Much has been made of Taylor Swift’s game (or lack thereof), but I have to admit something: I’m consistently impressed and amused by her ability to get her new boyfriends to pose for candid photo ops. She got Jake Gyllenhaal to pose with her a few weeks into the beginning of their relationship, I think Swifty posed with Cory Monteith on, like, their first date, and her relationship with Conor Kennedy was FULL of early photo-ops in Hyannis Port. Now here she is with Harry Styles, only a few weeks into a new relationship and already they’re posing together in Central Park. This photo-op feels kind of Gylenhaal-esque. But she’s added a new twist! A BABY!! According to Pacific Coast News, the baby (a girl named Lux) belongs to Harry’s stylist and friend Lou Teasdale. It was nice of Lou to lend Lux to Swifty for a happy couple photo op.
Less than 24 hours after Taylor Swift performed during KIIS-FM’s Jingle Ball at the Nokia Theatre in L.A, the country music superstar flew to New York City to spend time with One Direction’s Harry Styles.
After flirting on the X Factor set in mid-November, the musicians have been hoping to spend more time together — and they finally got their chance Dec. 2. Joined by a few pals, Swift, 22, and Styles, 18, were all smiles while visiting the Central Park Zoo.
Shortly after they were spotted in the Big Apple, fans began sharing pictures of the two stars on Twitter. “Just saw Taylor Swift,” one wrote. “Holy crap!”
Swift split with high school senior Conor Kennedy, 18, in October. “She doesn’t want to be single,” a source recently told Us Weekly.
Styles — who named Swift as his celebrity crush in the November issue of Seventeen! — isn’t the only One Direction member who’s off the market: Louis Tomlinson, 20, is romancing college student Eleanor Calder, 20, while Zayn Malik, 19, is seeing Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, 19.
How long are we giving this relationship? Am I the only one holding out hope that Swifty and Conor reunite briefly over Christmas when he’s on holiday from his prep school? Which means… this could end up a love triangle between Swifty, an English boy and a Kennedy boy. I hope they make it a drinking contest for her heart.
I’m also including a couple of photos of Swifty at the KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in LA over the weekend – she wore the striped dress on the red carpet & the shorts when she performed. Those shorts are not cute.
