Calvin Harris is ‘pissed & feels betrayed’ over Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston

FFN_DMAC_Harris_Calvin_061516_52093625

Here are some photos of Calvin Harris in LA yesterday, just hours before The Sun published their exclusive photos of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston making out in Rhode Island. While the Hiddlestoners/Dragonflies are iffy about what this means for Tom, make no mistake: Swifty is BALLER. The way she played Calvin Harris is epic. Calvin has no place to go, since he made such a big deal in the press about how he dumped her and she’s clingy and he wasn’t attracted to her. And then she’s all “Oh, here I am making out with one of the hottest actors two seconds after we broke up!” Girl wants everyone to know that she’s got options.

Anyway, there are 20 million stories about Tom and Taylor and the glory that is TIDDLES. A source told E! News (Taylor’s current outlet of choice for strategic leaks):

“Taylor is hanging out with Tom. Nothing serious is going on but she is talking to him. They have been out a few times she really enjoys his company. She is not looking to jump into anything this fast, but will take things as it goes nice and slowly.”

[From E! News]

Swifty’s definition of “nice and slowly” involves a staged photo op by her Rhode Island mansion in which she and Tom absolutely knew they were being photographed? Sure.

As for Calvin Harris, player got played and all of that. A source told E! News that Calvin “just wants her to be happy, they were not a good fit.” Sorry, I couldn’t hear his well-wishes over the sound of Tiddlesbanging? What did he say? Calvin also deleted any and all references to Taylor on his social media as soon as The Sun published their photos, so *someone* still has their ex-girlfriend on Google Alert. And finally, TMZ says that Calvin feels “betrayed.”

Calvin Harris suspected something was up with Taylor Swift weeks before their breakup … and his suspicions were confirmed Wednesday when pics surfaced of Taylor making out with Tom Hiddleston … this according to sources connected to the former couple.

Our sources say Taylor and Calvin were in a “committed relationship,” but he suspected something was up in early May … a month before their breakup. As we reported, at the time of the breakup Calvin posted there was still “a huge amount of love and respect.” Hours after the photos surfaced Wednesday, Calvin deleted the tweet.

We’re told, “He’s pissed and feels betrayed by her.”

Taylor and Tom were out May 2, dancing at the Met Gala … Calvin and Taylor announced their breakup June 2.

[From TMZ]

I’d just like to say one thing to all of those people who yelled at me for suggesting that something was up between Hiddles and Taylor after the Met Gala: SHAME! *rings bell* There was something going on. There was a flirtation. Then there was a breakup. Then there was a staged makeout session in Rhode Island. What’s the next move? Shakespeare sonnets during a lake swim? Face-painting during Taylor’s Fourth of July party? Speaking of, Tom is due in Australia in July to film Thor: Ragnarok. Hm…

    Methinks we’re the ones being played…….

    • LannisterForever says:

      Me too. The timing and staging of the pics is just too obvious.

      • Liv says:

        I don’t care if they faked it, I hope they did! Well played! Hahaha! Everyone was spinning it like she would be sad for the next years and she manages to move on with a famous actor. Hahaha, Calvin Harris!

      • Val says:

        +1000 Liv!

        Calvin tried to play Taylor as the desperate cat lady in the press, and he got SERVED.
        This is Reese Witherspoon Oscar speech level.

      • bondbabe says:

        Like I said in the Hiddleston thread, she let Harris put his side of the story out to the public and then destroyed him without any public comment. A picture is worth a thousand words! Girl is a PR genius.

      • annaloo. says:

        I don’t care either! For some reason, I can’t stand egotistical DJs. I feel in some way, this is a slap against all of them, so says me…

    • mytake says:

      Seriously. Obvious fake romance is obvious. But hey, it’s the 21st century, and “reality relationships” are all part of the entertainment ecosystem. Just like reality TV — we know its fake, but play along anyway.

      • als says:

        Why does it matter if it is staged or not? Staged or not the consequences are the same: she played Harris. She let him get the story out first and then made her move.
        And if this is staged, Taylor just comes out looking a million times better, confirming once again that she is a great strategist.
        So, why does it matter?

      • mytake says:

        Huh? I didn’t say it matters. In fact, I kinda said that exact opposite (e.g., “we play along even though we know it’s fake.”). To state it a different way: “It’s all entertainment, so who cares….”

      • Maria says:

        @als: she does not come out better. the general public mainly thinks she cheated.
        i look at it from a pr stratetic pov and its not good. she was JUSt talking about how important that relationship and Calvin are and posted all those lovey dovey pics on her instagram. there is not consistency in her strategy.
        this also has the potential to backfire.

      • Erinn says:

        Maria -

        The general public has no idea – it’s people in the gossip sphere that know about this stuff. The general public will look at the covers and be like “Oh… that’s the ex-country singer dating the guy from Thor”

      • Hudson Girl says:

        No, I for one don’t think she cheated. It was a few weeks between 3 very busy people- not a few months.

        Also, she barely saw Calvin while they dated she was touring, etc. So, to me this isn’t that quick. I believe in Tiddles. I believe in internet meltdown joy! LOL.

      • bluhare says:

        Erinn, totally agree. CNN has this and she’s kissing “Marvel villain”. Not even his name. Burn!

    • Alex says:

      Yea Tiddles isnt real but kudos to Taylor for keeping it consistent with her stage 5 clinging relationships. I wonder if she’s going to head to set with Tom in two weeks. I wouldn’t put it past her

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Who cares??! The whole thing has produced that glorious headline in The Sun!
      Tinker Taylor snogs a spy!

      I’m dying over that one, I tell you, dying.

  2. Megan says:

    I like the GOT reference. :)

    • Mia V. says:

      I can’t let it pass no longer, Calvin Harris got Loki’d.

      • Zoya says:

        Haha Loki’d !!! Perfect ;)
        I don’t esp care for any of these 3 but all of a sudden I’m finding myself so invested in their drama lol I need to go out more…..but this is so so delicious.

      • Tara says:

        “Bwaaa ha haaaaaaaaa” … what Dracula says when he’s reading really juice gossip:)

        No, really! It’s a legit laugh!!

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Omg, yes!!! Almost as hilarious as the Tinker Taylor snogs a spy bit for me!
      SHAME! *rings bell*

      It’s a thing of beauty.

  3. cyn says:

    Bahahaha!

