Taylor Swift 'spectacular,' Ethel Kennedy says
Taylor Swift now has the public endorsement of her Bedford boyfriend's grandmother, Ethel Kennedy.
The Kennedy matriarch was attending an event at the Hyannisport Golf Club on Friday when a videographer from the Cape Cod Times asked her about Swift, who's dating Kennedy's grandson, Conor Kennedy, and spending time in a Cape Cod house near her own.
"[Swift] is just spectacular," Ethel Kennedy says in the below video. "She's just sensational, inside and out. She's very kind. You know what she really is? She's game. She had never sailed before; she sailed. ... She played anything that everyone else was doing, and she was good at it, and no fuss. And I'm happy that we'll be neighbors. I'm thrilled."
When the videographer noted that Conor had taken "a liking to her," Ethel played it cool. "Yes, how could you not? I think the world has."
Maybe Ethel's endorsement will convince other family members to invite "Caylor" to the next Kennedy wedding, which has been sort of a touchy subject for the power couple in recent months.
