Todrick Hall speaks out about Taylor Swift video backlash

Yahoo Music: So when some people saw you dancing in “Look What You Made Me Do,” they were not pleased, to put it mildly. What exactly happened?

Todrick Hall: They saw a clip, just a few seconds, that featured Taylor Swift standing in a line of dancers, and they started forming all types of conclusions. I was just very confused by that, because I knew that there was nothing “Formation”-esque or Lemonade-esque about the video. Artistically, I didn’t feel that was the case. I’m a humongous Beyoncé fan. I’ve worked with Beyoncé. I’ve choreographed for Beyoncé. And I would never intentionally be a part of art that I felt was ripping off my favorite artist of all time. But I felt like these were two completely different lanes.

“Sellout” was one of the common names you were called.

Yes, one of the main things that people said was, “He wanted to make his money. Well, good for him, he got paid. And I guess payment is enough for you to sell out your family, your people, your community.” But this had nothing to do with money. I didn’t do this Taylor Swift video for money. I did it because she’s my friend, and she was very excited about it. And she wanted people to be there who she could trust, because it was a very big undertaking. I was proud to be there, but money was not a factor for me. I don’t do things for money.

But there are people online who have a problem with the fact in general that you and Taylor are friends?

Yes, I have gotten comments from people who are upset and have literally said the fact that I am friends with a white person is a problem, because white people don’t possess the ability to love or ever truly care about black people. And I find that very disheartening. I’ve grown up in a neighborhood where I went to church with and lived with and went to school with beautiful black people; when I look at them, I see myself. But then I was also in a peculiar situation, because I danced in a dance group where I was the only black person in the dance studio. In some cases, I was the only black cheerleader in my school. I did theater where I was the only black person, the “token black person.” And working at Disney, oftentimes I was the only black person in the show at Disney World or Disneyland on any given day. And I also did tours where I was the only black singer; I did a cruise ship where I was the only black person in the cast. So I’ve been used to being in situations where I’ve had to find friendships and find love and find similarities. My whole brand, everything that I stand for and everything I’ve always stood for, is equality and love. So it’s just really difficult for me to understand why it is an issue for people, a legitimate issue, that I have white friends, and that Taylor Swift happens to be one of my many white friends.

Apparently there’s a thing called the “cookout,” which is like your invitation to be a part of the black community. Some people have, like, deemed themselves the Woke Police, and they decide to strip you online of your invitation to attend the “cookout.” It boggles my mind that people are deciding whether or not I’m down enough, black enough, or woke enough to be “invited.” If I have to hate people and judge people based on their race, sexual orientation, or religion, then sorry, but I’d rather order pizza.

What is Taylor really like? Describe your bond.

What people are mostly forgetting is that Taylor Swift really is my friend. Sometimes because she is a celebrity of such a huge status, inarguably one of the biggest stars of our generation, people forget that there is a human side to her, that she has real friends that she calls and talks to about her real problems. And I call her, and I have cried on her shoulder about my own relationship issues and family issues and career issues. We are friends, and so when she asked me to do this video, I said absolutely. It wasn’t a question for me. I trust her, and I had no problem doing the video. And I just think that it’s really sad and shocking that me doing four eight-counts of choreography is enough to make people feel the need to question my “blackness” or “wokeness.”

Taylor came to see me in Kinky Boots and she stayed after the show for two hours and met every single person in that cast — took pictures, signed stuff, met every usher, every custodian, every orchestra member, every producer and their kids. And then she went outside and met fans outside the theater afterwards, stayed there for over two and a half hours after the show and wouldn’t leave until every single person had been met. There are just very few celebrities in the world who would do something like that. She didn’t have to do that. She could’ve come to the show, said hi to me, and left. That’s just what type of person she is, and what type of person she’s always been. Her parents raised her so well, and when you’re in the room with them, you can feel that energy.

It just is shocking to me that people will see an image of her and hear stories online about her, or arguments with other celebrities who she did not ask to be involved with, who recorded her against her will without her knowing and then decided to release six-second clips of a conversation that happened to paint her to be this evil person that I don’t believe that she is. Come on, we’ve watched millions of episodes of Law & Order or seen Judge Judy a million times; how are they not able to conclude that there is something missing from this? If you feel the need to record someone on video with people there, the intentions may not have been the most pure.

Some of the criticism Taylor has received recently has to do with the fact that she has not been politically outspoken in past years, like some of her peers Katy Perry or Lady Gaga.

Yeah, many people have been tweeting me, “She supports Trump! She probably voted for Trump!” They’re making this huge assumption, when Taylor has never to my knowledge come out and said anything about her being pro-Trump. But people would still rather believe that she is the one who is pushing Trump’s agenda. That was one of the major things that was tweeted at me, and I’m like, “So you are mad that you think she might support Donald Trump? But you’re not mad that Kanye has been very openly pro-Trump?” I don’t understand that.

Look, I’m not Taylor Swift, so I can’t speak for her and why she does or does not choose to speak or not speak about any specific subject matter. All I know is that she has been nothing but a great person to me. Her family has welcomed me into their home and treated me like I was a member of the family. They’ve welcomed every single person I’ve ever brought around them. I’ve never felt like there was ever a moment that I couldn’t be myself, and talk about the fact that I’m gay or whatever. At Thanksgiving, we all sat around and talked about it, and there was another one of her friends there who was African-American, and we all sat down and talked about racism and watched 13th on Netflix and talked about how important it was. It was one of the most beautiful conversations I’ve ever had, because sometimes as an African-American person I feel like I can’t voice my opinion about how difficult it is to be not just an African-American person in the entertainment industry, but how scary it is to be black in America, in even 2017.

When it comes to Taylor, all I know is that she has been a sweet, amazing human being to me. When she calls me, it’s hardly ever to talk about her accomplishments or things that she’s going through. She calls me and says, “How’s your heart? Are you OK?” I’ve been around her an awful lot, and if it were some type of crazy, fake façade, I think I would have figured it out by now. I feel like it’s a genuine part of who she is, and she’s a human being. Has she made mistakes? Yes. Will she make mistakes again? Yes. But let the person in America who has not made mistakes raise their hand.

I think that I’m on my own journey; every artist is on their own journey. Maybe one day, Taylor will start being super-political, and using her voice to do thing that people think that she should be doing. But even then, she will probably be ridiculed for not being vocal enough, or not being on the right side. I don’t think that there is a way to win in this industry, so every person has to take their own journey at their own pace, at their own time, and do what they feel like is right. All I know is that Taylor has been nothing but sweet to me since day one, and if she asks me to do a video, I’m absolutely going be there.

I’m not apologizing for being a part of the video and doing four eight-counts of choreography in it. I thought it was a great piece of art. I thought it was awesome. It’s broken so many records and I’m proud to be a part of it. I don’t think I’ve sold out my race or my community — the gay community, the black community. I think that I was just in a piece of art that my friend made. I’m not issuing a statement to people about it to explain myself, because there’s nothing to explain. I’m not sorry that I did it, and I don’t think that it was a mistake. If I had a do-over, I would absolutely be there for another eight hours, in heels, dancing with her.

Is Taylor aware of the heat you’ve gotten for being in her video?

