Taylor Swift is all about making love connections — even when they’re not for her! As revealed in the new issue of Us Weekly, the “I Knew You Were Trouble” songstress, 24, opened her little black book for Selena Gomez and plucked out a very well-known name: Austin Mahone.
After setting her BFF up with Ed Sheeran last summer, Swift played matchmaker for the “Come and Get It” singer, 21, and the “Say Something” sensation, 17, who opened for her on tour. “They’re seeing each other,” a source tells Us of the Texas-born star and Gomez.
For now, though, they’re keeping the romance relatively quiet. Leaving the Beats Music concert on Jan. 24, they “sneaked out separately,” a second source shares, “then got in the same car!”
Gomez — whose most high-profile relationship to date was with fellow pop superstar Justin Bieber — recently spoke with Seventeen magazine about what she’s looking for in a boyfriend. Having gone through what she called a “really bad breakup” with Bieber, she needed time to figure out what she wants. But now she knows she’s ready.
“I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls,” she said. “I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It’s hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, ‘I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?’ But I only know how to be me.”
Can you imagine if this is in fact true? What is Bieber going to do that she has moved on to the next biggest thing? Do I think that Austin Mahone will ever hit Bieber status? Honestly, no I don’t but maybe that will give him longevity rather than a short fame lifespan like it did to Bieber who is currently famous for all the wrong reasons.
So there are a couple things I don’t believe about this whole new alleged couple and number one, the source is US Weekly, let’s be honest they are not exactly the most reputable magazine in the world. The second thing is that Selena has already dipped into the kiddie pool for dating once and it didn’t exactly end well. In fact it ended with her laughing about making Bieber cry, to getting back with him, to breaking up, then so on and so forth. Does she really want to go through that again?
Selena Gomez is 21 years old, she shouldn’t date someone who is only 17 years old. No matter how “mature” he is, it is fucking weird. Gomez you have no reason to date someone that much younger than you even if they are a better looking version of your ex-boyfriend!
Also fucking Taylor Swift right? You know that she wants to date Mahone but knows how frowned upon it would be to do so, so instead she puts her best friend with him. If this is true you know she is asking Selena what Mahone is like in bed and everything. Living vicariously through Selena Gomez will be Taylor’s new pass time.
