I Can't Wait For This Song


If tabloid reports can be believed, the total Jake Gyllenhaal spent on his brief relationship with Taylor Swift is about $200K. That includes flights and gifts and about $100K worth of coffee. What did he get for his trouble? A bunch of publicity and a song written for him on Taylor's next album. Hmm, wonder what those lyrics will have to say. It seemed like the relationship was doing great. I wonder if Jake moved to fast for Taylor. Spending the holidays with the family after only dating a month might have been too much, especially if they really did break up a month ago. That would put their breakup at about the week after Thanksgiving.

You mean a 21 year old and a 30 year old don't have a lot in common?! WEIRD!

MommaSaid said...

@Sue Ellen-EXACTLY!!!!
This whole relationship thing was weird from the get go.

Lindsey said...

I just couldn't with these two. Jake..too mature, Taylor..rainbows and sunshine and..bleh.

shopgirl said...

I thought it was common gossip knowledge that Jake is "toothy tile" and that he and his people get him into these showmances to keep the paps off his back. I thought he and Taylor made the perfect fake couple.

Cheryl said...

Can you say rebound? Hope Jake got it out of his system but poor Taylor. She doesn't seem to make the best choices when it comes to men...

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Please. This "relationship" was started and ended by publicists and managers. Jake needed a new beard, Taylor needed to wipe the stink of John Mayer off her. Mission accomplished. The end.

TinselSass said...

I say Jake's people will rue the day they planned this showmance. Hell hath no fury like a scorned songwriting starlet.

kathrynnova said...

fake romances and fake gossip surrounding them: this is why i love celeb gossip. definitely more interesting than the kardashian klan and lohan.

Lindsey said...

I agree with Miss Little Smoke... so true.

HannahPalindrome said...

Sue Ellen FTW

RocketQueen said...

Since this was obviously an "arranged" romance, I'd be surprised if Jake's people didn't include something in the contract about her not writing a song about him ;)
Other than that...what LMSaM said.
I can't even believe this was considered a relationship. A few coffee dates and photos and we're discussing it??

Selock said...

Enty, you're not implying legitimacy in this relationship, are you? Really?

jess said...

Yeah...sure "relationship" - really lame!

my best friend was dating a guy about the same amount of time as them & after thanksgiving she dumped him. He seemed to close to her family after first meeting them and it annoyed her/freaked her out. She made him sleep in another room she couldn't stand him. This was after they arrived at her family's house and they were there for 10 minutes when she texted me and said "i don't like him".

Tenley said...

Just this weekend the gossip in Nashville was that Maggie had been in town -- the assumption was it had to do with Jake-Taylor. But maybe it's always been Maggie-Taylor instead?

In any case, it would serve Ms. Swift right if some magazine interview with one of her exes were headlined: "Tay's A Bad Lay." It'd be a good song title, too. Might stop that nasty habit of hers of kisssing and singing real fast.

looserdude said...

Heehee @ what LittleSmoke said but getting the stink off from John Mayer would probably take a whole bottle of Clorox first.

timebob said...

poor Tay Tay she is such a hopeless romantic and gets so hung up on these guys that use her.

she needs to lay off chasing after famous men and just date a normal guy with a normal job.

Moosefan said...

"We picked apples in the fall and your blue eyes met mine. We bought coffee and we walked hand and hand and it was fine. Now its after Christmas and you are in your closet sitting on the floor, I say baby please come out being in the closet is such a bore!" There, lyrics to her post Jakey I helped him come out song. I will take my residuals in Godivia chocolates please.

Missy said...

Arranged relationship, nothing new here.

sunnyside1213 said...

LOL @ Moosefan. Perfect.

timebob said...

LOL @Moose!!

eyeonu2 said...

Ditto Selock & Little Ms. Smoke. Didn't last long enough to detract from that Mayer taint- ewwwk!

MCH said...

LOL @ Moosefan - Spot on! :)

A Gawker commenter suggested she's already written lyrics for their relationship:
"So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive & crazy. That's fine, I'll tell mine you're gay"

canadachick said...

And cue Blake Lively's publicist on the line to Jake's publicist....

Jamie's Girl said...

Taylor's image was tarnashed by Poopy Boy John Mayer. It was a successful mating between Taylor and Toothy Tile!

Merlin D. Bear said...

Both had projects needing publicity, a movie for him and an album for her.
So how do you generate talk? You "hook up" Taylor Swift with Jake Gyllenhaal.
Both benefit, he gets het cred, she gets another song for her next album, and they both go their separate ways.
And I'm halfway wondering if he wasn't her merkin while she was his beard.

cincinnatikate said...

I think Taylor is being bamboozled by the industry. I dont think for a second she knows how not straight Jakey is. I am guessing after she fell more in love at Thxgiving, someone wisperd "google toothy tile"...in her ear and she found out and said I am not playing this game anymore. She looks easily manipulated into love in my opinion..

Selock said...

With all due respect to the people who buy into Taylor's wide-eyed innocence and humility, I don't think she is remotely the victim she is portrayed to be. It was a smart idea to pair her with Jake after the John Mayer mistake. I don't think she has any qualms about being involved in showmances. I mean...Taylor Lautner?

The Taylor+Joe Jonas thing still confuses me, though...he is my favorite and I could be convinced to buy that that was a setup, or even a bearding, except that it was kept so hush hush when it was on, and he didn't gain a thing after she smeared him in the press for 18 months+ whilst she gained...well, a massive chunk of his band's girl-angered fanbase and the rest of the world's attention from there on in...

Yes, I'm still bitter and I can't stand her nonsense!

P.S. Enty, since I am bringing up Joe and we're speaking of bearding, share this one with your mom - Joe being asked point blank by paps a couple days ago if he is gay and when his "bearding contract with Ashley is up"...he handles it so well! Just thought your mom might be interested in what NICE PERSON he is... ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqyl6SbZywg

BigMama said...

ok, first of all, my daughter swears! that Taylor lies about her age and is supposedly more around 25. Secondly, I don't think for a minute that relationship was real. He is a good actor but not that good, he looked on the verge of annoyance in almost every picture. Thirdly - isn't she believed to be the blind about the chicky who was a beard but was doing the body guard?

cincinnatikate said...

I have combed through recent pics of Tay Swift. Her body guards are in their mid to late 30's and none of the ones was I able to squint and say "yeah Maaaaybe, its him"..there also seems to be different ones, quite often. Next thing you know someone is going to say she is secretly a call girl to the bodyguards of Hollywood and is bearding as a singer.

Selock said...

@cincinnatikate I think you're on to something!!!

Just kidding...I don't like her but I am sure she isn't evil...but business is business! (and she and her people are really good at this business.)

illumicmatt said...

If Taylor does end up looking for a normal guy, i can be contacted on.... ;)

Char said...

I wouldn't be surprised if the bearding contract included that she MUST write a song about him. But it has to be positive. Anyone heard the song supposedly about Taylor Lautner? It paints him in a very good light, very sweet song. Certainly nothing about a fake relationship in there. I like Taylor Swift but I'm not naive enough to believe her songs tell the REAL story of the relationships.

There will be a song about Jakey but I doubt it will be anything like the one about John Mayer. John should have made her sign a contract instead of just hooking up with her for real!