I have talked to her about it, and she has been very uplifting and given me a lot of information about how when you’re doing big things, there will always be people who have something to say about it. But I think that Beyoncé gave me the best advice when I met her. She said, “Don’t scroll down. Don’t go down and look at comments, and when you do something as an artist, make a decision and stick to it. You don’t need to apologize for things that you’ve done.” I use that all the time.

You have gotten this sort of criticism before.

Yeah. In the beginning, it was because I did videos based on stereotypes of a particular group that put people in a negative light. And so I took those notes, because I consider myself to be a humble person, and I tried to apply them, and tried to do less work on my YouTube channel that stereotyped people, less work that stereotyped my race as being “ghetto” or “ratchet,” because I did understand the argument. I think it’s a really difficult thing when you toe the line with comedy, because there are certain things that some people are going to think is funny, but then some people are always going to be offended. The political climate has changed so much over the past months since Donald Trump became president, and it has just been a very scary place to create content online. So I tried to do whatever I can to create content that everyone can love and that is inclusive of everybody.

It’s just something that I deal with every day. I wrote an album about my life [Straight Outta Oz], about how I fell in love at 19 years old with a boy who was British and who just happened to be white. I wrote a song called “Color,” and in the song I say the line, “You’re my favorite hue.” What I meant by that when I wrote the song was it’s supposed to be a direct relation to the 1939 Wizard of Oz film, and then everything turns to color when Dorothy gets to Oz. I felt like my whole world was black and white before I met this person. But people took that as that white was my favorite color, and that was what I preferred. People have assumed that am the type of person that refuses to date people of my own race or associate with people of my own race. Which, I don’t feel the need to prove to them that I have in fact dated multiple black men and Puerto Rican, Latino men. I’m an equal opportunist when it comes to love. I think everyone is beautiful. You fall in love with a person, not the outer layer of skin.

It’s really frustrating because I don’t think that people realize that when I got to L.A., I lived in not a great neighborhood. A policeman drove up onto a sidewalk, got out of the car, pushed my face on the ground, put my hands on my back, pulled a gun out on me. I have never felt so scared in my entire life. I have witnessed so many things like that. It’s very difficult for me to go and spend time in a predominantly Caucasian neighborhood without the cops being called on me, because people don’t know why I’m there and they think I look suspicious. I have had a lot of issues and dealt with racism in the same capacity as a lot of other people. I have written so many songs, even on Straight Outta Oz, about the Black Lives Matter movement, because it’s something that I’m very passionate about. It’s something that I definitely use my voice and my platform to speak out against. So it’s frustrating that people who have never met me in person like to make huge, incorrect assumptions about me and go and scream them and yell them from the rooftops online.

I just strongly feel that if we can’t get along within our own race, and have to point fingers and yell at people who we think don’t have our back when we don’t know anything about them — we haven’t listened to the facts, we haven’t seen the footage, there are no receipts to show that this person is not a proud African-American person who isn’t down to fight for equality for everyone’s sake — if we fight with each other so much that we’re tearing down our own race and our own community, how does that make us any better than the people in Charlottesville, carrying the tiki torches? How are we any better than those people, and how are we ever going to meet in the middle and finally be able to say, “Let’s be one unified group of people”? I just don’t understand how it’s possible, and that what makes me so upset.

Online outrage is at an all-time high right now, for sure. Everyone is on edge.

I think that we’ve got to figure out a way within our own community to stop tearing people down and stop making assumptions and looking for reasons to be mad. I don’t know what is happening in the world right now, but now is a scary time. People are looking for someone to blame and someone to point fingers at. I don’t think that Taylor Swift is the problem with America right now. People can try to make that be the issue, but there is a much bigger issue here in our country that we need to look at and recognize, and figure out what we can do to be a part of making the world a better place, to be nice and sweet and kind to each other, and to realize that racism is a huge horrible thing that has kept a lot of people down.

But I think it’s going to take every race, every minority, every gay person, every trans person, every straight person, waking up and realizing that we can’t do this alone. We can’t divide into our own little sections and decide that we’re going to secretly hate each other and be mad if one person goes over and shakes the hand of somebody on the other team. We all need to be one team. We all have to go out and extend an olive branch to each other and try to help each other out and try to build one another up. That’s the only way that we can be successful. That’s the only way that we can make this world the beautiful place that God created it to be. Spread love, and love each other. That’s what I try to do.

Did you engage with any of your online critics about this video?

I gave no negative tweets, didn’t argue with people on social media, had nothing to say to them. But I even went so far as to give somebody my phone number online so they could call me and said, “If you feel I’ve done something that’s offended you, or if you could shed some light on as to how me being involved with this video or being friends with Taylor Swift — other than the fact that she is white and you feel that she is the epitome of white privilege, the poster child for white privilege … If there’s anything you can do to shed some light to me as to how I can be a better example for young African-American kids growing up, then I would love to talk to you on the phone.” And I meant it. And I talked to them, and I felt like we came to a good place. I’m a humble person; I’m not opposed to taking constructive criticism.

There was a time two years ago where I would’ve damn near gotten carpal tunnel because I would’ve stayed up all night trying to argue back and forth [on Twitter], thinking, “What would Regina George do?” Now I’m adopting the policy, “What would Beyoncé do?” So I’m going to kill all these people with kindness. I’m going to be nice to them, and I’m just going to prove to them, one by one when they meet me, what type of person I am. Support my friends, be nice to people, and do what I have to do to be a good human being and play my part in society and in this crazy political climate.

Obviously I’m not diminishing the horrible things that have happened to get us to this point, but at this point we have a choice to either band together and fight and talk about the real issues and the real problems, and Taylor Swift is not the problem. If we can all accept the fact that there is a bigger problem and start having dialogue and talking to each other — not just with the people that it’s comfortable for us to talk to, our own people and people who look like us, but to people who might not understand where we’re coming from or what we’ve been through — then we might get closer to making this world a unified place, the way that Michael Jackson sang about in his songs and in his music. While I know that is not the theme of “Look What You Made Me Do,” I do believe that is the theme of Taylor Swift’s heart and the person that she truly is on a personal level.

anonymous asked:

Hey Haven, I understand you may not want to give “you know who” much thought, but I’d love to hear your opinion on Getaway Car, you’re so eloquent and I can’t process the depth of meanness of that song directed at a very decent, lovely person.

Hey there,

This is one of those messages that I argue with myself over answering for the reason you mention at the beginning, because it has certain effects that I am not in the mood for, such as seeing any nonsense responses in my activity feed.

I am answering it not because of her, but because of him.  

We must begin by assuming two things: 1)the song is indeed about him and 2)it is a factual representation of their time together.

Guided by those two assumptions, I will say that it leaves me in a cocktail of permanently cemented disgust and scratching-my-head bewilderment.

I don’t want to spend a lot of time on this, so I am just going to mention some highlights that are kind of scattered.

  • She is flat out saying it was a rebound relationship for her, that she didn’t “mean it” and that she lied to him.
  • She is essentially branding him as a fool for not knowing that.
  • She positions herself as being the one in power and ending the relationship, which is extremely important as it relates to the Main Issue below.
  • Does she ever say anything about an ex that isn’t sour grapes?

Let’s think about the things she doesn’t say, shall we?

