Did Harry Styles dump Taylor Swift because she’s a prude who never put out?

Here are some photos of Taylor Swift (in Pacific Palisades) and Harry Styles (in London) from earlier this week – I’m sorry I never got around to publishing these pics! I was busy! My apologies. Harry was out and about at a GQ party for Tom Ford, and he seems to be living it up in London since Swifty (allegedly) dumped him on their New Year’s trip. Swifty was spotted in CA going into the studio… which probably means she’s already working on their breakup songs, right? She tweeted yesterday, “Back in the studio… Uh oh…” So what kind of hellish wrath is Swifty about to bring down on Harry? What will she accuse of him? According to Radar, Swifty has a lot to say, because Harry was sex-obsessed and Swifty’s a prude and a good girl (and if you believe that…)

Harry Styles dumped Taylor Swift after growing tired of her “asexual” ways, RadarOnline.com exclusively reports. The 18-year-old One Direction heartthrob, who has earned a reputation as a ladies’ man across the pond, got bored of Taylor, 23, after she hardly ever put out.

“Taylor is so concerned that the public will think she’s a wh*re because she dates around, that she doesn’t put out,” a pal close to the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer told RadarOnline.com. “What she doesn’t get is that the guys keep dumping her because she’s being a prude.”

Another source says the fact that she constantly talked about antiques was another turn-off for the young singer!

“Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested,” a source close to the star revealed. “While it was clear she obviously had a thing for Harry, Taylor didn’t want to put out as often as he would’ve liked. Harry is a young boy, with ladies throwing themselves at him and has had a string of relationships with older women. It’s no secret he’s sexually active and is enjoying his fame at the moment. But Taylor just wasn’t up for it as much as he is. They were sexually incompatible.”

Taylor’s pal tells RadarOnline.com that her public reputation is of utmost importance to her and she doesn’t understand how she’s being perceived.

“Having a clean and wholesome reputation is super important to Taylor,” the source says. “She puts herself in these stupid situations but then honestly can’t understand why she’s getting such a shabby reputation.”

Taylor tried her hardest to please Harry, the source insisted, but their lifestyles were just too different.

“Harry wants to go out to fancy bars and clubs and enjoy being young – but Taylor’s more of a homebody and all she would talk about was antiques!” the insider says. “It drove him crazy, so he gave her the elbow!”

Once again, Taylor was left heartbroken over another failed relationship.

“Taylor was beyond obsessed with Harry and she was over the moon when he agreed to take their relationship public,” the source says. “But he was over it before it ever really even began.”

LOL, she talked about antiques all the time. Harry should be grateful that she didn’t sign him out of school to go antiquing, like she did with Conor Kennedy. As for Swifty being a prude… didn’t that ship sail when she started dating John Mayer? John Mayer is a sex freak. He’s just a freak in general. I’ve never bought that Swifty is really, genuinely prudish or sexually conservative in her real life, in her private life. In fact, that’s one of my big issues with her – she carefully maintains a virginal, prudish, sparkle-pony image while in real life she’s a young woman with a completely normal and healthy sexual appetite. So… I’m not sure if I buy this story. It could just be that Harry is an 18-year-old dude who thinks vadge is magic and he wants tickets to the magic show as often as possible and Swifty was like, “Seriously? I have other stuff to do today. I have to go antiquing.”

    It was a genius PR move. It makes the gay rumours hush up a bit, and it makes everyone lay off Taylor for “being a slut”. (Other people’s label- not mine)

    Cleaning up two images at once- brilliant.

    • Birdie says:

      Gosh, now that I think about it, so true!

    • cbreader says:

      If it’s genius it’s only because our society is sexist. Why is it that “cleaning up” a guys image is to make him seem MORE sex-hungry, and “cleaning up” a woman’s image means to make her more virginal? Why are guys still seen as more successful if they have more sex and girls are shamed for doing the same?

      (Not arguing with your comment. I agree it could be a PR move. I just think its disturbing when we consider WHY it is one.)

      • Erinn says:

        I get what you’re saying. But unfortunately, it’s the way things are. I’m calling it ‘cleaning up’ because there’s so many gay rumors which unfortunately hurts his brand in some aspects. It shouldn’t, but it does. When you’re pandering to teenaged and pre-teen girls, you have to seem like you’re somehow a dating option for them. They have to believe that there is somehow a chance for them to date Harry. And by pushing that he dumped Taylor for that reason, it makes him seem ‘super hetero’ or some none-sense like that.