  4. Maria says:

    its clearly set up. if she wanted to keep it a secret she would have the means to it and would not get photographed like that in such a public place in a time when everyone is speculating about her love life after her break up.

    so i wonder: whats the idea behind this? whats her strategy? new image? why so fast after portraying Calvin as The One on all of her social media? doesnt that make it more obvious? then again, Tommy does not have much time before he shoots his new movie.

    also Hiddelstoms thirst is undeniable now.

    also as much as i hate the usual tabloid puns in headlines, this one is great.

    • Meryl says:

      Right? I don’t understand how this is baller? Wasn’t she literally just saying to Vogue how magical her relationship with Calvin was? She goes from being 100% all in on the fairytale romance with Calvin to this. It seems like typical Taylor to me. Calvin overplayed his hand in thinking she would play the broken hearted angle – which I’m sure she’ll still milk for her next album – but besides her long break from dating, she’s always swung from one relationship to the next fairly quickly. And it typically starts with a staged photo shoot.

    • Naya says:

      Yes. This so badly executed its yielding only questions and memes. I mentioned this in my rumbling post below but is it possible that they were forced into this stupid ass photo shoot? As in, The Sun had something on them, evidence of cheating perhaps, that would have ruined their respective twee images and so they traded that evidence in exchange for the most cringe worthy pap shoot of all time.

      (Remember Sandra Bullock had to do something similar when the tabloids almost compromised her adoption process? She fed them stories and pics of her new beau in exchange for silence.)

      • Maria says:

        do you have a link to what you say about Bullock? im very interested but cant really find something via google.

      • Naya says:

        it went like this; Sandra never confirms or flaunts her bfs. All of a sudden, she not only released a guys name but he participated in some pretty blatant pap photo ops. Her sources began to provide a storyline, how they met, who introduced them, how happy she is etc. Then his entire backstory was released. Meanwhile Sandra moved the little girl into her home as the adoption was processing.

        Once the adoption was finalised she did a big interview to introduce her daughter. In that piece she said that several times her publicist was approached by an outlet saying they were onto her and Sandra had to beg them not to write about the adoption because it would jeopardise the process. From there it was just putting two and two together. The only way to kill a story like that is to provide an alternate story with enhanced access. We had all noted at the time how out of character it was for Sandra to be so blatantly flossing a new bf and as you know he hasn’t been in the news since that time. No paps, no insider quotes, nothing. Its pretty clear she had to whore out her relationship to protect her daughter. These kind of trade offs are common place in Hollywood.

      • M.A.F. says:

        Cheating is NOT the same as trying to adopt a child. So, you cannot compare what Bullock did to whatever this is. Who cares if Taylor cheated on Calvin. We all know that relationship had run its course.

      • Maria says:

        thank you!

    • Intuitive says:

      I could never understand what people see in him, I don’t find him attractive and think his acting is mediocre at best. But these obviously staged photos makes them, and him in particular, look so immature. I mean how old are they!?? He is 35! This is the sort of thing you do when you are 15!!!

      • paranormalgirl says:

        The kissing on the beach is immature? Color me immature then. Unless you mean the staged photo op in and of itself. In which case, yeah, staging photo ops is kind of lame.

      • Kiliki says:

        Agree with ParanormalGirl.

        Also like to comment that Bahahahaha has always annoyed me. Hope I don’t annoy or offend anybody by saying that, but I write Hahahahaha all the time and I cringe when I see the B at the beginning. It sounds mean I guess.

      • Intuitive says:

        Ha ha no, I have nothing against kissing on the beach, I meant the staging of the photos so quickly after she split from Calvin. Kinda ‘look at me, I’ve found someone new already” to score points presumably. If you were really happy you wouldn’t need to advertise it. I’m amazed Hiddleston has gone along with it – he looks an ass.

  5. Goats on the Roof says:

    Adam doesn’t get to feel betrayed. He made sure the press knew it was him who did the dumping, he was no longer attracted to Taylor, and she wanted too much from him too soon. If she’s moved on after all that, good on her.

    • Crumpet says:

      That’s exactly how I feel! I like Taylor – I know most here don’t, but I’m rooting for her. I know she is immature, blah blah blah, but she didn’t exactly get to have your typical upbringing and I think she lived her teenage life a bit late and in the public eye, which made a lot of people side eye her. But as a mom to a tween, I have a soft spot for her, and wish her nothing but the best.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah she’s nowhere near as bad as people around here like to make her out to be. I LOVE Tiddles. People are already getting so damn mad lol.

      • Erinn says:

        I’m with you guys. Most of the hate is sooooo out of proportion. She’s REALLY not all that offensive, nor is she as immature as people make her out to be. I’m tired of people infantilizing her as this little kid. Girl owns properties, she works super hard, she’s been lovely to fans and charities … but around here you’d think she’s going around kicking everyone’s puppies and grandmas.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Totally agree. She’s hard working and likes cats. What’s to hate? I think Tiddles is adorable. So there.

      • Snazzy says:

        Tiddles 4EVA

      • Noname says:

        I like Taylor too. I don’t understand the hate either. I like Tiddles too.

      • Alihar999 says:

        I agree. Good for Taylor. I really didn’t like the ‘i wasn’t attracted to her, there wasn’t any passion, she was clingy, she wanted to get married and I knew she wasn’t the one’ junk that the Calvin team spewed after the breakup. I don’t think any of us know exactly what went down but he kind of deserves to get served.

      • MC2 says:

        I completely agree Crumpet! I don’t think Taylor has done anything particularly bad or wrong. I think she is a good energy out there on the scene & I know parents who are glad their kids are obsessed with Taylor and not other pop stars out there. I have always had respect that she actually writes (or co-writes) her own songs & plays instruments.
        I am rooting for them & for her dating a man who is more mature then the guys of her past.

      • cindy says:

        I like her too. I listen to her when I work out on the elliptical and am only a little ashamed. But this photo beach gazing into the sunset thing…..oh….I dunno, it is giving me the cringes. Than again I hate getting flowers because all I think of is the waste of good money, so maybe I am not one to judge. But he is 35! Couldn’t they have gone to a restaurant or something? This is too much with the coat and the gazing, I can’t. But, as far as Duggar-face Calvin goes, I have no sympathy.

      • minx says:

        Same! I’m not particularly a fan but I don’t get the hate for her. She’s talented, works hard and manages her image. Good for her.

    • lisa2 says:

      I doubt he even cares that much.. but she makes sure everyone knows how she feels when she writes a song about a break up. Something she has done many many times.