  • She doesn’t say she genuinely cared about him.  At all. On any level, for any amount of time.
  • She doesn’t say anything that talks about who he is (kind, affectionate, etc.).
  • She doesn’t refute that he was honestly invested in the relationship.

Let’s be real here - she doesn’t have anything positive to say about Tom Hiddleston?  Really?  Tom Hiddleston, who brings hot soup to cold reporters on the red carpet?  Tom Hiddleston, who is universally hailed by his colleagues as being the nicest guy?  Tom Hiddleston, who always seems to be patient and kind and respectful?  Tom Hiddleston, who has never said anything remotely negative about her?  Tom Hiddleston, who gets mad at himself if he isn’t authentic in interviews?  Tom Hiddleston, Captain Pureheart? Seriously?  That Tom Hiddleston?  Talk about hard to process.  

As if those things aren’t enough on their own, the Main Issue for me is that she does not say that he was duplicitous and only using her for selfish reasons (I’m not interpreting the “turned you in” line as indicative of that).  Which is totally against the public narrative that she allowed and has not once contradicted that he was just a fame whore.

Let that sink in for a minute.

Because the idea of “Oh, poor me, this big nasty guy was using me to get famous!” is entirely different from “You were a rebound, I didn’t mean it, I left you, how could you think it was anything real!”

Entirely different.

In the beginning, she was the victim.

Currently? 

She’s trying to pass herself off as the victor, but it’s in a weird way that smacks of victim blaming.

There is something sick and unhealthy about the bigger picture of this whole thing that is very unsettling, not the least of which is that people who support her will still do so without recognizing that a mature person does not publicly flaunt having lied to someone and used them.  

And she is talking about a man who said “Of course it was real.” and “Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.”

Now let that sink in.

So, little gray face, I guess maybe don’t worry about processing it.  He was a decent, lovely person in the beginning.  He is a decent, lovely person currently.  He hasn’t let this one short period of his life change that.  He doesn’t need a getaway car. 

Okay story time !

So last Saturday I got a message from Taylor Nation asking me if I was interested in going to a secret confidential event. (UH YES) so they then contacted me the next day saying that they are holding an event in Rhode Island and I was freaking out. I was like omg what is it gonna be. A secret session ??? Am I gonna finally meet taylor after 10 years ???

So the wait was torture. Me and my friend woke up at 6 Wednesday morning and got on the road by 8 so we would make it to Rhode Island in time to get ready and mentally prepare ourselves for what’s to come. We got to the hotel early. Checked in and we were freaking out so we decieded to get ready early even tho we still had three hours to go lol

We finally leave and met at the meeting spot. Checked in and one of the workers for taylor nation recognized me and I started to cry all ready. “Didn’t you have blonde curly hair??” Yes I did. A week ago lol but I went back to my dark hair.

So they then put us on the bus and we waited for about 2 hours. We talked to some people became friends and just freaked out together. We finally got going and we were going to Taylor’s house. At that moment it still didn’t hit me that I was going to be with Taylor.


So we get to Taylor’s house and we eat some chicken nugs and pizza. Her dad is handing out guitar picks !!!!! And her mom came down to hug us and Austin came down to talk to us. We were then escorted to her living room. Me and my friend got front row. We basically could have sat on Taylor’s feet.

Taylor finally walked in and that’s when I losted it and was non stop crying. Like she’s beautiful in person. We then proceeded to listen to the album and every so often she would make eye contact with me and hold it for a while and I just died. She always would talk to some of us and I said to my friend after one of the songs how amazing it was and she was like “you really think it was amazing ?” And I was like uh yes it’s sooooo good. And she was like “ omg thank you so much “ I cried again.


Then we finished listening to the album and hung out with her for a little and then the meet and greets happened. I walked up to her and gave her a big hug and she goes “You’re Jackie right?” And I completely lost it. And she hugged my friend and then we started a conversation on my name lol and then I was like “okay listen. I have been struggling with depression and anxiety and you have helped me so much.” And she cut me off to say “omg I’m so sorry to hear that. I have a lot friends that struggle with that and I have my own bag of crap. “ and then “I was like no like you saved my life taylor. Like I been thinking about ending my life but then I think about how you would not want me to and how I need to be here for you” and she goes “I would never forgive you if you did something to yourself and nethiwr would your friend here. You are so special and so special to me. I love you so much. I can’t wait to see you grow into an even more beautiful person.” And she said other stuff but like I was bawling and I don’t remember lol

So then we took our pictures and like I died. And before we left I hugged her one last time and I said “thank you. I love you so much.” And she goes “ I love you so much too”.

And here I am laying in bed crying writing this. Taylor really did save my life. And I really hope you all get to meet her. @taylorswift

I’ve just finished reading the Cosmopolitan article and I am absolutely disgusted.  Let’s start from the beginning, cause I feel like media don’t understand some simple things.

reputation noun [ C usually singular, U ] UK /ˌrep.jəˈteɪ.ʃən/ US /ˌrep.jəˈteɪ.ʃən/

the opinion that people in general have about someone or something, or how much respect or admiration someone or something receives, based on past behaviour or character.

THE OPINION THAT PEOPLE IN GENERAL HAVE ABOUT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING. The opinion. That. People in general. have. So why Cosmo is saying that Taylor is responsible for her reputation when clearly general public, people who aren’t fans of her, base their opinion mostly on articles written by the media? Some of you probably will say, ‘Oh it’s because media write articles and call her out for her mistakes so the reputation is based on her behaviour ha, if she was a good girl, she would have a good reputation.’ But let me tell you something. The media are the ones that change facts and portray Taylor as a bad, evil, nazi, Trump supporter, serial dater, fake feminist, snake. She has NEVER done ANYTHING they charge her for. But wait, Cosmo goes further, they even add some examples of “bad” things Taylor has done: 

-  She’s the person who called out Kanye West - wow, what a crime. Singer-songwriter, probably one of the most hard-working in this industry wanted a credit for her fame, because she didn’t want the man saying ‘I made that bitch famous’ when he clearly didn’t. She didn’t want her naked body to be used without the permission. She just wanted the truth. What a crime I am telling you, woman standing up for herself. I am literally on the floor.

-  She’s the person who dated Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris - another huge crime. Taylor Swift dated TWO GUYS, IN THE SAME YEAR. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS??? She fell in love, she broke up with the guy and then she started dating another guy. She should go to jail for this. Not like most of you probably have done that in your life but let’s attack Taylor Swift, she can’t date anyone. She’s Satan. 

- She’s the person who used her squad for publicity - SURE. Of course, she is the one who kept asking her friends about herself in every interview devoted to their work and their projects, she analysed every picture of them together posted on social media, she created fake fights between them. She is guilty of that. Lmao. 

- She’s the person who espoused a shallow feminism that does nothing to help women in any tangible way - Taylor Swift, like many other female and male celebrities decided not to speak up about her political views and not to attend Women Marches just because she wants us, fans, to be responsible for our own choices, decisions and views. She has never said she supports Trump. Moreover her friend Todrick Hall told you that she doesn’t. She did A LOT for women and women’s rights, she just didn’t go to national TV to announce that. She helped Kesha, she helped numerous organisations supporting women. But yeah, since she didn’t scream about it every day she’s a fake feminist. But wait… media called her that. 

