Taylor Swift brought Tom Hiddleston to Nashville, she thinks he’s The One


Well, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were on the move and we didn’t even know! I thought they were probably still in New York. But no. They flew, undercover, to Nashville. Taylor owns a huge crash pad in Nashville too (if memory serves, it’s an apartment decorated with an Alice in Wonderland theme), and so she’s continuing to give Hiddles a tour of all of her crazy real estate. We know that Tiddles is in Nashville because they were seen attending Selena Gomez’s Nashville concert last night. Video/Snapchat evidence – some context is that they were with Taylor’s BFF Abigail and Abigail’s boyfriend Matt.

E! News says that Taylor went to the Nashville Zoo earlier in the day on Tuesday too, but Hiddles wasn’t with her. As for the Selena concert, a source told E!: “Taylor invited Tom to go. Tom always wants to please Taylor and show her that her friends matter. Taylor likes that about Tom.” Hilariously, E! also reported earlier on Tuesday that Taylor thinks Tom could be “The One,” because of course. A source says:

“Taylor was hesitant to get involved so quickly after Adam but she she felt that Adam was not giving her what she wanted for some time so she was ready to move on towards the tail end of their relationship anyway.”

But when Taylor met the Thor star, “there was an immediate attraction,” says a source. “She felt like she was a little school girl with a huge crush. She loves the fact that Tom acts like such a mature man. She lives that he is older. She feels very safe and protected with him. The attraction is very strong.”

A source adds that Taylor and Tom, who were photographed kissing on the beach of Misquamicut in Watch Hill, Rhode Island just last week, “are likely gonna be an item.” The “New Romantics” singer “is not on rebound mode, even though Tom questioned it a little when they first started talking.”

“Tom wants to be with Taylor,” says the insider. The twosome are “already very attached” and “text all the time.” Plus, according to a source, “Taylor said she thinks he is the one, as odd and new as it sounds.”

[From E! News]

I need for Taylor Swift to never change!!! She always thinks the new guy is The One. She always gets super-serious really fast… until it blows up in her face. And I like how she’s justifying the seeming overlap between “the end of Calvin” and “the start of Tiddles.” She was ready to move on, you guys. And when she saw Tom’s flailing at the Met Gala, she thought “YES THIS IS THE ONE.”

Update: Originally, we were sent a SoundCloud recording from a Belgian radio show where Tom seemingly confirmed the relationship – you can hear it here. But it seems to be fake.

    He is doing what his PR tells him to do. Stay in the public eye. Gone are the days when “some things are sacred.”

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I don’t mind the fact that he’s playing the game. They all are. You gotta do what you gotta do. The probem is that he’s playing the game so badly.

      • Grace says:

        Maybe he’s on a tight schedule to get his name out as quickly as possible.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        Considering that his PR game was on-point so far, IMO he is exactly where he wants to be.

      • Rebecca/Becky says:

        “Taylor invited Tom to go. Tom always wants to please Taylor and show her that her friends matter. Taylor likes that about Tom.”

        Who writes this sh**?

      • Grace says:

        @ Rebecca/Becky somebody getting paid.

    • twilly says:

      Teenybopper Tom – on the move! Going, very quickly, from classy to crazy. Way to go!

    • Sixer says:

      But some things ARE sacred! I’m thinking of erecting a temple to TIDDLES so that I can worship at the altar.

      • A.Key says:


        I hate to admit it, but Tiddles surpasses Jarthy for sure!

      • Sixer says:

        You have no idea at all how much I hate to admit it, but yes – Tiddles is outdoing JArthy by a country mile (pun intended). I’m erecting that temple in my mind’s eye. It’s going to be pink with cat statues.

      • Mr. Balls says:

        My dear wife would agree with you, Sixer. And you know how much she loved the JArthy. She was jumping in her seat crying, “This is the crackballs Tom that I just knew was under that tightly managed persona he’s been managing for years. Finally, his posts are buckets of fun! MOAR HiddleSnickers, MOAR thirst, MOAR teenybopper concerts, MOAR sex with pop princesses!”

        I left a note on her behalf on yesterday’s thread in response. She wants to chat about eurodrama now that she’s done with The Disappearance.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:


        Who is JArthy? I have seen this mentioned in a couple threads and I am out of the loop!

      • Sixer says:

        Mr Balls! Tell yer missus that I really enjoyed the Spanish one, Locked Up, on the Walter Presents website. Also Walter Presents, Dicte, about a crime reporter.

        Otherwise, what with Neverendums and Euro 2016, there is very little to watch. She’ll probably have to wait until after the Olympics now. I’ll sigh along with her.

      • Mr. Balls says:

        Dicte is in our Netflix queue. I’ll pass on your recommendation. Thanks!

      • KB says:

        @NASB JArthy is his ex Jane Arthy. I think his fans kind of went apes*^% and hated her. And she’d troll them on Twitter. If you google her full name you’ll find all kinds of crazy. And he denied they were together, but they were photographed at Wimbeldon holding hands.

    • Christin says:

      At least he’s making it clear this is fun. A thrilling ride. Little does he know the last stop in this theme park is a PR house of horrors.

    • cyn says:

      Well, that settles it: Tiddles is for real y’all. He went to a Selena Gomez concert. I would rather have my toenails ripped out one by one. I would rather slide down a rusty razor blade into a pool of alcohol. I would rather…well you get the point. I would not willingly go to a Selena Gomez concert for my children, who I love more than life itself. It’s official he looooooves her. One question though: did he stand with all the dads praying for it to be over or did he hang with the skeevy uncles chatting up the preteens? Oh Hiddleston how far you’ve fallen.

      • zinjojo says:

        HAHAHA. The Selena Gomez concert is what jumped out at me. I can’t imagine willingly going to a Selena Gomez concert for anyone or any reason.

      • Bee says:

        When he’s seen at a concert he wouldn’t have been seen dead at before, you know it’s “real”. He’s captivated by all the pretty things, and the squad, and her grand tour of all the houses. Nuts in a vice already, and suddenly shallow as a puddle with a carbon footprint the size of her ego. Just when you’ve think his integrity has hit rock-bottom (ie. now), he will surprise us with something even worse. I genuinely feel sorry for his die-hard fans, because they never signed up for this joke. British Gentleman doing Jaguar ads to Embarrassing Douche posing in his undies, all within the space of one week.

      • Dara says:

        The whiplash is a b*tch, I can testify to that. I’ve been self-medicating with copious amounts of hard liquor and chocolate. I might switch to bourbon now that we know they are south of the Mason-Dixon.

      • Christin says:

        Dara, Jack Daniels is appropriate (Tennessee). 😉

      • LittlestRoman says:

        *adopts whiny tone and throws self around dramatically* I liked him, you guys! I really liked him! He used multi-syllabic words and professed to like Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. That sh*t is my kryptonite! Pass the bottle!

      • Ama says:

        Cyn, you made my day with this post! 😀

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    A lot of people have said Taylor has a great sense of humour, which is interesting.

    • Maria says:

      probably because we all have this image of her being super controlling and uptight. so the moment she makes a little joke you’ll be super suprised. just like when a little kid tells a naughty joke and you get caught off guard.

    • Lara K says:

      They make sense in a really weird way. Both should be sexy, but really aren’t.

      I can picture them being very polite in bed.

      • Crumpet says:


      • C says:

        😂😂😂😂 the comments today are awesome! Pure gold! I’m laughing so much!

      • K.C. says:

        They both have the ability to be sexy, but are usually just dorky. Not like geeky in a cute way, but straight up dorky. God, if the gossip gods love us and they stay together long-term, they’ll make THE MOST embarrassing parents one day.

      • Maria says:

        “Taylor old sport, do you fancy an in and out referendum?” *wink*

      • arabella says:

        LOL Maria love the Jon Oliver reference!!

    • LB says:

      I don’t doubt it. She just seems to have none when it comes to herself.

    • fanny says:

      Do you men polite in Darling can I …………finish ? The comments this week have been fantastic.

  3. OSTONE says:

    I think Swifty met her match? Someone who’s going to be down to play the famewhore game and will be okay with her being the breadwinner as long as he gets more recognition from it. Reminds me of Justin Theroux and Jen Aniston.

    • maria says:

      You might have a point. I hope it was worth loosing all your credibility hiddles! (seems like it is)

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yeah they both seem so EXTRA, it must be exhausting around them.

      I still think this is part of some weird reaction for him not being made Bond. I think Aidan Turner will get it instead.

      • kai says:

        Are they even casting for Bond? Craig isn’t even officially out yet, is he?

      • lilacflowers says:

        Craig has one more left on his contract.

      • kaiko says:

        Tom Hiddleston is the epitome of extra, or thirsty, or fameho or whatever else that can describe the utter desperation of his ego. I seriously just can’t watch the guy in movies, for all his perceived British pomp and legginess. I remember the first time I ever saw him on tv, on Wallender, you could almost feel his palpatating hyper self awareness, his third eye never left the camera shot. He craves and needs attention, and being on the TS train is a great way to be seen by tens of millions 24/7. I daresay he is in seventh heaven.

      • M.A.F. says:

        I’m so over this Bond talk. It’s an outdated concept of a film. There are other “spy” type movies/books out there. Bond is a not a make/break career move.

      • Julia says:

        @kaiko totally agree!!!

    • twilly says:

      Speaking of match – she can’t go to Wimbledon because children are not allowed!

  4. CidySmiley says:

    Oh my lord lol this is real you guys lol we prayed to the gossip gods and they answered. No offense to Taylor but everyone to her is “the one.” And as for Tom, I mean he killed Any attraction I had for him in the Disney style beach phot shoot on the beach, but … I don’t know I feel like he’s getting what he wants during his between mid life and quarter life crisis. The attention.

    • mary simon says:

      Every new guy is the one, or could be the one, until he is not the one. I think that is true for any woman who is dating. This relationship looks more ridiculous than real. And btw, I like Tom, but he would not make a good Bond. Not even close.

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      I don’t understand where this comes from though – I never hear her saying her current guy is the one (she did gush about the DJ), so it is others putting that out there, then she has to live with the idea that she always thinks x, y, or z.

