Hailee Steinfeld revealed she does not spend that much time with Taylor Swift. Another authenticity problem for Taylor?

Hailee Steinfeld's recent revelation (in a magazine interview) that she doesn't actually spend that much time together with Taylor Swift has apparently given the anti-Swifties another piece of 'evidence' about Taylor being 'fake'.

But let's look at this closer. People do have lives to live and things to do, and you wouldn't expect someone as busy as Taylor Swift to be able to spend time with her friends every day, right?

Perhaps the expectation that Taylor and her team have to see each other almost every week or so comes from a very teenage-centered perspective. You know, in high school people meet every day, and hang out with their friends every day. But real life isn't school, and when there's work to do, people often only see their friends once every several months, if they are even lucky enough for this. It's one of the main reasons some extraverted people start to feel 'lonely' in their mid to late twenties, and a major factor for the start of a quarter life crisis. (In fact, 'unpopular kids' in school should be happy knowing the fact that by 25 almost everyone ends up with only a few 'real' friends who they don't see very often).

So people have been making something out of nothing again. But that isn't surprising, right?