So to sum up. Taylor Swift is the very last person to be responsible for her reputation. Media have been portraying her in a wrong way for years, they were changing their minds basing their opinion about her on what’s more clickable. And saying they were giving her ‘good reviews’ when it comes about her music and songs, so she shouldn’t blame them is ridiculous because it has nothing to do with a reputation. And now when she’s giving them nothing, they decided to start a classic victim-blaming and treat us, her fans, like brainwashed idiots that aren’t able to form critical views. Well, dear Cosmo, Taylor Swift has never discouraged me from thinking critically, I think it’s quite the opposite. That’s why I can smell your bullshit everywhere. Sincerely, a Swiftie. 

Ok, I have to tell you about one of my amazing meetings with Robin Lord Taylor at HVFF in London, just a few days ago. 
The audio in the video should be pretty clear, but if you have an hard time hearing it, or do you want more background to the story, here it is:
So we all agree that “nygmobblepot” is a fucking difficult word right? It’s sound made up, especially if you’re talking in Italian, believe me it’s a nightmare. And I’m talking about nygmobblepot 24/7, even with a few of my best friends who don’t watch the show…but, they want to be supportive and, well they want to understand why I’m crying all the time, so the TRY to ask me about that but…they can’t pronounce the word, it’s to hard.
So at first they were like: “how is going with nygmhdkfdfskfjirjgk?”
But then, they got creative, and started to come up with real names, like “nygmwobafett” or funny stuff like that. BUT, the name that sticked, my personal favourite, was “NYGMPOWERBOTTOM” (and let’s just face it, it’s also kinda accurate because…well we all know Oswald, wink wink). It’s been MONTHS and we still call them just “nygmpowerbottom”, so at some point we were like “ok…Robin needs to know. He needs to know.”
AND HE DID!

At the signing table I brought him this beautiful aesthetic one of my friend made ( I will add the picture later) with “Nygmpowerbottom” written at the top of the picture, and this was his reaction, AND IT WAS PRICELESS!
He was so cute, so appreciative, he blushed and was total supportive, we laughed both so hard it was making my heart exploding, and HE TOOK A PICTURE WITH HIS PHONE. That’s the biggest achievement of my life, I’m not even kidding! When he said “it so funny, I love it, it’s brilliant” i think I was going to faint! I’m so happy I’ve made him laugh so hard! He was so precious, you can see it with your eyes…
I want to share this because Robin Lord Taylor is the most precious person in the world and everyone needs to see that!!! He’s a pure ray of sunshine and I had the best time of my life with him!

So just remember……..NYGMPOWERBOTTOM!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

REPUTATION SECRET SESSIONS LONDON (OCTOBER 13TH 2017) - Masterpost

There was a lot going on Friday the 13thโ€ฆ Most of us probably missed something. So what Iโ€™m trying to do here is gather tweets and Tumblr posts of the lucky ones who got to have that experience. Basically these are just some of the impressions and important information people were able to share with us. If I missed something important, please feel free to point it out and I will updateโ€ฆ Also, and I think I speak for everyone, huge thanks to all of you who answered all of our questions and shared anecdotes from this event. We really do appreciate it.

Keep reading

I’m just saying… I spent a good hour last night talking about all the Gaylor Swift theories to one of my datemate persons and:

1. Like, let the record show, they listened to me talk pretty much nonstop, listened to the IKYWT where she switches pronouns, let me show them picture after picture, masterpost after masterpost. They’re a fucking keeper is all I’m saying.

2. Totally believe TSwift is hella gay. 

3. Can’t believe anyone could possible think Gorgeous is about anything other than being in love with another chick. 

4. Can’t see how anyone can think the RFI music video is anything other than a reference to glass closeting. 

5. Freaked out over the Knicks date photos.

6. Said, and I quote, “Come on, Taylor Swift LOOKS like a lesbian.”

7. Said they actually like TSwift more now, knowing she’s super gay. 

In summation: if you think TSwift is 100% straight, you’re honestly just willfully ignoring all the signs at this point.

HARRY Styles is dating Victoria’s Secret model Camille Rowe, The Sun can reveal.

Friends say the One Direction superstar is smitten with the French-American who appeared on the cover of Playboy last year.

It is the third Victoria’s Secret angel he has romanced following on from Sara Sampaio, 26, and Nadine Leopold, 23.

Harry, 23, and Camille, 27, who share a friend in model Alexa Chung, 33, went to a gig in New York together at the weekend.

A source revealed: “Harry and Camille are in the early stages of dating. He’s very protective of his relationships so isn’t going to want to make a big show of things. They are well suited and seem happy.

“She’s a real star on the rise. He seems besotted.”

Dunkirk star Harry’s close friend Nick Grimshaw nearly laid bare the secret during an interview last month.

He hooked Harry up to a heart monitor to see what excites him and showed him a picture of Camille.

Grinning Harry said awkwardly: “I don’t know her. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person. I hate you all so much.”

Camille was discovered in Paris when she was just 18.

She modelled for Louis Vuitton and Dior before moving to New York aged 21.

Camille is an aspiring actress and thought to have dated MGMT musician Andrew VanWyngarden and singer Devendra Banhart.

Harry had a romance with food blogger Tess Ward earlier year.

He has also dated Taylor Swift, Caroline Flack and Kendall Jenner.

If you have a taylor follow and you could reblog this it would seriously mean the world to me.  She doesn’t follow me and has never seen my tumblr

I wrote a long tumblr post to go with this pic as soon as I got it (using the app) and it didn’t post…. so let me try again.

I thought I was invited by Taylor Nation, not Taylor her self.  When I walked up to her she didn’t say my name, so after we hugged I introduced my self- I said “Hi, I’m Tyler” and she grabbed my shoulders and was like “I know who you are!” in an almost offended tone, and I looked shocked and dumbfounded and I said “Stop! I did not expect you to say that!” and she grabbed my hands and said “I see how positive you are online, you’re so supportive of other fans, and you’ve been a fan for so long, and it was so important to me that you were here tonight so I could say thank you for that” (or something like that!)
You guys…. like she really knew me!  Never in a million years did I think that if I finally met her she would know ME that SHE would have wanted to meet ME.  I couldn’t even wrap my mind around it.  

I told her that there has been so much ugliness thrown at her and that there have been times I just wished I could hug her and be there for her (and I started tearing up, and hugged her) and she grabbed my hands and said “Don’t worry about me ok” (or something like that! it all get’s blurry right after you talk to her!).  Then I told her that she is doing everything right, and that we need women to re-write the rules in every way, and that she is doing exactly that and I’m so freakin proud of her.  She smiled and said thank you.

When she asked me what I wanted to do for my picture I said: “Can we hold hands and look at each other like we are strong women ready to take on the world together?” and she said “YES WE CAN” hahaha, so we posed like this and we were looking at each others eyes and it was like kinda intense so we were both giggling a little bit!

As I walked away I heard her say “Taylor and Tyler! Taylor and Tyler!” so I turned around and said it back to her: “Taylor and Tyler!”