      We see lots of celebs that move on before the other party… but they get it for years. I think he may be irritated but if you want out you tend to be fine.

      • Naya says:

        I dont know, deleting her images from his social media and removing the post about how amicable their breakup was seems more than just irritation. Also theres the deleted tweet where he wrote that he was bracing for some fall out. He is either extremely upset or he wants people to think that he is extremely upset.

        Either way, he knows how bad breakups play in the media and how those deletions would be interprated.

      • Eleonor says:

        I don’t know, it could be a pragmatic move: people on the internet are crazy, and some of his follwers could have started trashing Taylor, Tay-Tay fans would have responded and could have turned in a gigantic mess.

      • Kitten says:

        Isn’t that what Calvin does with all his break-ups? The dude is a huge, HUGE baby.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I don’t fault anyone (famous or not) for removing traces of a relationship from social media following a break up.

    • Yes. I don’t follow her but she’s everywhere with her fame. But I love that this Calvin fellow is pissed & feels betrayed after he tells tabloids that he dumped her, he’s not sexually satisfied and she’s clingy. Good for her for the ace she was holding in Hiddleston. Even though I think differently of him now. I think more of her.

      • Cricket says:

        With all the constant breaking updates.. I think the actual ace is the photo being shopped around of Calvin. I’m betting it was TS and her crew that got wind of this photo – it is the reason for the break up – and now it’s being used as a STFU tool for Mr. Wiles to put his tail between his legs and just go off quietly into his EDM sunset. I think he was going to throw the gloves off and started with the removing of all social media stuff and then his ‘about to go down’ thing that he deleted.

        I think TS just gave him a check mate.. and I gotta say, I’m loving it because he deserved it after his comments about the reason the relationship failed.

    • WhatAmIDoingHere? says:

      How do you know , she could have put the stories in the tabloids for all you know, maybe they had an agreement she got to play the one broken hearted when they split

    • claire says:

      Yeah, and I’m not cool about the slut-shaming going on.

      • Cricket says:

        Add me to the team.. there is no place for the slut shaming.. and I’m by far a TS fan.

    • Starkiller says:

      You are not the arbiter of whether or not someone gets to feel betrayed. When I dumped my last boyfriend I had no idea he was cheating on me-but a few weeks later, someone let slip that his alleged “business trips” to another continent had actually been him banging his ex for pretty much the entire time we were together. Guess what? I still felt betrayed. Granted, I did not call People and US Weekly to ensure everyone was aware that I was the dumper rather than the dumpee, but I don’t really see how it’s incompatible that he acted a fool and also feels betrayed now that his cuckolding has come to light.

    • Veronica says:

      He’s honestly just making himself look more the fool. This is the guy who got caught at a massage parlor in the course of their relationship, and we’re supposed to think she’s the villain? Come on. You can’t change the narrative after you already established one.

      There’s nothing to say she cheated in the first place beyond Calvin’s weak insinuations otherwise. There was obvious chemistry at the MET, but that doesn’t mean anything started there. For all we know, she called up Tom in the weeks after the breakup for a rebound ego boost and they clicked. Until he can prove otherwise, I don’t have a problem with this hookup – she has a right to move on at whatever pace she wants.

    • Nan says:

      Yep. He got his “I dumped her moment” with side serving of superiority and now … not so smug.

      Good for her. I hope she has some good fun with Hiddleston.

    • Tara says:

      Exactly. I don’t know how people get CHEATER!! from that.

    • dAsh says:

      This. He made sure to let the public know he dumped her and that she’s clingy and he’s not attracted to her and he’s tired of her. And then BOOM! She’s got a new rebound (fake or not). If that girl was my friend, I’d say go girl! Let him see what he just took for granted and lost.

  6. NewWester says:

    I wonder who Calvin will date next?

  7. LB says:

    I don’t know. I feel a bit bad for him. But then again, I didn’t believe the rumors that he dumped her because she was more famous. I just figured they weren’t compatible, which were the first rumors. Still hurts though when someone moves on quickly (even makes it seem like some overlap occurred…maybe).

    Can’t wait for all the songs this will generate from the both of them.

    • Ohnoohyes says:

      I feel the same way. She’s totally playing the media game to try to put him in a bad light no matter how he ends up reacting. You can’t be saying in awards speeches how amazing and perfect your boyfriend is and be talking about the future, and then purposefully make out with Hiddles less than a few weeks later. I really like Calvin….I think he’s professional and I believe he broke up with her for probably valid reasons…whether it was from spotlight or just not being compatible. I used to like Taylor but this just shows how she really hasn’t grown up.

  8. Talie says:

    I was wondering why she was letting him win the news cycle with his dumping story…now we know why. She had an ace up her sleeve. Bravo, Taylor! That was some slick mastery…

    Plus, Calvin is just so smug, this is hilarious. Every woman he’s with seems to leave him in the worst way.

    • Jess says:

      Yea, I love how Taylor outmaneuvered him here. Ha!

      • Beatrice says:

        Me, too–Calvin is so full of himself. It’s nice that Taylor one-upped him masterfully.

    • kai says:

      You’ve got to admire Swift’s PR game. I’m thinking she outsmarts HIddleston in that regard as well.

      • Megan says:

        Seriously. Either she is a PR genius, or she has the best damn people in the biz. Either way, all I can say is well played, Taylor, well played.

      • Maria says:

        how is it good?? pretty much everywhere even serious newspapers like the guardian are calling her out on her obvious pr relationships.
        other people think she is immature for acting like a highschool girl who wants to get back at her ex.

      • Noname says:

        I think she’s a PR genius.. Calvin Harris deleted her off of his social media.. I’d say he’s acting like he’s in high school.

  9. Squiggisbig says:

    If Calvin is feeling betrayed it is probably because of her going into another pr relationship in a way that makes it look like he was cheated on. Tom you’re better than this!

  10. als says:

    This is the perfect fantasy break-up coming to life.
    You break up with your boyfriend, he starts bad mouthing you, people start expecting to see you crying and looking desperate and Bam – you show up with a hot new piece.
    Wonderful!

    • Naya says:

      You aint lying.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Word. It’s how you fantasize it could’ve gone after … it didn’t. Like showing up to a reunion with the most amazing life. It never happens and if it does, it’s most likely fake but WHAT IF IT’S REAL? I hope this is real. For women everywhere.

    • Sullivan says:

      Yep, it’s pretty perfect. Well done, Taylor.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, now she just needs to run into him at the mall when she and Tom look gorgeous and hot and he’s wearing that outfit from the first picture.

