Because she would risk clicking on rumors like this one: that she so missed her 18-year-old boyfriend Conor Kennedy that she "kidnapped" him from his high school and flew him to Nashville on her private jet.
"How did I kidnap him?" Swift, 22, exclaims to Rolling Stone when told about the rumor du jour. "You can't kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now!"
Laughing, she adds: "It's an interesting way to spin something into a story. ... See, this is why I don't read stuff."
As for a more documented report – Kathie Lee Gifford confirming she witnessed Swift and Conor crash a Kennedy family wedding – the singer responds: "I have no idea what happened there."
"I think that story was based on the biggest misunderstanding, 'cause I would never knowingly show up somewhere that I thought I wasn't invited to," she tells the magazine. "And I would never want to upstage anybody."
Swift is featured on the cover of Rolling Stone on newsstands Friday.
