on people who are richer and more successful than them. I practically laughed at how sour and pathetic this is.

    • Carol

      I think she said “pathetic … party” because that’s how they called it. In fact, in the interview she said that … is not that she thinks being single is pathetic. You should actually see the interview before posting about it.
