Taylor Swift allegedly wants to get with Zac Efron now that Tiddles Is Over


Here are some photos of The Artist Formerly Known As Snake Emoji out and about in New York yesterday. Taylor Swift was seemingly aiming for a chic French-inspired look, or so the fashion-blogs suggest. Would a French woman pair a striped dress (dress ID: After Party by Nasty Gal) with those brown Michael Kors loafers though? I just have such an aversion to pairing brown shoes with a black-and-white ensemble. That pairing NEVER looks good. Think of how cute this dress would have looked with some black sandals. Tay-Tay is also doing something different with her hair, I think: the bangs look different, feathery. And she seems to have gone a few shades blonder.

Now that we’re a week and a half removed from The Glorious Tiddlesplit of 2016, it’s time for Taylor Swift to “move on with a new man,” or so the tabloids would have us believe. According to In Touch Weekly, Tay is already trying to set up her new boyfriend (contract). Zac Efron?!

Taylor Swift may find herself a new boyfriend soon. Just a week after she broke up with Tom Hiddleston, a new report claims that the former country darling has set her sights on another famous and hunky actor Zac Efron.

“[Swift] has been talking about him nonstop since her breakup with Tom,” a source told In Touch. “She’s always said she feels a strong connection to Zac, but could never act on it because they’ve always been dating other people.”

The source went on to reveal that Swift had asked him to hang out with her sometime. “Taylor and Zac have always been pretty flirty with each other,” the source shared. “She’s reached out to Zac and told him that they should hang out and maybe go to dinner together, and he’s into it. It just hasn’t happened yet because of their schedules.”

This isn’t the first time Swift and Efron have been rumored dating. Numeorus news outlet reported that the two were in a relationship back in 2012 after they worked together on “The Lorax” and were spotted having a “flirty dinner.” Swift then denied the romance rumors.

To me, putting Efron and Swift together just makes TOO much sense. Like, obviously they would be well-suited for each other and for each other’s purposes. But if Tiddles has shown us anything, it’s that Taylor Swift shoots for the moon! Zac Efron isn’t famous enough for her purposes, let’s face it.

Last thing: Gigi Hadid was asked by ES Magazine why both she (Gigi) and Taylor both seem to have a thing for British men. Gigi’s answer? “Well, I think we both like the British sense of charm.” Hm… British sense of humor, sure, I get that. But “British sense of charm”??

    So she wants to make a career out of bearding, then?

    • Donna says:

      This made me laugh; it was my first thought immediately upon reading the headline too, but your wording says it better, lol!

    • Mona says:

      That was my first thought too…

    • seesittellsit says:

      @ladysussex – THIS . . . . it’s gotten to the point where her “relationships” are a tacit outing of the man in question – oh feckless silly Hiddleston! What amazes me is how few people are willing to connect the dots back to . . . her, and her “Girl Squad”.

    • Anthi says:

      Yes, this 100%!

    • Chaz says:

      @Ladysussex Couldn’t have said it better myself. I don’t think his bf will like it. The scrutiny is more likely to expose his fun in the closet.

      Is she picking them or does she just have a group of high school girls doing her PR and fixing?

    • matchstick says:

      she already has…..(made a career/albums out of bearding)

      harry styles, taylor lautner, jake gyllenhaal, tom hiddleston
      all have the common denominator.

      she should be careful…this is gonna blow up in her face, and it could be in a big way…like, homophobic way.

    • Mary Mary says:

      Run, Zac, run….swiftly away :)

    • Sean says:

      I think it is more mutual bearding now.

  2. paolanqar says:

    she’s like a praying manta. at the end of a relationship she discards the ex bf’s shell all over the media and moves on to the next victim.

    Just be alone for a while ffs!

    • detritus says:

      Interesting (may not) factoid:
      Female praying mantises became more aggressive because natural selection encouraged aggression in the population.
      So now male praying mantises have to sneak up on the lady of their dreams, otherwise she will eat his head before he even get a chance.