      • err says:

        yeah, I agree with supposedtobeworking. How in the WORLD would these magazines know if she thinks he is “the one.” They are just making up crap to sell a narrative. The only people who would know that are her or her like 2 best girlfriends, and they wouldn’t go to a tabloid.

      • Chels says:

        Someone allegedly hacked her dancers phones. In one of the texts she calls Calvin the one. Think it was about 2 months after they met,

      • bluhare says:

        I dunno, maybe it was when she bought the house next to the Kennedy compound when she was dating the high school Kennedy.

      • Liberty says:

        bluhare, exactly.

    • Blackcat says:

      Taytay’s “the one” add up to about a hundred.

      • AtlLady says:

        May I leave a wake up call for when Taylor moves on from her “high school” way of thinking?

    • Ama says:

      There goes the James Bond deal….boOOM…

  5. Lindy79 says:

    OK I thought the Nanna Rock pictures were going to be the height of awkwardness, then we had the Boxer ones and now we have so much Dad dancing with her and her friends at a SELENA GOMEZ concert.

    Thank You both! Truly.

    • C says:

      Lmao ikr? Selena Gomez concert? Yes Tom, very mature LOL

      • Lauren II says:

        My British hubby went to a Hilary Duff concert with me and my 7 year old daughter 9 years ago, which amazed me.

        His estranged wife was furious, and couldn’t fathom why he would go. “I just want their company. They make everything fun”.

        When a man wants to please you, he will endure a Hilary or Selena concert.

        I like Tom and Taylor together. Tom is classy, dorky-sexy, articulate and well educated.
        Tom is an upgrade from Calvin-whom was with Rita Ora for over a year-Tay was much too good for Calvin.
        Let Taylor enjoy the Hiddles ride.

      • K.C. says:

        @LaurenII That’s my line of thinking, too. It’s not pathetic if a guy goes with his girlfriend to a silly concert (and it was her friend’s concert, so obviously that’s important to her). It’s just…being a good boyfriend? Especially in the early stage of their relationship when he’s trying to win her over. Doesn’t hurt a guy to go to a bad pop concert or take his girlfriend to see a girly rom-com now and again. Oh, the things we do for love.

        This couple is absurd and silly and wonderful together. Real world news (and even some Hollywood news) has been really sad lately, so I’m thrilled to support these two dorks while they do whatever it is they’re doing.

    • Lucrezia says:

      What’s the average age of Gomez fans? They’re tweens right? How awkward would that be for an adult man!?

      • Bee says:

        Apart from all the dads, he’d be the oldest person there. #cringe

      • Ayra. says:

        I kind of like Selena, but just a few of her songs anyway :(.

      • M.A.F. says:

        @Arya- I like that Love Song but other than that? Nope.

      • Carrie says:

        Maybe they are in a luxury box so they’re set away from all of the Tween fans? Because I agree, there’s something creepy about an adult male going to a Selena Gomez concert without his own kids!

  6. Lora says:

    Hahaha I love it! Its so emberrassing

  7. LannisterForever says:

    The way he’s describing her – this has to be fake, right? He sounds like he’s about to start laughing.

  8. maria says:

    Well of course he is the one! Every guy is the one until he isn’t for tay tay.

    • Kate says:

      I was just about to say that! Shes thought every guy was THE ONE. She doesn’t causally date.

    • claire says:

      I love how she/this gets talked about as if it’s some crazy behavior, instead of something just about everyone does.

      • maria says:

        Really? I only have one friend who acts like this.

        I met the one! He is the most amazing man EVER! No one has ever understood me like this! He is sooooooo great and no one has ever loved like us EVER!

        Break up: He’s an idiot! he used me! He was MEAN to me! Poor me the victim

        One week later new guy: I met the one! He is the most amazing man EVER! and so on

        Thankfully we don’t live in the same country now so I don’t need to hear about it anymore

      • Lauren II says:

        There are many disparaging comments about Tom and Tay. However, are any of us better than these two PR masterminds? Probably not.

    • Jade says:

      Sorry I call BS, after her and calvin broke the news was that “she wanted to get married etc”. Then two weeks later she hooked up with someone more famous so maybe she isn’t the love dumb girl everyone thinks she is.

  9. fanny says:

    Oh tommy tommy tommy…………………… Bless your famewwhore heart

    • twilly says:

      Notice in the short clip they were yelling Taylor, not Tom. Must have been a letdown for him. Mr. Swift is in for a rough ride!

      • Bethany says:

        He is obviously smiling about it in the vid, and if they were at an event like the convention he just attended, they’d be screaming for him. I don’t get this sneering attitude about how emasculating it is to date Taylor…

        ETA: oops, the video I’m talking about is not the five second one but the longer 30 second one I saw RTed several times on Twitter.

      • Kate says:

        Whoever ultimately becomes Mr Swift, will be in for a rough ride. My cousin went to her concert last year and has said that the way her fans worship her and the fact that she is totally into it is completely insane in person.

  10. A.Key says:

    Tiddles, the gift that keeps on giving.

    The only thing that bothers me is that I’m afraid his prepubescent antics will taint Loki, my favorite Marvel character. Next time I see him on the big screen all I’ll think of is SHAKE IT OFF.

  11. TotallyBiased says:

    The Belgian radio show is faked. They admit it in fine print on the page–that it is Mr. Hiddleston but his answers may not be to the questions asked.
    And you can check–the roller coaster is him talking about Crimson Peak in a much earlier interview, for example.
    But hey, those Belgians aren’t going to let the truth get in the way of clickbait!

  12. AG-UK says:

    I think he’s a good actor but totally lost all interest in him now. It’s embarrassing!!! It will end in tears I am sure. The thought of sitting / standing thru a Selena Gomez concert when he was probably the oldest unless you count the tweens parents taking them makes me cringe. I guess he could do his snake hip movements on the sidelines.

  13. Caitlin Bruce says:

    My second hand embarrassment is stopping me from listening to Tom’s call to the radio station so I need to know why was he was calling a radio station in Belgium for what purpose? Just confirm he’s dating Taylor? Or was there more too it?

  14. Sixer says:

    Kaiser, how are you even typing these posts? I can’t even do a tiny comment without it taking ages because my eyes are blurring with the happy tears of joyful laughter.

    I like LEGS so much more as the internet’s Cockwomble of Cringe than as the internet’s Unicorn Princeling. We’ve had flailing. We’ve had suede shoes on the beach, which I didn’t even realise was a thing. We’ve had PAPER KNICKERS in PUBLIC. Now we have full-on dad dancing at a teenybopper concert. It’s better than post-sex euphoria. I can barely breathe.

    More, more, more and MORE. Please nicely. With a jelly tot on top.

    • Grace says:

      You killed me with PAPER KNICKERS!

    • SnazzyIsAlive says:

      The “internet’s Cockwomble of Cringe”, “PAPER KNICKERS in PUBLIC”
      HA HA HA is all I really can say. I mean, what else is there?

      thank you Sixer, for being you 🙂


    • Sixer says:

      For their next trick, I think they should voice a Disney animation together.

      • SnazzyIsAlive says:

        All of a sudden I hear a duet of “a whole new world” in their voices and can’t get it out of my head …

      • Sixer says:

        Can you imagine?

      • M.A.F. says:

        Even better: go to Disneyland, wear mouse ears and get caught singing on one of the rides.

      • LittlestRoman says:

        Speaking of Disney, has anyone considered that he might have a Peter Pan complex so severe that he doesn’t actually realize he is a 35-year-old man?

    • Lucrezia says:

      I’m scared of you asking for more Sixer. What else is left to do?

      Honestly, other than “awkward romantic duet”, the only remaining category of second-hand cringe I can come up with is going full-on Mr Bean and getting your head stuck in a turkey.

    • Dlo says:

      Thank touy Sixer! I solo needed a smile after the week I am having

    • Nikki says:

      Sixer’s comment is extremely funny and also amazingly well written to boot. Sixer, please keep ’em coming..

    • Liberty says:

      Sixer. I had a long horrid travel day and night…can’t sleep…..and then, I find THIS GEM to make me believe in the wonders of life, the earth and language again:

      “the internet’s Cockwomble of Cringe”

      From the top to bottom of my heart, I thank you. Tomorrow will be a better day. I want to see them at Dollywood, though, wearing fleece, sharing pork.

  15. Shambles says:

    Of course he’s the one. Just like Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhal, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles, Connor Kennedy, and Adam Wiles were all THE ONE(s).

  16. Miss Jupitero says:

    Could he make it even more obvious that this is quid pro quo Hollywood style? Time to crank the Rachel Bloom song “I once was a mermaid but now I’m a pop star” and bring out the Jell-O shots.

    Still counting down to July 4th beach jumping pics. In retro swimsuits.

      …and he’ll go one step further and be in a white, paper, budgie-smuggler.

      • antipodean says:

        @Emma33, first laugh of the day, thank you so much for that visual, I will have LEGS in my head all day, wearing a bright yellow budgie-smuggler! You said white, I say yellow to off-set the pale skin, dontcha know!

    • browniecakes says:

      Cinderella (Tom) needs to be on the Thor 3 set in AU on July 4 so we’ll see if he drops a shoe, oh he already did in the W pictures, for Taylor to pick up and follow. Can TnT survive him working that far away for a couple months +? Will he see England again if she’ not on a UK tour? Will Tay ever Instragram the 10001 selfies she’s taken with him? All questions I need to know the answers to. TnT are THE ONE for me.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Wimbledon! Only work can keep him from Wimbledon!

      • kai says:

        I’m really, really, really, really, really looking forward to the couple-y instagram shots!! How long was it before she made it instagram-official with Calvin Adams?

      • Mr. Balls says:

        I don’t know if TSwizzle is a tennis fan, but if not, I’d expect her to be texting, taking selfies and drawing Tom’s attention from the match to HER.

        It could be the first real “test” of the relationship.

        -Noix Balles

    • Starkiller says:

      You do know that Brits don’t celebrate July 4th, right?

  18. Nicole says:

    *pulls out more popcorn* alright guys this is phase two of the relationship manual by Taylor Swift. She’s so predictable but hey I can’t complain. It’s a lot of fun to see what idiot gets pulled into her messes.

