Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy split

TAYLOR Swift says she "doesn't know" how to hold down a "normal relationship".

The 22-year-old singer - who has previously dated John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner - insists she tries to be "normal" when she is going out with men but finds it tough because of the pressures of living under the showbiz spotlight.

In an interview filmed last Monday (22.10.12), just days before news broke about her latest split from Conor Kennedy, she told talk show host Katie Couric: "I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal, love from a normal place and live a normal life.

"But there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lenses, on everything that happens between me and anybody else."

Despite having been in a number of relationships in recent years and basing the lyrics to the majority of her hit songs on love, the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' hitmaker insists she "doesn't know" a lot about the subject.

She added: "I don't really know that much about love, it turns out."

Taylor and Conor's split is believed to have been an amicable one, but the long distance between the 18-year-old Massachusetts-based hunk and the jet-setting blonde - who is currently promoting her fourth studio album, 'Red', which was released on Monday (22.10.12) - is thought to have been a stumbling block in their relationship.

The 'We are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hitmaker's relationship revelations to the ABC correspondent come as somewhat of a rarity as she tends to shy away from speaking openly about her private life, preferring to get such feelings down in her song lyrics.
