For this edition of “The X Factor” UK notes, we are focusing almost entirely on the world of One Direction, whether it be their newest music video, or the rumor that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles may have ended up calling it quits.
Let’s start by talking about the music video, mostly because this is a far more pleasant thing to talk about than the rumors of a couple breaking up (even though this may be rather predictable at this point considering the parties involved). The song here is called “Kiss You,” and it seems to be a perfect tribute to Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock.” We actually rather love the fact that this is far different than any of the group’s other videos: it’s stylish, funny, and it shows the boys goofing around rather than really making an aggressive push towards any women in particular. (Not every video needs love interests!)
As for the breakup rumors, it is a report from Life & Style that says that the two’s schedules had a great deal to do with it. A “source” also says that it may be Harry that is the more broken up about it (though Taylor could have a song about him on her next album):
“They are both really busy and never in one place for long. Harry’s really upset about the split and is really sensitive about it … Loads of his friends told him to be careful and that it was never going to last, and he feels a little foolish now that it’s fallen apart so quickly.”
Ultimately, we do think that Taylor and Harry were just not the best match: they are both international touring stars, and we never really thought they had much in common beyond music. (We still don’t know why she never got with Adam Young, otherwise known as Owl City, after he re-made “Enchanted” and put it online on Valentine’s Day.)
