‘The X Factor’ Host Mario Lopez on Taylor Swift and Harry Styles Dating: ‘Taylor’s Done Quite Well For Herself’ (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW)

Expert on Haylor
Is Harry right for Taylor? Relationship expert weighs in!
Mario Lopez may have found his happily ever after when he wed actress Courtney Mazza in Mexico Dec. 1, but what does he think of the newest Hollywood couple to hit the scene: Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles?

“She’s a sweet girl… and he’s a nice guy too,” he told Celebuzz. “You know, they’re nice!”

Lopez, 39, was the first to spill the beans that the pop sensations were dating when he confirmed that the two were spotted hanging out backstage at FOX’s The X Factor.

At the time, the 22-year-old country crooner was performing, while Styles, 18, waited in the wings for his gal pal.

“Taylor Swift was the special guest performer and here’s a little inside scoop for you,” Lopez said on his radio show the day after the star sighting.

“During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, ‘Hey Mario, how you doing?’ And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ And he sort of points towards Taylor, and I said, ‘Oh! Good for you! And then I see the two walking off hand-in-hand,” he continued.

Since then, the couple has been spotted showing some major PDA in New York City — even holding hands during a karaoke date after One Direction’s sold out Madison Square Garden concert.

So does Lopez approve of the newest celebrity coupling that’s been dubbed “Haylor” by fans?

“Listen, Taylor’s done quite well for herself,” he told us. “She’s a good girl and she carries herself like a little lady.”

“I’ve gotten to know her and her mom a little bit and she should do whatever she should,” he continued. “The young girl has the world in her hands and she should do whatever she wants to do.

“I would, if I was her!”
