Taylor Swift is dating Harry Styles of One Direction (as if you don’t know who that is). I think that this might actually cause the tween fandom to explode with excitement. On top of that, it appears Taylor and Harry have spent one of their first public dates at a zoo. If tweens everywhere manage to contain their unbridled excitement for a Swift-One Direction match up, they will be completely lost to the cuteness power of seals. If you’d like to see some pictures, check out this article here.
Here’s the thing, though. When this ends (which is likely) and Taylor inevitably writes a song about it, it will be painfully obvious that the song she has written is about Harry, you know, because she’s incapable of using metaphors. How obvious was it that she had written the song “Dear John” about John Mayer? Very obvious, because she basically made his name a terrible pun in the title. Anyway, the point is that I can definitely see hordes and hordes of young tween girls being outrageously upset when they break up. I can’t help but think that this could quite possibly be the big red button of doom for Taylor Swift’s career (fingers crossed).
Also, I would like to know why both of them are incapable of dating people their own age. Taylor Swift last dated yet another eighteen-year-old, who was proceeded by a couple of thirty-year-olds. And didn’t Harry Styles date someone who is in their mid-thirties? I suppose my real question should be what exactly is wrong with that thirty-six year old that she feels the need to date a child? Gracious.
