It's been quite a summer for Taylor Swift
and new her beau, Conor Kennedy.
The enamored couple have held hands at a pizzeria
in Mount Kisco, N.Y., been welcomed by the Kennedy clan,
visited Swift's hometown of Nashville
and escaped to Hyannis Port, Mass.
Swift, 22, is even reportedly purchasing a 13-room home
across the street from Connor's grandmother, Ethel, in Hyannis Port.
Things are moving quickly for the young couple, but is Kennedy, the 18-year-old son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy
, ready to make his red carpet debut at the MTV VMAs on Sept. 6?
The singer, who is not nominated for any awards
, is slated to perform her latest single,
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," for the first time live at the awards show. Fans can't help but wonder if Kennedy will accompany the Grammy award winner on her big night.
If he attends, Kennedy will have to deal with more than just posing for photos. Swift's ex-boyfriends, John Mayer
, Taylor Lautner
and Joe Jonas
may also be in attendance.
But there is one major hitch for the couple's potential date: Kennedy, a senior at a boarding school on the east coast, is due back on campus Sept. 6 – the same day as the awards show – for the beginning of the new school year.
Other scheduled acts at the VMAs include Pink
, Alicia Keys
, Green Day and One Direction
. The VMAs will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
