Taylor's Very Harry Situation
Taylor Swift opens up about her breakup with One Direction's Harry Styles in the latest issue of "Vanity Fair."
Listen up, Haylor devotees.
The country megastar dished about their whirlwind relationship which ended earlier this year, putting the blame on the 1D star's wandering eye.
"[He] disappeared one night and after that it was like he just didn’t want to keep going," a friend told the magazine.
After reportedly flirting at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards, Swift had her doubts about dating Styles, especially after he allegedly kissed model Emma Ostilly during the early stages of their relationship. The 23-year-old put her interests on hold after the betrayal, despite his attempts to woo her back.
"[Harry] was all, like, ‘You’re amazing - I want to be with you. I want to do this," the friend went on to reveal.
During that summer, Swift then briefly took interest in Conor Kennedy, venturing into a short-lived romance with the grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy, but not before giving into Styles' advances again.went public with their relationship in late 2012, even if the 1D star "wore her down" when she gave him a second chance. Things went sour for the couple after a heated fight in the Caribbean led to Swift's early and solo departure during the romantic getaway. Swift ended things once and for all afterward.
Styles' rep denies all of the claims.
Despite the scrutiny surrounding her highly-publicized love life, Swift swears "since 2010 I have dated exactly two people."
"[T]he fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with. . . it’s just kind of ridiculous," she said about her laundry list of rumored boyfriends, which includes Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer.
"It’s why I have to avoid the tabloid part of our culture, because they turn you into a fictional character," she added.
The speculation over her ex-beaus heightened in January at the Golden Globes, when hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler memorably mocked her past relationships and advised Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son Sam, who served as Mr. Golden Globe at this year's ceremony. While she didn't exactly address the incident, Swift subtly fought back against the comediennes' remarks.
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” she said. "Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.'"]
