Garrett Hedlund will be the next guy to dump Taylor Swift over the phone


Oh, Swifty. Will you ever get it right? At least we can give Taylor Swift credit for trying, I suppose. Us Weekly reports this morning that Swifty and Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund went on a date. Apparently, it was a “low-key dinner.” If you remember the Jake Gyllenhaal debacle, you’ll know that Swifty’s favorite weekly magazine is Us Weekly, and that she and her friends/publicity team do strategic leaks to Us Weekly fairly often. After Jake and Swifty split, Jake visited Nashville and spent the night with Swifty, all of which was excessively documented by the magazine through lots of quotes and theories about Jake’s qualities as a man. What I’m saying is that Garrett Hedlund was somehow roped into going to dinner with Swifty, and she and her team leaked this story:

Down-home date night! Taylor Swift had a low-key dinner wtih Garrett Hedlund in Nashville April 1.

“It was their first time going out,” a source tells Us Weekly of Swift’s evening with the Tron: Legacy and Country Strong star, 26, who has been in Nashville recording a CD.
“They’ve been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together.”

Hedlund joined his date at 8 p.m. and was back at his hotel by 12:30 a.m. Swift, 21 — who won Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards April 3 and will continue her Speak Now tour May 27 — is taking things slowly after her fast-track romance and breakup with Jake Gyllenhaal last fall. (Back in February, she went on an L.A. date with Glee hunk Chord Overstreet.)

“She has actually spent time getting to know Garrett,” says the insider. “He’s cute — and he’s into country music! [She] likes that he’s a normal guy.”

I’ve read a few interviews with Garrett and I’ve noted how he presents himself publicly, and… I really hope he’s not into this. He comes across as a nice kid, but not really all that bright. Surprisingly “un-Hollywood” – he’s not out there pimping every single detail about himself and his projects, and I get the feeling he’s still got a lot to learn about the industry and how to present himself. I doubt he’s ready to start dating high-profile girls just to get in the tabloids.

Swifty, however, is completely ready to promote a new relationship. The last guy that she “dated” was that Chord dude, from Glee. So… Garrett is totally a step up from a dude named Chord. Ugh. Swifty is so predatory. Mark my words. It doesn’t matter, though. Garrett will be dumping Swifty over the phone soon enough, and then she’ll have even more material for her next album, Jakey & Garrett: Two Princess Ponies I Shall Never Ride Again.

    Great. Hope his people are not behind this. She needs to back off the celebrity dudes. She looks desperate and they look like attention whores at least.

  2. DGO says:

    If this is coming from her people, they’re not really doing her any favours.

  3. Sassy says:

    She has crazy in those eyes.

  4. LolaBella says:

    Et tu, Garrett?

    Seriously, what is going on with this girl? I get that she is young and is free to date, but geez let a little time go by between each guy!

    Also, if you’re a guy, why would you even accept a date with her?

    You know people will be skeptical of your relationship (and quite possibly your sexual orientation) and SHE WILL WRITE A TELL-ALL BREAK-UP SONG ABOUT YOU!!

    Is the publicity worth it???

  5. Hakura says:

    You’d think after all the experience she’s had with ‘fellow entertainers’, she’d know better. x_x

  6. sasa says:

    He’s cute. That’s all I got.

  7. danielle says:

    She needs to take a break from publicity for awhile. Date only people she likes, no one for show, and don’t call the tabloids with details!!!

  8. hey says:

    He must be gay since she only dates gay men.

  9. brin says:

    She needs to give herself a time-out.

  10. Quest says:

    Another one is gonna bite the dust…OMG this chic is such a stalker/clingon/slut.

    Here we go again, poor “innocent” Swifty ….gawd! The girl is sick

  11. carrie says:

    so he’s gay! sad for me and great for Toothy Tile!

  12. Heatheradair says:

    AHA – so, the crazy hag in me who has this irrationally visceral DIS-like of this girl just googled “is taylor swift’s hair naturally curly” BECAUSE after looking at these photos I realized – “ah – she’s faking us all out.”

    And most of the results indicate just what I thought: she uses a half-inch curling iron to make her “wavy” hair curl like so.

    I knew it.

    This kid’s a fraud :)

    Who dates wimps, but whatever – she’s got the emotional maturity of a 13 year-old if she’s still writing songs about the first time someone put his arm around her.

  13. EbonyShiksa says:

    Kaiser, I don’t know if you read all the comments or not, but you are a f-cking hilarious writer!

    “Jakey & Garrett: Two Princess Ponies I Shall Never Ride Again. Hahahaha! Why are you so funny??

  14. Mouse says:

    I admit it, I watched Eragon just because Garrett was in it.

  15. Rasputina says:

    @ Mouse – I did too. That boy’s got an angel face. Though what will be left of it, we are yet to see after Curling Iron McSerial Dater is done with him.

  16. Jayna says:

    She’s a gawky, gangly, cute-enough not gorgeous girl, who dates far above her sometimes or dates bad boys, and is going to keep getting dumped. She will learn. It’s part of growing up and maturing.

  17. fabchick says:

    She either loves gay men or is a undercover freak. She jumps from man to man. not a good look.