      Also, some female spiders will get mad if you don’t dance well enough and will then eat you.

      Which was Hiddleston’s problem, not sneaking around quietly enough or not dancing to the tune well enough?

    • Tanah says:

      The disarming way she ALWAYS knows where the camera is, freaks me out a bit. Your praying mantis theory would explain it!

  3. emmyb1608 says:

    Okay Taylor.

    And to some American women, a part of the English charm IS the accent (apparently)

    • bettyrose says:

      The accent is a huge part of the appeal. I have no idea why, though. The world is full of accents that I find interesting, but only the English accent drives me into a frenzy. What possible evolutionary purpose could there be to finding an accent irresistibly sexy? (and, yeah, all English accents. I realize there are a zillion varieties).

  4. Jess says:

    Zac Efron is not famous enough for her let’s be real.
    Also, she and Efron are already acquaintances. It’s a pairing that doesn’t make sense

    But I wouldn’t mind if she was seen with a new man soon. I don’t agree with the “she needs to stay single for a while” idea. She needs to do whatever she feels like doing.

    Her ex , Calvin Harris, is seeing three girls (nothing serious according to E! News) and that’s great and good for him. But the double standards irk me. Imagine if a woman (Taylor or whoever!) would do that. Sl*t is only the beginning of what people and the media would call her

    • Flowerchild says:

      We don’t know if Calvin had a thing with the third girl there was no proof just tabloid say don’t know about the other two. Does the double standard irk you or is it just because you think it’s being use against Taylor that irks you.

      • Jess says:

        It’s the double standard. I couldn’t care less who TS dates. But the fact that if a man is seen with a different woman every month he is not really criticised, but a woman is called horrible names by SJW and basically everybody really irks me.

        And it’s not only because they are famous. It happens in our everyday lives too. I’m a professional 25 years old woman, terrified of commitment and who enjoys dating around. You have no idea what I’ve heard about myself. And that does not happen to my male friends who do the same thing as I do.

      • Hannah says:

        There’s nothing wrong with going on dates with several people when you’re single. It’s what most young people do. Taylor’s thoug tries to sell every single date as an epic romance, people find that fake and exhausting.

      • Becky says:

        I’m perplexed about the supposed comments that Taylor gets about the number of men she dates, and gets slut-shamed as it’s a double-standard, I’ve hardly seen these. The general opinion I’ve seen is she’s attention-seeking, fake and uses her personal life for publicity.

        As Hannah says it’s how the involvements are publicised, how they’re so OTT. You think she would’ve learned by now to keep things on the downlow or try and date normally.

    • AngelaH says:

      I was going to comment something similar. What really got me was that she has “set her sights” on him. Like now poor Zac will have no choice but to succumb to the succubus that is Taylor Swift. Come on! I don’t know her and I think she is really good for gossip, but getting in these sexist digs at her are gross.

    • Chaz says:

      @Jess I agree. If a man has a new one every week and multiples on the go he isn’t called a man-slag, he is just considered to be doing what men do.
      When a woman/girl does it the slut-shaming isn’t far behind.

    • Capella says:

      All of this is just made up tabloid fodder and ridiculous. Really? she sits around sharing her new PR conquest with the doorman or whoever the illustrious unnamed source is? Regardless, it will be believed and added to her list of crimes. GASP she writes songs about failed relationships … so uncommon for songwriters. GASP She has a PR team and together with “TayTay” they are more calculating and manipulative than Lex Luther. She responded to emotional situations with little self awareness and immaturity when she was in her teens and early 20′s. She orchestrated the flooding in Louisiana so she could pull off a PR donation. She was born with horns on her head and her haters won’t be satisfied until she drops off the face of the earth for her “crimes.” She is doomed and I don’t see the need for tabloids to accelerate her descent ($$). Everyone thinks her every move is made for PR but … maybe her next dating experience will simply be motivated by the same urges most people in their 20′s are motivated by … love, lust, attraction, romance, companionship, friendship … oh wait … I forgot … her daddy was rich and she is not entitled to human emotion.

