Harry Styles and Taylor Swift's "7 Hours of Sex"

Relationship was already confirmed.

by Anonymousreply 24612/15/2013

I'd call her a tramp if it weren't for the fact that every guy she's dated has either been underaged or gay.

Anything that gets her out of the music industry is good....yeah shes a nasty anti-vigin. God will be angry if you buy her music --- stop now and save your soul!!!!

As if. Surely the PR teams can come up something remotely plausible.

by Anonymousreply 912/04/2012

The lengths publicists and marketers will go to to make something happen is outrageous and hilarious. They made sure the "couple" were photographed going into HER hotel at 4 A.M. Harry conspicuously carried and overnight kit and a clean t-shirt.(Maybe he doesn't wear underwear or maybe he doesn't change them.)

This morning they are photographed as both conspicuously left, separately, to make sure everyone knew they spent the night together. Under the same roof, if not in the same bed. I'd bet Harry's boyfriend was already lubed up and waiting for him.

The fangurls and the fanbois are lapping it up. Mostly his fans are calling her a slut. So poor Taylor has made a grand bargain with the Devil: She gets to have a new, public "boyfriend" to help promote her album, and Harry gets the additional publicity and expanded markets her fans open up to him.

The onyl thing is Harry is considered aplayer, and a "stud" (don't laugh) and Taylor has promoted a goody goody image which is now at risk. I guess we are the only ones who realize Harry is gay.

The powers that be must have figured the Selen and Justin thing might be getting ready to explode and the Robsten Twilight is finally over or definitely in it's deaththroes. So Taylor and Harry are the new IT couple. Except they aren't.

DL is not even able to keep up with this girl's actions. Now that's saying something.

by Anonymousreply 1412/04/2012

Maybe at 42 I'm too old to appreciate it, but I remember being 18 very well, so I can see Harry being attractive to another young guy. I can. But he's too young for me.

I can't even picture them kissing. Kissing Taylor would have to be like kissing a 12 year old who is imitating "sexy." Harry looks like one of those demons who used to try to get the 15 yr old virgins to give it up, while he secretly lusted for the captain of the football team. There is no way these two are getting it on.

by Anonymousreply 1512/04/2012

That 'insidery' creature (with a too-invested whilst not being close enough-sounding story) that appeared on the Nick Grimshaw thread about a month ago dropping hints on some unnamed girl would have been laughed out of town had they named Swift there and then.

Shady piece anyway, because there's no way Nick Grimshaw has invested all that time and effort for the past year+ to act as gooseberry so Harry Styles can use him to 'talk to' Taylor Swift. What planet these PR people are on I've no idea.

There's some talk that Harry has no say in this and is being forced to do it but who knows. Maybe he's taking the heat off someone else. I do know the things being said about he and Grimshaw in particular lately would have been worrysome for his brand-hungry backers and reps.

But, still, hooking up with Taylor Swift is akin to donning a giant rainbow flag. What better place to start, I guess?

It is obvious the park stroll and hotel pictures were ready-to-go camera ops though. Harry can disappear for days on end with discretion (so can Taylor) even around other big stars so it's no real stretch to assume he could visit Taylor Swift more discreetly than making it look like a sex call at the front door twice in a row.

Despite what it's being made to look like though, there's nothing to say they aren't friends. A guy can have a girl friend, though of course they will know the way it looks to the outside world. I'd expect some PDAS soon, to make it look extra ridiculous.

Only good thing of late was an interview with Louis wanking an indoor plant off in front of Harry. I still hope those two are knocking boots.

Seriously, I do wonder if Taylor Swift girl is gay?

No sarcasm. Just the modus is always the same. She took absolute howls of derision from the internet for 'dating' Jake Gyllenhaal. Literally, about 3 people bought it and their PR brought it to an abrupt end because people were just laughing. Not to mention the rest.

But then she bounces back to seemingly pick up (or that's how it's being played out) yet another strongly-rumoured fruity type. A real person would have more of a sense of self, no? But if you are gay, and desperate to cover for yourself too, then you'd go to those lengths time and again imo.

Also, her and Harry's backstory is ludicrous. You'd never trust this guy again if you buy that he dumped Taylor and went off with at least one other chick at around the same time.

The press' desperation to link her and Styles is also interesting. They're assured of stories and pics for months. She spent far more time with Ed Sheeran recently. The DM did hint at something there but it was never blown into epic proportions after 1 day like this.

All pretty atypical of the media and PR behaviour. I hear Modest! Management are absolute cunts as well. One Direction is their main, if only, cash cow.

R18, what do you think of the Taylor Lautner thing?

by Anonymousreply 1912/05/2012

I would bet the farm that Swift is lesbian or bi, leaning strongly towards women. So, any of her "boyfriends" are immebiately suspect...