    • Mira says:

      Its the perfect revenge fantasy…..In high school :)

  11. Meee4 says:

    Don’t really know much about Calvin. But even if he did in fact do the dumping or is a jerk, it still has to seriously burn that the ex is already hooked up, even if it’s just her being spiteful.

    He may act all tough, but human emotion is uncontrollable sometimes.

  12. Sixer says:

    Kaiser! You are reaching Sixer-is-being-contrary-again levels of joy, aintcha? Enjoy!

    Poor Calvin. The universe is wreaking revenge cos he chose a silly name. The universe plays a long game, Calvin. Now you know this.

    I cannot stop laughing that grown ass people scrub their social media accounts in tantrum fits.

    • als says:

      LOL, in all fairness how would a social media account look if you left all the info and pics of your past relationships on it?
      I imagine it would be mind-boggling to see everything there, to revisit your own comments from different moments. To actually see how dumb you were in certain moments. A horror show. Not to mention what it would mean to the current partner that would have easy access to your emotional diary.
      In conclusion: people should try not to put their relationships on social media. At least try!
      Old school paper diaries that you can burn or hide are safer.

      • Sixer says:

        I don’t really do “state of my lifestyle” social media posts so I don’t need to worry about this. However, I do go on various opinion rants, which are often half-arsed and wrong. I leave them all up there for the precise purpose of laughing at myself!

      • Miss M says:

        I post nothing on my social media. I said to a friend once thaf I would only post of the husband, but not much.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        I post my political opinions and curate arty things that I really love. Many links to articles I am reading. The closest I come to posting about my personal life would be cute pictures of my cats or of my garden. I avoid memes, and never talk about work or relationships.

    • Kitten says:

      Right, Sixer? So juvenile.

    • LAK says:

      Sixer, love of my life, apart from the baroness and other royal CBers…….i’m here for TIDDLES. That’s all i have😁😃😊

      Not to mention tantrum baby Calvin.

      🖼

    • Sixer says:

      Isn’t he Scottish, Kitten? The Scots are supposed to be dour, not all wanky and babyish. Still, famous people are for laughing at, so at least he’s giving us that!

      LAK – my grandmother actually had a cat called TIDDLES. TIDDLES is the best name evah. If I can’t have JArthy, this level of TIDDLES fakery and nonsense will last me a good long while!

      • Snazzy says:

        TIDDLES THE CAT! Perfection!! OMG be careful Taylor may kidnap it :)

      • Kitten says:

        LOL, Sixer! Tiddles The Cat. YESSS!

      • Sixer says:

        She really, really did have a cat called TIDDLES. It would never go out (we don’t generally have house cats here in Britland) and would only eat raw liver. A tabby.

    • Grey says:

      I am definitely not trying to be contrary, but I was reading some of the comments on his twitter and Instagram last night and Taylor’s fans were leaving some of the most ridiculous statements on there. I would probably delete that stuff too.

  13. HejHej says:

    I have *zero* respect for Tom taking part of this. It might make him more popular but it also shows how hungry he is and that’s not at all attractive.

    • Rhiley says:

      Is appearance on Graham Norton did it for me. He was just so weird and, as Kaiser would say, extra. Ugh. When it was over I was like how can anyone stand this guy for longer than five minutes. He isn’t that cute either. He dresses nicely, I will give him that, but he looks like the kid for Mad Magazine.

    • Lisa says:

      did he know tho? He’s always quiet – maybe she set him up or he did for the shits and giggles!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Lisa, I have no doubt that photo op was planned with the help of both their publicists. He wasn’t “caught” any more than he was caught in London with Lizzy Olsen last year. He knows how to get his column inches.

      • cyn says:

        Luke followed Tay Tay’s publicist this morning. Tom knows exactly what he is doing. Whether or not it will get him what he wants (Bond) we must wait to see. Personally I think he killed his chances with this stunt. No way he is seen as devastatingly suave after this. He is being dragged everywhere including CNN and Huffpost. One poster on another site noted that this gives him more name recognition but at what cost. He will now be known either as her boyfriend or the idiot in the staged pics. Once it’s over he will be either ridiculed like Cavill after Cuoco or as an older man who took advantage of Taylor’s broken heart. He isn’t ready for this and neither is Luke. Tay and her people are going to chew them up and spit them out. Funnily I cannot find it in my heart to feel bad for him. I’m just over here making popcorn and laughing cause you know it is not in Calvin’s nature you let this go. Does that make me a bad person?

      • NUTBALLS says:

        cyn, you’re not bad, just observant.

        While they may truly have the hots for each other, make no mistake — PR is driving this relationship and their individual agendas are navigating in the passenger seat.

        I don’t know anything about her PR, but with the rep she has of being clingy, needy for romance and bouncing from one guy to the next like a ping-pong ball, I’d say they’re not THAT great at making her look good.

      • Kiliki says:

        No Cyn, you’re not a bad person at all! I agree with everything you wrote re laughing at him having his panties in a wad. I think it’s hilarious, he tried to make her look stupid and pathetic and thought the public would swallow it easily because of her past & reputation or at least the public perception of it. She flipped the script on him and I have to hand it to her. And he’s kind of getting what he deserves. I personally think Taylor is a woman who truly stands for women. I like her. It’s a little funny to watch him squirm. He acted like an arse about it; I’d turn the tables on him too.

        Enjoy your popcorn!

        ETA: I don’t feel bad for Hiddles because I think (I KNOW) celebrity has gone to his head. Rarely can I resist my empathy, but it’s straight up non-existent here for the Loki’d and the Lokier. And Loki used to be my favorite!

    I have to admit, i’m surprised by all the heat they get in the press and not just the gossip, The Guardian and Huffington Post openly mocked them, plus the EPIC take down of Daily Beast. Well it’s a lesson I guess, when your staged pictures are so obvious…

    We are taking over the veranda at the Breakers (Anderson Cooper’s Vanderbilt ancestors’s summer “cottage” in Rhode Island. Colin is stocking the buffet with lots of Rhode Island items such as clamcakes, pizza strips, wine biscuits, zeppoles from Shiloh’s (even though it is the wrong season), ravioli from Vendas, ice cream from Newport Cremery, and a coffee milk fountain. And of course, we have Del’s. And vodka.

    Free vending machines with all these items will be set up on the beach for the fray, because some of you are definitely fraying.

