The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division, is reporting that Taylor Swift gave her virginity to a man she thought was going to marry her. Three months later, she had a party for herself, and he didn’t show up. This took place at Christmastime of 2010. I don’t know exactly why The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division is reporting it now. Maybe Ms. Swift’s handlers issued a new press release about it, to drum up publicity. Or something.
Pop star, yes, but also just a 24 year old kid.
In any case, as the mother of a young woman about the same age as Taylor, I find the whole story heartbreaking. Some of the media outlets have been down-right catty towards this now 24 year old young woman, over the years since she broke up with Jake. Philly.com calls her the “Miss Goodie Goodie of the pop community.” The Huffington Post admitted that “ for her part, Swift is devastated,” but opined, “On the plus side, at least she’s got some new material for her next album.” Hollywood Life wants to know: “What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Is Taylor right to diss Jake again? Should she and Harry reunite?”
The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division seems indifferent to the fact that Taylor was 20 years old when this happened. She was and to some extent remains, a vulnerable young woman. I’m guessing the authors of these catty columns about her are somewhat older than 20.
She was “saving herself for marriage.” The guy convinced her to have sex with him. Shortly after, he ditched her.
