Why does Taylor Swift still beard?

After reading the blind item below I have to wonder why Taylor Swift beards? I could maybe understand her doing it when she was new and trying to make a name for herself, but she has been ubber famous for years now. Why continue to make a fool of herself? Is she just dumb?:

This girl is furious about her most recent failed relationship! Her anger is directed at two parties in particular: the guy with whom she recently broke up; and her management team, for getting her into this relationship in the first place.

While her jet was being readied to whisk her off to her next location, she ranted to a friend about the coupling. She is mad at the guy because she feels that he didn’t hold up his end of the bargain. She called him a “F*cking idiot!” and “A bad actor” and complained that “He didn’t even f*cking try!” to make them look like a real couple. This is especially infuriating to her because his management team was the one that originally hatched the plan to set them up.

She is also mad at her management team because this is not the first time they have set her up in a relationship that went wrong. When her friend questioned her why she continued to allow herself to be set up, she went ballistic.

“Why?! Why?! Because we need the f*ing publicity, that’s why! And instead of getting good publicity, now I look like a f*cking slut!” She finished the conversation by declaring, “I’m done! I am never doing this again! I am ready to quit this whole f*cking thing!”

The entire time she was saying this, Our Girl was pacing up and down near the runway, yelling and crying and gesturing to emphasize her fury. That’s a far cry from the sweet, together girl you see during performances and TV interviews.

Oh, and given all this, we think it’s safe to say that this couple is never getting back together. Taylor Swift

Do you think she really likes the guys she dates and asks her management to set her up with them? She seems so young, like she would have naive schoolgirl crushes on these guys. But then you listen to the sophistication of some of her songs (except for We Are Never, which she says she wrote because she knew it was the type of bubble gum music Gyllenhal would hate)...I don't know. She seems to go after every actor or singer who has a closeted reputation. From Jake Gyllenhaal to Harry Styles? I mean, come on! Why doesn't she do a cover of "Johnny Are You Queer?"

There was a BI not that long ago that she got pregnant during one celebrity relationship that was real (the popular guess was John Mayer) and that, since then, her handlers pair her up only with gay men in order to prevent any future complications of that sort.

What was the rationale behind her being with Taylor Lautner?

by Anonymousreply 2002/10/2013

There was another BI about her in December that sort of explains it.


This popular young celebrity is pretty and personable and every marketer’s dream. Most marketers would flinch, though, if one of her darkest secrets was to come to light. There was a time when she actually dated guys in whom she was genuinely interested. One of these guys was a celebrity. Like other Good Girls before her, she fell hard for him, and had a physical relationship with him. But he was just using her. She was crushed when she figured that out. Even worse, she was pregnant. There was never a question about her having the baby. Both she and her team were absolutely panic-stricken at the thought of America’s Good Girl bearing a child out of wedlock by America’s Biggest Jerk. The baby was terminated, the couple broke up, and she went back to being America’s Good Girl. It’s one of the reasons her team has been so eager since then to have her beard for gay male celebrities since then. It’s much, much safer that way.

--- the impregnator was John Meyer.

You may be right, R36, but why does she 'date' guys like Taylor Lautner who are probably gay?

by Anonymousreply 3702/11/2013

I think Taylor has a method. All of the buzz around her crappy songs is always, always "who is this song about?" That is what sells her records.

Her entire album RED was based on a 2-month faux relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal. And how did we know that little details in her songs, like the maple lattes and the scarf, pointed to Jake? Because those little details were all in the fabricated US Weekly stories about their "dates."

This shit is orchestrated years in advance.

The next album will all "ooooo is this song about Harry or that Kennedy boy?"

It's all she can do. Amazingly, this crap is still selling.

The Guardian's Andrew Brown writes that Benedict's resignation "can be seen as an [bold]implied rebuke[/bold] to his predecessor':

[italic]...During the decrepitude of John Paul II, Pope Benedict, as Cardinal Ratzinger, was his right-hand man. It may be that his experience then planted in him a wish to leave office while he was still able to discharge his duties.

Although his accession was greeted with horror by the liberals in the church, he spent almost all his time in office struggling ineffectually with the problems inherited from John Paul II. His most remarkable innovation was his decision to resign as he felt his powers failing. That ought to be a precedent that the church will make use of again.

In Benedict's resignation statement can be seen an implied rebuke to his predecessor, who argued that clinging to life and power for as long as possible was itself a form of witness to Christ's suffering. Benedict, however, says: "I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today's world … strength of both mind and body are necessary."[/italic]


by Anonymousreply 4202/11/2013

r42 - I know Taylor Swift is an insufferable bitch, but to imply that she orchestrated a collapse in the Catholic church is a bit much. Still, her management likely has floated the idea of a long distance relationship with Pope Benedict. And they would have went for it if market testing didn't show that it would alienate many sane people and the entire Jewish population.