      • Rachel says:

        I actually don’t think that’s true anymore. If you want to succeed in business, it’s practically essential for men to have wives and children because people prefer family men as leaders – it softens their image. This in and of itself is rather sexist though because if it were a woman, a family would be thought of more as a burden and they would be favored less than their childless counterparts.

        I wonder when sexual double standards will end because though it’s understandable from an evolutionary standpoint, it holds no water in today’s society. But, with that said, I’m tired of the word “slut-shaming” and the women who are up in arms over it – assuming anyone who dislikes sluts is a woman hater. How sexist!!! Why does a slut HAVE to be a woman? Just because in one instance people are judging a woman’s sexual escapades doesn’t mean they wouldn’t judge a man by the same standards. In this instance, from a PR perspective, lots of sex is just considered to be the lesser evil (compared to being gay); it’s not that it’s necessarily good. …Sad all around, methinks.

    • Eleonor says:

      I was thinking to a Pr move, from Swifty’s side. But you’re right.

    • Dinah says:

      That was my first thought, too.

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, Erinn, this does seem to be a classic example of both Swifty and Harry protecting their individual “brands”. Harry’s brand = young, single, over-sexed hetrosexual male and Swifty’s brand = young, single, virginal hetrosexual female. I don’t really care who’s gay or who’s not or whatever but this does seem to be a matter of branding.

    • Amy625 says:

      I don’t think this story is brilliant at all. It’s absolutely ridiculous to claim that Taylor is practically a virgin. I don’t think she’s a slut or deserves to be called one but she’s been going on trips with Harry and staying at each others homes and hotels. I have a hard time believing that they only hold hands.

    • MyCatLovesTV says:

      That’s exactly what I thought, too. The title of “slut” is swirling around Taylor (also not my title….she’s young, gorgeous and if she doesn’t enjoy a healthy sex life now, when?) and Taylor can’t deal with that. We’ve all heard and read blinds about Harry being less than a ladies man and more of a man’s man (wink, wink). So call in the PR Teams! What she doesn’t seem to understand is that everybody over the age of fifteen knows John Mayer does it all and does it all in the most nasty way possible. She turned her virgin card in at the doorway to his bedroom or bathroom, wherever. I would respect her more if she were honest about being a healthy young woman who enjoys being a healthy young woman and that means … oh yeah … SEX! Hypocrisy is uncool.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Erinn – You nailed it.
      But this whole ‘relationship’ was a PR stunt to start with anyway.

  2. Cherry says:

    Sorry, I had to stop reading because I was laughing so hard when I read ‘The 18-year-old (…) has earned a reputation as a ladies’ man’.

  3. andrea says:

    This has got to be one of the more ridiculous PR spin jobs I’ve seen in a while. But I suppose many of Swifty’s little fangirls will eat it up anyway.

  4. aims says:

    So is that her plan? Date as many guys as you can, with out any down time in between, but don’t put out? So its ok to be obsessive, needy, suffocating serial dater, as long as you don’t give him your goods? Otherwise that just, makes you a slut. Is that her logic?

  5. Dani says:

    The last thing I wanted was visions of them having sex. Ugh.

    Also, what’s with the socks in the last picture? Can’t you just wear boots?

  6. mia girl says:

    What a juxtaposition from the KStew story posted yesterday.

    Here are two famous young women, the same age, with a similar aged fan-base, pushing completely different public images. One can’t get enough sex, the other doesn’t want any. It’s fascinating.

    • Bad Irene says:

      Yep it is fascinating. There is a really good book called “The Purity Myth” that is basically calling out society about its attitudes towards young women saying that the options seem to be oversexed or purity ring type chastity, but either way the message is the same- womens only value to society is what is between their legs.

    • Cherry says:

      Nicely put point, ladies. It reminds me of Ariel Levy’s comments about 10 years ago about the two biggest selling female singers at the time, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson. Both girls were famous for two things: their sexually charged lyrics and scantily-clad dancing and posing, and the fact that they (said they) were virgins. We’re still being fed really f***ed-up, ambiguous ideas about female sexuality.

    • Julio Jimenez says:

      Our society is very hypocritical. We sell everything with sex and then we act like dignified puritanical nuns, especially when it comes to females. I believe that women are entitled to sex just like men are. Why not? I am not saying they should go out and make sex tapes or something like that either.

  7. aang says:

    he looks soooo young. who finds him attractive? i mean besides my 12 yo daughter?

  8. Rachel says:

    If it is true, good for her! They dated for five seconds for the love of Trojans. She’s not required to jump into bed with him after a couple of dates.