  18. Nicky says:

    Taylor’s status as a celebrity exists almost entirely on who she dates. When she isn’t attached to someone romantically, the media pays little attention to her because as an individual she isn’t interesting enough. Look at her recent European tour, apart from some strategic photo ops of her “shopping”, there was nothing to shill to the press so Taylor kind of fell under the radar for a few weeks. Now that she is about to release a new single and embark on her US tour, she needs some publicity. So unsurprisingly, Team Swifty has gone straight to their favorite tabloid and leaked details of her latest conquest.

  19. I hate her now. Garrett seems to be a nice guy. he’s probably now stunned their dinner is all over Us Weekly. and her people leaked this only because they knew this is the only date she’s getting from Garrett.

  20. jover says:

    To follow on your comments nicky isn’t it interesting that there are far more pics and discussion of her dating and clothes than her MUSIC. Isn’t she supposed to be a singer/musician. The fact that you refer to her as a celebrity is telling – go on youtube and type in hendrix, santana, sabbath, zeppelin, etc., and you will find thousands of clips of live concerts,jam sessions, covers, and tutorials of their music. BUt in swifty’s case her personality and “music” are so weak and lame there’s nothing to discuss, so we talk about her dating habits. She is a joke living in a contrived fantasy world created by her handlers. Btw, if this single is from her speak now cd that was released last November how is it considered new. How does the music industry get away with calling something new when the song was part of the original cd released often months prior to the “special” release of a selected single from said cd?

  21. Janey says:

    @Heatheradair – Ridiculous! She obviously has naturally curly hair – have a look at some of her childhood pictures…Either way, how would using curling irons make her a fraud? And what does that make the rest of Hollywood with their dyed to death ratty extensions.

    Regarding Garrett…he’s cute, she’s 21…why wouldn’t she?

  22. Kimbob says:

    Yes, Swifty is predatory. Also, the fake eyelashes are doin’ nothing for her. I actually feel sorry for all the guys she’s been out with.

  23. Iris says:

    16) I agree!

    I don’t like how obsessed she is with dating. No wonder guys can’t handle her for more than a few months. She’s immature and doesn’t have a realistic perception of love/the opposite sex.

    And really, Swifty? Emailing a guy and “hinting” that you’d like to get dinner? NO! I wish she played hard to get – then she’d be more likable. She just seems so easy (not even slutty, just easy)

  24. Patty says:

    I don’t get what’s so hot about this guy, only that the media tells me he is hot.

  25. paperjam says:

    They. Had. Dinner. Once. Eating at the same table doesn’t equal hot and heavy dating and/or undying love. Sheesh.

  26. Rasputina says:

    Janey, you’re not getting it.

    The fact is, that the only ‘do she seems to be wearing is a mousy curling iron tress one. Nobody looks down on curling your hair. However, if that’s the ONLY thing you can do with your hair, then it’s knd of sad, ain’t it? Especially if you’re filthy rich.

  27. di butler says:

    To Do List:

    Find words that rhyme with “Garrett” and “Hedlund.”

    Yay! Number one song for women who like Harlequin Romance books!!!111!!!!

  28. koala says:

    she’s starting to seem really slutty, unfortunately for her…

    she needs to take a major break! i don’t want to even guess how many d*cks have taken the old swifty for a ride.

    @27 dj butler

    That poor bastard. I see a banal, weepy song featuring ferrets in the future.

  31. Nicky says:

    @jover, this is my point, if her music was so strong it would stand up on it’s own but it doesn’t hence the reason why her team focus and push her other skill – serial dater (just kidding but you get my point). A lot of her success lies with clever PR, marketing and relentless promotion than actual musical talent. I understand her popularity – she’s a safe, generic pop star with mass appeal who is gracious to her fans. However strip away all the hype surrounding her and what you’re left with is a ordinary looking, young woman with a weak voice, basic instrumental skills (her banjo and ukulele are strung and played like a guitar) and a knack for writing songs which all have the same theme. Her dating resumé is what gets her the press attention, not her music.

  32. Harley says:

    I don’t like her. She seems stuck in junior high school – emotionally/fashion wise/relationship wise, etc. Her bubble gum, glitter and unicorns air just irks me.

  33. di butler says:

    @Zelda LOL. I can just see a page in her Lisa Frank diary: wear-it, fer-ret, Hedlund-done, fun, sun…….

  34. Michelle says:

    Funny thing is that he’s known for being a very private guy and if any of this is true, he’ll be gone soon. She’ll be rumored with another guy within days. Oh and let’s not forget….she’ll write a song about it.

  35. Karen says:

    ugh he is so hot. I hope this isn’t true because I had great hopes for him and dating taylor swift isn’t exactly what I had in mind..

  36. Lani says:

    Garrett is a BABE.

  37. fallen says:

    No, not Garrett he’s too cute for her! Man I dislike her so much.

  38. gee_gee says:

    Can I break up with her too? I am so tired of this girl and I don’t even listen to her music. Can’t we all take a break?

  39. ordinarygirl86 says:

    What happened to the rumors of him and Leighton being a couple? I was kinda hoping they were true…

  40. jover says:

    Thanks for the response Nicky I agree with your points – I would only quibble with your contention about her mass appeal – I would like to see the attendance figures at her concerts I’m guessing she’s not playing and filling stadiums for 2/3 hour concerts.

  41. Emma says:

    Jover, youre pretty wrong..she sells out every concert. Even if you don’t like her, have to look at the facts, and they say her concert is the hottest ticket anywhere!

  42. normades says:

    @brin; Agreed, she needs to give herself a time-out. She needs to stop trying so hard to get a bf, she’s starting to look pathetic.