    Colin will keep these stocked while I’m off doing a trial this afternoon. Mark, as always will be handling security, so don’t things don’t get out of hand.

    God I love Swfty for this. She quietly let Calvin Harris release statement after statement about how bad she wanted to marry him but he’s just so private and chill and wants to be left alone with his shirtless mirror selfies, and then BAM! Confirms her upgrade with a kissy stroll of whimsy with Lord Dragonfly himself. A toast to you my queen. 🍸

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I’m just point out there’s more than one way to perceive what she’s doing. I get the satisfaction of showing your ex that you’ve moved on. I get why she’d want to shag Lord Dragonfly. But when it appears that this is nothing more than an opportunistic fling on both their parts, it makes them both look immature and shallow. It doesn’t reflect well of their character.

        I don’t follow Swifty, but Tom’s worked hard to cultivate this image of being the serious, mature actor that’s above all the PR gaming and so this sort of thing makes him look disingenuous. When given the golden opportunity to attach himself to one of the biggest pop stars in the world, he jumped all over it.

  20. Louise177 says:

    Tom and Taylor seem so fake. i can’t put my finger on it but it seems superficial. Maybe it’s because they are so cheesy separately together they seem odd. i’m surprised there aren’t cheating rumors considering she was still with Calvin at the Met. I guess the no drama, just love and support is off. I feel like there will be more drama now.

  21. One2 says:

    Didn’t she just get back from a trip with calvin like 3 or 4 weeks ago? Its seems a bit fast to move on after dating someone for a year.

    Maybe she cheated on him at the Met thingy, CH found out and she tried to make it work but then he couldnt handle it. I fohnd it odd that the first statement they released said that cheating wasn’t involved. Why would you say that before anyone thoughts it?

    CH dumping taylor makes this look like Hiddles is conforting her and smoothes the transition (take note chris evans) Sorry for crazy rambling.

    • Malificent says:

      I’m wondering if it wasn’t the opposite angle. Maybe Calvin refused to be her plus-one for the Met because it’s so unchill, and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. So Taylor decided to show him up by flirting with the next thing that walked through the door.

    • Erinn says:

      I think the cheating thing was because of the whole car crash ‘he was a passenger with a woman driving” statement.

    I’m sure that they like each other, but clearly Calvin dumped her and the break-up was less than amicable; her PR found a way to switch her usual victim narrative and Tom gets more publicity in the US.

    • Maria says:

      “This reminds me of being dumped by my first boyfriend at 16 and making sure that he could see me making out with a guy I couldn’t care less of in the school cafeteria LOL.”
      Taylor Swifts life in one sentence.

  24. Naya says:

    Lmao and at the same timen having so many racing thoughts over this. Question: how much of ANY of this is real? Seriously, both these “relationships” need deciphering

    1) They are both real and Taylor just moved really fast. Like “14 days and we are snogging on a rock” fast

    2) Neither was/is real. Calvins outrage is based on how she has made him look by rolling out the next guy so fast.

    3) Calvin was real in the beginning and they faked it for year to keep riding the power couple wave. In this scenerio she may have been with Hiddles during that Met gala.

    Also, what are the chances that this photo op was forced on Taylor and Hiddles? As in The Sun had some dirty scoop (she was cheating perhaps?) and Tiddles decided to offer them an early coming out photo shoot instead.

    Is it possible that Calvin is intentionally cultivating a cuckold public persona? Rita Ora is famously unmonogamous and yet he hooked up with her expecting monogamy. TSwift is looking very much to have pulled a number too and by deleting her photos he seems to be confirming that assumption. What if, this is his PR thang? Broken hearted DJ.

    • Brea says:

      My theory is that Calvin and Taylor were real, were on the rocks after a while and Calvin dumped her right after Coachella. At the Met Gala she flirted and had fun with Hiddleston, but she was still keeping everything under wrap because the future break-up with Calvin was supposed to be amicable and drama- free according to their agreement. When Hiddleston PR and Taylor PR saw that the dancing clip became viral, they decided that their little flirt would have been good publicity wise, because Taylor needs to stop being seen as the perpetual victim and Tom needs to get name recognition outside of Tumblr.
      When Calvin’s team started to spread all the stories about how boring and clingy Taylor was her PR decided to unleash the Hiddleston flirt with the staged photos, in order to make Calvin look foolish in the press.

  25. Beatrice says:

    “Players gonna play, play play, play, play…” Me thinks Taylor is entitled to have a little fun with this and not cower and cry in a corner or hide out of shame. It still looks like Calivin initiated this break up, so if he is feeling betrayed, I guess he will have to deal with it by writing his own series of songs. Taylor was looking pretty serious with Calvin for awhile, but maybe she saw this break up coming and decided to get out in front of it by making the most of an attraction to a hot, up and coming actor. Let the games begin!!!

    • Mira says:

      I don’t get this idea that the best way to deal with a break up is to get with someone new 2 seconds after you broke up. It seems childish and also mainly concerned with ego. Its not a genuine thing, its about person feeding their shattered ego after a failed romance or being dumped.

      • Maria says:

        it also does not help with actually working through it. but i dont think Talyor is someone who is interested in romantic relationships. most women her age arent.
        taylor is a career person and not someone who is looking for love.

      • Mira says:

        She’s going to be 27 soon. She is not that young. I am in her age group most women in their late twenties do care about their relationship. We are not babies.
        And also Tayolor likes to talk about forever after so its her own fault if people presuppose that is what she wants. But my point was more that people who view romantic relationships from the point of view of their ego ( as i suspect both Calvin and Taylor do, as they seem to be engaged in a not so subtle who dumped who argument via the media) make for selfish, superficial partners.

      • Kitten says:

        I agree in that I could never EVER just bone someone if my BF and I broke up. I would just have no desire. That being said, in the past when I’ve had casual things with guys that ended after months, I usually moved on really quickly. I mean REALLY quickly.

        But yeah, I think if you truly love someone it’s incredibly difficult to start immediately sleeping with someone right after you break up–at least if you’re an emotionally mature human.

        It’s possible that the thing with Calvin had been fizzling for some time now and she just wasn’t into it anymore. That would definitely make it easier to move on.