    • bettyrose says:

      I agree with you to a point. Girl should do whatever she feels like. But the days of serial monogamy are over. We’re in hookup land now. So it’s a tad annoying that TS champions serial monogamy like a real life Monica Geller. Why not hit some NY clubs and let fate do its thing?

  5. Sam says:

    The point is, she learned from Tiddles and Calvin that going in, she HAS to be the good guy from the beginning. Efron is perfect because he is just broken enough that she can look like the hero trying to save poor drug addicted man with so much potential, get him on the straight and narrow and when it (inevitably) falls apart she can claim it was just too much knowing he loved the drugs more than her. She will have no fault and walk away smelling like roses. I really hate her PR machine.

    • mar_time says:

      In my opinion this would be HORRIBLE for Zac…he’s still battling his demons with the drugs and being with her and the daily tabloid nonsense could put him over the edge.

      • pleaseicu says:

        IA. It would most likely be horrible for Zac. He has a mostly horrible, ineffective PR team who struggle to handle effective messaging for their clients (see: Zac’s broken jaw, his trip to/fight on skid row, and Kristen Stewart’s entire PR approach post-Rupert Sanders affair becoming public). In the face of Taylor’s PR team, he’d be thrown under a bus and portrayed as a pathetic mess who can’t get out of bed without Taylor’s selfless help and love. And that’d be the message while they were together. Imagine the press narrative her PR team would come up with when they broke up?

        He seems to be sober right now and doing better but he’s also been able to approach his sobriety and live his life largely outside of the tabloid and pap/entertainment press unless he’s promoting a film. He was just talking a couple months ago about how he can’t go on the internet/follow his press because it messed with his head. That relative privacy and peace of mind and ability to attend to his sobriety without a pap lens following him goes away if he ends up dating Taylor.

  6. eggy weggs says:

    Those loafers are reading as oxblood over here — like classic Etienne Aigner signature oxblood — not brown. Go for it, Tay Tay. I think this dress would look better with a knee-high boot, but I don’t think this is an issue of brown-and-black.

    Also, who doesn’t love a black-and-cognac pairing? And I would call cognac “brown.”

    • Willa says:

      I’m getting oxblood too.

    • Coconut says:

      The French are actually not so matchy-matchy so I think they would think this outfit works, as do I.

    • Michelina says:

      I def. think you’re right and this outfit would’ve been 1,000 times better with a knee high boot. This is why homegirl needs a stylist, or at least a new one. It’s like she hangs out with women who are 2 or 3 times her age and they influence her style. Those pilgrim shoes are too old for her.

    • detritus says:

      Id say oxblood too.
      I actually enjoy the powder blue plus oxblood, too.
      But I don’t like powder blue, plus oxblood plus black and white stripes.

      • delphi says:

        I’m still trying to decide is that dress has a crew neck, or if it’s a mock-turtleneck that just decided to give up…

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I get cordovan, maybe burgundy.

  7. Melody says:

    So, I guess now she’s ok with the rigorous fitness regimes, as well as bearding for guys with serious addiction issues.

    Try harder Touch Weekly.

  8. browniecakes says:

    Look, if you are going to go thru men like potato chips the list has to be long. They can’t all be huge stars. Quantity over quality.
    I am starting to feel real sympathy for Tay’s bodyguards.
    It is not just the shoe color it is the height of the heel and the buckle situation.

  9. HH says:

    Ever since I saw her walking sideways to avoid the paps, I can’t take any head on photos of her seriously.

  10. Hannah says:

    “Zac efron isn’t famous enough”

    He’s more of a mainstream name than huddled, in America.
    She’s not zacs type though, he dates Latino and black girls it seems.

  11. Sarah says:

    I do not understand the hype Efron is getting lately… get roided and fake tanned up and somehow be noteworthy? I find his body and face repulsive… bleurghhh

  12. AlleyCat says:

    I hate that yellow tone to her hair, as well as how deep her side part is. I have side bangs as well but I would never go that deep, it looks like Donald Trump hair.

