Taylor Swift & Harry Styles made out in public & “he’s really protective of her”

These are some new photos of Taylor Swift and Harry Styles last night in NYC. They went out to dinner with Dianna Agron, Emma Stone and lots of other people, and when Harry and Swifty left the restaurant together, they were pretty much swarmed. They were holding hands at one point, but we don’t have those pics – you can see them here. I’ve barely paid attention to the rumors that Harry might be gay and Swifty might be his beard… but really? Are there people who really think that? I think Swifty might have done some bearding in the past, but I don’t think that’s the case with Harry. I think they’re hittin’ it. And I think it’s going to be a mess too.

Their romance is heating up! New couple Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles stepped out at New York’s Crosby Hotel on Thursday night to celebrate a friend’s birthday – and get in a little PDA of their own.

Joined by Dianna Agron, Emma Stone and about a dozen guests, Swift, 22, dressed demurely in black, and Styles, 18, watched as a cake was served and helped to sing along to “Happy Birthday” at the hotel’s Crosby Bar.

“Taylor and Harry [were] being very smoochie,” a source at the party told PEOPLE. “They definitely [looked] like a couple.”

According to the source, Swift (who is up for three Grammys) and Styles held hands and he seemed “really protective of her” and kept his arm around her during the party.

They shared plenty of kisses, too, and didn’t seem to mind if anyone saw. Says the source: “They’re not trying to hide it. The bar was packed.”

Their outing marks a string of get-togethers in New York City over the past week.

On Sunday they visited the Central Park Zoo together. And on Monday, Swift attended a Madison Square Garden show afterparty at the Hudson Hotel for Styles’ band, One Direction, where the couple joined for a karaoke duet of a Backstreet Boys song. Swift later sang a One Direction tune, before the couple returned to her hotel around 4 a.m.

[From People]

Yeah… public makeouts and he’s super-protective of his fragile, girly-girl girlfriend because he realizes that she’s a delicate princess? Oh, I’m sure Swifty is eating this up! Next he’ll buy her a pony or something. No, what’s next is that Swifty is going to start looking for homes in London and there will be reports about how she’s “sure” Harry is the One and how she wants to have half-English babies and by then the romance will be one month old and he’ll dump her.

Also – Swifty covers the new issue of Cosmo UK, but I think the entire thing is a reprint from the American edition of Cosmo. Just FYI, in case you were like “Why isn’t Kaiser providing me with up-to-date Swifty news?!?” It’s old news!

    somebody please get this girl a vibrator…she seems to go from bf to bf with the frequency of a ham radio.

    You know what holding hands leads to . . .


    • Bitca says:

      Doubt the Harry/Gay rumor—where did that come from? Just a supposition, but any Taylor-as-Habitual-Beard assumptions probably come from her time w Gyllenhal.

      She seems to love/need to be a Girlfriend, but has been sexually AND emotionally immature for far too long (I’ve known Mayer-types who get off on “broadening a girl’s experience”—small wonder that affair lasted 5 minutes—& probably set her back a good deal).

      But despite being younger, boy-band Harry has been around the block, done time with older & same-age women, & lacks the Mayer ick-factor. Both of them
      may genuinely enjoy this.

      Being the ages they are (young!), they’ll surely break up soon enough, but he seems a proper fit in terms of maturity, & will make for a nice song afterward.

      Not sure why anyone might imply she’s a slut; after years of living in a bubble, my sense is this girl missed out on her high school years & is merely living them out a bit later than usual.

  3. Bowers says:

    I think he’ll break her heart. Again. Again. Again.

  4. moptop says:

    Wow. Here we go again with the high school age boys.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      Didn’t she make out w/ Conor in public,too? I was at the doctor’s yesterday and they had an old tabloid w/ an article about how in love they are. That was a quick rebound! She seems the type to want to wear a boyfriend’s letterman’s jacket, or anything that belongs to her “love”..maybe a lock of hair..she seems like she never shows any emotion except the makeout game. I never see her laughing. It’s getting old.
      Maybe when they break up, Harry can hook up w/ Demi M. and they could have a makeout fest.

  5. jess says:

    Harry looks like hes 12. I dont get her obsession with dating guys who are barely legal. I feel like she refuses to date guys her own age or older (who dont have gay rumors surrounding them *coughjakejoecough*)because she knows that 18 year olds arent looking for a steady relationship. I dont get her at all.

    • Apples says:

      And yet, this is the same girl who dated John Mayer?!
      I can’t get a read on this girl’s taste at all.

      • Eleonor says:

        I don’t think John Mayer is more mature than these 18something boys she goes for.

      • Meredith says:

        Her “taste” is based on fake dating famous guys who are on the radar of her tween fan base or who otherwise can get her on magazines or celebrity web sites. No more, no less. I think she’s a fame-ho more than she is any other type of ho. It’s all business for Taylor.

