OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Talks Boys, Candy and Jokes Over Tea

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Tea parties just have a way of making any and all conversations seem super classy and sophisticated. I don’t know if it’s the floral loveseat, the fine china or the British accents. But when Taylor Swift joined those two little English girls (Sophia Grace and her cousin Rosie) in tutus for tea time on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the three girls covered everything from favorite princesses and glitter glue to candy bars and boyfriends. And they did so like the fine ladies I know they are. Rosie was even bold enough to come right out and ask Swift if she had a boyfriend. “I don’t,” Swift said. “Do you?” Rosie confided in Swift that she didn’t have one now, but she said she used to. Then Swift asked her, “Was he a friend of yours who was a boy, so that it doesn’t seem as weird?” The most charming part of the whole tea party is that Swift put on a tutu and a crown right when she joined the girls. They might have risen to fame because of their rendition of a Nicki Minaj song, but if I had to guess, I’d say Swift is their favorite princess of all right now.
