It’s been a few months since we’ve heard tell of Taylor Swift being seriously romantically linked to anyone, so we’ve been getting a bit worried that Tay Tay may not be feeling all that well — after all, doesn’t she kind of love love (and then writing about how much love sucks)?
Well never fear, Swifties! The country pop star isn’t under the weather — she’s just playing for the other team now. Er, that came out wrong. Rather, she’s giving up on men — for now — to focus on the lady friends in her life, namely Lena Dunham and Lorde (and Selena Gomez, we hope).
Tay says that these days she’s “too busy” for a relationship and that if she had time to only make room for one in her life, “without a doubt she’d rather have female friendships than boyfriends.” Girrrrrl power!
The news comes after a string of rumors that Tay and gal pal Selena G. were taking a break from their BFF status thanks to Selena’s on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Looks like Taylor isn’t going to let a little thing like the Biebs get in the way of her female friendships, which we’ve gotta say is pretty refreshing. That’s like the first rule of feminism, right?
The Shake it Off singer goes on to say finding a man “doesn’t seem possible right now. It never really works. What does work is having incredible girlfriends who I can trust and tell everything.”