      • Mira says:

        @Kitten
        If you want to have flings and hooks its possible to do that in private. I am talking about the desire to put it out there so everyone is aware, so you can one up the guy who allegedly dumped you two weeks ago or show that you are still desirable or whatever this staged thing is all about. It actually doesn’t make me think she loved Calvin ( or is into Hiddleston for that matter) as much as it makes me think, immature and childish and trying to control media narrative.
        Hiddleston is despite his omnipresence on this site not that famous in general. If Jennifer Lawerence and Chris Martin ( who is much more famous then Hiddleston) managed to conduct an affair with almost not a single photo for a year. Then how come swift and hiddleston has a whole romance novel photo series two weeks after Taylor broke up with Calvin? Its actually funny in its transparency.

      • Nany says:

        Too bad few people believed totally in the Lawrence and Martin “romance”…they got shaded in the papers as well. Esp when people mag was using twitter as an official news source for all these romantic dates

      • Mira says:

        Nany
        It doesn’t matter what you believe. Even if you take the Martin situation out of the occasion, Lawrence is able to live her life without being papped every day. Obviously she would be dating people, its been 2 years since she spilt with Hoult, she is gonna see people, but we don’t see the pictures in the media all the time do we.
        Eve Mendes wasn’t seen at all during her last pregnancy. Kerry washington got married nobody really knew she was dating someone special. There are plenty of celebrities who are able to keep their dating life out of the media.

    Am I the only one who feels like this coupling is gross?

    Maybe I’ve got my ages and dates crossed but I always considered Hiddleston in grown man territory and now being in Taylor’s romantic drama feels kinda creepy.

      Taylor = 26

      Tom H= 35
      Calvin = 32
      Harry S = 22
      Kennedy = 22
      Jake G = 35
      John M = 38

      She’s always dated a lot younger (esp Conor who was 18 at the time, and that young 4 years is a lot) or a lot older.

      • Naya says:

        “A lot younger”? She was only four years older than the younger guys. Meanwhile the gap between her and the older guys is on average ten years.

      • Lex says:

        @Naya four years doesn’t sound like a lot now, but Harry and Connor were 18 and 17 while she was 22 or 23. Yeah, that’s kind of inappropriate.

      • Karen says:

        I meant… she was signing conor out of high school for weekends together. He was 18, she 22. Mentality its a huge difference in age. I added clarification.

  29. Nancy says:

    Big names and mature minds can keep things private, i.e. Angelina Jolie-Pitt had major surgeries and not a soul knew. Taylor has the name but not the maturity. Of course she wanted those pictures seen with that guy. Take that Calvin……but if this is a budding romance for her, this guy seems like he would give her the adoration she seems to covet. Hopefully this will be the end of the poor Taylor got dumped era.

    • Micki says:

      I don’t believe that Huddleston will give her adoration. To me he seems like the male version of Aniston. I think he may break her heart /hurt her pride worse than any previous bf.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I think this is a case of two people using each other for their own agendas. It has nothing to do with love. Sex and publicity, perhaps… but not love. As much as I harp on Tom on this site, he even surprised me with how low he’s willing to go to boost his fame.

      They both look shallow, immature and ridiculous to me.

    I believe that they genuinely like each other, this way her PR found a way to switch the usual victim narrative and Tom gets more publicity in the US

  31. Lex says:

    I just don’t find Taylor “baller” over this. I know Tom has tons of fans, but it’s not like he’s the Prince of Hollywood. She kind of looks like she’s too desperate to be alone, so she had to immediately find someone else. And going it so blatantly obvious that it’s staged has the media mocking her again. This site is the only one congratulating her. I think this PR moved failed for both of them (people are now saying he’s gay, so I hope if he is he wanted to come out), and now she’s back to being a joke.

    • Maria says:

      i agree. the daily beast and guardian are trashing them both for that and the general public is thinking about Taylor as cheating on Calvin. it backfired.

      • Ohnoohyes says:

        I hope it backfires big time for her. I just don’t understand why Calvin is getting so much hate for their break-up…and if it turns out Taylor was cheating (she was definitely flirting btw) while they were together, then I think he’s handled this damn well.

    • Keaton says:

      Yep. ITA. I don’t see how she won the PR game if people are mocking Tiddles (heh) as fake. In fact it made me think Calvin *did* dump her and she’s trying to get revenge on him. Very high school. Very Taylor I guess. SMH

  32. Micki says:

    Why the resentment when he did the dumping?
    I love it how she was so “clingy” that she jumped on the next guy in a hot second. Very well played.

    • Jayna says:

      Yep. He should be happy this poor babies-on-the-brain girl he dumped found someone. So why delete her from his social media? Lol

      • Lex says:

        @Jayna She deleted all of his pics on her Instagram too. So does that make her bitter about Calvin as well?

    • Ohnoohyes says:

      I’d be resentful too. It raises questions of how faithful she was during their relationship, and he invested all that time and energy into her. Why is he being made the enemy so much on here just because he broke up with her and is upset that she’s publicly hopping to another man less than TWO WEEKS after they broke up? He’s probably not resentful that she’s with someone else, but resentful because it’s such an obvious PR move that it reveals that’s all she cares about…high school drama.

      • Erinn says:

        lol invested all that time and energy – but he certainly exhausted a lot of time and energy making it clear that she was the problem … sooooo.

        I don’t know. I think he’s being petty. It’s funny how during the breakup stories everyone was like “THEY DIDN’T EVEN SEE EACHOTHER MUCH” but now that we have a story of Taylor moving on it’s “SHE MUST HAVE CHEATED ON HIM. HE SPENT SO MUCH TIME WITH HER”.

        People just love to hate Swift.

      • Kitten says:

        +1, Erinn. Everyone’s so mad lol. I love it!

      • Micki says:

        @:Ohnoohyes: I am speaking for myself when I say that Huddles is a rebound for Swift. I don’t think she has deep feelings right now apart from enjoying her ego trip. I don’t know if this is going to be a new relationship that will crumble under their “busy schedules” or else.

        I must admit I don’t care either way. But for once I must say that this PR was a stroke of a genius and the execution was masterful. Swift is up-ting her game. It’s time anyway.

      • Ohnoohyes says:

        Each to his own. I’m actually not a Taylor hater (I unashamedly play 1989 on repeat) but this just irks me for some reason….either way I’m with y’all on it definitely being entertaining :D

      • Christin says:

        Both sound immature, IMO. Which only adds to the entertainment…

      • Erinn says:

        Ohnoohyes – just a side note in case it came across this way – my previous post wasn’t just calling you out! I meant it was a generic – all of these threads – commentary.

        And I unashamedly play it too. God, I even catch my husband listening to her hahaha. Pretty sure there was a sirius xm alert on his car.

