Taylor Swift Wants a British Boyfriend — Tom Odell or Ed Sheeran?
Never mind Harry Styles. He and Taylor Swift were never really right for each other anyway. We love the idea of Taylor taking some "me" time for herself, but she's reportedly open to the idea of finding another boyfriend — a British one.
According to RadarOnline, Tay had a good time at the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday and flirted and danced after the show at a Universal party. “Taylor was hanging out with a lot of British music stars at the after-party, and she was repeatedly overheard saying she would love to find herself a British boyfriend,” an eyewitness told Radar. “She seemed to be having a whale of time and was the center of attention, which she appeared to love."
According to E! News, Taylor was spotted leaving a pub Thursday night and heading out to the members-only Groucho Club with 22-year-old British singer-songwriter Tom Odell, who had won the Brit Award for Critics' Choice. Tom and Taylor were the subject of past romance rumors when he covered one of her songs and they tweeted to each other about it. Tom commented on the flirtation rumors, at the time, telling Spinner, "That's odd, isn't it? That's crazy. That's mad. Well... maybe she is. Quite nice. She's a pretty girl. ... I've never met her before, so it's strange, flirting with her. But if she is, then cool. I should have flirted more back, maybe."
Apparently they managed to flirt in person this week!
However, we're also fond of the idea of Taylor eventually, someday, getting together with British singer Ed Sheeran. They seem to just be friends at this point, but she recruited him for her tour by sending him a text, asking him along. They have a duet on her album, Red, and he said they would probably be writing together on the road. "We're male and female, but we do exactly the same thing like we're both the same age, we both write songs with guitars we both tour playing acoustic music and that's kind of it," Ed told MTV. "We've got a similar sense of humor. I guess we just have a lot in common."
There have been dating rumors about them before, but they’ve been shot down. So maybe they aren't feeling the romance thing at this point, but ... maybe someday? He seems like a good guy, and they clearly get along well. Check out their tweets from his 22nd birthday, along with his reference to her own song, 22:
@taylorswift13 I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty damn 22 right about now
