March 06, 2013 02:47:36 GMT


Taylor Swift opens up about her relationship with Harry Styles in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, or rather she gives permission for an unnamed source to speak on her behalf because she doesn't want to break her own rule that she won't go into details about any of her relationship -- except in songs, that's it. Also in the same interview, she reacts to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's joke about her love life.

The authorized insider claims the One Direction member pursued her for a year, "He was all, like, 'You're amazing - I want to be with you. I want to do this.' " When he finally "wore her down," he reportedly cheated on her. The relationship got rocky after he alerted Swift of a picture on the web of him kissing a friend good-bye. She didn't buy his excuse because they were "making out like with their hands all up in each other's hair."
