Taylor Swift doesn’t think there is anything wrong with dating an 18-year-old!
The country star, who took her romance with high school junior Conor Kennedy public the week of his 18th birthday, sounds off about the backlash she has received for dating a younger man in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“How did I kidnap him?” she responds to a story that she “kidnapped” Conor and flew him on a private jet to Nashville.
“You can’t kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations now!”
Swift, who is pals with fellow young cougar Selena Gomez, also admits that she may have “got the idea” of dating a younger man from the Wizards of Waverly Place actress, who is currently dating Justin Bieber.
“Probably!” she replied “quick and cheerfully” when asked about the correlation.
And the 22-year-old also addresses the fact that before she hooked up with Conor she was “publically touting her interest in the Kennedy family history.”
“Weird,” she says. “Oh, my God, I know. It’s like – things happen in my life in coincidental ways that are weird.”
“That’s not what’s happening,” she “practically yells, sending her eyes skyward.”
