They say never date in your friendship group but what about dating within a whole demographic?
Things were bound to get ugly between Taylor Swift fans and One Directioners following the reported demise of the pop pairings’ short-lived romance, but now the proof is in the pudding.
Taylor and Harry Styles allegedly split after a new year’s tropical holiday turned ugly.
The aftermath? 1D ticket sales have skyrocketed while Taylor is now having a hard time pulling a crowd.
According to the Daily Mail, 1D’s concert sales have soared by 50 percent.
A spokesperson for UK ticket website Seatwave said that “the adulation received by 1D is one of a kind, and the boys’ fans are famously protective”.
The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer has also been slammed online for her string multiple high-profile relationships.
Jack Osbourne’s wife Lisa got particularly vocal on Twitter about the 23-year-old pop princess, saying that “I usually find out when Taylor Swift breaks up with someone before I even knew they were dating. That’s how fast these things happen”.
“Either Taylor Swift is bat s--- crazy and causes every guy to dump her, or she has too high standards for these poor guys! Droppin’ like flies.”
Taylor has made a career out of singing about break-ups, and now many internet trolls are questioning whether she is dating so heavily purely for song content.
We’ve got to hand it to her if she is! The young pop diva has got a pretty impressive list of past achievements.
Previous heartthrobs who have fallen for the Taylor charm include John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith and Conor Kennedy.
There’s always bound to be a division of assets at the end of a relationship, but when your fans (and your public sanity) are collateral, we’re betting you’ve gotta start watching where you invest!
