Taylor Swift's fifth studio album 1989 finally drops this week, and the country-turned-pop songstress is still giving revealing interviews, as her promotional tour comes to a close.

Last week, Taylor revealed that she hasn't dated in 18 months

Today, she gave us a little insight as to why she prefers to spend time at home with her cats:

"I get beat up in the press whenever I go near a boy," Taylor told London's Daily Mail.

"So you can understand why I'm taking a bit of a break...It's seen as a scandal when I date a boy, and yet dating is a normal thing for a twentysomething to do."

You may have noticed that Taylor frequently uses the word "boy" when discussing her past relationships. Turns out, that's no accident.

 

Like her previous albums, 1989 contains plenty of veiled references to her exes. For example, it's been widely assumed that "Out of the Woods" is about Harry Styles, whom Taylor dated briefly in ...

One lyric that's caught fans' attention is the line, "Boys only want love when it's torture." Taylor claims that strange desire is one of the main things that separated boys from men.

"Boys only want love if it's torture and a constant chase," Taylor says. "Men want love if it's real, right, healthy and consistent...The male species has divided into two groups - it's boys and men."

"You can have a 40 year old boy, and 20 year old man."

Sounds like Taylor's really figured out what she wants in a relationship. Although, she's gotta admit, if it weren't for all those "boys," she may never have written some of her best songs.

One Direction has teamed up with the unlikeliest of collaborators for the video to their new single "Steal My Girl."

The clip begins with Harry and the lads emerging from the a trailer in the desert and wondering aloud about who's directing the video. 

On cue, Danny DeVito rolls up and hilariously goes full Hollywood douche on the pop stars. 

"We're here in the name of art," DeVito tells the boys. "We're here to commit ourselves to a higher form of expression." DeVito then takes a loud bite of an apple and makes it kinda gross, as only he can.

The new One Direction album, Four, doesn't drop until next month but the 1D crew is already in full promotion mode:

Though she hasn't yet confirmed it publicly, it's pretty clear that Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods" is about Harry Styles.

Recently, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry during an exclusive listening party with a group of fans, and Swfity diehards have parsed the lyrics and found numerous clues that the singer had Styles on the mind when she wrote the song.

Taylor looked better than ever as she stepped out in Manhattan today. NYC seems to agree with her!

Obviously, there's nothing new or unusual about Taylor writing about ex-boyfriends and broken hearts. After all, intimate breakup ballads have been her bread and butter ever since her first single hit the airwaves back in 2006.

Yes, Taylor has used her love life as inspiration throughout her career and it's a practice that's often made her the butt of jokes. This time around, however, Swift isn't taking the criticism lying down.

Last week, British pop star and television personality Olly Murs, offered the following take on Taylor's latest single:

At midnight today, Taylor Swift released "Out of the Woods" on iTunes, the second track off her upcoming album, "1989."

The chorus continuously asks whether the singer and an unnamed paramour are “out of the woods yet,” a question that could likely apply to any of Taylor’s ex-boyfriends.

But many astute listeners believe the single is centered on Harry Styles, pointing to a couple instances where Swift is clearly making a reference to her time with the One Direction hunk.

FIRST, Swift croons about how “last December, we were built to fall apart.”

And those in the know recall that Taylor and Harry pretty much went public in December 2012, holding hands in New York City and going to tattoo parlors together.

It's on, y'all. Just when you thought the Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry feud had begun to die down, KP went nuclear by publicly flirting with Taylor's ex, Harry Styles. As you might imagine, Swifty is less than pleased.

Though they didn't date for very long, Taylor spoke about her breakup with Harry just last week, and she made it sound as though it's still a bit of a sore subject.

A sore subject that Katy insidiously used to her advantage in what's quickly becoming the Biggie vs. Tupac of passive-aggressive pop star feuds.

A witness recently told Star magazine about about a recent, intimate dinner shared by Katy and Harry:

Over the weekend, Taylor Swift invited some fans to her home in NYC where they got to be the first to hear her forthcoming album, 1989.

Taylor Swift Parties With a Fan!

Taylor told her lucky guests that they were allowed to talk to the press about any part of the evening, as long as they didn't reveal any of the song titles or lyrics.

So we get to live vicariously through their stories and pretend that we partied with Swifty ourselves. Based on what the attendees have said so far, it turns out  - to the surprise of no one  - that Taylor is the perfect host.

Apparently, one highlight of the evening was when conversation turned to the brief period when Taylor dated Harry Styles. Rather than shy away from the topic, Swift summed up the short-lived relationship in epic fashion:

Many have expressed their displeasure with ESPN's coverage of Michael Sam and his upcoming NFL regular season debut.

They feel the network is devoting too much time to speculating about Sam's locker room interactions with his teammates, and unfairly focusing on his sexual preference over his gameplay. 

It remains a matter of controversy that's divided the online community.

But one thing tweeters and comment boards haters across the web can hopefully agree on is that when Harry Styles uses his considerable influence to lend support to Sam - and by extension the LGBT community - it's pretty cool.

Yup. It is possible for Harry Styles to get even more adorable.

The One Direction singer, whose affinity for children was made clear when he recently appeared on Sesame Street, spotted a sign in the audience of a concert in Nashville on Tuesday that read, "I’m here for my 3rd birthday."

Styles responded by picking the toddler (named Eric) up in his arms and carrying him on stage, assuring the child in the process that his tattoos are real.

One Direction then called out to another fan (named Megan) who also was celebrating a birthday and the boys sang the two of them “Happy Birthday."

Not as sexy as a Harry Styles naked photo on Instagram, we know. But a whole lot sweeter.
