Taylor Swift’s Split From Harry Styles Allows For Sad Photo Opps and More Tour Buzz

Taylor Swift Sad On A Boat

“I’m (sniffle) on a (sniffle) boat. A one-way ticket to a lonely island, please.”

It seems like only yesterday we were oohing and aahing over the painfully cute/much too perfect photos of Taylor Swift strolling through New York’s Central Park with One Direction‘s Harry Styles. (Probably because it was only yesterday a month ago?) Despite being extremely wealthy and good-looking, it looks like these two won’t be making their musical fantasies a reality, as reports that their fledgling relationship is already over surfaced on Monday. Maybe Taylor wasn’t a fan of Harry’s growing tattoo collection, or quitting her diet of breakfast at midnight helped her realize that she’s been there, done that when it comes to dating barely legal boyfriends? Did Ed Sheeran finally get in the way? More likely, the harsh truth that you never really know someone until you travel together came to bite these two lovebirds in the behind. (Harry always seemed like a sloppy packer to us.)

Then again, it’s hard to commit to using words like “breakup” and “split” given the black-and-forth nature of Taylor (and Justin and Demi’s) various romances, as well as the valuable PR stock her allegiance with 1D provides. Both have new albums out, with ambitious tours slated for 2013 (kicking off in March for Taylor; February for Harry and One Direction). A few weeks of conflicting reports of revenge and reconciliation couldn’t hurt either one–just look at Bieber’s Believe tour; the Bieb may have struggled at points depending on where he stood with Selena Gomez, but fans showed up regardless. But back to the details: Taylor and Harry spent New Year’s Eve together in New York City, capping her live Times Square performance off with a very public makeout among the crowd. Harry did seem a little hesitant to us; maybe he’s not the PDA-type? After ringing in the New Year, the two jetted off to Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, where they had enough time to pose for friendly photos with fans and wear pretty sundresses before things fell apart. The Daily Mail says HaylorGate 2K13 ended in an “almighty row” and we’d like to believe it, because the Brits always make things sound better and more serious.

Taylor Swift And Ed Sheeran Are Bringing Red To A City Near You Next March

Like dropping a cherry on top of her whirlwind release week, Taylor Swift visited Katie Couric at ABC News on Friday night to announce that she is taking her record breaking new album Red out on tour. The tour will kick-off on March 13 (13 being Taylor’s lucky number) in Omaha, Nebraska, and will hit 45 North American cities for a total of 58 shows. And then — good news to great news! — she announced that she’ll be taking VH1 You Oughta Know‘s Ed Sheeran with her.

“Happy to announce that I am special guest on @taylorswift13′s tour of North America next year, cannot wait,” tweeted Ed after the good news broke. The young singer-song writer from England puts on a truly impressive show, and gets along famously with Taylor. If they can make a casual kitchen floor duet sound this good, can you imagine what will happen when they bring their Red duet “Everything Has Changed” to a big stage? We suspect you won’t want to miss it.

Tickets go on sale November 16th, will you be there?
