Taylor Swift tells Ellen she doesn’t like hiding relationships. Was she taking a subtle dig at Joe and Jake?

Taylor Swift has had many a relationship in the public eye and she hasn’t been afraid to sing about her exes. On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing today, Taylor speaks to Ellen about living out relationships in front of everyone, and admits she doesn’t agree with people who think they should hide their romance. Do you think she’s referencing both Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal who wanted to keep their relationships with her private?

“If somebody wants to hide a relationship or has privacy issues then we don’t have the same viewpoint. For me, it’s just like live your life. If people happen to take picture then you know, you laugh about it in the car afterwards,” Taylor told Ellen. The singer was on the show promoting her new single “The Story of Us”.

When Taylor dated Joe, he consistently denied the two were dating. Once he split up with her via a 27-second phone call, she let loose to the media about Mr. Jonas. With Jake, Taylor was photographed with him out on dates in Brooklyn during their brief relationship. But things got more heated when the duo called the cops on paparazzi following them. Jake subsequently broke up with Taylor, reportedly because he was anxious about how public their relationship was.

Do YOU think Taylor was insulting Jake and Joe for wanting to keep their relationship private? Watch the video and let us know in your comments!

That girl loves publicity and being in the public eye all the time, she loves it when paparazzi follow her, she loves it when she has the attention, she didn’t respect joe or taylor lautner in their relationship, she pretends to be the nice girl but come on don’t be blind she’s more than a witch.

It doesn’t really matter. She probably just wanted to say that. I think she’s probably over Joe by now.

I don’t care about Jake, but please leave Joe Jonas alone. We have no idea about what really happened. And the “27-second” is lie, because she hung up the phone, not joe!

What an attention seeker. I can see why they dumped her, not everyone is comfortable being in the spotlight all the time. There’s nothing wrong with that…well apparently to her there is. *rolls eyes*

You CLEARLY don’t know what you’re talking about. Taylor’ one of the sweetest, most sincere people in show business. In the whole interview Taylor says she’s ok with it because she thinks it would sound obnoxious to complain all the time. Taylor has enough talent to get by without ‘attention seeking’ unlike many artists today *cough*gaga*cough*

You act like Taylor has a choice of whether or not she is followed by the paps. She’s famous. It comes with the job. She doesn’t ask to be followed. She has just acepted that being photographed is part of her job. Get over yourself weirdo.

So you’re saying that because she’s accepted the papparazzi she’s an attention seeker? You really don’t know her at all.

Even if she wasn’t famous and was dating a regular guy, you think she’d want it a secret? No. Just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you have to treat your relationship any different.
