Swift at last night's AMAs, Styles being sensitive but playful in London earlier this month

Taylor Swift only recently lost her ticket to American Royalty (the only thing she wants more urgently than tennis bracelets and being able to turn into hundreds of butterflies) by breaking up with Conor Kennedy. Surprisingly, she’s apparently rung all the weepy ballads and empowered midtempo jams out of their split, though, because she’s moved on.

…To One Direction‘s Harry Styles.

Apparently Mario Lopez (a trustworthy source, for sure) saw them “canoodling” (no one’s word) on the set of X Factor last week. He then revealed the details on his radio show (he has a radio show??) (what is radio?):

“Taylor Swift was the special guest performer, and [here’s] a little inside scoop for you,” Lopez told his listeners. “During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, ‘Hey, Mario, how ya doing?’ And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor.”

The “Red” singer and the British boy-bander “walked off hand in hand,” Lopez added, announcing, “So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction — you heard it here first. [They’re] officially hanging out, I can say that much.”

E! news apparently also caught the couple doing couple stuff, reporting, “Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon …He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage, After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing. He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off.”

As exciting as it is to learn that Styles fireman carried Swift from point A to point B, the most exciting thing about their relationship is that Styles is famous enough for Swift to devote a whole album to their demise!
