Oh, no -- word is Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend, everyone! We best start taking notes now, as it's almost 100 percent likely that we're going to have to hear a song about this relationship over and over and over and over again down the road. At least, this time, she appears to be with someone who is a far better match for her than, say, skeezy John Mayer or potential closet case Jake Gyllenhaal. In fact, I'm thinkin' new rumored BF, Glee star Chord Overstreet, might be the best match ever for Taylor.
Now, let me get something out of the way. Taylor drives me nuts. I get it, people think she's adorable and oh-so-modest (I do not buy that "Me?!! Really!????" act -- blech!) and worst of all, talented. Yeah, some of her tunes are catchy. But "You Belong With Me" (the song and the video) is a BLATANT rip-off of a track by Saving Jane called "Girl Next Door."
In other words, she's just not the earnest, innocent -- or most importantly -- original songwriter she would have everyone believe.
That said, I'm ALL for Taylor finding the right guy and settling down!
Chord seems to fit the bill to a tee. First of all, he's equally pretty. Also, he's from Nashville, and his dad is a country music singer-songwriter. And in addition to having sweet pipes he showcases on Glee, Chord knows how to play the mandolin, drums, and guitar. Aww ... he and Taylor could totally have a brood of REALLY blond, Leave It to Beaver-ish, musically inclined kiddos someday! How Sound of Music would that be?
But more realistically, in the nearer future, does this pairing mean that Taylor's going to end up on Glee? I think YES!
Oooh, oooh, I've got it ... Taylor could play Sue Sylvester's long-lost NIECE! She's all shy and nerdy at first (you know, because she wears GLASSES) -- but then, out of the blue, the Sylvester in her comes out! She ends up giving Santana and Quinn a run for their money, takin' a cue from Aunt Sue and pushing them out of her way in the hall, while warbling, "Sam belongs with me!!! Yeah, you'll see!!!" (If you're reading this, Ryan Murphy, call me -- I want to help you pen that plotline!)
Sadly, judging from Taylor's track record, and the fact that she and Chord are still, like, Justin Bieber-ish young (you know, relatively), I'm not going to place any bets that she's preggers -- a la Ashley Simpson -- by 23 or anything like that. Then maybe she'll be so darn happy that she'll run out of fakey, "oh-my-heart's so breaky" diary entries-turned-radio hits ... well, one can hope.
