In a video interview last Friday, Ethel Kennedy offered another ringing endorsement of her grandson Conor Kennedy's girlfriend, Taylor Swift. In the past, Ethel has limited herself to enthusiastic "I hope so"s when asked about Swift (Will Conor and Taylor get married? "I hope so!" Will Swift move next door? "I hope so!"). But at a charity golf tournament last Friday, Ethel practically gushed when an interviewer inquired about the constantly surprised pop star:
22-year-old high school freshman Taylor Swift has upset some powerful people in her day. Kanye West, when she won "Best Female Video" at the 2009 VMA's. Victoria Gifford Kennedy, when she crashed a Kennedy wedding and tried to touch her rough paws to Kennedy skin ("a handshake," Taylor called it) — how vulgar. But what Taylor didn't realize when she crashed that wedding was that she was crossing a force far more powerful than either Kanye West or Victoria Gifford Kennedy:
Taylor Swift, the girl in your AP U.S. History class who always turns around and asks you what grade you got, was totally spotted kissing Alexis' ex-boyfriend Conor Kennedy last weekend, and Alexis said she didn't care because she was with Logan now but then Amanda saw Alexis walk out of the bathroom with her eyes all red like she had been crying and it was so sad and everyone knows that Taylor gives boys BJs in the boiler room anyway so what does Conor even see in her?
