Taylor Swift has a new job. Jaime King took to Instagram to announce that she’d nominated the “Shake it Off” singer to be the godmother of her second, yet-to-arrive child. “Taylor Swift will forever be watching over our new baby,” King wrote. Swift herself posted a photo of communing with King’s pregnant tummy.
And it’s good that Swift has a new gig, since she’s apparently shying away from her old job of feuding with Katy Perry. In a lengthy and chat withthe Telegraph, Swift vows not to mention Perry anymore, so stop bringing her up, OK? “I’m not giving them anything to write about,” she says when asked about “Bad Blood,” her song allegedly about Perry. “I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen.” Fine, whatever. But she will talk about her love life. Or the lack thereof. “I’ll probably still be single” at 30, she predicts. “Let’s be honest. No one’s going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. ‘Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!’ I don’t know what’s going to happen if I’m ever content in a relationship — no idea how that’s going to work. I don’ t even know if that’s possible with the life I have.”
But at least she has her cats — which factor heavily into her prediction of where life will find her in the near future. “In five years’ time, she’ll be so afraid of everything, she doesn’t leave her house,” Swift offers, slipping into a bit of third person nuttiness. “She’s just surrounded by cats. So many cats, they’ve divided themselves up into armies and she wanders around lint-rolling the couch that no one’s going to sit on because she’s afraid to have people over.” Sure, she’s joking, but now I have a sad.
