The end of 2009 has not been good for celebrity romances. First we saw Jake and Reese go their separate ways, then the Sarandon/Robbins shocker hit, and now it’s been confirmed that everyone’s favorite toothy twosome, Taylors Lautner and Swift, have also broken up. That cheering you hear? Members of Team Jacob, celebrating that their curses on the blond songstress worked.
I really thought these two were going to last a little bit longer. In fact, I had visions of a smiley, happy wedding in four or so years, followed by smiley, happy, homecoming king and queen babies — all named Taylor. Since I’m a kinda cynical gal at times, I can’t help but wonder if maybe the country crossover star and the New Moon hero are actually still together and the whole breakup has been staged so that they can suddenly reunite when the time comes to promote the movie in which they star together (as a couple, mind you): Valentine’s Day. I wrote before how I thought this movie looks absolutely horrid despite its all-star lineup… so I’m sure any buzz around its cast members would be a good thing for ticket sales.
Here’s a new trailer for you that gives more face-time to the doomed duo. I still think it looks really bad.
Does anyone want to make a bet whether or not the Taylors will get back together in late January/early February, right before Valentine’s Day hits theaters? Or are you all too busy blasting “You Belong With Me” and weeping for what could’ve been for the young lovebirds?
