When you are as successful and pretty and rich as Taylor Swift, you think you'd be able to get any man you want -- provided he's not gay, and probably even some of them. But apparently even Taylor gets turned down. Sources are blabbing that Tay set her sights on 21-year-old pretty boy actor Douglas Booth. But Booth, who was at a party with Taylor, apparently had other ideas and repeatedly brushed the blond singer off.
Sources tell the New York Daily News' Confidential gossip page:
Taylor kept on making an effort to flirt with Douglas, but he gave her the cold shoulder and was extremely dismissive towards her. She would get a drink and then approach him; she would chat with [actress] Hailee Steinfeld and then re-approach him; she was even trying to chat him up near the flowers on display. It was all very funny for those of us watching.
Funny? You people are cruel and heartless! Anyway, supposedly it didn't end there. The source continues that Taylor then drowned her sorrows in the bathroom:
Taylor and Hailee were chatting about Douglas while they all touched up their makeup. Taylor was whining and complaining about his aloofness toward her. She looked like an animal circling its prey, when she tried to get his attention.
Whoever this "source" is should be ashamed for following girls to the bathroom ... and now we know this source is female. Anyway, whether or not any of this is true, it's probably not as easy for Taylor to score grade-A boy meat like she once could. Anyone who dates her knows that, unless they end up married, he's going to get a song written about him. "Did you not Wikipedia me before you called me up?" Taylor asked New York magazine about guys who are surprised to find themselves dissed in lyrical form.
Maybe not everyone wants everything they did wrong in a relationship -- at least according to Taylor -- blasted over the airwaves. But maybe this never happened, as it sounds distinctly like the kind of thing someone on Booth's PR team would plant to raise his profile.
I suspect Taylor will eventually settle down with a dude who understands her creativity and her muse. I just hope he doesn't piss her off.
Do you think Taylor is going to have a hard time finding a boyfriend?
