Taylor Swift Implies Selena Was Cheated On, Quickly Resumes Talking About Herself

Taylor Swift on Glamour UK magazine cover November 2013Why Taylor Swift, you saucy so-and-so. Haven’t you and I agreed that if you ever have a salacious piece of gossip to share to me, that you’ll do it in a long-form ballad so I can get all the details and also get something stuck in my head? That was the promise we made to each other, and I’ve never had cause to question it until now.

But here you go making a comment to Glamour UK that’s exactly that — a comment. There’s no haunting chorus, no cheeky lyrics, no bouncy melody. It seems like she’s making an implication that Justin Bieber cheated on Selena Gomez while they were together and then she took him back, but how am I supposed to absorb this information, Tay-tay? Write it into your new single or don’t bother telling me at all.

“I’ve seen my friends take someone back after they’ve cheated because they fit perfectly. But I don’t know, because I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone.”

But no matter how she releases the information, Taylor never manages to talk about anyone but herself for long. Even if it’s the dreaded Jelena, whose sloppy kisses backstage so famously prompted her to stick out her tongue at the Billboard Music Awards, there’s still nobody Taylor Swift likes to talk about quite as much as Taylor Swift.

These other two humans and their petty, non-Taylor dramas are only fun to talk about for a second, and then she’s back to, “Oh and by the way, I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone. I thought I did about eight times, but turns out that SOME PEOPLE don’t appreciate casual l-bombs being dropped over an early morning antiquing expedition three weeks into our fakelationship. I of course exclude Meredith from that category (get it??), because no man can ever approach her for gallantry and pureness of heart. But in general humans are lacking and I shall be single forever except probably only for a few more minutes. Well, back to my concert now, ta-ta!”

Classic Taylor.

      Stupidest. Article. Ever.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Thank you!

    • RFK64

      She’s giving an interview. She’s talking about herself. What a shock! Unheard of!
      And, where in the article does the name Justin Bieber appear? Nowhere!
      PS: try to get over the Harry business, don’t you think it’s time?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        The name Justin Bieber absolutely appears in my article! I can’t believe you missed it!

      • RFK64

        Funny! In your article it did, but not in the quote from Taylor Swift. I know you couldn’t care less, but didn’t they teach you about accuracy in whatever school you went to. But, I probably know the answer to that one, silly me!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You’re right! I did go to SillyMe University! And I graduated magna cum laude!

      • RFK64

        I’m so proud of you! Everybody should get an education. Well done!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh sorry, you accidentally forgot to say anything snarky here!

      Are you seriously criticising Taylor for talking about herself in a magazine interview? Are you under the impression that other celebrity interviews are about the celebrity in question talking about other people and not themselves? I don’t think the interviewer flew from London to LA to interview Taylor because she wanted to hear about unnamed friends. And it was ‘friends’ plural, not Selena Gomez. Taylor does have other friends. You should know, you’ve criticised her about them, too.

      Interesting that you chose this part of the article to quote and not the parts where Taylor talks about the problems of being a successful woman, how she’s not sure she wants children and there being room for her to make mistakes. I’m guessing it’s because you can’t acknowledge anything that might contradict the fantasy Taylor Swift this site creates; somebody you claim fakes an image of antiquated perfection and pretends to have nothing in her head but boys and kittens. Taylor Swift discusses sexism? Let’s just ignore that! Taylor Swift says she wears lipgloss? Let’s turn that into her being a immature airhead.

        God, I was going to say the exact same thing, but I got really really angry and said some less articulate stuff.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        We all make mistakes.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        DID TAYLOR SWIFT DISCUSS LIPGLOSS OMG WHERE I TOTALLY MISSED THAT I HAVE TO WRITE IT UP IMMEDIATELY BRB FOREVER.

      • Apricot Jam

        You already did; it was the Marie Claire ‘What’s On’ interview. Oh, but my mistake, it was lipstick and not lipgloss and I’m sure you’ll focus on that detail and make a flippant joke instead of addressing what I’m actually saying. You seem to handle everything by just making fun of the comments and make no attempt to actually think about what’s being said and whether it’s reasonable or not. However, in your articles you aren’t just making light-hearted fun of Ms. Swift, you have actually attacked her as a bad role model with what are at best, baseless assumptions and at worst, straight-up lies. Instead of actually engaging in discussion, you choose to mock anyone who disagrees with you. It looks like you don’t actually want to have or give a full and fair picture of Ms. Swift, you just want to sling insults at her and not be challenged on them at all.

    • Jenny

      Wow, you go to great lengths to diss Taylor Swift. When I read this article, I thought you guys would praise her for what she said about being a woman in the industry. Stupid me. I’ve read this article twice, and NOTHING she says indicates anything of the sort. And, oh my god, she talks about herself in her own interview! Not other celebrity does that ever! She talks about love and her perfect match! Because the interviewer didn’t ask her anyting at all, she just randomly started talking! Cue annoyance for no fucking reason.
      See, you’ve found a reason to hate her even in the most harmless article ever. This is your problem. Screw you.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You guys must be really good friends for you to defend her so vehemently.

    • Sumant

      how can someone who hates taylor swift so much dive deep into what she says and over-analyze it to SUCH an extent?! i mean, i get that you don’t want to write about all the good thing she says because you’re after promoting just a particular negative image of hers, but seriously, that comment was about relationships in general, and how you came to that conclusion is baffling.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I know. I’m baffled myself. I can’t begin to understand the connections my brain makes.

      • RFK64

        You’re not alone in not understanding! But, self-awareness is the first step to improvement. I see a glimmer of hope!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        False alarm — it was just my earrings.

      • Sumant

        :o you can afford earrings?!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        No, they’re rocks. :(

      • Sumant

        so how do they glimmer?! you’re no ordinary person, are you? *phoebe buffay tone*

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        They’re just really shiny rocks that I’ve been wearing on my ears, turns out.

    • M -

      These articles are fun. Mostly due to the comments.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        They’re gold mines.

    • Sam

      She is probably talking about herself because she is being interviewed. Whoever wrote this is really stupid.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        If you really can’t figure out who wrote it, mine isn’t the level of intellect you should be worrying about.