I got my DM on Friday night, my phone call on Saturday, and I made it to LA in time to go to Taylor’s on Sunday!  So hold onto hope that you can be invited to something at the very last moment!
The album was amazing…  it’s so honest, smart, bold, and SEXY.  I was brought to tears by her bravery to tell her story and to share so intimately with us. I’m in awe of her insistence that she hold control of the narrative of her life.  I’m inspired by her love story.  I’m just so damn happy for her, and so incredibly proud of her.

Also- Taylor if you’re reading this, of course I had so much else I wish I could have said.  I wish I could have told you how much JOY you have brought to my life, and how you’ve been there for me in ways no one else could.  I wish I could have told you about the amazing swifties who have become some of my very best friends.  About how Ally had the most beautiful swifty wedding, and a second baby boy, and how Tyler followed his heart fearlessly and moved to New York to follow his dreams.  I wish I could have told you that I teach kindergarten, which is a career I wanted since I was 14, and it is SO much harder that I ever could have imagined.  Teaching is so emotionally and mentally challenging that I sometimes wonder if I can manage it, but I love my students SO freakin much, and that I see my work as an act of social just every single day… and that means everything to me.  I wish I could tell you how much it’s meant to me every time you’ve complimented another swifty teacher, because we really don’t get appreciated often.  I wish I could have asked you about your new favorite NYC spots - maybe a great brunch place Tyler (Conroy) and I should check out.  I wish I could have told you that I too have found the love of my life, and isn’t it just mind blowing and gut wrenching and terrifying and amazing and perfect and beautiful all at once?!  I wish I could have asked you how I can be the friend you need from afar, beyond buying albums and coming to shows, which battles do you want me to fight for you? Which bullshit do you want me to pay no mind to?
I wish I had the time to say thank you at least 13 times, because I could truly never thank you enough for everything.
Taylor, I taped the picture of us up behind my desk in my classroom.  I look at it and remember what you said to me, that you appreciated how positive and supportive I was of other fans.  I try and remember that in every interaction I have with another person, especially my students.  That conversation we had will inspire me to be my best self for the rest of my life.  I love you Tay.  

Taylor and Tyler!!!!!!!

Sometimes I am worried that Taylor could ‘not see’ my blog because 90% of the content I post is just pictures of her. And I feel like for her, that could be maybe ‘boring’ to look at because how I said, it’s just pictures of her. I make personal posts too and sometimes post selfies but not that much but I hope she knows that every time I hit the reblog button on these pictures I am either stunned by her or by the way someone edited a picture and created art. Taylor, I love you so much and that is my way of living that. I feel unconfortable with posting many pictures or even videos of myself. But there is so much love I want to send to you.

Whenever I think about the Speak Now tour i just remember how happy I was. I was such a shy and quiet child and I was there with my dad in the nosebleeds. When I saw the smoke and she came out from under the stage and said “drop everything now” I started shaking and I was just smiling so big and singing along to all the words and I started crying and then my dad started crying. He kept taking pictures of me and I kept saying “Take pictures of Taylor not me!” and he just wouldn’t but then later after the show was over he said he’d never seen me so happy and it made him realize what Taylor meant to me. Still to this day I remember that night like the back of my hand because it was the first time I saw the person that changed my perspective on life and I get chills just thinking about it now. I will forever appreciate Speak Now and Taylor in general and this is just one example of why. 

Taylor literally does not have to be spending her time out here meeting fans nearly constantly. She could be at home drinking wine with her boyfriend, or gossiping with her mom, or having a girls’ night out. Instead she is out taking pictures with fans and learning their names and being so personal with us.

So stop. Complaining. If. She. Meets. Someone. Multiple times.

I have said it before and I will say it again, Taylor is a person. She is not an exclusive item in a museum who you only get to see once in life and that’s it. She is a person. She forms bonds with people, including fans. So if she wants to meet someone twice, three, four times, she is allowed to. She is still meeting fans she has never met before.

Todrick Hall speaks out about Taylor Swift video backlash
When Taylor Swift shared a 13-second preview of her hotly anticipated "Look What You Made Me Do" music video last week, it should have been a celebratory moment for her good friend Todrick Hall. But instead, Hall was trolled online by haters, who accused the openly gay performer of betraying


Yahoo Music: So when some people saw you dancing in “Look What You Made Me Do,” they were not pleased, to put it mildly. What exactly happened?

Todrick Hall: They saw a clip, just a few seconds, that featured Taylor Swift standing in a line of dancers, and they started forming all types of conclusions. I was just very confused by that, because I knew that there was nothing “Formation”-esque or Lemonade-esque about the video. Artistically, I didn’t feel that was the case. I’m a humongous Beyoncé fan. I’ve worked with Beyoncé. I’ve choreographed for Beyoncé. And I would never intentionally be a part of art that I felt was ripping off my favorite artist of all time. But I felt like these were two completely different lanes.

“Sellout” was one of the common names you were called.

Yes, one of the main things that people said was, “He wanted to make his money. Well, good for him, he got paid. And I guess payment is enough for you to sell out your family, your people, your community.” But this had nothing to do with money. I didn’t do this Taylor Swift video for money. I did it because she’s my friend, and she was very excited about it. And she wanted people to be there who she could trust, because it was a very big undertaking. I was proud to be there, but money was not a factor for me. I don’t do things for money.

But there are people online who have a problem with the fact in general that you and Taylor are friends?

Yes, I have gotten comments from people who are upset and have literally said the fact that I am friends with a white person is a problem, because white people don’t possess the ability to love or ever truly care about black people. And I find that very disheartening. I’ve grown up in a neighborhood where I went to church with and lived with and went to school with beautiful black people; when I look at them, I see myself. But then I was also in a peculiar situation, because I danced in a dance group where I was the only black person in the dance studio. In some cases, I was the only black cheerleader in my school. I did theater where I was the only black person, the “token black person.” And working at Disney, oftentimes I was the only black person in the show at Disney World or Disneyland on any given day. And I also did tours where I was the only black singer; I did a cruise ship where I was the only black person in the cast. So I’ve been used to being in situations where I’ve had to find friendships and find love and find similarities. My whole brand, everything that I stand for and everything I’ve always stood for, is equality and love. So it’s just really difficult for me to understand why it is an issue for people, a legitimate issue, that I have white friends, and that Taylor Swift happens to be one of my many white friends.

Apparently there’s a thing called the “cookout,” which is like your invitation to be a part of the black community. Some people have, like, deemed themselves the Woke Police, and they decide to strip you online of your invitation to attend the “cookout.” It boggles my mind that people are deciding whether or not I’m down enough, black enough, or woke enough to be “invited.” If I have to hate people and judge people based on their race, sexual orientation, or religion, then sorry, but I’d rather order pizza.

What is Taylor really like? Describe your bond.

What people are mostly forgetting is that Taylor Swift really is my friend. Sometimes because she is a celebrity of such a huge status, inarguably one of the biggest stars of our generation, people forget that there is a human side to her, that she has real friends that she calls and talks to about her real problems. And I call her, and I have cried on her shoulder about my own relationship issues and family issues and career issues. We are friends, and so when she asked me to do this video, I said absolutely. It wasn’t a question for me. I trust her, and I had no problem doing the video. And I just think that it’s really sad and shocking that me doing four eight-counts of choreography is enough to make people feel the need to question my “blackness” or “wokeness.”