    However, I still want to sit her down and have a chat with her. An intervention. Maybe over milkshakes: Taylor, sweetie, you are 23 years old. This is not middle school. You do not throw yourself into “serious” relationships with a guy after a few dates then break it off two weeks later when you realize you didn’t know anything about each other and don’t even really like each other. Grow the f*** up and stop dating all these immature boys. Take some time. Learn to stand on your own two feet. Get to know yourself better and stop wrapping up your identity in being with someone else. Once you realize you don’t need a man, then maybe you’ll actually be ready for a real relationship. xoxo

    I’d be like a freaking fairy godmother.

  9. RobN says:

    Never, ever, date anybody who uses the expression “putting out”. Ever.

  10. brin says:

    We are never never never gonna bang together!

  11. Gaby says:

    I really can’t stand her, but I have to say she looks very cute in that dress, and the hair doesn’t look like a wig

  12. marie says:

    I have a feeling that he never, ever, ever tried to put it in..

  13. epiphany says:

    Okay, let’s assume for the sake of argument they really were a couple, and Swifty is a prude who refused to sleep with him – they were going out for what, a month? Is that so long to wait to sleep with someone you’re dating? As an old married woman, I’m out of the loop in this stuff, but I’m pretty certain hubby and I dated for at least that long before anything monumental happened, and that was only 8 years ago. Have things changed that much that sex on the first date is now considered standard?

    • OhDear says:

      I think it’s the mentality that two people need to be hot & heavy for each other in the early stages of the relationship. Perhaps not on the first date, but it seems like people get weirded out if there’s no nookie by the 5th date or so.

    • Jayna says:

      The quote from the friend was, she “hardly ever” put out. She was having sex with him, not waiting on the sex part of the relationship like you’re talking about. She just wasn’t interested in sex very often. Big difference than waiting until you know them better or are ready.

  14. Bad Irene says:

    she judges other young women with lines like “she’s known for what she does on the mattress” while acting like she’s all sparkle ponies and innocence. Taylor get your freak on if you want with as many guys as you want, but don’t be a hypocrite about it please.

  15. lilred1 says:

    Due to the fact that I do not know how often they have sex,I base my opinion of her on the number of boyfriends she has had in a very short amount of time…that makes her a slut not the amount of sex she has.

  16. Jayna says:

    She has been screwing him, just not as often as he would like. I would say she uses sex to get the guys and then shows her true colors, just not that sexual for someone of her age and in a new relationship. Why is she being patted on the back for hooking up with someone and because her sexual desire is low she’s a saint and good for her compared to wanting to have sex with her boyfriend a lot instead of apparently sex here or there. She’s still having sex with the guy. I think she hooks up with these guys for publicity. She liked the junior in high school because she could really act like a high-schooler, not a real relationship.

  17. Kolby says:

    He looks twelve (and a young twelve, at that) and she needs to stop shopping at The Limited, Too.

  18. sirsnarksalot says:

    I knwo alot of people can’t stand this girl but I really have a soft spot for her. I think she is a good role model (better than Rhianna and Katy Perry) in that she doesn’t dress like a whore, got rich off her own talents and generally seems to be pretty positive. And I feel like my 20 year old self would really relate to her. I was an idiot falling madly in love every time back then and the men (boys) back then were just cads looking for easy tail and quick to move on. So say what you will, and the press stories are probably all fiction, but I like this chick and I hope she keeps making money doing what she does best. And if I could date a bunch of pretty boys at that age I would have too…nothing wrong with playing the field, Taylor.

  19. Maria says:

    it was the other way round, harry hiding in the basement to not be devoured by taylors all demanding biscuit.

  20. Hope says:

    They’re sexually incompatible because homeboy is GAY! For the love of all that is holy, this whole article is just pushing their respective images on the public; Harry as the hot, young, virile, *straight* boy bander who is too hot to be held down and Tay-tay as the sweet, virginal nymph, who is in love with love but without any of that icky sex stuff. Bitch, please! This girl dated Jake G and John Mayer. I doubt either of them would have spent any amount of time with her whatsoever if she hadn’t spread ‘em, and frequently.

    And Taylor likes manly men. I think she made an exception for Conor Kennedy because she has that weird obsession with being American royalty and saw him as her golden ticket. And I still don’t think they’re done. She’s going to bide her time, wait him out. Then, in 8-10 years after having a few more short flings with the boy she’ll set her talons in for real, and they might just get engaged.

    But anywho, yeah. I call all sorts of shenanigans on this story.

