Buzz surrounds Taylor Swift as she prepares for her upcoming “Red” tour.
Rumors are surfacing that the singer has possibly rekindled a prior romance with her ex-boyfriend and future tour mate, Ed Sheeran.
Swift is known for having high profile boyfriends and for choosing fellow musicians as partners. She has dated both John Mayer and Harry Styles of the band One Direction in the past. According to a source close to the singer, Swift and Sheeran “briefly dated” last spring. By all accounts, the short liaison ended amicably and the two enjoyed their time together.
The two artists collaborate on a duet titled “Everything Has Changed” for their upcoming tour. When combined with eyewitness accounts of Sheeran entering and leaving Swift’s hotel room at odd hours, their collaboration has led some to speculate that the romance is back on.
As the band Journey once said, “They say that the road ain’t no place to start a family.” Further complicating issues is the fact that Sheeran is a friend of Harry Styles, Swift’s ex-boyfriend. Observers will have to wait and see if there is any truth to the rumors, and if Swift’s next album will be filled with more breakup songs.
Meanwhile, 35-year-old rapper Kanye West has once again criticized singer Swift publicly.
On February 23, while performing a concert at the London Hammersmith Apollo, West ranted:
“Taylor Swift beat Beyonce at the Grammys? Beyonce be dancing in heels and sh**.”
Although the concert included rants against other people including Beyonce, this comment did surprise many given that West’s criticisms of Swift have damaged his reputation and business in the past.
In 2009, many fans, music industry celebrities and moneymakers, and critics alike actually turned against West after he interrupted Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards during her acceptance speech. His was angry that Swift won the Best Female Video category instead of Beyonce.