Taylor came to see me in Kinky Boots and she stayed after the show for two hours and met every single person in that cast — took pictures, signed stuff, met every usher, every custodian, every orchestra member, every producer and their kids. And then she went outside and met fans outside the theater afterwards, stayed there for over two and a half hours after the show and wouldn’t leave until every single person had been met. There are just very few celebrities in the world who would do something like that. She didn’t have to do that. She could’ve come to the show, said hi to me, and left. That’s just what type of person she is, and what type of person she’s always been. Her parents raised her so well, and when you’re in the room with them, you can feel that energy.

It just is shocking to me that people will see an image of her and hear stories online about her, or arguments with other celebrities who she did not ask to be involved with, who recorded her against her will without her knowing and then decided to release six-second clips of a conversation that happened to paint her to be this evil person that I don’t believe that she is. Come on, we’ve watched millions of episodes of Law & Order or seen Judge Judy a million times; how are they not able to conclude that there is something missing from this? If you feel the need to record someone on video with people there, the intentions may not have been the most pure.

Some of the criticism Taylor has received recently has to do with the fact that she has not been politically outspoken in the past year, like her peers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.

Yeah, many people have been tweeting me, “She supports Trump! She probably voted for Trump!” They’re making this huge assumption, when Taylor has never to my knowledge come out and said anything about her being pro-Trump. But people would still rather believe that she is the one who is pushing Trump’s agenda. That was one of the major things that was tweeted at me, and I’m like, “So you are mad that you think she might support Donald Trump? But you’re not mad that Kanye has been very openly pro-Trump?” I don’t understand that.

Look, I’m not Taylor Swift, so I can’t speak for her and why she does or does not choose to speak or not speak about any specific subject matter. All I know is that she has been nothing but a great person to me. Her family has welcomed me into their home and treated me like I was a member of the family. They’ve welcomed every single person I’ve ever brought around them. I’ve never felt like there was ever a moment that I couldn’t be myself, and talk about the fact that I’m gay or whatever. At Thanksgiving, we all sat around and talked about it, and there was another one of her friends there who was African-American, and we all sat down and talked about racism and watched 13th on Netflix and talked about how important it was. It was one of the most beautiful conversations I’ve ever had, because sometimes as an African-American person I feel like I can’t voice my opinion about how difficult it is to be not just an African-American person in the entertainment industry, but how scary it is to be black in America, in even 2017.

When it comes to Taylor, all I know is that she has been a sweet, amazing human being to me. When she calls me, it’s hardly ever to talk about her accomplishments or things that she’s going through. She calls me and says, “How’s your heart? Are you OK?” I’ve been around her an awful lot, and if it were some type of crazy, fake façade, I think I would have figured it out by now. I feel like it’s a genuine part of who she is, and she’s a human being. Has she made mistakes? Yes. Will she make mistakes again? Yes. But let the person in America who has not made mistakes raise their hand.

I think that I’m on my own journey; every artist is on their own journey. Maybe one day, Taylor will start being super-political, and using her voice to do the things that people think that she should be doing. But even then, she will probably be ridiculed for not being vocal enough, or not being on the right side. I don’t think that there is a way to win in this industry, so every person has to take their own journey at their own pace, at their own time, and do what they feel like is right. All I know is that Taylor has been nothing but sweet to me since day one, and if she asks me to do a video, I’m absolutely going be there.

I’m not apologizing for being a part of the video and doing four eight-counts of choreography in it. I thought it was a great piece of art. I thought it was awesome. It’s broken so many records and I’m proud to be a part of it. I don’t think I’ve sold out my race or my community — the gay community, the black community. I think that I was just in a piece of art that my friend made. I’m not issuing a statement to people about it to explain myself, because there’s nothing to explain. I’m not sorry that I did it, and I don’t think that it was a mistake. If I had a do-over, I would absolutely be there for another eight hours, in heels, dancing with her. ”


(This isn’t the whole interview – more in the link! But basically Todrick is wonderful.)

Taylor Swift:

So I have wanted to write this essay for quite some time now and finally here goes. Since Taylor Swift’s 1989 era she has been getting a lot of unnecessary hate. It seemed to have become a trend to jump on this hate bandwagon. I really was surprised to see the extremes people go to hate on someone they don’t even know. Sad is what it all is, a person whose heart is full of hate can never truly be happy.

Let’s start with people that have been claiming that Taylor is terrible to her fans. Taylor is actually one of the most fan loyal celebrities out there. She has been that way since the start of her career, from free meet and greets, to inviting fans over to her house and sending care packages to fans going through tough times. If I were to list all the things she has done for her fans it would take up the whole post. People were claiming that Taylor doesn’t care about her fans because she supposedly was suing them for selling merchandise with catchy phrases from her music or her images. Let’s think about this logically whether you are a fan or not you can’t use someone else’s work to make money off as that isn’t right. Being a fan doesn’t give you a free pass to do so. Let’s put it this way say I am a huge fan of a writer, I myself am a writer and I decided to include two pages from a book that, that writer wrote and claim it as my own to go on and sale it. Does me being a fan justify my use of those two pages of writing that aren’t my own, it doesn’t. If it was justifiable that would give way to people who aren’t fans to claim to be fans just to make money using that artist’s name/work.  I didn’t see anyone bring up Beyonce’s name since there were articles talking about how her team shut down a fan site that was selling unauthorised merchandise belonging to a 15 year old who went on to twitter to beg Beyonce not to sue. It is rather hypocritical to attack one artist, but not the other for doing the same thing. So let’s not act like you care about the mistreatment of fans, when your true intent is to demonise Taylor. If you truly cared about the treatment of fans the statement would be general rather than targeted at a specific artist. Especially when it isn’t just a single artist preventing the selling of unauthorised merchandise.

There also were people who were attacking her by yelling ‘how could you sue your guitar teacher after he made you who you are today’. He taught her how to play guitar and that isn’t all her job role requires, so let’s not try reaching that high as clearly you are failing in your attempt. He did bad mouth her mother to the media yet had the nerve to use Taylor’s name in his websites url to profit of. It would have been acceptable to in the description section of his site to mention that he taught the likes of Taylor Swift.

Also people were making claims that Taylor was removing all the videos that featured her music playing in them. One of them said that she got all the vines featuring her music removed. Think about this, why share the vines and show appreciation if she were only going to go and have them removed. Luckily enough I had liked the most popular vines featuring her music and they were still there even after these false claims. So people were going to extremes and creating things that weren’t true at all to tarnish Taylor’s image and most of this was being spread by a bunch of Katy Perry fans. Labels always remove music that is published online without acquiring the proper rights to it, the only way you’ll find videos still remain on sites like YouTube is when the audio has been altered to some degree.

Coming to Katy Perry, Bad Blood is in no way a track that attacks Katy in anyway way even if it is about her. It is a song that describes lyrically what most of us go through, in which we thought a person was one that we could trust but ended up being exactly the opposite. The dancers were the hot talk in this situation and yes they aren’t an artist’s property in anyway. I also get that they had formed a close relationship with Katy Perry, but as a dancer when you sign up for a tour you go in knowing the amount of dates etc. If the dancers leave part way through a tour it does have an effect on the artists show as it is difficult to find dancers and then put them through rehearsals to learn the choreography part way through the tour. Katy being a friend should have talked to Taylor first and let her know that she was back touring and intended on asking whether the dancers wanted to come back to join her tour. That is what being a friend entails.