    Fun fact I’ve met a few of her bfs because she always brings them to Nashville and where she lives is close to where I went to school. I told my friend to keep an eye out for Tom and welp there he is. Now if she brings him to Fido or Pancake Pantry I’ll probs fall out of my chair laughing

    • Chicken says:

      If she brings him to Pancake Pantry it’s for sure a pap stroll because of the insane crowds there, unless it’s gotten less popular since I went to college in Nashville a million years ago. I pretty much always avoided that place, and the one time I remember eating there was on a Sunday morning wih my grandparents who were in town and I was so terribly hungover. Anyway …

    • kai says:

      So, what’s next? Serious questions. It’s Selena Gomez concert after A WEEK of (public) dating, what are we getting next week?

    • Christin says:

      And this Nashville sighting is just days from when the I Saw the Light DVD is released. Maybe they’ll go to the Opry!

    • Nicole says:

      Pictures of Tom doing something domestic in her house or with her cats. Then its the quote drops from members of her “squad”

      For sure a pap stroll if she goes to PP the place is still crazy busy…I remember running into Taylor squared there when they dated. It was the middle of finals and my roommate and I went to get pancakes as a pick me up and there they were. Saw JG at Fido. This is straight from her playbook.

      • kai says:

        What’s PP?

      • Chicken says:

        I used to see Keith Urban around town a lot. Not quite as exciting. If you’re a Vandy alum, go Dores! If you’re Belmont, I enjoyed many a run down Belmont Boulevard.

        Used to go to Fido for coffee alllllll the time. And Jackson’s, way too much time and money spent at Jackson’s.

      • Alex says:

        PP=Pancake Pantry
        My friends and I have seen Taylor many times along with Nicole and Keith at the movies! They were super nice when we waved and said hi. Nashville is lovely.

        and yes I am a Vandy alum. Anchor down! Fido was awesome and I spent way to much money at Chilis and Cabana but it was fine because it was “on the card” haha

      • Chicken says:

        I don’t know if you still can, but when I was there, you could load the card yourself and it billed whoever was paying your tuition or whatever (I’m sure it’s more sophisticated now, I graduated in 2006 because I’m ooooooooold). After the first semester I realized I could do this, I got in a world of trouble after my dad saw the ridiculous amount of money he’d been billed for from the card. I worked a lot of shifts at my summer job that year to pay him back.

      • Alex says:

        Ah yea you left before I even got there but we had the same process as well. I hardly ate the meals I was given so I always had roll over.

        Oh Vandy I miss you

      • Mr. Balls says:

        Pancake Pantry, Fido, SATCO, Bread & Co are all possibilities. My money is on Loveless Cafe. They’re used to celebrities there.

        All this NashVegas chatter reminds me of my music biz days. I miss the Bluebird Cafe — another place they *could* turn up.

        -Noix Balles

        On second thought, it might be too *mature* for both of them.

        I LOVE Bluebird but they are not the place for a pap stroll. It’s so tight in there and the vibe is very indie (which I like). Even when I saw big names there we didn’t see many (if any at all) paps there.
        Just going off of TS playbook I’m sticking with my picks although Loveless is another good one. Bonus points if they do some cheesy pictures at the Opry or the Parthenon.

        Gosh I miss Nashville.

      • LittlestRoman says:

        I know, I know! Loveless Cafe photo op to coincide with the DVD release of “I Saw the Light”. Bonus points for a barf-tastic impromptu performance at the Opry or the Ryman.

    This Fortnight of Brexit Comic Relief by Tom Hiddleston is brought to you by the joint AMC/BBC Emmy campaign and that Camilla’s desire to distract from her ardent affair with Tom.

    Are you doing okay, Sixer? Still laughing through the pain of Brexit buildup?

    We have leisurely day on the veranda planned. Three separate sections have been set up out in the meadow for the “Sky is falling; his career is over, my crush is dead” contingent and the Bond group and the PR conspiracy spinners, although you may feel free to switch between the groups so long as there is no fighting.

    In our continuing coverage of silly pictures of actors in underwear, a special prize of a full magnum of champagne to the most creative guesses as to what Jude Law is holding in this picture and why anyone decided it would be a good idea to pose him like this. http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5034/1356/320/judelaw1.jpg

    • Sixer says:

      We’re all characters in a Kafka novel and I’ve taken to calling it the Neverendum.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Oooh! I like that! Tom could option the stage and screen rights and Taylor could re-write it as a musical.

      • Sixer says:

        Someone *would* have to shag the pig.

      • Sixer says:

        I will give a you a true story. I am signed up to the mailing lists of all the main political parties here. I like to know what nonsense they are all spouting at any particular time. The Labour Party have just emailed me with a journey planner to my polling station as their effort to get me to vote in their godawful Neverendum.

        In the UK, polling stations are generally less than a five minute walk from your house. Mine is about 100 metres from my house.

        A journey planner. I ask you. How infantilising can you get?

        I told you. Kafka.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Should the pig shagging song be a rousing, all -cast anthem or a moving ballad of love for the dead pig?

        Has any party offered you a ride to your polling station?

      • Sixer says:

        I think it should be rousing and performed to the tune of Rule Britannia.

        I used to do that back in the day in London. Give the rides to the oldies and infirmies, that is, not lazily make use of them!

      • lilacflowers says:

        Shag a pig
        Dave Cameron shagged a pig
        Do your part for Brexit
        And shag a pig.

      • Dippit says:

        Being Scottish, and having dedicated three months of my life in 2014 to our Referendum, I can safely predict, regardless of the result, Friday morning will not see the end of it.

        Despite the convincing 55% to No up here, we’ve since more than coined the term “Neverendum”. It’s been a desperate near two years post the vote. I spend my life thinking one day I’ll run out of steam… now to have added two months of campaigning for Remain… I’m about as desperate as Hiddleson is now looking.

        I’m trying to look upon this farrago as light relief, not sure it’s working.

      • Dippit says:

        On the Labour route map @Sixer – it’s an alternative to ‘pledge cards’. Turnout is vital to Remain. It’s only the last two polls, stripped, which have shown the Remain-incline voters as, only just, more determined to vote than those of Leave which has substantially led in voter determination until June 20th.

        I agree, to some it may seem patronising, but you’re already an active and engaged voter – all too many have yet to see the inside of a polling place. And the youth vote is also vital to Remain, it’s another pointer for new voters.

      • Sixer says:

        Dippit, I think the English should have been started off with a nice, easy one. Um… are Crocs the detritus of footwear? Should the digestive or the rich tea be the national biscuit? Something like that.

        Laughs aside, I agree: it won’t be the end of it. I also suspect that if we vote Remain, another one will be along soon enough. The EU has some very significant problems of its own, is currently in flux, and a treaty change may well be on the horizon. I can’t bear to think we’ll have to do this all over again but at least it would be to some end. As it is, I think we have unleashed this poison into the country because Cameron was terrified of any further defections to UKIP from the dissatisfied rump of his parliamentary party.

        Whatever the result, it has proved to be a reckless and divisive act to call it.

      • Sixer says:

        Dippit – do you watch GoT? I just thought of a new pun! It’s not a neverendum: it’s the Battle Bus of the Bastards.

        Poor taste, I know, but there’s nothing left to do but mickey-take, is there?

      • Dippit says:

        @Sixer – I vote for digestives for dunking.

        Yes, if there’s one thing Scotland has taught me lately is that my sense of humour is even darker than I thought… or will be until the SNP start state-monitoring laughs too.

        Keep taking the mickey.

        /off to do polling place rounds.

      • Dippit says:

        If it helps @Sixer – the betting markets have just reached a new high for Remain and it doesn’t look like random noise. Now over 80% probability of Remain result.

        My heart is still in my throat, however.

      • Sixer says:

        Dippit – this is what I’ve been saying ever since the GE last year. Our polling is broken. It seems to be measuring the online echo chamber of the nutty extremes on either side of issues. They must be overestimating online engagement or something and the phone poll methodology is definitely dodgy. I suspect a kind of unconscious push polling by telephone is going on. I’ve been looking at the bookies as the more reliable measure for a while now. Plus, there’s status quo bias on our side. Fingers crossed!

      • Dippit says:

        @Sixer – turnout is brisk here – just did %s for six polling places around me.

        I’m off to Italy in a couple of weeks and did toy with a quick pop in to the Post Office to get my Euros today for fear of, in the event of an Out vote, my £ will be worth far less tomorrow. BUT in the spirit of *fingers crossed* and hope floating, I’ve hung fire and am standing strong in a belief in Remain winning.

        Polling has been steadily going off for years (George Foulkes has been doing work on better regulating from The Lords). There was a good piece in The New Statesman this week re: the problem with polls. Whilst always mindful of them, I tend to not take the basic stripped down headline figures as anything close to gospel these days. Interesting however is that the latest ones this week saw more Remain-incline indicate intention as definitely likely to vote ahead for the first time over Leavers.

        We saw it in the Scottish Referendum – it was increasingly clear from our Better Together canvases (both phone and doorsteps) that No had the vote, yet polls kept emerging as Yes or too close to call. A lot of pollster field work seems increasingly flawed. And yes, it’s all too easy to enter the echo-chambers of social media and get a distorted picture… I’ve lost heart that way myself in the past.

        A guy I know who works the bookies trade markets today is doing all his speculation (as are others) on a Remain win. Those markets can’t of course predict % of votes, but they are increasingly more reliable on the probabilities. Remain currently stands at 84% probability to win.

        I’m putting my feet up, trying to relax, for a final push later – I’m at our local Count so a long night in store.

        Ultimately I expect the ‘silent majority’ have not been convinced of the worth of the argument to Leave and the Remain “irreversible” line has been playing better for continuing with the status quo than Leave’s “take back charge” which, although catchy as a soundbite, generally only reinforces to those already inclined to vote Leave.

