Taylor Swift Gets Death Threats From One Direction Fans

Apparently if Taylor Swift dies any time soon, it will be the fault of Mario Lopez. He said that he saw Taylor Swift and Harry Styles from One Direction holding hands backstage at X Factor. Who knows if it is true or not, but what is true is that since that point, Taylor has received countless death threats from fans of Harry who want to be with him themselves and don't want him to have anything to do with Taylor Swift. Generally the death threats are written in twitter-ese or text speak, but they all say some version of I kill you if you date my Harry. Of course in a few years none of these teens will probably admit to even liking One Direction and will have moved on to things less embarrassing. Do they really think Harry is going to go out with them?

I think Luke Perry fudged it up when he married the fan who sent him her panties. Not that these girls know who he is....maybe it's a family story handed down by their mothers. "You too can have a chance, honey!"

yawnathon said...

Oops. Maybe it was a bra. Either way ;)

Wow, it's the Lesbeaver all over again! Has this kids balls even dropped?

Every teen girl fantasizes about meeting a celebrity and than getting asked out or having the celeb give them their number. Teens have a lot of time and emotions on their hands. Celebs are a great outlet....with that being said shouldn't taylor be on an undateable blacklist...hmmm I wonder if she dates men but prefers women. This would explain a lot.

Taylor, slow down....it's okay to not have a boyfriend every minute!

Sylvester Stallone met Brigitte Neilson after she sent him dirty pictures.....

LottaColada said...

Well the same thing happened to Selena Gomez when she was first seen with the beaver.

Hold the phone.... Luke Perry married a fan?

Katie Holmes' teenage crush was Tom Cruise. She did marry him, and look how well that turned out.

Cathy said...

I would much rather Selena starting this guy. It would be the perfect F U to Bieber.

Cathy said...

*dating, not starting.

JoElla said...

And folks, this is why the tweeners do not need Iphones!

LottaColada said...

Some of the other guys have GFs, do they get death threats too? Or is Harry the most popular of the group?

Alma said...

I love luke perry after seeing him in Oz. Did not know he married a fan. Teenagers, uy nothing is reasonable. Everything is urgent and dramatic. Let's blame the hormones.

strawberrygirl said...

There's nothing scarier than a pissed off teen girl.

Kim's World said...

Yawn it was a bra and all I kept thinking was I could have did the same thing and I would be Mrs. Luke Perry.

Tracy Polan got all kinds of death threats when she started dating Michael J Fox. I would imagine death threats from a 13 year old girl are the least threatening threats imaginable.

Sarah said...

I never went this far but I still dislike Karen Wheeler, based on a magazine interview where she revealed she'd danced to Wiggle It with MY Jordan Knight

Death threats from a 13yo girl was an episode on Snapped just last night!

Heidi said...

I thought Harry only had eyes for Louis. Is that the whole Larry thing? I guess Taylor is in beard mode yet again.

timebob said...

this is how young girls prepare themselves for adult relationships they latch on to non-threatening sweet faced boys like a Harry or a Zac Efron type. But with the social media now, they can vent their frustrations to anyone that gets near their fantasy boyfriends.

Which is why we will never ever not have some variations of boy bands, they serve a purpose psychologically to young girls and in return are are huge money makers for record companies.

All about Eve said...

I think we have all disliked a celebrity for dating our special celebrity but death threats? Really? Where does it end? We may laugh about it but in the back of my head I can't help but feel disturbed.

timebob said...

I always imagine the FBI showing up at some tweens doorstep and her having to explain to her parents why she wanted to decapitate Taylor Swift over stealing her boyfriend Harry.

@Mari
Your comment is too funny not to be in the right thread! :) :) :)

I was a failure as a tween fan. I should have sat amongst my posters cutting letters out of magazines (to be fair this was a while ago) and pasting them to notepads,
"You are such a mean slut! How dare you go out with John Taylor! He is going to marry me! I know he is! He looked right at the section of Maple Leaf Gardens where I was sitting! You totally see it in The Reflex video! Get lost!"

My (gorgeous) friend and I met new kids on the block when we were freshman in high school. We went to a concert, and someone brought us back to meet the guys after. Donnie gave her his phone number. We were soooo excited, and she called a couple of weeks later (that is how long it took to get her courage up). He was polite to her on the phone, but it was clear that he had no idea who she was. They never spoke again.

dragon said...