Then people criticised her for lyrics in ‘Better Than Revenge’ claiming that she slut shamed Camilla Belle, she didn’t call her a slut, the line ‘You’re better known for the things you can do on the mattress’ talks in terms of the popular perception of Camilla and not what Taylor thinks of her.

Now let’s talk about people calling Taylor a ‘snake’ because of Kim ‘exposing’ her. Taylor did give approval for Kanye to go ahead with the use of the lyrics he had informed her of in his song ‘Famous’, however she hadn’t heard the full song and was unaware of him relating to her as a ‘bitch’ until the album release. Think about it if Kim outing Taylor was authentic it wouldn’t have been done through snapchat using clips that were pieced together to only show what Kim wanted people to see. If she was going to release the phone call she should have released it in its entirety. Anyone with the slightest level of intellect should be able to figure that out.

Those that haven’t heard her full discography and just focused on the singles, and haven’t bothered to watch her interviews in order to comprehend her growth as a person and artist continue to ignorantly claim that she always plays the victim. I mean there are so many examples of her acknowledging when she has been in the wrong or made a mistake like ‘Back To December’ and then you will also notice lyrics in her song ‘Style’ that depict realisation of knowing that there are two participants in a relationship.  

Taylor gets criticised a lot for not always posting about issues around the world on her social media pages, even though she continues to do a lot of philanthropic work and act rather than tweet. Although she has posted on social media to show support and acknowledge issues on several occasions. She gets attacked when she does post on social media and when she doesn’t, so she can never win either way. The thing about posting about issues or current affairs is that it helps create awareness; however awareness is pointless without action. Yes I would love for Taylor to post more in acknowledgement of issues affecting the world, but you can understand why she could be put off from doing so. After all she is human too and she has feelings just like you and me.

The VMA situation last year when Nicki went on a rant on twitter also resulted in Taylor facing backlash for responding to what Nicki had said. If you did follow Nicki’s tweets from start to finish during that moment it wouldn’t have been too hard for you to piece things together. Nicki was obviously hurt by the fact that ‘Anaconda’ a video that did garner a lot of attention and surely went down as one of the biggest music videos during that year went unnoticed in the ‘Video Of The Year’ category. She near the end changed her tone and started to talk about the under appreciation of POC in the industry, which is very real and sad that people of colour aren’t recognised and awarded for their great contributions to the entertainment industry as much as those that are white. However when you take the full train of tweets in that rant you can make out that the she was going of more at the fact that her video didn’t receive a nomination in the major category. It is easy to see why Taylor would take the tweet, in which Nicki said that being white and skinny is the way you get recognised, as an aim at her. As out of the all the nominees that year in the ‘Video Of The Year’ category ‘Bad Blood’ was the only video that fit that description.

It is okay to dislike an artist, but that does not give you the right to be hateful or disrespectful towards them. The haters were going to extremes by conjuring up and twisting things in order to diminish Taylor as a person. Hate prevents a person from seeing the entire picture and just grasping to parts that play in the favour of the view of the hater. That is what a lot of people were doing in relation to what I have discussed above. There is so much more that I could have talked about which would have led this essay to turn into an entire book.

Regardless of being famous and wealthy, celebrities are still human beings just like you and me. They have feelings and they get hurt by things people say about them. On top of that you cannot use the line ‘Who cares they won’t see it so it won’t affect them’ as a way of justifying the posting of hurtful comment

anonymous asked:

Ok, this will be another master post so could you do that copy and paste thing and if I run out of room and submissions just wait to post until I say POST because this will be long but good. Harry says a girl who he had a recent relationship with who had also affected him in the past couple of years has influenced a large part of his album. Now, we know the most recent relationship Harry was in was with Kendall as in the BBC interview, Harry says he hasn't dated since the beginning of February