    • zappy says:

      I love you lilac 😉 yes.. we should ride the Tiddles rollercoaster. Its a fun ride. we got laugh and snark. we must be thankfull hehe.. in the end everything will be fine.. At first I am surprised with Tom choice, but now.. nahh.. I just enjoy the gossip. I’ll enjoy his next movie. not a fan, but I like him as Loki, the only marvel character I like.. so enjoy your life tommy boy, just let me laugh and snark occasionally 🙂

      • lilacflowers says:

        I’m enjoying the show and I’m enjoying the over-reactions to the show. The latter a bit too much.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Can I join even though I’m the boards’ crying fangirl lol I’m able ot snark at this now I think. It’s just so lame. I could use something to distract from the darned Texas weather that finally reared its ugly head.

      • lilacflowers says:

        Sit right down right here and help yourself to a cool class of something tasty. Although you might want to make sure your mouth is empty when you look at that picture of jude Law in his undies. Seriously, who thought THAT was attractive? As for the rest of this, this too shall pass.

    • Lucrezia says:

      Based on his thigh-hair, I’m assuming Jude Law is NOT holding anything, and it’s just an unfortunate coincidence that his chest hair looks like a teddy bear.

      • lilacflowers says:

        You think teddy bear? I was thinking toy gorilla. But, as you point out, it could be just his chest hair. I never realized he was so furry.

    • M.A.F. says:

      I’m breaking off and creating my own viewing party. It’s the “let’s just eat popcorn and people watch this mess” viewing party.

      Jude Law photos: looks like a bear. And his leg hair grows in a weird pattern.

      I still need more coffee.

    • I Choose Me says:

      To your first question, re the Jude Law pic. It looks like a teddy bear. As to your second question, I’m guessing someone who was bored with photo shoots and decided to take the piss.

    I get it. Emotions don’t switch off 15 minutes before the breakup. If you’ve been emotionally (or physically) neglected for a while you can be ready to move on faster than seems appropriate to the outside world.
    Screw’em. It’s your life.

    That being said, if the world was watching my dating life in my 20’s, there’d be a Lifetime series dedicated to my royal idiocy. Tact is not a strong suit when you haven’t lived enough years to gain worldly maturity. I can’t imagine what it’s like when you’re young AND powerful.

    • maria says:

      She’s not young. She is a grown up woman about to turn 27 years old ( or already is).

      • Grace says:

        When you have lots of money at your disposal and find yourself with a successful career that brings more money from a young age, you never need to make the ends meet by constantly having your view of the world smashed and resembled and smashed again, you never need to adjust and learn, you never grow up emotionally.

        I don’t think the young woman is at fault here, however much I don’t care for her music and drama. She is the way she is because everyone has indulged her whim every step of her life.

      • maria says:

        I know Grace. But others should not defend her using the “she’s young” excuse when she is not. But her tween fans probably eat it up when their idol acts like a high school girl. Soooooo romantic to find the one! And the one after that. And yet another one 😉

      • OhDear says:

        I agree with this, but I think this is part of her usual PR rolling out a new “relationship” routine.

        Of course that’s young, what else could it be, middle aged?

      Pink, obviously. With bows AND flowers AND Sparkles
      – Snazzy

      • LAK says:

        Absolutely not. Pink is plebian.

        The dresses will be blush and bashful. Those are her signature colours.

    • lilacflowers says:

      Bedazzled Hello Kitty hats

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        A unicorn motif obviously

        I saw the best line yesterday about hiddles, ” I thought he was a unicorn when he was just an occasionally pretty horse” for the life of me I cannot remember when I read that but it had me cackling all day long.

      • M.A.F. says:

        Her cats will be the ring bearers.

      • LittlestRoman says:

        Zapp Brannigan, I am here to take credit for the unicorn line. Mostly because I spent the better part of the afternoon (and way too much of my employer’s money) trying to concisely and accurately describe the nature of my disappointment.

    We just missed them at the Selena concert last night. Our friends saw them walking out.

  23. Sixer says:

    I do have a Mr Sixer reacts because he forgot his pack up and came home for lunch.

    “I thought having to take the Sixlets to a WWE event was a fate worse than death. Clearly, I was wrong.”

    • lilacflowers says:

      I just choked!

    • InvaderTak says:

      HAAaaaa. Yeah. He took other dates to Wimbeldon and the theater. Not saying he shouldn’t enjoy a good pop concert but this doesn’t even seem like something he’d be into. Wonder if Swifty is going to insist they do stuff like that to make her look ~deep~.

      • Grace says:

        He can teach her metre for songwriting, no?

      • InvaderTak says:

        He could try. I don’t think it’s going to stick because I hasn’t yet lol

      • Dara says:

        @InvaderTak – there’s still time before he goes to Oz. He’s been hanging out in her world for a few weeks, now it’s her turn to spend time in his. Wimbledon starts next week, and I think he said he still needed to see Branagh’s Romeo and Juliet. Doesn’t that just sound like the perfect itinerary for an Anglo-phile like Tay-Tay?

    • Lindy79 says:


      As someone who has been to a WWE event with Mr Lindy when we won tickets, I concur with Mr Sixer. I at least could get drunk and laugh/heckle at the wrestling, plus looking at all the little excited kids was adorable. I’d have thrown myself off that balcony at Gomez.

    • M.A.F. says:

      What?! A WWE match would be way more entertaining then a teeny-bopper concert.

    • Scotchy says:

      Bwhaaa haha.. you are all golden!! Thanks for making my day!!

  24. Locke Lamora says:

    Well, I think we have to give Tom props for suffering trough a Selena Gomez concert. It must have been hard.

  25. Bethany says:

    Come on. That interview is fake and the Dutch or Danish station or whatever it is from admitted it days ago!

    Anywho. Sue me, I think they are cute. They seem mismatched, but in an interesting way. I think the video where all her fans are literally screaming while she waves and he’s waiting for her looking like he is getting a kick out of the whole thing is nice. Calvin seemed more introverted and serious and he didn’t seem to like attending events with Taylor. Tom seems like a huge extrovert who will maybe have a sense of humor about it and enjoy it.

    They are having quite the little whirlwind romance. I guess he was in London until late May, he flew to LA the day her breakup with Calvin was announced IIRC, but Taylor was in Nashville. Seems like the earliest they could have gotten together was when he was spotted in New York near her new apartment just days before the pictures came out, and he has already been to three of her places and met a bunch of her friends… talk about baptism by fire.

  26. InvaderTak says:

    Dude. Really? I hope they are really for real because I still don’t see how the hits he’s taken the past week are making it worth it if it was just publicity. And if they are for real, they’d have to go public anyway. I just want it to stop still.

    The Belgian thing is fake. There was some kind of twitter hashtag about it.

    • Grace says:

      It’s faked. See upthread.

    • kai says:

      It has to be for real. A Selena Gomez concert for God’s sake. It HAS to be real. Honestly, I like that he isn’t embarassed. Not sure if he “should” be, but…. He’s living. That’s nice. I’ll just have to look for a new internet boyfriend…

      • K.C. says:

        There is no longer even the slightest bit of doubt in my mind this is fake. Suffering through such a concert only stems from infatuation. No publicity in the world is worth that, especially since the only publicity generated came from other concertgoers.

        All this hullabaloo is making me like him more and more, honestly. I could never 100% trust Prince Charming Tom. Dorky, lovestruck Tom is something I can get onboard with. The level of mockery he’s enduring to be with this chick is somewhat endearing.

      • kai says:

        I swear I got a whiff of early mid-life crisis as well, but I agree… It must be real if he’s going along with that. Good for him. You can keep him, KC, but good for him.

        (By the way, I’m a Whovian and my initials are KC. 🙂 )

      • Meee4 says:

        He could still be plenty embarrassed, but just acting like it’s all good to save face, now that he’s being ridiculed.

        Looking at those videos he really did look outta place. Even in the cuddly hand holding ones.

      • K.C. says:

        It’s confusing, because I’ve been skeptical of him for years, and somehow this silly relationship that was announced via staged rock pictures is what’s winning me over. He annoys me less right now than he ever has, which I realize is perplexing and nonsensical. But I think I like that the shiny veneer has finally worn down, and now he’s just a nerd going to bad concerts with his girlfriend and A Disappointment to his fangirls.

        *waves* Always a pleasure to meet fellow Whovians. Well, not always, but in this case it is. 🙂

      • InvaderTak says:

        Or option 3: He actually doesn’t care. Hard for the fangirls to swallow-I’m leading the pack there I know, initial comment was fangirly delusional-, but it’s totally possible in light of the 180 he did in terms of PR story these past couple weeks.

      • Noname says:

        @InvaderTak @Meee4- Selena Gomez concert… I repeat Selena Gomez concert. This. Has. To. Be. Real. And he does not care who knows it.. he likes her, he does not care about the attention nor will he hide from it. I like it. I like him now.

      • K.C. says:

        @Noname Same. I feel like I’m losing my mind but while everyone else is losing respect for him, I’m somehow liking him more. Because this is, objectively, not good for his image. It raises his profile but she’s from a different universe than him. Doesn’t look good to date a girl nine years your junior. Doesn’t look good to date a girl known for her tumultuous relationships. She might be super famous, but I’d guess a lot of guys don’t want to be involved with her because of her reputation. But he’s doing it anyway, when he could’ve easily raised his profile with a girl who is more “safe.” I like it.

    • LittlestRoman says:

      Ditto! I am honestly excited to see just how fantastically this flames out. One of my friends is rooting for a reality show a la Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The conversations would be worth the price of cable all by themselves.

  34. Grace says:

    One more day before the referendum. What should we call Tommy’s trying efforts after tomorrow?

  35. spidey says:

    So wouldn’t it be a let down if, when Tom flies of to Australia, they issue a joint message ” we were two single people having a bit of fun on a summer fling. Now it’s back to work.”?

    • K.C. says:

      Yes. I don’t want this to end.

    • anon says:

      Again you are so convinced this is going to be over in a week, how can you say that? It’s an actual question, I’m not being sarcastic or trying to mock you. But based on what you decided that as soon as he goes to Australia everything will be over? You don’t even know if he will be needed from day one.

    • Maria says:

      Taylor is going to buy a house in australia then.