      • emmie_a says:

        You’ve got it Meredith. It’s all a game to her & she plays it well.

      • gg says:

        I think she is a diehard romantic and those don’t work in real life very well. So she dated a few older lotharios when she was in her late teens and got run over like dog-doo by a dumptruck. So she then lowered her sights and looked at a couple of cute youngsters that hopefully had not acquired enough game to screw her over. She dates these two particular guys because she thinks they’re safe. But she’s wrong about Styles. He developed hardcore game awhile back after getting hit on horny late-30s-aged women. Will Harry be bored with her soon – stay tuned. I do not think she dates anybody “just for the publicity”. A) she doesn’t need it; and B) she’s too naive to pull anything like that off. She’s just chasing rainbow ponies at the moment. However, if things keep up like they have been, she’s going to be one ball-choppin man-hatin jaded beehatch in a few years.

    • gg says:

      Yeah, but like who? I can’t think of anybody her age I think is suitable really. And she’s not terribly mature in the behavior department.

      Anyway I think these two would have outrageously good looking children. But he’s going to smash her heart into a million little pieces of la-la-la. And she’s stuck wearing flats and slouching for the duration.

  6. marie says:

    they should contain their love to behind the bleachers.. do kids still do that, man I feel old..

    and you know, I never know if someone is bearding or not, are there bearding signs to look out for? should all hair growth come with a warning “fake hair might be hazardous to your health, create crappy heartbreak songs”… wait, what were we talking about?

  7. Dani says:

    I can’t wait till he dumps her and then blasts her/writes a song about her like she does to every ex.

  8. Quinn says:

    Geesh. I guess she buys the beer.

  9. Jane says:

    You know…young people date around sometimes…but I feel people don’t let TS get away with it because each time she acts like she’s looking for a *husband*…like a child playing house.

  10. Meaghan says:

    I read on some site that she started looking for London homes a few weeks ago!!! It was right after the X-factor hook-up.

  11. HotPockets says:

    Here is something to ponder.

    I can’t think of anyone Ke$ha has dated/ had sex with, but I can think of 10 boys Taylor has, that doesn’t make sense?

  12. Skins says:

    Isn’t it time she started dating men instead of boys?

  13. original almond says:

    Ah yes, the sign of a love meant to last a lifetime: the “feeling protective of her” kitschy tag. The go-to descriptor for every vapid, speedy and shallow true love that ever did love. *barfs

  14. Anna-fo-Fanna says:

    Screw Harry and Swifty, who’s the hottie in the black bubble jacket?!? Rowr!

  15. Thea says:

    I’m really not a fan of Harry, but cant he find someone better than trashy Swifty? I really do dislike this girl! Seems like she’s just using people. Wonder what Harry gets out of it. Loads of money? Can’t do much for his fanbase though.

  16. flutters says:

    Taylor dating a 17 turned 18 year old high school junior who had recently lost his mother after she was openly fascinated with his famous family name was creepy.

    Taylor dating an 18 year old boy bander who gets around and has a huge hyperventilating fanbase of his own is perfection.

    It’s perfection because they’re both on the same page as far as this generating a PR frenzy and them milking it for all its worth. Real attraction or not, they’re working it and their fanbases and the tabloid media are all over it. They’ve both signed on to the idea that their personal lives are part of the package they put out there for entertainment purposes and so, this pairing is entertaining.

    Do I support the idea that celebs should sell out their personal lives for entertainment purposes? Of course not! In young people especially I think it’s a recipe for bad things as far as your emotional growth. But if you’re going to do it, Taylor is showing everybody how it’s done.

    • Abby says:

      Good call. It could be a Britney/Justin Timberlake situation… two huge stars. Who knows! I’m surprised she didn’t get back with Conor before that Kennedy award thing. Proved me wrong!

    • Suzy says:

      Exactly-it’s for PR purposes only. They might fancy each other but they also both have new albums, tours & merchandise to sell (there’s an entire store devoted to 1D merch in NYC). The more they are seen together, the more people talk about them, the more stuff they sell, the more money they make. Easy peasy.

    • Meredith says:

      Total PR love! Check out the following on http://www.blindgossip.com – “They Won’t Make It To Valentine’s Day”. Sorry, I don’t know how to link it.

      • Tammy says:

        It’s Blind Gossip, though. They always, always put together completely obvious ‘blinds’ that essentially just repeat what people are guessing on boards like this one. I’d believe it were legit insider knowledge if they ever called something *before* it happened.

        Taylor and Harry may be fake, but Blind Gossip doesn’t know any more than we do. I wonder if Blind Gossip will keep this going every time Harry and Taylor are pictured in public together? Explain *afterwards* why said outing was fake and planned? They did it for the Beyonce fake pregnancy story, always updating with something new, even if it contradicted what they had said before.

