Well, there goes another one: Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have broken up, the L.A Times reports. Given Swift's penchant for writing relatively scathing songs about boys that she's been with, all signs point to a #1 hit about her latest failed relationship.
Does 'never ever ever ever getting back together' apply to Conor? We don't know, we also forgot the words to her latest hit. "They quietly parted ways a while ago," a friend explained to US Weekly. "It's been over a month since they've even seen each other," the friend added. "With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year." So how will Taylor Swift make loads of money out of this one? We've had some lyric ideas, perhaps; "Oh Conor, we're breaking apart, but you'll never, ever, break my heart." Is that rubbish? Yeah it is, plus Swift is way more subtle than that in her tunes. Just replace "Conor" with "Boy" and you're onto an undecipherable code for sure.
Taylor Swift's current album Red is flying off the shelves worldwide, breaking records as it goes. But she owes a lot to the myriad lads she's left behind in her wake; they've provided the fodder for all her teenage angst based lyrics, shrouded in an insanely catchy prison of country pop melodies. And good luck to her.