        I don’t think she’ll buy a house in AU. But she’ll definitely rent one. After she flies him there in one of her private jets. Will she go to the set with him, too? Every day?
        I definitely need a new internet boyfriend. Sam Heughan is starting to look good. Also Tom Ellis. Any suggestions?

  36. Fa says:

    He is very desperate for Bond movie also T swift remind me Clooney before marriage he used to bring his contract girlfriends to his homes around the world after just 1 months of dating but for him they’re not the One

  37. Mira says:

    This explains everything!!

    Its always the nerds that turn into extra ambitious people in adulthood 🙂

    • spidey says:

      Actually it doesn’t it is just made up. Firstly, how often at school are you friends with other kids not in the same year and

      “His parents were in teaching and he wasn’t a cool kid.”

      Is just a blatant lie – neither of them were.

      • Mira says:

        Well thats him in the pictures no? He looks like a total geek at that point so i buy that part at least.

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Also he wasn’t a classroom boff at Eton, he was a rugger. Confirmed by people actually in class pictures with him, rather than anon sources who are apparently accuracy-deprived.

      • spidey says:

        Well that picture has been around for ever, and that and yes he went to Eton are about the only bits I believe. Funny how these “friends” never have a name.

        Call me a cynic if you want.

      • Mira says:

        It does say he was a rugger too. The guy is kind of a nerd still so wether you believe sources or not that bit is true no? I always feel like nerds grow up to be really ambitious. Not just Tom but Taylor and her ex Calvin were nerds too, they are both super ambitious.

      • Bethany says:

        Boffs, toffs, and ruggers? I am totally lost…

      • Sixer says:

        Boff = boffin = clever, studious person. Toff = posh person. Rugger = jock that plays rugby.

      • M.A.F. says:

        It also says his parents were in teaching. Neither one of them were teachers.

  38. K.C. says:

    This is the true Tiddles confirmation I’ve been waiting for. I’m ecstatic. They were spotted by fans at a concert, meaning they exist outside tabloid gossip land—you don’t go to a concert for PR, you go for a date. She was with her childhood best friend, too. THEY’RE REAL. It’s glorious.

    It’s hilarious she dragged him to a Selena concert. Cruel thing to do to your new boyfriend. Though I really don’t hold it against him that he went to a teenbopper concert—I’m lucky I’m not famous, because I’ve gone to some events for friends and loved ones that I wouldn’t want to be caught dead at. *shivers* Honestly though, make fun all you want, but a dude who’ll go to something important to you is a keeper. Guys who are too cool to go places with their girlfriends are ick.

    It IS amusing to watch Tumblr explode upon the realization the guy doesn’t just attend Shakespeare plays and nights at the opera. Lol.

        Ok, she wins, but ONLY because of the costume.

  39. TyrantDestroyed says:

    I don’t know why but I don’t believe in this relationship. I think he is there for the P.R. and she is trying to show Calvin Harris that she doesn’t need him and then he realizes what he has lost, comes back with a ring and Taylor finally lives her fantasy of being torn between two options…..

    • spidey says:

      I also have a suspicion that Taylor is playing a game.

    • kai says:

      You don’t go to a SElena Gomez concert in your free time solely for PR. Nah-ah. Unless she’s paying him ten million dollars, which I doubt. Tom’s into it.

    • LinaLamont says:

      I don’t know him.
      I don’t know if he’s intoxicated/motivated by her or the lifestyle/fame/money.
      Probably a combination of all of the above. When you’re having that much fun…who knows.

      He’s not particularly deep, but, from the little I know, his humanitarian work is admirable.

  40. Chetta B. says:

    “Very attached” and “texting all the time”, must be serious, eh? lol That’s surely a good solid basis for a strong relationship. How long have they been seeing each other? Three weeks?

    I guess if no Shakespeare, luxury perks will do. I wonder if they’ll do anything with his friends, or his intetests, or in his hometown?

    • Bethany says:

      before the RI pics he was spotted at a pizza place in NYC near her new apartment too.

  42. what's inside says:

    You really can’t make up this stuff it is so unbelievable. I just can’t buy into it.

  43. spidey says:

    How much of what is being reported in the tabloids do we actually believe?

    • Sixer says:

      Believing it is by the by, spidey. Laughing at it is EVERYTHING. However, I would point you towards the photographic and video evidence. Teehee.

    • K.C. says:

      I honestly haven’t read any articles about them except for here, because photos alone provide plenty of material. Great, beautiful material.

  44. Kate says:

    Gwen and Blake are more believable than these two.

  45. Phoebe says:

    Remember when your dad would drive you & your friends to a concert and have no idea who the singer is or had ever heard any of their songs but tries to dance and look cool?….

    • fanny says:

      Then Phoebe you should Watch the three seconds video on just jared in which you say Taylor while Tom is in the back and makes a short cameo to whisper something in Taylor’s ears.
      Seriously he’s strting to look like the babysitter.

  46. Grace says:

    Logistic issue, I don’t really follow the sightings so if someone can help.
    Wasn’t Tom reported being seen in London after the beach photos? Does this mean they went and let photos be taken on the beach, then Tom flew to London then flew out again for the concert?

    • browniecakes says:

      He needed to change his shirt and she has a private plane so….

    • lilacflowers says:

      Beach pictures were Tuesday. Dinner with pastry swans was Wednesday. Private air plane pictures were Thursday. Gym in New York pictures and afternoon return to hotel from meeting with what looked like a script pictures were Friday. Concert in Nashville on Tuesday.

    • Rebecca/Becky says:

      Grace, it was discussed on the beach photos thread. There was a vague Twitter sighting at the Aladdin theatre premiere on Weds pm with no pic, but there’s photo evidence Tom was in RI on Tues and Thurs pm. The Twitter guy was mistaken, he probably saw a lookalike.

    • Dara says:

      My personal feeling is they left NY not long after Hiddles did his gym outing/pap walk on Friday and they’ve been in Nashville since the weekend.

  47. Guest says:

    It is getting worse and worse…. Oh God, can you imagine someone like Hardy or Fassbender at a Selena Gomez concert? This whole two weeks just put me off of him, what happened to this guy? Don’t tell me he is having fun. You can have fun without embarassing yourself….

    • Sixer says:

      At a Selena Gomez concert doing FLAILING, no less!

    • EM says:

      I feel the same. It seems surreal.

    • LittlestRoman says:

      Excellent comparison to Fassbender/Hardy! I’ve also considered Cillian Murphy or even Ryan Gosling. There is a reason you don’t see those two and their private lives in the papers. They don’t want them there. Yes, Tom is with uber-famous Taylor Swift, but how many 35-year-olds do you know that would be 100% OK with going all full-frontal-media-assault within two weeks of dating? If they had started dating more naturally, as if *gasp* they were two adults, I wouldn’t have batted an eye. Her music is poppy and harmless and if that’s the kind of gal he’s into, more power to him. It’s this icky middle school vibe that’s grossing me out.

  48. sauvage says:

    I lost my first Hiddles crush a couple of years ago, when he re-tweeted Paulo Coelho. He then slowly wriggled his way back into my cold black heart over the years, but this is it. So, he’s just another fame-whore. Thanks, but no thanks.


    • browniecakes says:

      My Hiddles crush is over too, but I am having too much fun to look away.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Why is retweeting Paulo Coelho a bad thing? He’s a well respected author (wrote The Alchemist) as far as I know…

      • mp says:

        well respected? nope, people sort of make fun of him and his self help books. He sells a lot, like a lot of books, but that’s it.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        TommyAnnE is reportedly *heavily* into self-help, motivational speakers, and cheesy inspirational books whose titles sound like bumper stickers. I think the selling a lot of books thing is a plus in his book as well.

      • sauvage says:

        Well, personally, I think Paulo Coelho is The Devil. He writes superficial crap for the white middle-class who have never encountered anything seriously life-threatening.

        @InvaderTak: Since you mentioned “The Alchimist”… There’s one scene in it, if I remember correctly (I had to read the book for a university class, don’t ask), where a fisherman talks to the hero, right after a tsunami. House gone, boat gone, means to earn a living gone, wife and about five children to feed. Now what does he say, this good fisherman? What anybody would say in that situation, I assume. I’m paraphrasing: “It’s actually really cool that this happened! I always wanted to travel, and now God forced my hand! I was too comfortable here anyway. Now I can go somewhere else to seek my fortune!”

        No mention of his family, obviously, because he’s in full-blown wanderlust mode, as you are.

        Did I say white middle-class without serious problems? Because, with Paulo Coelho, the moral always is: Follow your dream!

        Dreams are great, as long as they are somewhat realistic (I prefer calling those plans), and nobody gets hurt (starving children don’t fit that bill, in my book, which, obviously, isn’t “The Alchimist”).

        Okay, rant over.

      • Sixer says:

        LOL @ sauvage. I feel much the same about The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I had to read it for a book club once and was veritably frothing by the end.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        God I am sooo glad to hear that you guys hate these books as much as I do. It’s not just me! I tried reading The Alchemist. I couldn’t get past the blurb in The Secret.

        Fwiw, TommyAnnE’s love of all of this turgid crap that passes as spiritual wisdom is a big reason why I have always doubted his cred as a thinker.

        Is this really the end result of Eton/Cambridge/Rada? Seriously? Someone who believes in The Secret, longs for Taylor Swift and wants to be an underwear model?

      • mp says:

        worst thing is, all highschools here practically make you read the freaking alchemist book, i mean, what for???? I only read Veronika decies to die (i read it on spanish, so i don’t know the correct translation to english), and I was so mad i wasted time on it, i was ranting like for a whole week an even to this day I always tell my experience ahahahaha 😀

    • Miss M says:

      @ sauvage: You are awesome! O cannot stand Paulo Coelho. There were many Inknew reading his books when I was growing up. So, i gave it a try at the age of 11 and thought it was pure sh!te… My mom had worned me, but I still tried. Lol

      • sauvage says:

        Miss M, I am SO PROUD of your eleven-year-old self for already seeing through that sh*t at such a young age! I have high hopes for you! 🙂

  49. kri says:

    I wonder how TH felt when when one of the 13 yr.olds at the concert turned to her mother and said “That girl’s dad looks like Loki”.

