The Taylor Swift and Harry Styles relationship was likely a publicity stunt. The Stir reported the not so shocking news on Feb. 25. A new report came out that Taylor and Harry got together to gain recognition in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
HollywoodLife.com reported that One Direction went to great lengths to date Taylor. It was Harry that got the opportunity to date her for three short months. They boy band that the publicity would make them huge in the United States.
A new biography about 1D's Styles also touches upon the fact that the relationship was fake. Louisa Jepson, author of the biography, says that every time Swift dates or breaks up with a guy, it gets a ton of media attention. It only made sense for Swift and Styles to fake their very public relationship and breakup.
If the Taylor Swift and Harry Styles relationship is a publicity stunt, the stars did a good job at fooling fans. The singer has also blasted her ex-boyfriend on stage at the 2013 Grammys and Brit Awards. It also gave some fame and recognition in the U.K. If the country singer is not careful, all of this good publicity will end up being bad publicity in the end.