Bearding is an industry, OP. It provides press for her and "cover" for the beardees. The thing is, even the tween blog followers are starting to catch on. Nobody was buying the Gylenhaal fiasco and the last thing with the One Direction guy is just laughable. There was blind item that she was mighty pissed at him for now even attempting to keep up his part of the facade. Notice how the rumors about him as his alleged older male lover seemed to intensify (at least on this site) when he was seen out and about unconvincingly in love and at her side.

Taylor Swift can't be lesbian. Gays or Lesbian are literally chased out of the Nashville music scene. Look at mob riot which chased k d Lang away years ago.

by Anonymousreply 4803/31/2013

I think because she needs a constant supply of ex-boyfriends to write her stupid songs about. It is probably much easier to accept a bearding offer than go out, meet someone, actual have a relationship, break up....etc.

by Anonymousreply 4903/31/2013

I know with modern science and turkey basters there are new ways to do it, but unless it was a wanted pregnancy, you can only get unexpectedly pregnant by fucking. Everyone knows that Taylor doesn't put out.

The reference to Good Girl in the BI is Jake Gyllenhall who made a movie with Mike White and Jennifer Aniston called, The Good Girl. So my analysis of the BI is that yes, it's about Taylor & Jake Gyllenhall, but it is a complete fabrication.

Fake relationships are not only promoted because one or both parties is gay. Fake relationships are most often business decisions, period. Whether it hides a gay relationship or not.

Celebrities have public images to promote. Agents & Publicists pair them up for business purposes, or because one celeb really wants to meet another .Taylor's handlers are paranoid about her image. They want Squeaky Clean. I can't wait for the day when she has a meltdown.

I honestly think she's an incredibly repressed gay lady.

She reminds me of those girls who date guy after guy and don't realize why it's not working (apart from those she's bearded for).

I think the perceived frigidness is just a manifestation of how much she's repressed herself.

She doesn't seem sexual because she's repressed her sexuality.

Accoding to EL, she doesn't beard, she is sex mad and cheats on all her bfs, that's why they break up.

ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 03/28 **#7** This celebrity is A list. A+ list name recognition. She also likes to pretend she is a victim. All the time. Nothing is ever her fault. Not really true, but she likes to pretend it is true and if you disagree with her, you do so at your peril. With lots of failed relationships in the past, at least three of the breakups were because she cheated. She has never discussed them or mentioned them. What about the time she was dating a then A list tweener. The reason for the breakup was not the one she gave, but was because she could not stop making moves on one of the tweener's closest friends. It was constant. She would make excuses to be alone with the friend under the guise of working together. There was also the time she was dating this A list actor and "accidentally" walked in on the actor's brother-in-law while he was just getting out of the shower. The fact that she was only wearing a towel so she could have her shower was just a coincidence. Well, that was her excuse to the wife anyway.

A list celeb: Taylor Swift

A List Tweener: Harry Styles

Tweener's Bestie: Ed Sheeran

A List Actor: Jake Gyllenhaal

Taylor Swift: she doesn't ping and I'm a lesbian but I think it's a real possibility that she's a lesbian and that the bearding is both to hide that and for publicity reasons. The drama and all.

by Anonymousreply 7505/22/2013

I'm not convinced Taylor's any kind of sexuality. A bit like Tom Cruise, almost asexual, too precious. I'm sure that's just based on her image though. She could be a real partier.

I'm more convinced she's all about career, music and money and I'd say good for her if it meant we, the care-worn public, didn't have to hear about her stupid fauxmances and ridiculous PR whinings on loop all day and night when they go wrong.

I wanted to ref these comments:

[quote]Taylor Swift can't be lesbian. Gays or Lesbian are literally chased out of the Nashville music scene. Look at mob riot which chased k d Lang away years ago.

So she can't be gay because...she hasn't come out yet to be chased out of Nashville. Wouldn't that back up exactly why someone would stay IN the closet? And whatever she is, there will be plenty of closeted friends and supporters in Nashville/country to cushion a star if they were closeted. (Again, I'm not convinced she is, but your post seems to view the scene as being a bit too hickish and one-dimensional.)

[quote][R31], if Harry Styles is gay, why is he always being connected to all these women in the British papers? Why are there older women who he's supposedly having affairs with?

Newsflash in the 21st century: again, I'm not making a statement on anyone's sexuality per se, but that's EXACTLY the route I'd expect someone closeted to go.

[R92] She exaggerated her link with John Mayer. Apparently they never had sex or hooked up outside of her giving him a handjob and disinterested blow job. Supposedly, the claim by her that he broke her heart threw him for a loop since it was never a relationship but she got milage in the press for it.

I heard that story years ago and it made me think she's been pretending to be straight by ' dating these guys and acting unhappy in love'. I heard the John Mayer thing from a friend of Mayer's who said that the one time John wasn't a douche bag with a woman, he gets tagged one by a little girl using his fame to look straight and desirable.------------copied from the thread I linked.