“2)of 2016 (around the time Hendall broke up). Kendall would also fit the description as they were involved in 2013/14 and they have been friends throughout the years. But the problem is, I don’t think Harry and Kendall were that much in love. And I’m not saying this because I ship Haylor but because if they were then basically every piece of Haylor proof from 2014 onwards wouldn’t make sense. So I’ll start in 2013 after Haylor had broken up. We have Harry and Taylor breakup but then have a small
3)reunion (possibly only for hookups) in January 2013 in Cannes where they are together. They specifically aren’t seen together because they don’t want the public to know and articles are written about them. Then they cool off at the Brits (they are seen flirting and possibly hooking up with other people). But, by April, we have Harry missing Taylor as the boys tease him in Little Things. Throughout the rest of 2013, we have little hints of Harry missing Taylor such as assuming an interviewer
4)was talking about Taylor’s perfume, the VMAs, Harry’s friend tweeting him WANEGBT lyrics and he says please??, and then comes November. Harry and Kendall are seen together for the first time and it can be assumed their relationship started around then. However, Harry also says in an interview (regarding exes and Taylor) that sometimes if you have feelings for an ex, it’s ok to get back together with them. We also have MM come out which has Happily which Harry said he wrote about a relationship
5)in which your ex is with someone else and you want them back (could be about Tay bc she said in style that she tried to get over harry with other guys but couldn’t). Also about not caring what others say (the main cause of their breakup). By Taylor’s birthday, Harry tweets the Winding Wheel lyrics (while dating Kendall) on Taylor’s birthday as well as posts the Cannes sunset picture. While this is going on, not only is Harry dating Kendall, but he is also hanging out with Ed, Taylor, Courtney
6)Cox, and Johnny McCaid in Cox’s Malibu house (Courtney followed them all on the same day and she said it was really fun passing beer around and playing the guitar and this continues throughout Hendall 1.0). Gemma also hints that Harry may not like Kendall as much as everyone thinks as she tweets "trust me, Harry is putting his arm around Kendall [at the Eagles concert] to strangle her”. Then in February, Taylor writes 1989 with Style being the last song she writes. Although people think
7)were little more than a crush then and certainly not hooking up. Also Taylor implies that they were on and off more than once, so now would fit the timeline. This is just a theory, but I think maybe in January (detail about the man in styles is taking off his coat implying winter) Harry gave Taylor a ride home from hanging out with Ed and them and they hooked up (while he was dating Kendall yikes). We also have Taylor writing IWYW about Harry telling her that whole thing and he probably told
8)her at this time because they were friends. It would also make sense that Harry gave Taylor a ride home then because they had houses really close to each other. Then Kendall and Harry breakup seemingly amicably at the end of February except Kendall likes a post saying boys are mean and to eat vegetables do squats and wear red lipstick. Also in Feb/Jan of 2014, we have Harry pinning a post on his old Pinterest (it doesn’t exist anymore) about how beautiful and “vocally aweing” Taylor’s
10)performance of ATW at the Grammys was and how Red deserved a Grammy (thx Harry finally someone said it). Also, a fan sends him a direct with a picture of Taylor and he opens it. Anyway, Hendall breaks up and Harry, in the following month (March 2014 and throughout the rest of 2014) writes a string of songs that are almost positively about Taylor (I Love You, WDBHG, Just a Little Bit of Your Heart, Someday Maybe, Not Our Fault). Also, Harry gives I Love You to Alex and Sierra under his pen name
11)which is important because at this same time, Alex and Sierra are hanging out with Taylor because Sierra posts a picture of Taylor’s cat. Also, in that interview Alex and Sierra not only say that whoever wrote I Love You not only had a fling with Taylor but was also really good friends. We know for certain that throughout 2014, Harry and Taylor were friends as not only did this all happen, but Taylor also said she was “really close friends” with the person who 1989 was about in interviews as
12)well as the secret sessions. It is also important to note that Harry wrote it secretly and then, when a fan met Ariana Grande recently (this may be a troll) Ariana said JALBOYH was about a secret lover of Harry’s and then when another fan asked if it was Taylor she winked (COULD TAYLOR AND HARRY HAVE BEEN SECRETLY DATING IN 2014/HOOKING UP IN SECRET AS THE MEDIA WAS TOO MUCH FOR PUBLIC?). We all know what happens in 2015 but my point is this: if Hendall was that influential in 2014 none of
13)this would have happened and if it was, then all of this haylor proof couldn’t be true. The Hendall relationship resulted in single Kendall and Harry and Harry and Taylor writing tons of love songs about one another. If Harry really loves Kendall (and this was his longest relationship with her) then he wouldn’t have hung out with ed and Taylor, wouldn’t have hooked up with Taylor as style says, wouldn’t have posted winding wheel lyrics, wouldn’t have said he wanted to get back together with
14)an ex, wouldn’t have pinned a tweet about her brilliance, wouldn’t have opened that direct, and overall, wouldn’t have been involved with another girl (particularly his ex) while he had a girlfriend. From that relationship all we can conclude is that Harry and Taylor hooked up/were friends in 2014 and wrote songs about one another-they still had feelings for one another but one of them (Taylor) didn’t want to go on). Ok, so that was the most serious Hendall round and it had little impact on
15)Harry. Now for the yacht. We already knew they were friends in 2015. Can I mention though that even when they were friends then, they didn’t have some secret love as who did Harry write MITAM about? Yeah not Kendall, even though he could have if she meant that much to him. So Taylor was with Calvin and we have Harry inviting Cara and Kendall to a 1D concert and then they went on the yacht and I will say they were definitely more than friends but we also have to remember that Harry signed his
16)deal on the yacht and it just so happens Kendall is friends with all of those people. Ok, then by the end of January, they aren’t together anymore and what does Harry do? He thinks about Taylor just as he did in 2014. He tweets 22 lyrics on his bday as well as likes an insta pic from Paige reifler. He also tweets a lyrics by Norah Jones from “Come Away With Me” about wanting a lover you can’t have or want to come away to a secret place). Also, if you believe all of the hscox94/Spotify account
17)account stuff, there are subtl haylor vibes. The point being: he is single. And did he have to be single, no because he didn’t go away to film Dunkirk for another month or so. Then after the pictures are leaked, Harry and Kendall are seen shopping together in LA in April. Not a reunion, but simply proves they are friends-always have been probably always will be. Then, come September after Harry contributes some Haylor-like vibes to Another Man Magazine (possibly a reach but that poem and the
18)Stevie Nicks thing), Kendall and Harry are seen getting lunch in LA, but Harry’s team immediately confirms that they are only friends. Then it’s nothing until November, when Harry, as a friend, is invited to her bday party and they take a picture together, but more importantly, a picture is taken of Kendall making out with someone with Harry right next to them on his phone. Then on New Years Kendall is seen kissing ASAP Rocky or some other guy and then they avoid each other at the KOL concert
19)Since then, nothing. My point about this is: they are friends. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since they have many mutual friends, and split amicably both times around, and go to each other’s bday parties. Kendall is not at his 23rd though. Ok, now this is really recent, but Kendall basically confirmed she is having a friends-with-benefits type of thing with ASAP Rocky in her Harpers Bazaar article (everyone kind of suspected this already, they were seen at Coachella all touchy, and out an
20)about in London–note she wasn’t with Harry who was in London at the time but with ASAP). So once again, my point is they are friends. Harry may not love Taylor anymore, but it certainly wouldn’t make very much sense if the girl who influenced a huge part of his album was Kendall. In 2014, he was fine cheating on her and breaking up, in 2016, he was fine ending their relationship from the yacht and being friends, and in 2016/17 he is fine seeing her kiss other guys at her party and although
21)are friends, things might still be icy as they didn’t talk during KOL concert. I do think, since they split amicably and are still friends, that they might/are up to getting back together in that sort of friend-like way (Harry even says he has a couple of flames left in the BBC radio–and I think Kendall is one of them). I just think that the way Harry spoke about this girl in Rolling Stones, it just doesn’t fit to him and Kendall. He even said he wanted to give whomever not only a tip of the
21)but the whole cap and do you really think that girl is the same girl he had no problem watching kiss some other guy or didn’t talk to at a concert? If he did, I support him 100% and although I love Haylor, if it is about Hendall, that’s fine as long as he is happy. Besides the point of his music-of all music- is not to speculate but to listen and enjoy. So I did this for some fun I know I’m a loser but ultimately whoever it’s about it doesn’t matter because I will be buying and listening POST"

BLESS YOU FOR TYPING ALL OF THIS OUT AND SENDING IT TO ME! I don’t even know what to say except DAMN IT I MISS HAYLOR.

HARRY Styles is dating Victoria’s Secret model Camille Rowe, The Sun can reveal.

Friends say the One Direction superstar is smitten with the French-American who appeared on the cover of Playboy last year.

It is the third Victoria’s Secret angel he has romanced following on from Sara Sampaio, 26, and Nadine Leopold, 23.

Harry, 23, and Camille, 27, who share a friend in model Alexa Chung, 33, went to a gig in New York together at the weekend.

A source revealed: “Harry and Camille are in the early stages of dating. He’s very protective of his relationships so isn’t going to want to make a big show of things. They are well suited and seem happy.”

“She’s a real star on the rise. He seems besotted.”

Dunkirk star Harry’s close friend Nick Grimshaw nearly laid bare the secret during an interview last month. He hooked Harry up to a heart monitor to see what excites him and showed him a picture of Camille.

Grinning Harry said awkwardly: “I don’t know her. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person. I hate you all so much.”

Camille was discovered in Paris when she was just 18. She modelled for Louis Vuitton and Dior before moving to New York aged 21.

Camille is an aspiring actress and thought to have dated MGMT musician Andrew VanWyngarden and singer Devendra Banhart.

Harry had a romance with food blogger Tess Ward earlier year. He has also dated Taylor Swift, Caroline Flack and Kendall Jenner.

anonymous asked:

Taylor said at the ihearts something like for the first time she got someone to come home to after the tour. I guess that wasn't the case at all after the 1989 tour ended. I mean from what we saw he was still picking up Taylor from her own house till the very end of the relationship (the pictures where Taylor looked pissed af).

I think by home she meant kinda metaphorically, like she thought she had that special person who had her back at the end of the day. I believe they were already having issue by the time she made that speech, but she was desperately trying to save them.