    • Julia says:

      At least he could change that stupid blue shirt he’s always wearing and put on something more “juvenile”…he looks like a grandpa…taylor needs to restyle him!! LMAO!!

  50. M.A.F. says:

    He is suppose to be in that last clip?

    Still to early for this. I need coffee. And better pictures.

    • popup says:

      HAHAHA. Break-up insurance. This union is the best.

    • M.A.F. says:

      What the actual f***?

      • spidey says:

        Thought that would raise a few eyebrows. But it is not of course twiddles taking out the insurance, but the Chinese fans.

        I suppose it is an alternative to betting which isn’t allowed in China I believe.

  51. Meee4 says:

    What I’m really wondering is how the narrative may change when they ( if they) spend time in London. Will she still dictate their moves or does he finally get to show what he’s made of,

    • K.C. says:

      The girl loves all things British (including her men). I have no doubt she’ll partake in whatever English events he wants to go to or traditions he wants to engage in. Tea for two? Seriously though, it makes sense she’d take him to her hotspots in the U.S. and he’d share his U.K. hotspots with her. It’s possible to enjoy a pop concert and appreciate more sophisticated entertainment, too.

      The guy is best known for being in a Marvel movie. He was in the Muppet movie and provided his voice for a Tinkerbell straight-to-DVD movie. He’s very talented and has done some great more mature work, but I think it’s important to acknowledge that he seems more than capable of loosening up. He’s not really above it all when it comes to Taylor’s interests.

      • Meee4 says:

        I fully get your point and one would really hope so, but I still think she’s running the show. I think we’ll be seeing things we don’t see him do. Even in his own hood. That is just my opinion.
        Even though one can argue the narrative is because he’s in her playing field there still has not been anyone on his side saying how deeply in love he is and its all real,. It still seems all about her at this point. But maybe that will change. But we’ll need to wait until fall when he stops filming to get a real sense. It will be hard to say when he’s in OZ because that is neither of their zones.

      • K.C. says:

        Also, the media understandably would want to focus more on Taylor than Tom at this point. Everyone wants to know how she feels in a relationship because she’s the much better known person of the two of them, the person who just got out of a relationship, and the person who has made a name for herself writing about her boyfriends. So would a tabloid really care to either make up sources or use “secret” PR sources on how smitten he is with her? Eh, probably not as much. That doesn’t really surprise me.

  52. One2 says:

    I can’t watch her dance. Did he look into her at the concert? Not like how pharell side eyed her dancing at that one awards show.

  53. “She felt like she was a little school girl with a huge crush. She loves the fact that Tom acts like such a mature man.”

    Yep, that pretty much sums up everyones impression of Taylor & Tom. She’s still a little girl emotionally and he’s a grown ass, albeit insatiably thirsty, man. I never would have pictured Tom Hiddleston voluntarily attending a Selena Gomez concert unless it were for charity. He has said one of his favorite musical acts of all time is Simon & Garfunkel. He looks so out of place with Taylor & her friends at Selena’s concert. It’s like he’s the chaperone & designated driver for the kids at the show.

    • kai says:

      Your mention of Simon&Garfunkel reminds me of Zachary Quinto talking about his younger boyfriend. (I think their age difference is even a bit bigger?)


      Let’s see if Tom can be this cool about it.

    • Miss S says:

      Even the wording of that is telling. How can a huge crush be “the one”? Those are different things and even when someone feels that, most don’t even say it out loud not to jinkx it! Even less to the world media!

    • sunny says:

      Hiddles is thirsty as hell but I kind of love this! Clearly this whole thing is orchestrated… he needs the boost in his desperate attempt to raise his profile to secure Bond, and she wants to look like she has upgraded post-Clavin. That being said, they are both twee, craven for attention, and shamelessly entertaining. She is a huge star with great visibility and he is a genuinely talented actor. It is a great PR stunt for both of them and so entertaining.

      What’s next a Disney date? Taylor bakes for him? The 4th of July party with him on a swan? I cannot wait to find out. This shit is hysterical.

      I would love to know what their conversations look like? If you have listened to in depth interviews with Hiddles, he is very smart and while I believe Taylor is very shrewd she never seems particularly intellectual. I cannot see them talking literature, or politics, and anything of any depth. How will he deal with her vapid friends? Will he introduce her to his friends? This relationship is fascinating. I mean, can you imagine more shots of Hiddles at events such as the Selena concert?

  54. d says:

    Personally, I think this is all orchestrated as a career move on both their parts, and actually more for Hiddleston than for Swift, but I can’t help but wonder if in the long run it’s going to make much of a difference for him. I mean, did it really do anything more or less for Jake G? Or maybe I’m just irritated at all the PR when it just seems so manufactured, but then again I guess I don’t have to read it.

    • Kitty says:

      Well this career move is hurting them

      • d says:

        Oh I agree and I think it might hurt Hiddleston`s more than Swift`s.

      • Mira says:

        She will be fine. She’s done this a million times before with other guys. This is what people more or less expect from her. Him, i don’t know, every place i visit are laughing at him (not her so much because they have come to expect this from her).

      • Mr. Balls says:

        What we’re seeing is classic TSwizzle, her image isn’t dinged at all. In fact, she’s being lauded in the press for finding someone older, more mature and showing Calvin she’s moved on.

        Tom is the one whose image is undergoing a complete overhaul. He’s the one on record saying that the circus of being a celebrity was something he wasn’t interested in in a 2013 Collider interview. The Thornfield ladies mocked him here on that post, I remember. Fans who were attracted to his prior image are now losing their ladyboners. He has a lot more risk than Taylor has when it comes to how he’s remembered when this relationship self destructs.

        But I’m enjoying the fun while it lasts. This is the most exciting his posts have ever been!

        -Noix Balles

  55. mazzie says:

    Such a PR move but I wonder if Swifty just doesn’t like being single or perceived as single. Or she just really needs relationships to write songs

  56. EM says:

    It will all end in tears.

  57. Svetlana says:

    Grown up 35 year old men lost his head over a 20 something young blond hottie and he just doesn’t care what everybody’s saying. What’s so unbelievable about that? It happens all the time. The only difference here is that a young blond hottie happens to be a global pop star.

    Btw, he’s really outdone himself, AGAIN! Dad dancing at Selena Gomez concert. I love it, I just love it:-):-):-)

    • Miss S says:

      I also don’t make a big deal out of it, being silly is fun. This becomes only problematic when media adds “Tom wanted to please Taylor and show that her friends matter to him as well, so he danced along to the tune of Same Old Love”. It’s vomit inducing. Why can’t they do their thing without “sources” trying to shape the narrative.

      I don’t believe her Team isn’t behind this. What can be cute and adorable, coming from them in a context of a PR machine just comes across as contrived and fake. And if they are not in control of any of what’s coming out, then her PR people are incompetent, which I don’t believe.

      • Guesto says:

        On the contrary, the “Tom wanted to please Taylor and show that her friends matter to him as well, so he danced along to the tune of Same Old Love” is what makes it so deliciously entertaining. 😀

        I know it’s probably hard for fans of the Tom-That-Was to come to terms with the Tom-That-Is but, speaking as a non-fan, this really is an infinitely more palatable and likeable Tom than the Tom that’s being mourned.

        Maybe embrace it? And see where it goes?

      • Miss S says:

        My disdain for this has nothing to do with disappointment coming from a fan (the only film of his that I’ve seen was Crimson Peak), it just bothers me to see people who are apparently good actors getting all celebrity circus friendly, being part of PR strategies that go beyond the natural promotion of their projects. When an actor uses his personal life to increase his status it makes him/her less professional to my eyes. I deeply hate that sort of approach. If someone like Cillian Murphy did something like this it would totally discredit him as I see it.

        I still see this as entertaining and distracting (I’m hiding here as my national team is playing on the Euro:D) but in the middle of all the mocking I can’t help feeling annoyed. It’s not really about them thought, it’s the whole PR culture that we live in that gets me I guess.

        Well, when’s the marriage? ^_^

      • Sixer says:

        If Cillian Murphy did this, I would NOT LAUGH. My tears would not be tears of joy.

      • Miss S says:

        @Sixer, yeah, I wouldn’t mock him. I would just cry in a corner. I respect him SO MUCH as an actor. Just to think of “Breakfast on Pluto” I feel like crying. It’s almost like that difference between artists and entertainers, he is an artist and doesn’t need an Oscar to prove it.

      • Sixer says:

        I think I would cry in a corner, too.

        I mean, I’ve only ever thought LEGS talked the integrity talk. I never thought he walked it. I seldom believe any of my internet boyfriends do – I only want them to lust after and/or laugh at, so I don’t much care. So long as they look good and make me laugh (at or with them, not bothered), I’m happy.

        But I actually believe in the decency of Alien Beauty.

      • Miss S says:

        Alien Beauty <3

      • lilacflowers says:

        @Sixer, not questioning the integrity of Alien Beauty; I do believe he has it.

        But he has gifted us with pictures!


      • LittlestRoman says:

        I’m afraid to contemplate how much alcohol I would drink if Cillian Murphy ever did something like this.

      • Sixer says:

        Ha. Knicker pictures. They’re ok. NOT PAPER!

    • KittyKat says:

      He looks like those funny photos of dads at teenage daughter concert. Miserable and making a slight attempt to nod along otherwise it would cause problems.

    • I see where there’d be an attraction of similarities but it’s more like if Tom Hiddleston had a daughter, she’d be Taylor Swift (not the megastar but regular girl), only not stuck at 16 emotionally when she’s now 26.

      As thirsty as he is, I do think he’s into her in a nerd-on-nerd attraction. So let him ride it out, pun intend, and see how it ends. He’s intellectual about things she isn’t. She can be smart in her field of music, marketing & pr but she also likes to live her life on instagram and seems to thrive & need public attention to live.

      Do I think Tom would like attention in order to be more famous to show his craft, yes. The nerd attraction may fizzle once the newness of the relationship wears off and her need for all girl slumber parties, victimhood, and a life on instagram plays out. Or the may gladly join in.

