Taylor Swift is reportedly dating Conor Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy Jr., according to Gossip Cop. Swift got to know the Kennedy family after Ethel Kennedy, grandmother of Conor, reached out to the country star last year. Swift later accompanied Ethel's daughter Rory Kennedy to the Sundance Film Festival, where they viewed a documentary on Ethel. The Kennedys also invited Swift to spend July 4th at the family compound on Cape Cod. 

Since then the highest celebrity earner under 30 has stayed close to Conor: The pair was spotted hanging out just last week, reports People. Swift and Kennedy grabbed some pizza in Kennedy's hometown of Mount Kisco, New York, on July 25th, and later noshed with friends at Baxter's on Cape Cod July 29th. The New York Post reports the pair were even more intimate, kissing and holding hands over the weekend.

Swift had been linked with Patrick Schwarzenegger last month, though recent events suggest otherwise.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
