I’m all for young love. But not when it makes cute little pop stars act like cougars on the prowl. Which is exactly what it’s doing to Taylor Swift. And it’s creeping me out.
22-year-old Taylor has been publicly romancing/obsessing over 18-year-old Conor Kennedy for months. Their relationship always seemed a bit strange, considering the fact that Conor still needs to be signed in and out of his dorm. Because he’s in high school. I was willing to give Taylor the benefit of the doubt, though, and not judge her for dating someone who’s still studying for his SATs. Then I read the most recent reports surrounding Taylor Swift’s plans for Conor, which include marriage and fatherhood, ASAP. And now I’m totally judging her.
As someone who seems to take break ups really hard (and then turn them into hit singles), I would expect Taylor Swift to behave a little more . . . tastefully? With a bit more tact, perhaps? Saying you want to be married before the end of the year is okay when you’ve been dating someone for years, at which point I would assume you’ve both successfully completed high school. But when your boyfriend still has a prom in his future? Not the best thing to put out there.
Frankly, I don’t know any 18-year-old boy that gets excited by the idea of being married with children before graduation. At this point, I’m a little shocked that the Kennedy kid is still sticking around. And if you want to keep it that way, Taylor, I suggest you cool it with the stalk-y house purchases, no more crashing weddings, and definitely don’t tell him you want to have his babies! If you really want a future with your student–boyfriend, you should take the whole obsessive thing down a notch. Or 10.
Or, maybe Taylor is displaying such over the top behavior because she just wants to be a little more country and a little less pop? I mean, what cold be more country than marrying your “high school sweetheart” and then having lots of his babies? But if that’s what you’re trying to do, Taylor, then my advice is: set your sights on someone who isn’t a Kennedy.
