Taylor Swift’s Cosmopolitan cover arrives just as her new album, Red, earns the title of biggest-selling album (1.208 million copies in one week) since 2002. She almost beat Eminem’s The Eminem Show, which sold 1.322 million records that year.
Inside the magazine, she talks about some of the same things that her very popular songs do: her love life.
Asked what she will not tolerate in a relationship, she tells Cosmo, “I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing: it’s a common-sense thing…I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.”
She explained the instant chemistry she wants to feel. “I need that unexplainable spark…I just need to see someone and feel, oh no, uh-oh. It’s only happened a few times in my life, but I feel like if I was gonna be with someone forever, it would be because I saw them and I thought, oh no.”
She also reveals that she wants to get married and have children: “Being a mom full-time, doing everything for my kids, having a bunch of them. One day, I’m sure.“
Unfortunately, the mag’s cover line, "Crazy For A Kennedy," is a bit late. After months of dating, Swift, 22 and Conor Kennedy, 18, have reportedly stopped seeing each other. This news follows her controversial attendance at a Kennedy family wedding, buying a $4.9 million mansion near Conor’s grandmother Ethel Kennedy and getting Ethel’s public blessing as a future daughter-in-law.
As the story points out, she’s a longtime fan of the Kennedy clan. She even said last year that she was “obsessed” with the history of John F. Kennedy and had read the 900-page book The Kennedy Women: A Saga of An American Family.
The Grammy-winning star, who has a $57 million brand, still has simple tastes. When Cosmo asks what makes her happy, the singer lists cats, hydrangeas, oceans, blankets, fireplaces and people with green eyes.
Swift's fans have noted that in his photos, Conor appears to have green eyes. And Swift has left another of her famous hints for fans in the album liner notes for her new song, "Everything Has Changed," which mentions "green eyes and freckles."
Her lyrics go on: “And all I’ve seen since 18 hours ago is green eyes and freckles and your smile in the back of my mind making me feel right.... And your eyes look like coming home, All I know is a simple name, everything has changed."
