On Sunday night, Taylor Swift supposedly mocked Harry Styles during her show-opening performance of "We Are Never Getting Back Together," and now the 23-year-old pop songstress is dressing eerily similar to her One Direction ex-beau in her music video for "22."
Photos of the starlet's newest music video shoot surfaced Tuesday, and T-Swift is sporting a green beanie in the pics very much like the one that Styles has sported on several occasions. Check out the Yahoo story for proof. With lyrics like ďIt feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters, and make fun of our exes," it's hard not to think there's some kind of link.
Although the connection may seem direct, Swift told Ryan Seacrest in a recent interview that "22" wasn't about Styles.
"I wrote that about my friends, like finally I've got this amazing group of girlfriends and we tell each other everything, we're together all the time," Swift said. "And I think that was kind of the marker of me being 22, like having all these friends and there's all these question marks in your life, but the one thing that you have is that you have each other."
After wrapping the music video, the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer then tweeted that she almost forgot she was working while filming it:
Leaving LA now after the best day with my friends. Almost forgot it was a video shoot. Can't wait for you guys to see it.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 12, 2013
If you missed her supposed dig at Styles during the Grammys, take a look at the video below where you can hear her say, "He called me up and he was like, 'I still love you'," which Swift said in a British accent. She finished the mid-song speech with, "And I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys!' And we're never getting back together, like, ever."
Styles' One Direction boy band-mates encouraged him to "be the bigger person," and not retaliate against his ex, according to KTLA reporter Sam Rubin. Swift skipped the Grammys after-parties because of the "22" shoot the next day, and spent the night with her cat (see the Instagram photo below):
Video shoot early tomorrow, so my Grammy after-party situation looks like......... instagr.am/p/VlQc_XDvNz/— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 11, 2013
Think she did it to avoid Styles?
Swift and Styles were seen smooching on New Year's Eve and spent her 23rd birthday together in London before reportedly splitting in January. The One Direction heartthrob is just the latest in a long line of rumored boyfriends for Swift, including Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer.
Do you think Swift crossed a line at the Grammys? What do you think of the photos from the "22" shoot? Let us know in the comments.
