Taylor Swift stepped out in NYC yesterday in a letterman jacket and short shorts. She's in the Big Apple doing press for her upcoming album, Red, after spending much of the Summer with her 18-year-old boyfriend Conor Kennedy. Twenty-two-year-old Taylor's talking up the record's first single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," and prepping to hit the stage at Thursday's MTV Video Music Awards. This afternoon, Taylor tweeted, "VMA rehearsals every day this week, starting today!" Thursday's also a big day for Taylor and Conor since he'll report back for his final year at boarding school in Massachusetts.