  58. Miss S says:

    If they got together and kept it on the low without showing off or trying to control the media narrative I don’t think most people will be put off by this. It would still be weird, but they are adults, who cares? Looking at most comments since this started, the real issue is how they are milking it PR wise. And if this is expected from her, it’s not expected from a serious actor (that’s how we saw him), at least most of us see serious actors as committed to the work and not with the media showoff, they work with that side of their job when promoting the work, but keep their privacy away from that. Don’t engage with it.

    The fan videos that are coming up now and the articles showing the assumed staged photos of Taylor’s different relationships and those who talk about “Who is Taylor’s boyfriend” are just a consequence of what they started. She is Taylor Swift, she knows very well what she is doing and any problem she or Tom may say to have about any of this will be ridiculed.

    • FW says:

      Movie/TV have a lead time of how long? 1 year at least. stage work is not even widely available for the general mass. but pap walk/staged photo-op can be done on daily basis. i now develope a habbit of watching euro cup and wait for more Tiddles pap walk. perfect;)

      • Miss S says:

        But tv/films and stage bring admiration and credibility. Pap walks not so much…

        My national team just passed. I’m seeing now Belgium with Switzerland:D

      • FW says:

        @Miss S: not sure “admiration and credibility” will lead to fame and $$$$$.and congratulations to your national team! i’m so glad for Iceland

  59. Mira says:

    So hes basically hes been to 3 of her homes in 3 different states in a week? He is literally just following her around and touring her homes lol.

    • Meee4 says:

      Perhaps he can write another editorial “What I did on my summer vacation – A very well thought out essay” by Taylor Swift’s boyfriend a.k a. T.W.Hiddleston.

      He can give us just the facts.

  60. Bread and Circuses says:

    I actually think they’re a great match; they both love attention and are equally twee. Maybe he IS The One! 😀

    • browniecakes says:

      PDA! She had a bf as recently as weeks ago, he had a gf how long ago if the EO thing was not a thing? Quite a while. I think TH is thinking with the paper doll inside the paper knickers currently.
      She is literally side-eyeing us in that picture. I love it.

  61. KittyKat says:

    I’ve watched these fan videos and have come off with the same conclusion as others. It’s showing this relationship is more fake that only teenagers will believe.
    In most of the videos she’s dancing with her friends and he’s at the back somewhere but when she realises she’s been spotted she drags Hidds out and is all over him whilst looking around making sure that they’re all watching them.
    He looks miserable like he wants to be elsewhere until he sees the cameras on him. He doesn’t even try with her friends

    • Miss S says:

      I saw that, but thought I was just trying to find an issue with it… But could she see who was filming her from the crowd?

      • Kittykat says:

        The fans that could see her. In the zoomed in video from far away he’s nowhere to be seen. Have you seen the one of he waving to fans and then like magic he’s suddenly there.

        These videos convinced me its all fake

      • Miss S says:

        I mean, it’s real, I guess the “fake” means that it is forced? Contrived?

    • K.C. says:

      I think the fan videos are proving that their relationship is legit, not fake. I get that they’d be conscious about the cameras, but they were filmed throughout the entire concert for the most part all over each other. From the few I’ve seen he wasn’t at her side once and rejoined her, but it didn’t look like it correlated with her spotting someone filming them.

      IDK, I just don’t think you go to a dimly-lit concert for show.

      • Kittykat says:

        Are you watching the same video because most of them is of her dancing with her friends

      • Miss S says:

        I saw 3 videos that were posted on ONYD and he wasn’t there all the time, no. Her friend with the purple dress is a bit possessed, I liked that hahaha

        (Selena’s music is really bad, isn’t it?) ^_^

      • FW says:

        not for show? there are HQ pics when they leave the concert. no, not pap walk at all;)

      • K.C. says:

        @Kittykat hard to keep track of the videos but I think he was only totally missing from one that I saw. Even in far away, zoomed-in ones he was dancing with her. But your view of the concert is a fair one–when I saw those videos I thought they looked pretty real together, but I could very well be wrong. 🙂

        @FW Just saw those HQ pics after! Didn’t spot them at first.

    • Noname says:

      You are reading way to much into this kittykat.. way too much.

      I watched the video at the Met Gala and this one.. and I am coming away with a totally different reaction. Just because something is for PR does not mean it’s fake. He went to a Selena Gomez concert… no one does this for a fake relationship.. give me a break.

      And I must point out if he wasn’t into it, he wouldn’t have even gone to the concert.

      And you can go for pap walks and still be very real. It means that a) they both love the attention and b) want everyone to know that they are dating.

  62. LinaLamont says:

    I’m new to this. I only know what I’ve read here about TH.
    I predict a wedding sooner rather than later.
    Isn’t this what he wanted all along? Didn’t he hit the jackpot?
    Thank you for this site and al the comments and the escape from the reality of the real news that’s going on here in the U.S.
    P.S. from reading all the snark/comments/timelines, it appears that TS was instrumental in getting Wintour to invite TH to dinner and the Met Gala. No?

    • Miss S says:

      “Thank you for this site and al the comments and the escape from the reality of the real news that’s going on here in the U.S.” YES. Europe needs it too:/

      I have no idea about your question. The official story tells us that they met at the Met gala, probably the day before because Anna Wintour offers her own dinner or something like that.

      • LinaLamont says:

        I thought I’d read that she’d had her eyes on him/was aware of him for awhile before their official meeting.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Wintour is active in the London theater scene and has known him for years. This was the first time in several years he wasn’t on location filming something at the time of the gala.

  63. browniecakes says:

    Taylor is the female Clooney. It’s actually cool to me that Taylor is the prince in this Disney fairytale. Tom is not the ONE, none of them are, and she will see her parents, her friends, her cats and anyone else as it is convenient and bf can just tag along and smile for the selfie.

    • Chels says:

      She been dumped by pretty much every guy she dated. She thinks every guy is “the one”. Sounds like the opposite of clooney,

  64. supposedtobeworking says:

    I’ve been married 16 years to a super great guy whom I adore, but I would LOVE to have that rush of new love again. And if I had numerous fancy houses, a private plane and friends putting on concerts, I would do this exact thing. Without the cameras.

  65. browniecakes says:

    A tweet said Joe Jonas was at the Selena concert last night too. Has Tay reached a saturation point of exes that it is now not possible to not bump into one in public?

    Honestly this relationship just keeps getting better and better.

    Meanwhile Jane, Lizzy and I are enjoying our new favorite drink “The Painkiller” and invite you all to join us as we watch the “Three faces of Tom”.


    Is her Nashville penthouse really decked out in Alice in wonderland decor? If so, I might have been willing to sell an internal organ to be there to see TommyAnnE’s reaction to it.

    • Bethany says:

      I thought the same thing. IIRC there’s one room where there’s either a sofa or a bed inside of, like, a gigantic birdcage or something? I may be making that up but that’s my impression of the decor there, lol. She’s young. If I’d had $$$ to decorate when I was 20 or so, I shudder to think of what I’d have come up with.

      • Lex says:

        @Bethany She’s going to be 27, not 20. She’s not that young. And hire a decorator if you don’t know what you’re doing!


        Agreed Bethany. She may be 26 but mentally I think she’s still much younger. If that’s the real decor she should hire a professional. My dorm room in college could best be described as “Early Nothing.”

      Her LA house wasn’t much to write home about either, or rather it was all too much. I enjoy good celeb-home porn, and I was left decidedly unsatisfied after watching her Vogue video – for multiple reasons – but her decorating choices (or her decorator’s choices) really had me scratching my head. Then I read about her Nashville penthouse and threw up a little in my mouth. Read a little about here http://www.vulture.com/2013/11/taylor-swift-reigning-queen-of-pop.html
      Now i’m curious about what her renovated NYC pad will look like.

  68. Chels says:

    LOL this is SO Taylor! She’s carrying on in this public way to stick it to Calvin who dumped her.She tried to do the same when Harry Styles dumped her. Her chosen next boyfriend then was Douglas Booth. Douglas didn’t want to be her rebound, he rejected her when he realised she was calling the paps.
    This guy should know better isn’t he 35? He is either really inexperienced with women or in a mid life crisis. He’s acting like a love struck puppy. It’s a bit creepy because he looks like he could be her dad.

  69. browniecakes says:

    Will the producers of the Bond movies give Tom the role already so this madness can end? Actually, can they wait a few weeks before doing that, because I really want to see pictures of Tom wearing a “T Heart T” t-shirt while pushing Taylor’s cats in a stroller – dlisted.

    The One right now..just in time for summer…then she’ll need a winter fling to cuddle to

  71. Chels says:

    I can’t wait for them to go on a double date with Gigi and Zayn! Especially since everyone in this site thought the sun shines out of this dudes ass were as zayn was supposedly such a bad person.😜

  72. PastryPuff says:

    I can’t help but wonder at what point during the concert did he think to himself ‘I’ve made a terrible mistake’

  73. qtpi says:

    I’m embarrassed for him.

    • Miss Melissa says:

      God help me for saying this, but they come across as a Dad taking his tween to a rock concert. Hard to unsee.

      The pics of the two of them talking to Gigi Hadid at the Met gala struck me the same way.

  74. Svetlana says:

    As I’ve said before, non of these antics will hurt his carrier. Hell, it will bring him even more blockbuster roles, media attention and magazine photoshootings. The only people hurting here are his loyal fans who were mislead to believe that his public persona was genuine an that he’ s different from everybody else in Hollywood. That guy’s gone, actually he never existed. Please accept my deepest condolences:( Maybe it’s time you accept the real Hiddleston or just “shake, shake him off” . There, I never ever in my life thought I’ll quote Taylor Swift !

    • Julia says:

      True! I agree!

    • Chels says:

      He’s probably always been like this. you are mistaken if you think he will get leading parts in blockbusters because of Taylor though. They cast on who screen tests well, who has good box office numbers. Apart from playing some teenage girls dad or teacher he doesn’t fit into the type of movies made for Taylor’s teen fans. He’s going to be up for grown men parts and that type of audience won’t go to the cinema just to watch Taylor swifts boyfriend. He’ll get more invites to the AList, parties and people for sure. He can make money from appearance and perhaps advertising. He can network once he’s mingling with a list people: . But it doesn’t not mean he will get the parts. It depends who the studio and producers think will make them money.