  21. Izzy says:

    Her dating history doesn’t make me think she’s a whore. It makes me think she is batsh!t crazy when it comes to men, and has horrible taste in men (well, boys, who are we kidding?) to boot.

  22. handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

    Didn’t she just put an album out? Why would she be recording again so soon?

  23. don'tremember says:

    This is what bugs me about celebrities like Taylor, Jen Aniston and to an extent Jennifer Lawerence.

    Its clear that Once you start paying attention to them it’s clear they are very strategic, cunning and calculated about their brand but yet their image is always basic overly girly and simple minded drivel. Their male counterparts never have to hide their drive and astuteness; Whereas, Taylor must play into the virginal, naïve GIRL; when it’s clear that Taylor is a formidable business Woman.
    Taylor swift knows what she’s what’s up when she leave not so veiled hints about past boyfriends.

  24. Reece says:

    Off the title alone: Ppfffbbt! Prudes don’t burn guys like that. Not calling her any names, I’m just sayin’.

  25. Sarah says:

    Great. Now all the young girls that look up to these kids are going to put out so their boyfriends don’t think of them as ‘prudes’ …this chick can do nothing but lead her fans down a path of destruction. SMH

  26. vvy says:

    That was a quick PR thing. There was a blurb on Blind Gossip about it. She thought it would be fun for the two of them to get together because they were both so popular, she thought it would make the fans go insane. I guess she got sick of it kinda fast…or she told him it would be a quick fun thing to do.

  27. Sara says:

    He is not even cute and I think the song I knew you were trouble fits perfectly so no need to write a new one about him

  28. KellyinSeattle says:

    Taylor Swift’s sex life..as exciting as a bowl of Corn Flake w/t enough milk.

  29. Mew says:

    Yeah right, as if the amount of sex had with a boyfriend was what made a girl a wh*re, not the amount of boyfriends she walked through in a week. Other use less socks, but I guess that’s where she gets her product – she’s probably never even interested in these boys, just has some fun, plays them, just to get lyrics to a next song.

  30. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Oh please the real issue here is that her marginal talent was tolerable in the beginning but she has become a fake plastic corporate gimmick, fake showmances, fake music, fake emotions – look at the calculated way her latest piece of drivel was marketed – I’ll take Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison over this simpering nitwit any day; that people buy into this is an example of what happens when the distinction between authenticity and fakery is lost.
    Sirsnarkalot, her father was a rich wall streeter She had help plenty of it.

    • scarlett says:

      I agree with this completely. She has become a brand and she has some very shrewd people on her team. She’s not a simple country girl BTW, she grew up fairly wealthy in Pennsylvania. She had a lot of help getting herself where she is today. This girl never struggled a day in her career. The cards were pretty much in her favor from the day she was born. I don’t by this poor girl victim. She knows exactly what she is doing.

  31. liz_bee says:

    Her style bugs me so much lately. It’s like she grabs every outfit off an Anthropologie mannequin. She’s so concerned with projecting a certain image. Just be yourself!

  32. MerryHappy says:

    besides the pr clean-up for both sides, and besides the blind item that was posted yesterday that made me sad,
    maybe its swift’s birth control pill!
    Its making her sexually disinterested, attracted to PYT’s (the estrogen boosts the attraction to more feminine features) and act emotional easily.

  33. Twez says:

    Maybe she just got weirded out because he looks like John Mayer’s son.

  34. Asdfg says:

    I don’t believe she’s a prude! No way! LMAO!

  35. Amanda says:

    I this this story is a bunch of BS.

  36. Gemini08 says:

    So Taylor’s PR is leaking stories to again paint her as the good girl- despite all evidence to the contrary.

  37. Meganne says:

    I actually like Taylor. She doesn’t seem as vain as other celebrities (Kim Kardashian cough cough) I can identify more with a girl antiquing and posting pictures of her cat than 80000 pics of herself all the time!

  38. Chelley says:

    None of this surprises me. I never thought Harry was really that interested in Taylor (and no, it’s not because he’s gay. He’s interested in older women, not the same sex). He probably thought that they would have a fun relationship where they would go out all the time and have sex, but then when he realized that she takes relationships very seriously and doesn’t care for sex that much, he ended it. Oh well.

  39. Lisa says:

    What does a 23 year old woman see in these 18 year old boys? Something is way off.

  40. Jill says:

    Yeah she’s a prude…..RIIIIIGHT! *side eye*

  41. Jill says:

    And whatever she is trying to put out is not going to work. She knows what folks are saying about her. She is a serial dating in the industry and I am sure she puts out just fine.