Taylor Swift IS a virgin. She only has anal sex!

by Anonymousreply 2112/05/2012

I don't know anything about that, r19. I suspect Taylor Lautner is man-friendly given the numerous rumours and hints on it?

I saw a chart of men Taylor had been linked to yesterday. Many of those named had had gay rumours or were the type to be aspiring or looking for a career boost: Chace Crawford, Zac Efron, Lautner, Jake G, John Mayer (remember the 'kiss' with Perez that got buried?), among others.

Taylor possibly being gay herself was something that came to me over time, just watching the way her life gets played out. There was also a blind item awhile back with people guessing her. Speculative, and could be someone else, but if I can find it I'll link it.

Did Taylor Lautner & Taylor Swift beard for each other?

R24, Taylor Swift's next photocall with Harry will be stepping out with a dishevelled hairdo. They monitor us, but of course you know.

Those shades he wore the first hotel day look like the ones he said he once dropped down the toilet.

This is nothing compared to the Rob Kardashian/Rita Ora Twitter drama of today, unless they can find some way of writing Harry into that one too.

The only thing that throws the gay and beard theories off is her relationship with disgusting straight pig John Mayer.

This thread literally FEELS infested by the loons who've moved into the Prancing Pony Inn: London Branch on the (endless) threads re: One Direction and some BBC radio host.

[quote]They made sure the "couple" were photographed going into HER hotel at 4 A.M. Harry conspicuously carried and overnight kit and a clean t-shirt.(Maybe he doesn't wear underwear or maybe he doesn't change them.)

Actually, Taylor got home at 4am BY HERSELF and was photographed by all the paps staking out her hotel. Harry arrived an hour LATER, clearly hoping the paps had left, but unfortunately a few stragglers remained, enough to capture all of two seconds of video of him walking in. He was carrying a large bag, not a "kit," which had more than enough room for a full change of clothes and Dopp kit. Finally, the hotel in question is the Bowery Hotel in NYC and has no "back door" of any sort.

Do try to keep your fangurl facts straight, hon.

What is LJ and is it easy to join / post in?

by Anonymousreply 7303/12/2013

I'm afraid the webmaster must simply have become annoyed with these threads. All the other explanations are nonsensical.

Maybe they've come to see them as the heir to the notorious "Prancing Pony" threads of old (obsessive LOTR shippers), which were banned as well after a while. I'd consider this a very unfair comparison, because those threads were all over the forums, and had a very fanatic tone (at least that's what I've heard - I didn't visit DL much at the time), whereas the Nick/Harry discussion has always restricted itself to one thread at a time, and has (in spite of some "shipping" tendencies) kept a compratively objective tone (or at least not a batshit crazy one.)

But then DL has always been run somewhat arbitrarily. (Discussions of soap operas are banned as well for some reason.)

I was going to suggest continuing the discussion in the general 1D thread (and then in consecutive general threads), and tolerate non-Nick related contributions, because this might avoid giving off the "cultish" vibe the more specific threads seems to have given off.

But now this one has been closed don as well. Apparently the webmaster doesn't want the discussion to continue at all. Rather annoying.

by Anonymousreply 7403/12/2013

Yeah, maybe a separate forum is a better idea, R131. I don't really like DS and lj will get confusing when it comes to following different conversations. It's good to have them as back-up though. It would be lovely if you could set it up, if everyone else thinks it's a good idea too.

Okay, I'll set it up I can always delete it if it doesn't work. Might take a while, but I'll be as quite as I can. I'm pretty sure I can set up anon posting LG so don't worry. I think we'd all miss you if you didn't come along.

I seriously don't get all this cloak and dagger angst-y shit. Why doesn't one of you just start a blog or a facebook page or whatever?

Why is this such a problem for you? They may be incredibly dull, stupid and fake but Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are both public figures. They are fair game for gossip, innuendo and general internet discussion.

The same holds true for whatever "closeted celebs" you have devoted yourselves to discussing.

by Anonymousreply 14203/12/2013

R132 - Yes, that's why we are a little puzzled as why three threads have been closed on the subject today. If you have any ideas upon why they would be welcome

As to the cloak and dagger stuff, it is more general confusion than anything else!

C, are you talking about the jackets?

R137, thanks. Have just posted. Already hate it.

Can all agree on just the one place to post? (Although preferably as a back up for here only?)

by Anonymousreply 14603/12/2013

R132 - I know most of us are mystified by our own interest but currently the UK press is absolutely obsessed.. Real mix of posters gay/straight 20s - early forties

a few reasons 1) hiding from the evils of fan tumblr girls who insist on bombarding threads/chat with crap if we go near there 2) Brit boards are a bit more sensitive particularly around things like Dom/sub discussion, graphic chat and drug use (DS in particular) 3) wanted to keep the discussion open to anons whilst avoiding teen girls

As I said its probably one of the the best threads I've been involved with; witty, well researched; occasionally bitchy and I had hoped that while a bit single minded and in the gentler side of DL we fit right in. It appears I was misguided.