The Larry shipping is just stupid.

Henriette said...

I went to school with a girl who went out with Danny from New Kids On the Block. He was pretty boring.

Lori said...

meh. They'll break up before the weekend anyway...

Jennifer said...

Just have to say that "Harry Styles" is a horrible name. Whenever I hear it, I think it's a joke name. Sounds like a good joke hairdresser name. At least his name isn't Harry Balzac.

rll said...

Damn, McKay, not cool. Why are teenagers so unstable these days? I remember I cried when Legolas Bloom started schtupping Bosworth, (lame-o) but I didn't threaten to kill her. Dem kids gone cray cray

Sugar said...

Do you think Taylor is jealous of all the attention Selena got for dating that lesbian toddler beaver? Now she gets to be the one getting death threats for "dating" Harry! Its her turn now, shove over Selena!!

JoElla said...

"lesbian toddler beaver"

BWHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
*gasps for air*
BWHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Kathleen said...

I'm much more embarrassed for the thirty-something-year-old women who have had sex with this silly-looking, effeminate kid. At least the tween girls have an excuse.

supapimp said...

Corey feldman married a fan too.

Mari said...

Thank you Sunny!

timebob said...

And as soon as Luke Perry lost his fame his wife took off, never marry a fan they are so fickle.

123xyz said...

Rick Springfield married a fan too

SecondCityKid said...

Maybe Mario said that to cover up the fact it was HE who was holding the hand of Harry Styles backstage. & I hope it was his hand.

Chismosa Street said...

Why is it always the girls that goes berserk and send threats of physical harm on any girl who they think 'stole' their idol's heart? We seldom hear news of jealous male fans sending death threats to the bf of a female celeb they are lusting over.

poovey-tunt said...

I would guess that it's because fandom consists of way more females than males, and they work themselves up into a frenzy together. There's peer pressure - girls want to top each other as the most devoted fan of all - and mob mentality and all that fun stuff, often at ages where girls are least likely to think twice before they type.

That said, the vast majority of fans, female or male, are perfectly sane and if they're talking about how some celebrity is their boyfriend or girlfriend, it's said with their tongue firmly in cheek. Everything under the sun will have a few people who take it too seriously. Because this involves a celebrity, we're just more likely to hear about it.

Krissie said...

I think a lot of teenage females get hysterical about their idols having girlfriends because the female fans want the whole package-a fairytale romance, a wedding, babies, etc. They can't have that if their idol has a girlfriend. Meanwhile teenage males mostly like female celebs because they are fantasizing about sleeping with them. You can still sleep with someone in a relationship (it's not nice obviously, but you can do it). That's the difference IMO.

I've never understood why girls get themselves in a tizzy over boybands. Even when I was little I thought boybands were fake and silly. All this fighting and squealing and crying has always been a mystery to me.

PS @ Jennifer- I know! "Harry Styles" is such a dumb name and it sounds like somebody's 75-year-old neighbor who yells "Get off my lawn!" I think it's funny that someone's who considered so crazily sexy has such an old man name.

Sarah said...

@tish hey, does she still have the number?

applejaxy said...

@jennifer - since my daughter does a lot of fangirling (she's 10) for this group i had to look them up. apparently it's better than having him take up his mom's maiden name (since his parents divorced). his mom's maiden name is Cox. just put the two together...you'll see why "harry styles" isn't so bad.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Part of the reason may be the teen magazines. They concoct stories that feed into the belief that Teen Idol A wants nothing more than someone just like you.

(I was/am a hardcore Duran Duran fan, but those magazines annoyed me, even back then.)

Silly Girl said...

Lots of musicians/actors marry their fans. All the way back to.....

Gabby said...

I am sick to death of these tweens/teens making death threats to celebrities! If I ever caught my daughter doing something like this, I would have a looooonnnggg talk with her. Do these girls think they'd ever have a chance with these ultra-famous boys? And they obviously don't realize how ridiculous and against-the-law it is to threaten anyone's life. People think just because they say it online they can get away with it! The entitlement is atrocious.