  17. dorothy says:

    Another day, another new boy with Swifty. Desperate anyone?

  18. Alarmjaguar says:

    Seriously, he is like 12 — looks like he just got out of his braces!

  19. LaTiDa says:

    This one could really backfire on Swifty though. Her fan base and One Direction’s are pretty much the same and for the first time she is messing with someone who her female fans actually are aware of/care about. She needs to be careful when writing songs about him because these girls will not take kindly to him being trashed.

    • bbybt says:

      Have you searched “harry styles tumblr” or “haylor tumblr?” They are out for her blood man. All of those girls are turning on her and making the exact same comments and observations that people here are making. Basically that she constantly needs a guy and then will write nasty songs about him. I think it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out for her. As for him, I find it harder to believe he’s not gay now. From what I can tell about the boys’ from 1D’s personalities, I would have put Harry with someone more sarcastic, dark(er), and different; not all “innocent,” sweet, and twee. He seemed better matched with Cara Delevingne. She seems weird and wears a tank top by dimepiece that says, ‘Ain’t no wifey’

    • Tammy says:

      “…for the first time she is messing with someone who her female fans actually are aware of/care about.”

      I think you’re forgetting Joe Jonas. The Jonas Bros were the One Direction of five years ago. The hysteria a boyband generates is short-lived. By the time Swift’s next album is released in 1-2 years, these girls may not care about One Direction anymore.

  20. BooBooLaRue says:

    Hilarious! Her expression is the cat that ate the birdie!

  21. Talie says:

    It’s a definite downgrade for her to go from grown-men with stature like Jake G and John Mayer to a teenage boybander. I wonder if her PR was getting turned down left and right because of her indiscreet nature. Harry, himself, seems to enjoy drama as well.

  22. rachel says:

    Cant say much of her taste but harry’s voice is really good

  23. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Oh for GOd’s sake does this gimmick have an authentic bone in her body (no pun intended), Please everything is done for PR and cd sales, Here’s a radical thought – why not have a discreet relationship, OH, right, that won’t help sell crappy teeny bopper drivel.

    • Suzy says:

      Exactly. If they wanted to keep it a “secret” they could. But instead they parade around in front of the paps & Harry gets photographed leaving Swifty’s hotel 3 days in a row.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      + 1000000%.

      This is a PR ‘relationship’ and nothing else. This is all about keep them in the news to sell their crap.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I would agree, BUT….the only thing preventing me from calling this a strictly PR move is that 2 of her BFFs were at the dinner…Emma Stone and Dianna Agron are 2 of her BFFs…just wonder why she would have a fake bf hang out with her closest friends? That would just be taking it to another level…maybe PR for him, but do not see how this would be helping her image..just think maybe the Connor thing threw her way off and she is just trying to get back at him

  24. Alana Fajina says:

    Idk who this Harry kid is [Potter?] but alls I’m thinkin is; Oh great, Annnnnnnnother bf. I just hope above everything else, this young lady is using protection because contrary to popular belief, glitter and ponies do Not keep STD’s away. nor babies, so.. Wrap It Up Swifty!!!

  25. judyjudy says:

    Oh! I want to make out in public, too! But alas, I’m in my mid-thirties and no one wants to see “old” people make out on the hood of a car. I miss the public make out days…..

  26. bohemia says:

    i’m 26 and i LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them together! Separately,,, didnt do a thing for me. now im obsessed!
    Never liked the JELENA pairing. too cute. Bland. But i love this. Drama knows its home!and it is guaranteed with Haylor!

  27. Ms Kay says:

    Nah. PR move. Harry has a knack for older women and in the UK he made sensation for having an affair with a married one. Now they are getting big in the US, if he did the same it’d totally throw a shade on the boys band image and both One Direction and Swifty Ts got a golden opportunity to try to make the whole prince/princess of music.

  28. StaCat1 says:

    This girl does EVERYTHING for PR…everything. There is nothing genuine about her. Including this relationship…it’s fake. Just like her.

  29. Mo says:

    Taylor Swift and Harry make a great couple. People just need to stop with the rumors and leave there romance alone.

    Girls Gone UGGs!

  30. V. says:

    OKay here’s the thing, and it is clear as day. Taylor was a pure and unjaded little southern belle at first… but then sh ewas sucked into the entertainment machine and terrible things happened to her, namely losing her virginity haphazardly to John Mayer. That song she wrote about him is truly heartbreaking and really she hasn’t been the same since. I thik she stays with the young guys becuase she is scared and they are safe so to speak becuase they don’t have the “game” that guys like Mayer have. She go in over her head with that one. As for Jake he is a decent guy, a nice guy who was comin goff being dumped by Reese, Taylor probably thought he was going to be the real deal, but he broke her heart too, and he didn’t mean to, he was just already heartbroken himself. So anyway the girl needs a loving adult to sit her down and tell her take a break be alone, take stalk and stop beating yourself up becuase you gave your V-card to a douche bag, it could have happened to anyone and in fact it has!