    I don’t think this is true, but I could see this happening. Taylor doesn’t care so much about the level of fame (she always needs to be the more famous one anyways), she just needs the guy to have lots of female fans. This way people are jealous of her, and she can hide she’s bi/gay.

    • G says:

      I went that deep with the bangs for about a year and now my hair is balding a little bit at that part. Had to get full bangs to help it recover. Don’t do it!

  13. Nancy says:

    Former country darling….lol….she’s a lot of genres former darling. I don’t believe this one. I don’t think Zac would want to be in the blogs everyday. This girl can’t put together an outfit, those shoes are awful. She does have tenacity however, doesn’t give up even when she is referred to as a snake. Shake it off….

  14. Betti says:

    I like the dress but she ruins it with the bag and shoes – girl has no style. I see the smug ‘aren’t you all jealous’ smirk is back.

    Taylor and Zac Efron, he should run for the hills – the snake emoji will send him back into rehab.

  15. Snazzy says:

    The Artist Formerly Known As Snake Emoji – LOL

    Also, not only do the shoes not match, but I feel the purse doesn’t go with the outfit either.

  16. Cinderella says:

    She better prepare for a lot of hard partying. Ridiculous woman.

  17. LannisterForever says:

    She is almost a head taller than him… I doubt she’s like that (and also, as someone said upthread, she’s not Zac’s type AT ALL)

  18. Nicole says:

    Another day, another beard.

  19. Margo S. says:

    After the mess that was her and Tom, I doubt any male star will go near her and be her contract Beau (or beard). She’s not good publicity anymore. Association with her will ruin any suitors career.

  20. frisbee says:

    Oh I dunno, I can see the potential for humour with Zac Efron – we can start calling them ‘Swift – one’ – because that’s exactly what he’ll be, or possible ‘Swift half’ because he’s so much dinkier than she is. Besides I miss the Glorious Tiddlesbanging and I’m still cheesed off I didn’t get my bloody Build-a-Bear Trebuchet duel at dawn…

  21. thaisajs says:

    Isn’t she pretty anti-drugs, tho? I thought that was one of the reasons that she had a mini-breakup with Selena during her Justin Bieber days. I don’t see how she makes it work with Efron unless he truly is clean now. Didn’t he get busted for drugs a few years ago?

    • Nicole says:

      Oh yes, remember he said his body guard had to use a makeshift shank.

    • OhDear says:

      Also, wasn’t there this suspicious story about how he broke his jaw a while back in some area known for drug dealing?

      As much as this potential coupling would be fun to mock, I don’t think Zac is healthy enough to handle the stresses that come with a retaytionship. For her, dealing with someone with (alleged) addiction issues (business or personal) can be extremely stressful.

  22. Skins says:

    Why on earth would any dude with any kind of career want to “date” her?

    • Bonzo says:

      I don’t think we can underestimate the attraction of being with someone hugely famous would have for those who love the spotlight and crave fame for themselves.

  23. Starkiller says:

    I imagine that Zac would like very much to be excluded from this narrative, that he never asked to be a part of.

  24. Dani says:

    She’s the type that would get sick of Zac and then blame it on his past drug use and throw in his face because she’s petty and gross like that. Stay away Zac. Simone Biles is waiting for you!!

  25. leigh says:

    Pilgrim shoes.

  26. lizzie says:

    she needs to break up with her hairdresser. holy sh*t that hair. i can’t get over it.

  27. Harla Jodet says:

    Run Zac run!!

  28. Adele Dazeem says:

    Okay I’m clearly in the minority here but I think Efron would be UP FOR THIS. A couple of years back, remember when he did a bunch of movies, turned down the title role in the remake of Footloose because he wanted to get away from the HSM stuff and be more of a “serious actor.” Now granted, this was before the drugs and (clearly the roid buff up) before his career kind of faltered…he was lucky the drugs and issues kind of went away from public consciousness but I feel like so did his high profile at the same time. A “relationship” with Taylor would get him back in the headlines in a more positive way than drugs, right?

