Taylor Swift's not into wearing the pants in a relationship

When it comes to pants, Taylor Swift's not that into wearing them - literally, or, when it comes to love, metaphorically.

The 22-year-old singer told Harper's Bazaar in its new issue that while she will happily take total control of her super-successful professional life, she'd rather not have to do the same in a romance.

"It needs to be equal. If I feel too much like I'm wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up," said the singer, who often uses the heartbreak to score more hit records. "[I]t's wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with."

When it comes to fashion, dresses nearly always trump pants for Swift because, as she explained to Harper's Bazaar, "there's just something so feminine about a dress."

"Whether it's a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a '50s housewife - which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason - I just really like dresses."

    Taylor Swift always looks sickly, thin and like she has no character.

    Taylor, either embrace that you are a successful, hardworking, financially stable and independent GROWN woman -or- continue on w your misguided idealization of the 1950s when women wore poofy, pretty dresses and men "wore the pants" literally and metaphorically. Ya can't really have both, honey. If I were her, I'd just go with the former.

  23. ?????

    The reason she wears dresses is because she is so skinny that she wouldn't fill out a pair of pants. So yeah, dresses work for her. They cover up the fact she has no curves.

    It is better when attractive ladies don't wear pants or anything below the waist. It is just better. More friendly like.
