Taylor Swift claims she's been "publicly humiliated" because of jibes about her love life.

The 'Blank Space' singer is known for having a string of famous former boyfriends but she says jokes and cruel comments about her dating around have left her feeling she shouldn't date anybody.

As the new Glamour cover star, the 25-year-old says: "There is no easy way for me to engage with romance. I'm really busy, so I can't. And it's a good thing that I feel really independent and I feel that my friends are all I need.

"It's kind of a sad way I got there though, being shamed into it. What else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone's calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That's public humiliation. And I don't think its fair."

Taylor's past boyfriends include Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer, and she is famous for writing songs inspired by past dating experience.

Most recently, she's been linked to DJ Calvin Harris, after they were pictured holding hands while leaving a Haim concert in Los Angeles earlier this month.

Neither Taylor nor Calvin have confirmed the romance.

Taylor's best friend Jaime King, however, recently said she approved of Calvin, saying he was a good guy. Pregnant Jaime's already named Taylor as godmother to her unborn child.
