Far-right commentator Candace Owens lashed out at Taylor Swift over rumors that she's dating Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce and claimed no man wants to marry her.
While Owens doesn't necessarily disapprove of the rumored romance, she has taken aim at Swift herself, criticizing her personality and newfound interest in football. She also complained that she even heard about Swift's budding romance while "climbing the summits" in remote Wyoming.
During a recent episode of her podcast, Owens did not hold back in her critique of Swift, referring to her as "annoying and cringy." Owens also took the opportunity to question Swift's dating history, suggesting it consists mainly of flings rather than long-term relationships.
You can hear what Owens said in the video below.

"Why hasn't any man stepped up to the plate to marry her? "Why didn't [actor and ex-partner] Joe Alwyn want to marry her after six years of dating her?"
"Well, maybe it's because Taylor Swift has a lot of personalities, and people think that that's cute and it's funny . . . but me, maybe I suffer from also being a 34-year-old adult woman, I just think it's odd."
"I think her behavior is really, really cringy."
Owens suggested Swift does not have a genuine interest in football and implied that her recent involvement in the sport is insincere by adding began caring about the sport "this Sunday."
"She's just so fake, so plastic, so manufactured, very unauthentic, and that has always been my assessment about Taylor Swift."
Owens has been harshly criticized for her remarks.
Last month, eagle-eyed social media users worked themselves up after spotting the pop sensation in New York City donning a teardrop-shaped pendant adorned with an opal—the birthstone of the football-playing Kelce.
Their connection gained further attention when Swift showed her support for Kelce during the Kansas City Chiefs' 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears. Swift was seen cheering from Kelce's suite at Arrowhead Stadium, alongside Kelce's mother, Donna Kelce.
Kelce had previously attempted to give Swift his phone number, in the form of a beaded friendship bracelet, during one of her Eras Tour shows in July. The dating rumors continue to fuel interest in Travis's love life, especially since his 2016 dating show, Catching Kelce.
Should the two confirm a romance, it would be Swift's return to the dating scene since the end of her six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn, a frequent collaborator with whom she shared the 2020 Grammy Award for Album of the Year for their work on Folklore.
