It wouldn’t be summer without photos of celebrities relaxing on yachts or shacking up in lavish beachfront estates we could never afford, and this year Taylor Swift has done her part to provide us with the most enviable of old-money New England vacation photos. While Swift and rumored boyfriend Conor Kennedy have be seen holding hands and crashing weddings around Hyannis Port, Mass., they’re currently learning about the difficulties that come with long-distance relationships. It’s par for the course when one-half of a couple is a pop superstar promoting a new single in Nashville, and the other is going back to high school in a matter of days.
Taylor missed Conor so much, she sent a plane for him a few days later. He’s been with her ever since, and his family doesn’t know when he will be back. Things have become so serious between them so fast that no one in Hyannis Port would be surprised if they eloped.
Finally, the royal wedding Americans have been waiting for! But does the whole “his family doesn’t know when he’ll be back” sound a little like kidnapping to you? At 22-years-old and 18, respectively, it’s unlikely that Taylor and Conor are planning to walk down the aisle—then again, look at Miley Cyrus. While there may be a lot of PDA happening on and around the Kennedy grounds, the above pull quote is probably the exaggerated concern of a lifelong nosy neighbor looking for a few minutes of attention from a New York City paper. But maybe it’s a love story? (Baby just say yes.)
Vanity Fair has already done us the favor of investigating whether or not Conor would be allowed to leave Deerfield Academy for an impromptu wedding ceremony, but perhaps he’s looking to abandon further formal education all together for a life on the road by T-Swift’s side. This is what happens when you’re too quick to give something your approval, Ethel.
