This just in: Taylor Swift is very popular.

The latest case in point: Swift's fans (T-Swizzlers?) have proved to be more aggressive and enthusiastic than 25 million Little Monsters, as they helped Swift earn a new iTunes record.

She bested Lady Gaga in the process.

Within 50 minutes of its release last night, Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" shot to the top of the iTunes singles chart, knocking "Born This Way" from its perch as the fastest-selling single in digital history.

While fans try to determine just which ex-boyfriend Taylor is singing about this time around, the artist prepared them last night - during a live Web chat - for another emotional album.

Speaking of October's "Red," the superstar previewed:

"All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years.

"All those emotions - spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that - in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings."

So... who is it about?

That's the first question fans have for Taylor Swift, as the singer played host to a number of fans last night during a live Web chat and answered a number of questions about her career. To wit:

"I have a new album coming out October 22 and I wanted to tell you about it and I wanted to tell you all about it right now," she told the crowd, teasing them with the title of the debut single off the upcoming CD:

We Are Never Getting Back Together.

So, we ask again: Who is this breakup anthem about?

In the track - listen to "We Are Never Getting Back Together" now! - Swift croons about an on-again/off-again relationship, also mentioning an "indie record" that her ex sets out to make.

Any theories?

In her current personal life, Taylor couldn't be happier. She's dating Conor Kennedy and even just purchased a beach house right next door to his family.

Oh yes. It's safe to say things are getting very serious very quickly between Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend, the 18-year old son of Robert Kennedy Jr.

Not long after Swift and Conor Kennedy became an official couple, the singer introduced the famous offspring to her parents in Nashville - and now she's making a move toward his family. A major one.

As first reported by People, Taylor has purchased a $4.9 million mansion in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, right across the street from Conor's grandmother, Ethel Kennedy. It has seven bedrooms, five bedrooms and its view looks like this:

The residence is located on right on a private beach and comes with a guesthouse and a private road with seasonal security.

Asked by members of the press this month how she'd react if Swift actually married Conor, Ethel replied: "We should be so lucky!"

It may be a tad premature, but this is a significant step in that fantasy actually becoming a reality.

It's more than just official, Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are now serious.

Just how serious?

The country singing superstar introduced the 18-year old offspring of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Mary Kennedy to her parents in Nashville this week, with a Twitter user actually snapping a photo of the quartet at dinner:

Photos first surfaced of Swift and Kennedy on July 4 weekend, as they spent time with his family in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

Since then, the couple has shared a few meals in public and an insider tells Us Weekly that Swift is "head over heels" for her new young man: "It's really puppy love right now."

Conor's famous grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, is all for the union. Asked about it last week at the Television Critics Association press tour, Ethel said of the possibility that Swift could become part of this famous family:

"We should be so lucky!"

Ladies and gentlemen, we present... Tonor!

Okay, the nickname needs work, but we can now debate what it ought to be now that a source has confirmed Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy really are an item.

Taylor Swift Profile

Following a couple sightings of these two in New York, witnesses once again spotted them together on Friday in Hyannisport, Massachusettes.

They "walked on the beach and played on a trampoline," according to an onlooker, while another added that "Conor put his arm around Taylor and they kissed behind the boat shed."

Simply put: Yes, "Taylor is officially dating Conor Kennedy," the tabloid reports.

It's been a difficult time for the 18-year old recently, as his mother hanged herself in May. But Swift has been there Conor and she's received the Kennedy stamp of approval in the process.

"The Kennedys love Taylor and think she's amazing!" says the source.

Conor Kennedy may need to be on the lookout for future songs penned in his dishonor... because the 18-year old son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and Mary Kennedy is totally dating Taylor Swift!

Consider the evidence:

On July 25, Swift and Kennedy were spotted chowing down pizza in Mount Kisco, New York, walking out of the establishment"hand in hand," according to a People Magazine source.

A few days later, they dined with friends in Cape Cod, with Taylor reportedly cozying up to Conor and "smiling a lot," onlookers say.

Ironically, Swift had previously been linked to Patrick Schwarzenegger, a distant relative of Conor's, after photos captured her hanging out with Arnold's son during July 4 weekend. But she was actually spending time over that holiday with Kennedy.

On December 3, meanwhile, the connections will continue: Swift will be honored by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights due to her commitment to social change, notably her work against bullying and LGBT discrimination.

Taylor Swift has taken time away from possibly dating Patrick Schwarzenegger to update fans on the state of her music career. We think.

In a mysterious message posted to her Facebook page Monday, the young sensation wrote:

I'm writing you from Nashville, where I just sat in a big room with a lot of people and made a lot of decisions about a lot of things happening very soon. And as vague as that sentence was, I think you know what it means.

Yes. We assume it means that music's top money maker is setting out to pen/produce a new album.

If she can keep her hands off the son of a certain ex-governor, that is.

Taylor Swift better be hoping the fidelity apple falls very far from the tree...

According to TMZ sources, the superstar singer spent her Fourth of July getting cozy with Patrick Schwarzenegger, the 18-year old son of a certain ex-governor and housekeeper shagger.

Smith and Schwarzenegger reportedly hung out with members of the Kennedy family in Massachusetts, at one point taking a walk on the beach… ALONE!

It's unclear what transpired on the stroll, and the status of Taylor and Patrick is up in the air, but the former has certainly never shied away from dating others in the spotlight. Just ask Joe Jonas... or John Mayer... or Jake Gyllenhaal.

The only question remaining in this case: When it comes to Schwarzenegger's rumored embrace, will Swift be back?

They may both dominate the country music scene, but Carrie Underwood wants to make one thing clear: she is no Taylor Swift. And vice versa.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz last week, the former American Idol champion took issue with any comparisons between the successful stars, saying:

"I feel like we're definitely completely different artists... I'm a little bit older than she is and I feel like our music's completely different and if anyone tries to make any comparisons they really haven't listened to either one of us."

Underwood added that Swift's songs are a "bit lighter" and the two simply have different brands, a point that's difficult to argue with. But whose music do you prefer? Select a answer/winner to that question now:

And the Winner is?
