Now, who doesn't know about Taylor Swift? She's an American sweetheart, loved and worshiped by people from all over the world. From her music to her fashion style, personal life, romantic interests, breakups, song lyrics, famous BFFs, feuds, pet cats, and everything that has anything to do with Taylor Swift has always and always found a space in gossip and rumor spreading magazines, newspapers and website columns.
But, like you and me, Taylor is just a human and she has flaws, too. And, here are 5 things about Taylor Swift that prove that she's not perfect!
1. She Dates Too Much
Years ago, Taylor Swift fans argued that she's young and is allowed to have fun. This argument came after Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up and she was the 'victim' of slut-shaming. The world suddenly turned against Taylor and she was the 'victim' of utter hate.

Her haters bashed her for writing songs about her exes to get attention and how none of her relationships last because she is the problem but not the men she dates. But as usual, Taylor did what she does best, she wrote a song called 'Shake It Off' about her haters and made millions of dollars out of it. Hey, make hay while the sun shines, right?
2. She Falls In Love Easily
Taylor Swift is only 26 years old and she has dated a total of 19 (approx) famous and non-famous guys. That's a decent amount of boyfriends for a decent girl like Taylor Swift, don't you think? So, Taylor Swift fans, is she just having fun or too much fun?
But I admit, she must have gone through so much pain, breakups are never easy. And, 19 breakups make Taylor Swift more than just a 'victim' of utterly painful heartbreaks.
3. She Stakes Her Heart For The Sake Of Genuine Lyrics
Taylor Swift is not a private person. Her life is an open book. And, she's known for her controversial song lyrics that she has written over the years about her ex boyfriends.

Taylor Swift has only dated Brandon Borello, Jordan Alford, Sam Armstrong, Joe Jonas, Lucas Till, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Cory Montieth, Toby Hemingway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Young, Chord Overstreet, Garrett Hedlund, Eddie Redmayne, Zac Efron, Conor Kennedy, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston till date.
But alas, some of her few exes didn't make enough of an impact on Taylor to earn them a song. But the rest of her boyfriends, they did hurt her deeply enough that she not only had to write songs about them, record them but she also had to share her pain with the world (As for Calvin Harris, lets just wait till Taylor releases her next album). Because, that's the only mature way Taylor Swift knows of, to get over her heartbreaks!
4. She's A Hypocrite
So, apparently it's okay If Taylor Swift sings about other people, but if other people are to sing about her, they must take her approval for the lyrics!
It is a known knowledge, that Taylor Swift took a direct dig at Kanye West in her Grammy's 2016 acceptance speech because he called her a 'b*tch' in his song Famous. She painted Kanye as a bad guy and a liar. While the truth was later revealed by provoked Mrs West that Kanye actually called Taylor Swift prior to the release of his song to give her a heads up. And Taylor gave her consent stating, "And you know, if people ask me about it I think it would be great for me to be like- Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Jokes on you guys, We're fine."
Anyways, Kanye didn't know that except for Taylor Swift, the rest of the singers and rappers are supposed to get a written consent from the people they're gonna sing about! And, he only called.
5. Blasting Kanye In Her Grammy's 2016 Acceptance Speech Was A Dumb Move
So, we all felt really sorry for Taylor Swift when Kanye West stole her thunder on that unfortunate night at the VMAs in 2009. And then Kanye West humiliated Taylor again when he released his single called 'Famous' in February, 2016. The lyrics offended Taylor to the point that she had to stoop so low and blast Kanye in her Grammy's 2016 acceptance speech.

As for the song Famous, what Kanye sang about Taylor was beyond shameful. Rappers aren't supposed to use dirty words such as n*gga, b*tch, f*ck, s*x, wh*re, sl*t, etc in their songs. Because that is not expected of a rapper, at all!
Turned out, Taylor did permit Kanye to sing about her and he wasn't lying about discussing the lyrics with her. Then, why did Miss Swift blabber that non-sense at the Grammys? Was she trying to take revenge? Did she see it as a perfect opportunity to paint Kanye as a bad guy? Obviously, she was unaware of the existence of their phone conversation. Anyways, it was such a dumb move and Taylor Swift of all people, should have known better.
