Have mercy does Taylor Swift move along faster and faster these days! Fresh off the cuff of her breakup from Conor Kennedy, T-Swizzle has started hooking up with One Direction’s Harry Styles while rehearsing for The X-Factor. Cue eye roll. Cue vomit. Cue all the awful feels. It’s no secret that I dislike Taylor Swift. I can’t stand her music (I don’t care how catchy you think it is!) and her “holier than thou” attitude really skeeves me out. I also am not a huge One Direction lover, but I can tolerate it. They seem pretty douchey, but they’re young guys and they’re new to fame. They’ll learn.
But seriously what is going on with Taylor’s relationship behavior? No one dates so many people so quickly. John Mayer may not have given her an STD (or is it STI now? I don’t know.) but he certainly gave her some tips on how to become a serial dater. Before I was thinking, “Okay Tay-Tay, you’re the common denominator.” However, with this new budding relationship she has with Harry Styles, it’s become clear: publicity stunt.
“But Taylor’s young! She shouldn’t settle down now anyway.” Yes, she is young. But normal young people are able to have healthy relationships for longer than three months. Maybe she’s not putting out or maybe she’s a closet freak, I don’t have insight on that. What I do know is that when you write about every dude you go out with in an extraordinarily public fashion, say four albums, then it has to be something sneaky. Like a publicity stunt. She’s always in the press for who she’s dating. And how convenient that Harry Styles is like the hottest young thing in the pop world! Just think about it, okay?
What do you think? Is Taylor’s relationship issue that it’s all for PR? Or is she just really undateable?
