Taylor Swift Talks Sexism
Taylor Swift has a rep for being that girl who's always chasing boys and always unlucky in love – but the singer says it just isn't true, and it's sexist.
Taylor Swift has dated an impressive list of pretty big names — Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, John Mayer and most recently Harry Styles, among others — the singer says the pop culture obsession with her love life is sexist.
Swift sat down with Vanity Fair to chat about her boy-crazy reputation.
"If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," she told the mag, adding "[t]he fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with… it's just kind of ridiculous."
"For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."
"You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"
