Taylor Swift Says She Resents Her Reputation as a Serial Dater

“There has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful.”

She has seen the T-shirts, heard the jokes about constantly having a boyfriend, constantly being in a relationship.

And frankly, Taylor Swift says she resents that reputation, further telling Glamour UK that it was made up to knock her down a little.

“The way it works . . . is if you reach a point in your career where things are going very well, public perception needs a ‘Yeah, but,’” she says.

“Like, ‘Yeah, but she’s been on a lot of dates, apparently.’ ‘Yeah, but I hear she’s crazy.’ I think you’ll find it has a lot to do with being a woman. And I resent that,” she says, “that there has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful.”

So she’ll date whom she wants, thankyouverymuch, famous or not.

“You can’t say, ‘I’m never gonna date a high-profile person in the arts!’” she says.

“But whoever I date, famous or not—whether I ever date again!—all chaos will break loose,” she adds. “With fabrication and frantic obsession and who likes who more and how it ended. But right now is easy because I’m single and happy, and it’s very relaxing.”
