(Newser) – Did Taylor Swift predict her split with Conor Kennedy before it happened? According to Us, in an interview recorded days ago but airing this afternoon on Katie Couric's talk show, Swift confessed: "I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal, love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lens, on everything that happens between me and anybody else. I don't really know that much about love, it turns out." More from the split of the century:

  • What was behind the breakup? A source tells Radar: "Conor's just an 18-year-old kid and wasn't ready for anything super serious, but Taylor is looking for her soulmate and it kind of freaked him out with how strong she came on. Taylor is obsessed with the Kennedys and was living out a fairytale with Conor. But she was more obsessed with the idea of dating a Kennedy, than the actual Kennedy she was dating."
  • TMZ has what might be evidence of that: Swift is still looking to buy that Hyannis Port mansion across the street from Ethel Kennedy's place, and the deal is scheduled to close in two weeks.
  • One thing's for sure: This whole fiasco has been very embarrassing for the Kennedys, the New York Post reports. Just hours after reports of the breakup emerged, Kerry Kennedy announced in an email that Swift will be honored at a high-profile Kennedy family gala, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights’ Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner in December. Apparently the family isn't 100% convinced things are over between Taylor and Conor for good, sources say.
