Poor Taylor Swift can't seem to catch a break. On the heels of her breakup from British boy wonder Harry Styles of One Direction, rumors of an alleged sex tape recently surfaced and drove the Internet wild.
But wait just a minute before you Google "Taylor Swift sex tape" (seriously, dude). The whole thing turned out to be a phishing scam banking on Haylor's likability, reports Yahoo.
A Facebook message that read "The famous singer Taylor Swift had her iPhone hacked Monday and a sex tape between her and former boyfriend Harry Styles has been leaked on the Internet. Taylor's publicists are trying to take down all of the websites hosting it, but we found a working one! Watch the video before it's taken down!" led the many clickers to a form where they had to fill out their personal details. We're hoping no one in their right mind went through with it, but hey, sex sells.
And since it does, the tabloids are now competing to run the most intimate detail about Taylor Swift's love life. Star magazine wrote that "all she wants to do is kiss for hours, which is probably why none of the guys she dates stick around," according to Hollywood Life. OK! magazine printed that "lyrics have been written [about Harry]," insinuating that Taylor is already recording heartbreak songs about her last beau.
Another report says Styles, who just turned 19 in the company of a stripper, doesn't care about Swift's songs and doesn't care if she writes one about him like she did about John Mayer or Jake Gyllenhaal. Yet a different report says the two love birds will reunite after they both perform at the BRIT Awards Feb. 20.
Maybe Tay can write a song about the hardships of being in the public eye?