  33. Miss M says:

    The while relationship just proves that Taylor is not really naive and tom is very ambicious. I wonder what side of Taylor will be marketed for her next album… I am also curious what he will do next to his career.

  34. Eva says:

    Why would she stage these photos when they make her look like a cheater?

    Just doesn’t make sense to me why she would want those out there.

    • Naya says:

      I am equally baffled.

      Assuming she didnt cheat and they werent extorted into this by some tabloid that had some damaging reveal lined up, then maybe its because Calvins side was painting her as undesirable, boring, clingy, lacking sex appeal. Moving on fast with an upgrade (?) confirms that she is in demand.

    • With her state of maturation, I think Taylor would rather look like a cheater than being dumped in public, again. She thinks those are her only two options as opposed to being alone and spending time getting to know herself better.

    • Mira says:

      Because she has a massive immature ego and didn’t like how Calvin portrayed her. Calvin is the same tbh. Let the battle of the egos commence.

      • Keaton says:

        I agree with @Mira and @thinkingaboutit
        Her ego was bruised when she got dumped yet again. She knows people think she’s a Stage 5 Clinger. She knows they see her as desperate and boy crazy. Calvin may have honestly cared for her but he also played into that narrative with the statements coming out of his camp regarding the breakup.
        She’d much rather seem like a cheater – with tumblr’s boyfriend no less – than the perpetual loser in love. Look at all the positive comments about her here? She’s a baller! She showed him! That’s what she was hoping for.

  35. Kiki says:

    I absolutely love pr relationships, don’t you? I honestly believe this is stage and both of them are being immature about it. I will say this in confession that I like Tom Hiddleston and he can date Taylor Swift but this is not going to end well wit the two of them. I think at this point Taylor Swift is an immature child in a woman’s body. I think she is desperate for attention from everyone and she is clingy because she recent break up, this is not healthy but I must say she went for an UPGRADE. Also, she needs to stop with the Girl Squad. It is tacky and so HIGH SCHOOL you are 26 years old, Grow up Taylor.

    Anyway, I don’t care for Tom Hiddleston, I think he is cute but Michael Fassbender just does it for me. Tom best of luck with Taylor Swift and her mean ( I mean Girl Squad team) and I hope you are ok when she writes another song about you.

  36. MAC says:

    With all the technology things like an entertainer’s brand has changed so they seem to be more in control of it to the point where it is orchestrated to a point where I think these people all are psychopaths.

  38. jferber says:

    I kind of liked Calvin before this, especially when he felt betrayed and hurt by Rita Ora (she later said, “Right guy, wrong time.”) I assume Rita played him (and why the hell not?) and that he and Swifty would end up together. How wrong I was! Calvin’s greatest love affair is with his own ego. He comes off as selfish and smug now. What kind of jerk would hurt Taylor Swift, especially when she thought he was the One? It’s like stomping on a kitten. Swift wrote a killer song about John Mayer, Trouble, and I hope she writes one on Calvin of the same caliber, or maybe even something epic and a classic like Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain. As far as I’m concerned, Calvin Harris has ruined his reputation forever. There is no recovering from this, Calvin!

    • daisie-b says:

      95% of the photos of Adam/Calvin with or without Taylor show him scowling. He is successful in his own right, but his association with her has brought him recognition far beyond his world of Vegas and concerts and recordings. If scowling is his default expression then being around that has to take a toll on the relationship. I hope Tom takes her to Royal Ascot and Wimbledon and quotes the classics to her. Tom and Taylor have my blessing!

    • Julie says:

      I don’t even think Rita Ora cheated on him. I think he was just angry at how quickly she got into a new relationship after their breakup. He was fine before she started dating some other guy.

  39. Brea says:

    Working in a PR firm for a celebrity sound like the funniest and the most tiring job and the same time. Who thought of staging the pictures on the rocks? Is it the same person who thought of the pictures of her and Jake Gyllenhaal resembling a Bob Dylan album cover? Hand in hand in Park Slope?

  40. MSat says:

    Anyone who is all judgy about diving into a hot new relationship with a sexy guy after a bad breakup has never had a “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” moment. I swear by it. After my very ugly divorce, I went out and got me a very fun boy toy (10 years younger). My friends were aghast, but it worked wonders.

    • Kitten says:

      Good for you–I’m all for it–but I really think it all depends on how the relationship ended.
      Like, if you were going through a tumultuous divorce and you just grew to really despise your ex, then yes, a post-divorce bone sesh should be the first item on the bucket list.
      But if you had a sad, mutual, amicable break-up then I think time is essential–time to heal and process what happened, learn from it, and basically “fix” yourself before you jump into something physical with someone, even if it’s just a casual fling.

      In the past when I’ve ended something but still been in love with the guy, I just couldn’t bring myself to screw someone new. It just felt gross to me.

      Or maybe there’s no hard, fast rules to this type of thing. Just do what you feel like lol.

  41. CFY says:

    I LOVE this. It’s been such a tough week – I live in Orlando and I just haven’t been interested in any news or stories that aren’t connected to all the s–t that’s happened here in the last week. Until Tiddles. Read it on Lainey yesterday and I felt this surge of glee and it was so refreshing to feel that way.

    I don’t care if this a contract, if this is a staged way to announce her new bf, or if this is a friend helping another friend out after her dbag ex spread unflattering stories about her in the media. I’ve hated the narrative of Swifty: Needy and Unloveable, Again. I kept thinking “I wish she had dumped him for someone much better, that she traded up for someone actually on her level.” And she did! Thank you Gossip Gods. Don’t care if it’s real or not. I love that this makes DJ Beige look like a total chump. Get it girl.

  42. Jade says:

    I don’t care if it’s orchestrated or fake, I’m just here to be entertained and not take this so seriously! Am loving this turn of events though I’m not a fan of Hiddles. Me thinks TS has turned the male rock star narrative upside down and owns it. She’s single and dating around and that’s fine. No need to think this will be the last man for her.

    • Kitten says:

      People are taking it way, WAY too seriously.
      It’s fun entertainment and it’s nice to have this lighthearted silliness after the seriousness of the Depp/Heard story.

  43. Mira says:

    This whole scenario reminds me of Henry Cavill and Kaley Cuoco

  44. Tw says:

    She is not a PR genius. She pays a lot of money to a PR company. And in opinion, this is terrible PR and only contributes to her image as an immature, revenge-seeking Stage 5 clinger.

