Taylor Swift says ‘public humiliation’ over her love life was ‘unfair’

Singer says 'I feel that my friends are all I need'

Taylor Swift has spoken about the ‘public humiliation’ she faced over her love life and has deemed the public’s reaction as ‘unfair’.

Speaking as the Guest Editor of June’s Glamour Magazine, the singer detailed her struggle with romance and how she has grown to ‘feel really independent’ as a result of the attention.

“There is no easy way for me to engage with romance. I’m really busy, so I can’t. And it’s a good thing that I feel really independent and I feel that my friends are all I need.”

“It’s kind of a sad way I got there though, being shamed into it.”

“What else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone’s calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That’s public humiliation. And I don’t think its fair.”

Taylor Swift has recently been linked to Scottish DJ Calvin Harris. This is her first reported boyfriend since ending her relationship with One Direction’s Harry Styles in January 2013.

As reported at the start of this week, Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ album has officially gone double platinum in the UK.

The singer’s fifth studio LP has now sold over 600,000 copies in the country since it was first released last October.

Earlier this week, Swift was awarded the ‘Milestone Award for Youngest ACM Entertainer of the year’ by the Academy of Country Music.

She was presented the award by her mother Andrea Swift, who delivered a moving speech in honour of her daughter’s achievements.

Swift only recently revealed her mother had been diagnosed with cancer.

The singer confirmed the news of her mother’s diagnosis on Tumblr. Explaining to fans that she would normally put her feelings down to music, Swift said that her mother had urged her to speak directly to fans in a bid to convince their own parents to get checked out for the illness.
