Make no mistake—when you're a famous human, a relationship is never just a relationship.For better or worse, who you're dating is an extension of your brand.(Which, kudos for turning lemons into multi-platinum lemonade, girl.)Here, a look back the famous men she's dated throughout her career: Joe Jonas was the perfect baby pop-star boyfriend.Think of him as the Justin to her Britney and bemoan the fact that these two never stepped out in their own double denim Canadian tuxedos.When you're first getting started you need someone who understands what you're going through, someone equally as famous to ensure an equitable sharing of fans, someone to divide and conquer the paparazzi by escaping out of separate exits at the Grammys.The songs "Last Kiss" and "Better Than Revenge" apparently came out of the relationship,and Joe breaking up with her over the phone gave Tay something to "open up" about on Mayer was Swift's "I'm a woman now boyfriend." For any celebrity, dating John Mayer is a little like taking that unctuous corporate law job that will finally show the world you can wear the big girl pants.Or, in normal person terms, it's like taking a new job. Maybe it's just a stepping stone to bigger and better things. Now I would never (not ever) want to suggest that Taylor Swift and her latest love interest, Tom Hiddleston, aren't MFEO.But in the celebrity industrial complex, every relationship comes with opportunity, and Swift has been wildly successful at navigating the boyfriend waters to ensure each relationship bolsters Brand Swift.
It's all based on clues, speculation and a few rumors, so there's no guarantee we got 'em all right. (December 2012-January 2013) Taylor's rocky, brief relationship with One Direction's Harry Styles was scrutinized by the media from the day the pair stepped out together.
Ellen De Generes says on her talk show (airing Nov. That’s not right.” Taylor responds; “It’s all right – I’m cool.
You know what, it’s like, when I find that person that is right for me, he’ll be wonderful When I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 27 seconds when I was 18.” Ellen was shocked by Taylor‘s honesty, saying, “No, you did not.
Before they were officially a couple -- but months after they had a rumored fling in April 2012 -- Swift wrote "I Knew You Were Trouble.,” from “Red,” about Styles.
Once they broke up, all she had to tweet was a lyric from the song: "...'til you put me down," for fans to know it was over.
Country pop darling Taylor Swift has certainly become known for writing songs about the ghosts of boyfriends past.