    • Miss M says:

      Let her “hang herself” in her PR rope…May be she will finally learn to be genuine and mature a bit…

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Same goes for TommyAnnE. He’s looking pretty disingenuous at the moment.

      • Miss M says:

        @nutballs: Hiddleston is not a Saint, never has been. He/Luke just tries to control his ambition and ego. Now it is all out…
        A RADA trained actor resorting to this type of stunt is both sad and funny, a pr dramedy!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Miss M, I’ve been in y’all camp since reading the comments on the old posts back in the Thornfield days. Last summer, his pap walks with Lizzy exposed his thirst once again. Now, this bit of PR gold just tore the mask off, so there’s no denying it now.

        Can’t wait to see what Luke cooks up to try and fix this mess. May they keep stumbling, so we can keep having gossipy fun for months. Outside of Bora Bora and THEO posts, they’ve been rather boring the past couple of years.

      • Miss M says:

        I have always been an apologetic dragonfly. I have no problem with this pr since I want something to laugh at and for that, I think them for the free entertainment! I just want to see how he will handle it when it goes sour because it will…

      • NUTBALLS says:

        He’ll handle it like every other split… he’ll remain silent on the matter and act as though he’s moved on. Any “drama” that ensues (there always is with her, right?) will be coming from her camp.

  45. Neal says:

    It’s just so uncomfortably perfect! They’re like the same twee, overly excitable person.
    All the fan anger is also just amazing.

    I haven’t smiled this wide in days. I feel like a need to get them a card or something.

  46. right says:

    I say BRAVO to her just because she’s not there doing what everybody expected her to be doing, like writing sad songs while weeping for the end of her magical relationship. She’s out there doing great and exploring her options jut like any other man would. GO TAYLOR!

  47. kodakay says:

    He shouldn’t be bothered at all IF HE IS. He dumped her so shouldn’t care what she does!

  48. HeyThere! says:

    I hope this is real!!! After their awesome dancing videos, I think they mesh well together! You need a partner in life you can be silly with, laugh with….and also be romantic with on the beach! Work it, Tay!!

  49. Christina says:

    * buy popcorn*

    She’ll either stalk Tom Hiddleston during his time filming in Australia for Thor 3 and/or drop a new album about Calvin Harris and do interviews about her current magical relationship.

    I really don’t care which comes first. We win either way 😂

    • Miss M says:

      It will be glorious!
      Does she have a house in the UK?!
      If not, she will probably try to find one near Where he lives…

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I don’t think she does, but it would be simple for her to move in nearby with all the disposable cash. She really seems to like buying houses — I read she has something 4 or 5 here in the States.

  50. Mira says:

    Even Daily Mail has an article about everyones saying its staged. Thats really saying something lol! The memes are glorious! :)

  51. serena says:

    I’m giving Taylor props on this. Clavin is just pissed and is acting like a crybaby because, after he told her off to the press (just because he didn’t want to commit), he feels like a loser now that she moved on so fast and with someone that famous. In your douche-y face!

  52. lile says:

    LONG LIVE HIDDLESWIFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. KiddVicious says:

    That kissing photo makes me uncomfortable. She doesn’t seem that into it while Tom is wrapped around her and in her face, like he’s forcing her to kiss him. I would be very claustrophobic if someone were sitting wrapped around me like that, so maybe that’s where its coming from, but it honestly seems forced to me.

  54. Ali says:

    Tom Hiddleston is not attractive, at all, so for me the story fell flat. It’s juicy in theory, but he’s ugh…*ducks*

    • Christin says:

      I don’t get it, either. Nor did I get the last one’s appeal. She goes from the Oswald lookalike (1960s reference) to this.

  55. Cee says:

    Do shut up Adam Calvin. You went to the press trying to look like a big man, telling everyone your ex was too virginal and inexperienced, and that YOU did the dumping, ending a relationship that was never right because of different personalities.

    Let Taylor have her fun. Tom might be the one for her, or not. She’s in her 20s! Let her lead the life she wants.

  56. I’m embarrassed for Taylor, did something like this when I was 16. Tom is equally thirsty, but he’s old thirsty.

  57. HalfieProud says:

    I don’t care about either one of them but this is THE BEST. The internet breakdown and anger is THE BEST.

    OMG the internet’s nerd crush is hooking up with the head cheerleader. Have you been on tumblr??? This is so entertaining!

  58. A.Key says:

    Isn’t she too old for this juvenile middle school crap? I dunno, maybe I expect more from a grown ass 26 year old woman. I’m not even gonna comment his sorry old ass, is he reversing in wisdom and mental age?
    In any case, hasn’t she learned at all? She did this with Jake Gyllenhaal a few years back and it lasted all of 3 months before he ran like hell never to look back and she spurted broken heart ballads about him.
    Jeesh, I get she’s probably secretly dying to become the next Jennifer Lawrence and that people start taking her seriously, but this isn’t the way to do it Swift.
    As for him, premature mid-life crisis?

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Dara and I have a theory that after working like a dog for two years with disappointing to mixed results, he’s reverting to new tactics to broaden his name recognition. Since he’s sliding towards 40, time is of the essence since in a matter of a few years, he won’t be able to compete for some of the younger, leading man roles he’s currently able to.

  59. A says:

    This mess is yummilicious.

  60. Gorgonia says:

    Anycase, this is the best gossip in this early summer. Let’s hope the rest of the season is going to be as juicy as this!

  61. Veronica says:

    Hes pissed and betrayed, eh? But I thought he was the one who dumped her after she got clingy, she was the one who wanted to go too fast, she wanted the ring, etcetera. Which one is it, Calvin? Staged photos or not, Taylor is the undisputed winner here.

  62. Tara says:

    Oooooooo… Next up: Shakespeare sonnets while swimming with SWANS!!

  63. Keaton says:

    Clarifying and sort of revising my opinion about whether Taylor “won”
    I still don’t think this is a great PR move since so many people are calling out the fake photo op. HOWEVER if her main goal was to make Calvin feel like crap after he dumped her? Game, set, match. She got her revenge for sure.

  64. Pabena6 says:

    Sorry to go off topic, but it’s “good wishes,” not “well wishes.” “Good” is the adjective, “well” is the adverb – so you can wish someone well, but you send them good wishes. I’m spitting in the ocean, I realize — it’s the same situation with so many people now thinking it should always be “…and I,” because they think it sounds classier, even though “…and me” is always correct after a preposition — but I have to get it out of my system periodically.

    Now back to more interesting gossip. Have a good weekend, all.