      • Svetlana says:

        Not because of Taylor, of course, but because of the general media attention he seems to generate lately ( don’t you remember The Night manager naked butt media frenzy, the Bond rummors, his naked scene in High Rise, self promotion american press tour….it’s not all about Taylor Swift….or he’ll just turn into another Orlando Bloom:-)

  75. jammypants says:

    “She was ready to move on, you guys. And when she saw Tom’s flailing at the Met Gala, she thought ‘YES THIS IS THE ONE.'”

    Kaiser, stop! I just had my lunch, hahahaha

  76. Robin says:

    It looks like she’s stolen Anna Wintour’s wig.

  77. JRenee says:

    Such funny comments. You all are cracking me up.

  78. Ninette says:

    I hope Tom takes Taylor to a shakespeare play… that would be amazing!!!

    • Felice. says:

      or Sigur Ros

      • FW says:

        Please no Sigur Ros…Everything about Sigur Ros is SACRED! something has to remain SACRED!

      • Felice. says:

        Yeah but he loves Sigur Ros and they’re touring in NA finally. She’s showing him all the stuff he likes and now he should do the same thing. Otherwise it’s kinda one sided and won’t last long…oh wait.

      • Grace says:

        Does he even listen to post-rock?

        Edit: I saw the reply.

  79. lindy79 says:

    The DM has “smitten” pictures leaving the arena.

    • Me says:

      Saw them too. Smug. New boyfriend, new boobs. Or a fantastic push up. As for him: he is loving the spotlight. That smile.

  80. Kimbers says:

    Too lazy to google who tom hiddlesen is. Never seen him in a movie. All i can go on is his looks and he’s not cute, sexy or hot. Why couldnt she get someone hot to fake date instead of these dorks!?!?!? Yes Adam looks like a dork with his lil man body.

  81. Me says:

    Anyone remember Olsen’s interview in which she was gushing over Taylor and how awestruck she was when she met Taylor? This is funny, considering the fact that he probably banged both.

    • Mira says:

      Olsen always denied it. Unless she was desperate to not be seen with him I don’t think they actually were together. Because she had no problem being seen with her previous boyfriend and Tom clearly has no problem being seen with Taylor so this idea that he is so private doesn’t work anymore.


    This pairing is so mystifying to me that I think it needs it’s own anthem. Since TommyAnnE likes the Stones, perhaps Mick and Keith could be persuaded to write something. I already have the title.
    “Get Off My Conda”

    Or perhaps a documentary.

        Nooooooooooo! How can you?! I love that song! TnT a lot of T but probably can’t even make proper tea CANNOT HAVE IT!

        If you let them have it, I will curl into a little ball and cry through the night and cry every night. We don’t want that to happen, do we? 🙂

  83. Felice. says:

    Calvin Harris is following her on IG and Twitter again. It’s about to escalate 😀

  84. Keaton says:

    Here is my (probably) unpopular opinion: If Taylor wasn’t super wealthy, famous and powerful in the entertainment industry I don’t think Tom would give her a second look. This makes me pity her and dislike him.

    You could say the same for him to a degree. That is, Taylor would never date an average Joe. There’s no doubt she wants someone at least semi-famous and successful. But I can at least see how his English accent, charm and manners; and his veneer of being cultured could win her over. I see why she would at least be attracted to a guy like Tom even if he wasn’t “Tumblr’s boyfriend.” But truthfully (and this sounds super mean I know) what does Taylor really have going for her? What makes her outstanding? Isn’t Taylor’s whole schtick that she’s the epitome of BASIC?
    She’s not cultured or literate. She’s not a moron but she’s not an intellectual – not even a pseudo intellectual hipster ala Kirsten Stewart. She’s pretty but she’s far from a stunning beauty. She is nice but she’s not like a dedicated humanitarian ala Angelina Jolie. SHE’S NOT SEXY AT ALL (Hell I can see why men lose their shit over the likes of say Blake Lively before someone like Taylor). What I think makes Taylor outstanding and unusual is her ability to craft a catchy pop song and her shrewd business sense. I really doubt Tom is with her due to those things. I dunno but the more stuff comes out about this the more I am side-eyeing him. And it makes me feel really sorry for her. My guess is he finds her attractive ENOUGH but he’s mainly into the lifestyle, the fame, the attention, etc. I don’t buy it’s “true love” and he magically fell in love with her after the MET Ball.
    *ducks from the incoming fire*

    • Christin says:

      No fire here. I generally agree with your assessment.

      • Keaton says:

        Thanks @Christin
        Thinking about this further – I guess Tiddles could be seen as a gender role reversal That is, we’re used to seeing women drawn to otherwise average (or even below average) men simply because those men are powerful and successful. Maybe that’s exactly what’s going on here. If I don’t pity those men (judge those women) I probably shouldn’t pity Taylor (judge Tom). :/

    • Miss Melissa says:

      Spot on.

    • afriendofafriend says:

      Agreed. If you go back and look at the still photos from the Met gala, Tom seems most fascinated by Gigi Hadid. He’s staring at her in a really creepy way, while she’s looking at Taylor. Photos only capture a moment, but it stood out to me.

      And I still remember when he did that magazine editorial with Cara Delevigne (speaking of creepy — we all thought he looked way too old even then — like a Svengali character — and now this???). After the photoshoot, he followed Cara on Twitter and fawned over her in a tweet when the piece was published, but she never followed him or acknowledged him in any way. In my own twisted narrative, I imagined him as desperately wanting to be noticed by the cool girl but being ignored. Taylor’s not the cool girl, but close enough to the cool girls to be an acceptable substitute (and bonus — $$$$$$$). Just a thought.

      • Mira says:

        I can see where you guys are coming from i also have thought that part of the fascination is that she is such a big name. Sort of an ego trip thing for a former nerd, look i can pull the leader of the mean girl squad. As if this somehow makes him cool.
        Funnily enough, US mag says he has been looking to settle down. But she is “trying to get over Calvin” and that Hiddleston persued her hard.

    • Pixelated says:

      @Keaton ITA. No fire from me. The only thing I don’t totally agree with you on is that I don’t feel sorry for Taylor AT ALL. She is 26 (same age as me) and has chosen this life for herself. I think that the older she gets, the more tween audience she will lose and the more she will need to rebrand herself. Imagine an NPR interview with her in say, 30 years. ‘So, Taylor, you were famous for writing catchy pop song, dating a slew of men, petting cats and randomly giving gifts to your fans?” Who is going to care about that? Sure, she has time to evolve, but for with all of her money and opportunities, I’m really rooting for her to push herself into ditching the tween image and giving us more of an ‘authentic’ Taylor. One that shows her humanitarian side, (like Angie, as you mentioned) or perhaps, starting, very publicly, a foundation for kids who want to play music. She needs rebranding, and fast. Or she risks becoming irrelevant and average.

  85. seesittellsit says:

    Lawd, he has so sunk in my estimation. I don’t know what makes him look worse: doing this as PR or really liking her.

    • LittlestRoman says:

      I keep flip-flopping on that last point. Having said that, I’m not sure he’s a good enough actor to sell this relationship convincingly for PR’s sake. And I’m almost totally sure he’s enough of a goober to like her, though mostly for the benefits of her lifestyle. He’s always been a circus bear, but I really liked his veneer of respectability while it lasted.

  86. jen says:

    today his publicist followed her on social media . i think he has a lot of love to give and anyone will do.

  87. MI6 says:

    This breakup is going to be AWESOME

    • Grace says:

      You mean the dish song?

      • MI6 says:

        The entire thing. EPIC. I can’t wait
        And this from today’s Paris Review:
        “Taylor’s career is, in fact, the perfected realization of every writer’s narrowest dream: To get back at those who had wronged us, sharply and loudly, and then to be able to cry innocent that our intentions were anything other than poetic and pure. Most of us can only achieve this with small asides. Taylor not only publicly dates and publicly breaks up, but she then releases an achingly specific song about the relationship—and that song has an unforgettable hook—all the while swearing she won’t talk about relationships that are over. Yes, date Taylor Swift, and not only will she shit on you on her album, but the song will become a single, then a hit, and then you will hear yourself shat upon by an army of young women at Staples Center. And then she’ll deny that she was ever doing anything other than righteously manifesting her art. It’s diabolical, and for a lifelong passive-aggressive like me, it’s made her my hero. “

      After the first 7 seconds when she says, ‘over the next six hours you will learn…’ I stopped and started it over for the people around me. Priceless.

    Yes he is the one….millionth.

    Totally agree with MI6; this breakup will be popcorn-worthy!!!

  91. Miss Jupitero says:

    I think even the break up is already planned by thePR teams. This whole thing is crass and distaste fully manipulative. I always thought hat there was less to Hiddles than meets the eye, but this thirst to be a product for consumption is just whacked.


      I feel sorry for the Thor cast and crew. Undoubtedly she’ll fly him there, be there with him on the set every day, wanting a cameo appearance or a chance to compose and sing Loki’s Theme.
      Yarg. I’m making myself sick.

      • LittlestRoman says:

        I read this on another site (name’s evading me, everything is one hilarious blur), but someone suggested that Chris Hemsworth might have an amazing prank opportunity involving those ghastly white boxer photos blown to epic proportions. Can you imagine the look on poor widdle Tay Tay’s face? Oh god.

  92. what's inside says:

    Does he kind of remind anyone else of Justin Theroux in a parallel universe?

  93. Abby_J says:

    I showed my husband some of the video from the concert, and he said, “Awwww…..That is exactly how I felt when I took my niece and her friends to the Demi Lovato concert two years ago!” (his brother had to go out of town and his wife was home with a new baby. The concert was for her birthday so hubby went instead).”

    He looks like an awkward Dad who took his kid to a concert.

  94. Sway says:

    Wow, she sure moves SWIFTly…

  95. spidey says:

    The only hope Tom has of coming out of this alive is if, when he disappears to Oz, it finishes and they can sell it as a bit of a summer fling they both enjoyed in their down time.