    Yes I’m reaching. Lol.

    • Oya says:

      Well a Swift relationship turned a serious actor into a tabloid uncle, so why couldn’t her magic work in reverse?

  29. Anon33 says:

    A black bag and red flats or kitten heels would have made this outfit. Damn. It’s not that hard, TayTay.

    • I Choose Me says:

      NO to Kitten heels. Those things need to banned. Agree that a pair of red flats or sandals would have been the perf complement to this outfit which aside from the neckline, I’m digging. She could also have worn shoes the same colour as her bag just to shake things up.

  30. Right says:

    Prince Harry better watch out

  31. Bob says:

    Prior to setting her sites on Zac Efron, Taylor took a shot at Zach Quinto. The resulting telephone conversation was quite awkward.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Whaaat? How do you know this? You can’t just drop that bit and swan off. Come on, if you’re an insider, give us the deets. Unless you’re just taking the piss. In which case, well played.

      • Bob says:

        It was a joke. I saw the headline and imagined how funny it would be if Swift’s team accidentally floated a rumor that she’s dating a guy who is out of the closet.

  32. Paris says:

    Taylor, stay home with your cats. Take cooking classes. What about book club?

  33. FW says:

    Is Uncle Hiddles more famous than Zac Efron in US?

    quite interesting to see what PR strategy TayTay will adopt post-TayTo. Oh how I miss the great TayTo…

    • Jamie says:

      Zac is more famous. the other guy is only famous in England.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Hiddles was the internet’s boyfriend for a long while. Taylor assumed she would get more press attention and public jealousy out of the “relationship” than she actually did.

      Zac’s nowhere near that close to A-list now, though. I really wonder what her strategy is. Just get someone really, really pretty by her side?

  34. Jamie says:

    Taylor is already obsessed with a new guy 😂 How quickly did she forget about Tim Hiddledton. I can’t stop laughing at all the people who thought it was true love.

  35. pleaseicu says:

    I can see Taylor being game for it. Saving the addict from himself and restoring his belief in love after his last girlfriend cheated on him? Total PR gold for her. Don’t really see what’d be in it for Zac though. His current movie audience and choice in projects doesn’t exactly cross with Taylor’s fanbase. Zac isn’t having issues getting big studio projects again now that he’s clean and sober. And unless he’s specifically doing press for a movie, Zac seems to hide and live a relatively quiet, pap-free life. Dating Taylor would mean a bad PR angle plus endless pap parades. Why do that to himself?

  36. TyrantDestroyed says:

    If she wants to keep dating British men, then my complete vote in this new boyfriend casting is for the Duke of Marshmallows. That’s a pairing that I will die to see. Imagine her traveling around with the new boyfriend and Ma Middleton? Having dinner with her two sister in laws? Priceless.

  37. Bread and Circuses says:

    I…vaguely remember a blind item, years ago, about a young singer going ballistic when she heard about an actor’s newest PR relationship, because she had thought she was next on the list and she really wanted the guy.

    The male actor was widely guessed to be Zac Efron, and Taylor was *not* the most popular guess for the singer–but now I’m wondering. Maybe she thinks dating is like room service? Order up what she likes, as long as it’s available at the time?

  38. Soror Bro says:

    Wait, what? When did she split up with Calvin Harris?

  39. Kate says:

    Does she have any idea how this makes her look?

  40. rudy says:

    Zac Efron??? Zac Efron???

    Well, that seals the deal. She is bearding for and from.

  41. kibbles says:

    She’d probably love to go out with a British or Irish up and comer who is hot and on the cusp of international fame. My guess? She’d love to hook up for a few months with Aidan Turner, but she isn’t his type and he seems adverse to fame whores. But if Turner’s personality were more like Hiddleston and wanted the media attention, Swift would be totally down with that and I personally wouldn’t blame her. The only guy she’s been with whom I have lusted for was Jake Gyllenhaal. Her other boy toys are really vanilla and not very manly.

  42. serena says:

    Run Zac, run!