  31. M says:

    I smell PR. Taylor has never been dating guys this openly before, Jake was the only guy she was affectionate with. These two have been very public and that doesnt seem like either of their style so Im going to say that this isnt real.

  32. Shy says:

    There is too much of this Harry Styles lately. He is always the one who gives more interviews and stuff. At first I thought that he is like more talented then others, has better voice and is leading man in One Direction. But then you see clips and he is just one of the five members. He doesn’t have some super voice. He is just more memorable from other four. With his silly hair cut and face.

    And now this dating with Taylor Swift. I suspect that he thinks that he is Justin Timberlake of One Direction and will be that stupid one who will leave group for solo and then vanish.

  33. Sean says:

    How much do you think she makes for beard duty?

  34. erika says:

    she dresses like my nephew’s 4th grade teacher….seriously! if she’s so ‘romanced’ up where’s her sexiness? if i’m making out left n right w/ my man i’m not dressed in a wool camel coat and plaid scarf! NOR PLATINUM BLACK MARY JANES w/ freaking pantyhose!

    “Harry baby….hmmmm, sit and watch me take of my pantyhose, inch by inch, all the way from the control top to the reinforced toes….yah….”

  35. Sarah says:

    Blind Gossip has an item “They Won’t make it to Valentines Day” with hints like “never ever,” and the graphic being her heart hands thing, and of course the Valentines Day reference to that craptacular movie she was in.

    It’s all a PR thing. Check it out Kaiser!

  36. Paulyp says:

    There is a blind gossip item that appeared today proving that the relationship is fake; here is the link:http://blindgossip.com/?p=48985&cpage=2#comments. It basically says that it is a short PR stunt and will over before Valentine’s day.

  37. Michelle says:

    Why do I love this new couple so much? I’m obsessed! This promises to be excellent drama. I just hope they last for awhile. (And break up. And get back together. Even if they say never, ever…) Come on… P.R. genius. But I also believe it. The two make sense together. And both love the attention. It’s pure gossip gold. And, hopefully, it really is fun for them, too. Come on… they’re sooooo young. They need to have some kick ass sex and crazy drama-filled affairs. I love it.

  38. Jennifer12 says:

    She is 23 years old- what is up with all the 18 year olds?

  39. LakeMom says:

    I think her emotional development stunted early because her career took off at such an early age.

    If I were her, I’d leave the little boys alone and be grabbing me some of that Mr. Blue Eyes in the upper right hand corner. Don’t know who he is but oh, mama!!!

  40. Sandra says:

    I could leave her at the end of the road and keep driving.

    Seriously, she is the most annoying person ever. She had success waaay to early and is too rich.

    She is scaring a real potential guy that is out there and she seems like its nothing (about writing her breakup songs, which is all of them).I will sit back and wait to see what happens.

    the blind gossip things would be spot on since this happened way too fast. Do the people in hollywood think we are all to blind to this crap?

  41. Velouria says:

    This obviously won’t last and maybe, just maybe her next song will be called “Maybe it’s Me”.

  42. Stay-Cee says:

    I’m surprised she hasn’t dated wilmer valderama :p

  43. lisa2 says:

    I’m not a fan of hers. I don’t trash her. I just find her another example of women that paint themselves as a certain image and the real them is so far from that. She is seen as the wholesome girl looking for love. Virginal, safe. But I really doubt she is taking that virginal stance in relationships with men over the age of 20. It is not happening. I always laugh at the general public that eat that up. They love to paint the wild girl as lose and easy and that she sleeps around. When in fact she is the one that is way more selective. And that girl next door has a revolving door. Just that people are always looking at the wrong entrance.

    I just don’t see what the attraction it.. Unless she is one way with the public and quite freaky behind closed doors. I’m going with freaky.

    She is good though, she goes with lots of guys and is never called a tramp, whore or countless other names thrown at other women that have never been proven to have been with lots of men. She gets to be that girl who is “romantic” searching for love.. then writing songs about it.

    the public is just SMH

  44. Scarlett says:

    This is a PR showmance just in time for the holidays and sell records for both of them. Ever notice how this girl gets embroiled in a showmance every Christmas? Last year it was Jake G, and the year before it was John Mayer. The blind ads on this are spot on. This will be over well before Valentine’s Day.

  45. akashaa01 says:

    They’re obviously together, but I’m not sure they make a good couple though. She has dated almost everyone in Hollywood and always dates out of her age.
