TAYLOR SWIFT has been notably single for some time now, while her number of famous BFFs - from Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez to Lena Dunham and Lorde - has increased exponentially. A deliberate switch, she says, since the two don`t seem to be compatible.
`I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime,` Swift said. `And I`m just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore. I don`t like seeing slideshows of guys I`ve apparently dated. I don`t like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at awards shows. I don`t like it when headlines read `Careful, Bro, She`ll Write a Song About You,` because it trivialises my work. And so, I just don`t date When your number-one priority is getting a boyfriend, you`re more inclined to see a beautiful girl and think, `Oh, she`s gonna get that hot guy I wish I was dating.` But when you`re not boyfriend-shopping, you`re able to step back and see other girls who are killing it and think, `God, I want to be around her.``
Despite the friendships she has built over the past few years, it`s not all sweetness and light when you remove men from the equation: some girls are just mean, Swift asserts.
`For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,` she told Rolling Stone of one fellow singer who was the inspiration behind a song called Bad Blood from her new album, 1989. `She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, `Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?` Then, she did something so horrible, I was like, `Oh, we`re just straight-up enemies.` And it wasn`t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. I`m surprisingly non-confrontational - you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It`s awkward, and I don`t like it.`
