Devastating news, you guys. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have broken up; which means no more awards show embraces, public declarations of love and, saddest of all, no more swan goals. It’s a terrible day for those of us who thought these two might go the distance or, at the very least, last a little longer than 15 months. But hey, 15 months is a long time. While we hoped there was going to be more to their story, things just fizzled out as these things are wont to do.
According to most of the mags, there was “no drama,” it all ended in a “mature fashion,” and it “just wasn’t working anymore.” And, yes, that happens. But according to E! News, it was Adam (Calvin Harris’ real name) that did the dumping.
“Adam really liked Taylor, she was not the type of girl he ever dates and he liked that,” a source told E! News. “He liked how innocent Taylor was and that she had a good caring heart. Taylor’s heart was more in it then he was. He started to lose interest over the past few months, but really tried to not just break up.”

The source added that they had compatibility issues and the relationship wasn’t progressing the way Tay wanted it to, though that could be because they were more “friends than lovers.” In any case, we can’t wait to see what happens next.
Considering this was Taylor’s longest, most significant and most public relationship to date, we can’t help but wonder if she’s already working on her next album. The timing couldn’t be better, what with 1989 being out for a while now and so much material percolating over the past, oh, hmm, 15 months.
But this is a brand-new Taylor. Will brand-new, platinum-blonde, squad-goalie Taylor resist writing a bunch of songs about her time with Adam? Ah, probably not. Considering what she was able to mine from her flings and short-lived relationships with past dudes, just think about what she can come up with when genuine love is involved. We. Can’t. Wait. But, man, we’re so going to miss this.
