Are Taylor and Harry over already?
'Jooooyyy to the wooorrllld! Taylor and Harry are near me!' is what the seal in the foreground is reported to have sung.
Two months. Two months! Two glorious months spent hanging with babies at the zoo or out in the snow or the park or ... in the depths of one another's hearts.
Well, cue: the sound of a screeching record because One Direction's Harry Styles, 18 and Taylor Swift, 23 are apparently no more, according to People.com.
After visiting the British Virgin Islands together following a New Year's Eve smooch, Swift left by herself on Jan. 4, according to the New York Post's Page Six, which cites a source confirming the split.
Meanwhile, a photo of Styles in a hot tub with multiple people, including Richard Branson, surfaced Monday.
Reps for both stars have not commented.
There is also the small matter of Taylor's tweet on January 6. Quote '...'til you put me down.' It's from her song I Knew You Were Trouble:
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Til you put me down
But before we get ourselves worked up into some sort of sob spiral scenario, complete with slurpings of Haagen Daas butter pecan and quality time spent sitting at the bottom of the shower wailing over how TRUE LOVE IS DEAD let's remember what one of Taylor's friends told People.com a little while ago: 'No one is taking it seriously.' Also, lest we forget that Taylor Swift lives for break-ups, for out of break-ups come the hit songs about the mean boys. These songs are the Honey Boo Boo to her Mamma June. The golden goose. The cash cow. The human capital for her dolleurz. Okay, you get it.
