The country singer apparently has a good sense of humour but the ongoing public jibes are beginning to take a toll on her emotionally.
A source told Radar Online: "At first Taylor just thought it was funny how much interest people had in her love life and she went along with it.
"But now she's the butt of jokes on Saturday Night Live, in the tabloids and on the late night shows. She laughed it off, but the jokes made about her at the Golden Globes got under her skin."

Swift has dated famous men including John Mayer, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas, going on to write songs about many of her breakups.
The 23-year-old has now become known for jumping from one relationship to another and using the experiences as material for her albums.

The insider said: "The jokes being made about her love life embarrass her, but it's finally hit home with Taylor.
"She really wants to make an effort to slow down and not jump from boyfriend to boyfriend. In a weird way all the negative press has really opened her eyes and will be good for her!"
