Love is dead! Hope is lost! If these two can’t make it, no one can!
Rumors hit the blogosphere this week that Taylor Swift and her One Direction boyfriend, Harry Styles, have broken up. The chatter began after Swift tweeted one of her own song lyrics: “‘Til you put me down,” from her song “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
…’til you put me down.

It’s not exactly solid confirmation, but tweeting a telling song lyric is the 2013 version of putting up a passive-aggressive AIM away message.
The context of the lyric is as follows: “I knew you were trouble when you walked in, so shame on me now. Flew me to places I’d never been, til you put me down.” Deep, right? Though the song was originally written about ne’er-do-well John Mayer, the connotation is pretty clear.
As we previously reported, Swift and Styles took a romantic vacation to the British Virgin Islands on January 1. But according to Business Insider, the couple had a blow-out fight while they were on holiday, and Swift caught a flight off the island of Virgin Gorda only three days later. Styles chose to stay in the tropical paradise, partying with billionaire Richard Branson on his private Necker Island.
“He did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while
hanging out with guests. He returned to Virgin Gorda in the early
morning hours looking like he had a raucous night,” reports a source, who provided this photo of Styles and Branson:
So the question is… are these two ever, ever getting back together?