The only thing in our defence I would say is that we never invaded any other thread, only had one going at once and viciously defended DL against fangirlis.

by Anonymousreply 14703/12/2013

C, oh I see! Well they have let this one remain open so maybe we can stay here now? (with a new thread?)

R141, thanks (apologies for being such a tech imbecile)

by Anonymousreply 14803/12/2013

Hey All,

I think R32 has been kindly trying to explain the thread closure. Prancing Ponies is DL history referring to a group of posters obsessing and taking up residence (a good story actually). Anyway, I think we will probably be closed down altogether soon but suspect our new friend is giving us time to relocate.

I suggest the LJ becomes a permenant last resore backup as it is least likely to ever be closed.

From tomorrow or when we get shown the door from here, I'll be posting in the newly created DS thread as I think that's our best chance to continue the open nature of this discussion. If we get locked out elsewhere or anyone manages to conquer our own forum post on the live journal page and we can head there.

Absolutely gutted -

You have to admit it's strange that the widespread rumours about one of the biggest pop stars in the world being in a long-term gay relationship should be one of the few topics banned from discussion on a gay gossip forum.

by Anonymousreply 15103/12/2013

Yeah, I prefer the DS option - soon as I'm approved. Question - are we using the old NG and HS thread there, or creating a new one?

by Anonymousreply 15203/12/2013

So are we:

- Staying here until pushed (gets my vote)

- going to DS and If so where?

- going to LJ (& is it one big thread? Multiple threads or what?)

- going to to the proboard thing? (How will we know when it's ready?)

And how are we going to tell everyone where we are going? I get the impression everyone is already somewhat dispersed?

by Anonymousreply 15303/12/2013

R151 one of the best things about DL is its arbitrary nature and acerbic wit. If you look at their popular threads it's random, sometimes topical but mostly original. After 50+ threads about a predominantly Brit story based in London I imagine they got bored of us clogging the front page. They don't tend to do in depth detailed discussion in my experience. To understand better this may help.

by Anonymousreply 15403/12/2013

LG - I think the general feeling at the moment is to wait and see how DS goes once everyone can log on. The link to the thread is a couple of pages back, I imagine the LJ will stay semi active as backup until a decision is made.

by Anonymousreply 15503/12/2013

LG this is my plan

1. Go to bed - am freaking knackered 2. Post in DS at link below tomorrow and continue until pushed or a PROBoard (whatever that is) appears.

3. Keep LJ bookmarked - if we get pushed from DD or I lose everyone I'll head back there and post.

I plan to stay here on DL. I have no desire to go to LJ or DS where the censorship is sure to be rigid and one-sided. I'm so sick of the "Nick and Harry ONLY" bullshit and I'm sure it would only be worse over there.

I have been saying for several threads now, why can't there just be a general 1D discussion where Nick can be discussed too in relation to Harry? It was much more fun back in the old AssofLouis threads, there were so many more points of view. Besides, you can't discuss Nick without discussing Harry, and you can't discuss Harry without discussing 1D. This has been proven over and over in all of the Nick threads. Can't help but wonder if Nick himself has been behind all of this somehow (adjusting tin hat as I type).

Anyways, I will be camping out here on DL. L Girl, I have pitched a tent and collected some firewood... would you mind getting the fire started? I will be in the woods setting traps and collecting berries for breakfast, be back soon...let me know if anyone else plans to camp out (stay on DL) too and I will collect extra.

Seriously, I have the $18 to join and start a new thread, LGirl/others let me know if you want me to start a new thread and I will do it tomorrow (Wednesday). And if so, lets decide on a "safe" title for the thread.

by Anonymousreply 20503/12/2013

LG, you're such an idiot about gayness it's unbelievable. Why do you feel so entitled to post on this board? Typical lesbian-fearing lady who wants to coo over cute gay boys but can't give actual gay people the space to have a few places on the internet that aren't overrun by straight people.

by Anonymousreply 20603/12/2013

Wait, let me explain... when I spoke of censorship I was not referring to DataLounge, I was referring to certain posters here who "censor" discussion of anyone else but N/H. Just wanted to make that clear.

Carry on...

