I like a man to take control’: Award winning songwriter Taylor Swift admits she enjoys feeling like a 1950s housewife




With a string of broken romances behind her at the relatively tender age of 22, anyone would be forgiven for thinking that the sheer scale of Taylor Swift’s Celebrity is the problem.

She’s accomplished much in her young life – and has the awards to prove it – so it’s easy to see how she could intimidate a partner; and also understandable if she has an off-putting need to be in control.

But Taylor, who recently split with Conor Kennedy, 18, has revealed to Harper’s Bazaar that it’s when a man fails to take the reins – or at least his share of them – that problems set in.

The frock loving country singer, who has also dated Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and John Mayer, also admitted that she loves feeling like a ’50s housewife in her beloved vintage finds.

She explained: ‘It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up.’

She added: ‘Relationships are the ultimate collaboration but It’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know?

‘That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with.’

She also talked about how she doesn’t like to wear the trousers, quite literally and said of her dress collection: ‘Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife – which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason – I just really like dresses.’

And all the drama gives her something to discuss with her celebrity BFFs Selena Gomez and Emma Stone.

She revealed: ‘We never talk about fashion, about career, about our ambitions or our projects,” she says of her pals. “We just talk about relationships, feelings, love, and boys.’