R214 shed loads of people have joined the forum which is titled N and H so you aren't alone. I'm sure there is room for more than one discussion. Clearly we were all too much for 1 thread anyway :) we'll work it out, I'm sure.

by Anonymousreply 21603/12/2013

RM, I know you did. The problem is that it is too hard to segment 1d/Harry/Nick because they have become so intertwined. As I said earlier, you can't discuss one without eventually discussing the other(s). So the various threads succeeded in going nowhere and likely pissed off the DL community/admin.

R210, I agree a 1d/nick/BreakfastShow thread would be great. Without restrictions on who/what is discussed. I will give it some time to hear other's input as to whether they would be interested in the thread and suggestions on title name.

I decided to scoot over to the new LJ board they they are already planning to do away with the anon option and locking the board so no new members can join without approval. LOL what is the fun in that???? I WANT TO GOSSIP ANONYMOUSLY AND UNCENSORED DAMMIT! :) My guess is they will all be back over here within a few days.

by Anonymousreply 21703/12/2013

From the last few responses it seems there would be a place for a broader discussion thread and a Nick/Harry thread. I don't think people would be happy to have Nick chat in amongst 1D stuff and fair enough.

But I'm just wondering if two new threads would annoy the admins and be shut down again? I suppose we can only try.

by Anonymousreply 21803/12/2013

Just saw your post MOC. I guess what I was thinking would go in a 1D thread was stuff I've mentioned before. How they're doing on tour, in interviews, their achievements, what they're doing in their spare time etc. That would have a bit of Nick in relation to Harry, but the focus for me would be 1D.

As much as I love following the H/N stuff, I'd like to talk about the others independent of Harry/Nick on occasion.

But you're right that that stuff would probably lead back to H/N as it's so interlinked (plus H/N is juicy gossip wise), so perhaps there's no point in trying to seperate them. Your idea of a 1D/breakfast show thread is good.

by Anonymousreply 21903/12/2013

Have followed all the Nick/Harry/Louis threads. Prefer to stay here. Haven't paid for a membership in years,

Exactly. These theads were attracting tons of non-DLers to the site. The H/N posters were posting constantly, many of them not DL regulars, with no intention of paying.

The footballers in love threads may be the next to go but they do discuss homosexuality in football.

I think any Prancing Ponies (as the Harry threads came viewed) or soaps threads are going to be shut down. Sad, as--I pointed out earlier--it is gay gossip.

Sadder still, as the Days thrrads were discussing a real plot on a broadcast network daytime soap, an open attempt to have a gay "supercouple," which had never happened.

by Anonymousreply 22003/12/2013

"Exactly. These theads were attracting tons of non-DLers to the site. The H/N posters were posting constantly, many of them not DL regulars, with no intention of paying."

I agree, that is what is probably behind the closure of the grimmy/1d threads. And really, I don't blame DL at all. I also enjoy many other threads here and have been planning to join for awhile but never got around to it... until tonight. I think if more of the regular 1d/grimmy posters fork over the measly $18 then maybe the threads would stay open. But even if they don't, I will still be here for the many other threads so whatever.

LGirl, what "interesting post" over here were you referring to on LJ?

by Anonymousreply 22103/13/2013

Those threads started sucking when everyone was being so bossy about who could be talked about and who couldn't. Who cares.

If anyone is interested I'd like to talk about how badly Louis fucked up his knee the other day, and how it will affect the tour because he's currently hobbling around.

Harry's new? publicist that may or may not work only for him, and now issues denials. Part of a new strategy since Taylor and Villain of the Year Award?

Nick's new show, and if we think it will be successful, also will he be stretched too thin.

And, Tina Daheley, the news reader on the Breakfast show, she and Nick have a great banter. Anyone know anything about her?

by Anonymousreply 22203/13/2013

She has absolutely terrible taste in men...she and Katy Perry must have very similar DNA in that regard.

by Anonymousreply 22403/13/2013

IMHO, the silly fighting between the Larry and Grimmy folks ruined it for everyone.

I don't think the WM was worried about a name being mentioned. Most of the posters seem to be passing allong UK rumors.

This is a US site and most of the gossip alluded to here is still surrounding H & L. No one knows Nick.

One of the funniest things I read recently was how Harry got hit in the cock by a flying shoe and Louis couldn't wait to kiss his boo-boo.

Well it looks like many have migrated to the freeforum board. I will just be hanging around here on DL. If anyone wants to discuss here I will be glad to start a thread. But I think it should be a general thread to include harry/1d/nick/brkfst show and keep it to one thread so that we don't upset other DL'ers with numerous scattered threads. As I said before, it's hard to separate them anyways as the discussion topics overlap and you can't discuss one without eventually bringing up the others. Here's my suggestion for a thread if we decide we want one:

1D/Grimmy/BreakfastShow...and AssOfLouisRedux


Or, we can just take a break from posting on those topics on DL for awhile if that's what people want.
