Is Taylor Swift's New Single Off 'Reputation' About Harry Styles?

"But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom." OMG!

Just when we all thought we had to wait till November 10 to hear the rest of Reputation, Taylor Swift does us a solid and drops her second single "...Ready For It?" For those hoping for a sweet love song, you'll have to wait for the rest of the record because this love song isn't your usual Tay-Tay. With a heavy bass and spoken lyrics almost like T-Swizzle rapping, this track is still in the same vein as "Look What You Made Me Do." (via seventeen.com

The obvious inspiration for a love song would be her current rumored beau Joe Alwyn, but fans are convinced that this new track is actually about Harry Styles.

What do you think? Who is it about? And more importantly, why is November 10 still so far away???

You were probably super kilig when James Reid and Nadine Lustre would share kisses onscreen as a love team on their shows and in their movies. Are you wondering why they're not as affectionate in public now that they're actually a couple? James shuts down speculations that he has been cheating on Naddie because of the lack of PDA between them. He replied to a certain @worldisnotbalance on Instagram, "don't get mad if nadine and I aren't PDA you obviously don't know that nadine hates that. We like to keep those moments to ourselves because for so many years we've kissed and hugged for everyone to see on tv and movies. Is privacy too much to ask for?" That should clear things up, right, JaDines? Give these two a break! (via pep.ph)

Are Chloe Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham back together? After they ended their year-long romance, shippers were heartbroken. But it seems like the rumors about these two getting back together might be true! Brooklyn has been busy settling down and starting college but in a recent post on Instagram, fans went crazy after spotting a comment from his ex-bae. It's a simple emoji ♥ but we think it's a sign that they just *might* be rekindling their romance. Hee hee! (via seventeen.com)

Did Zayn shave off all his hair? Or is it for the music video for his new music, which he just teased? TBH, it wouldn't be the first time he's done something drastic to his hair so we wouldn't be surprised. But after giving a sneak peek at his new video for "Dusk Til Dawn," we think he might be faking it. Either way, with a face like that, Z can pretty much do anything with his locks.

If you know me, and know me well, I am not the biggest fan of idyllic lifestyles. With a Type A personality, I act immediately upon whatever challenge that needs to be addressed. I actually enjoy keeping my mind preoccupied: doing university work in my favourite cafe then running errands around town, grocery shopping here, updating my accounts there, photocopying documents on the way down the street - all just in time before having a glass of champagne at the bar with my friends come evening.

And so, you could imagine my bewilderment when the next challenge to be faced was an extensive self-quarantine protocol. I didn’t know what to do when my greatest responsibility in this situation was to do nothing at all. My first few attempts to combat my consternation were very much rooted in distraction and imagination. My distractions involved conducting research, writing songs, calling family and friends, filming videos, and eating chocolate! My imaginations and fantasies were centred on travelling, shopping, even clubbing (which I rarely do) for when they find a cure to COVID-19. I did anything and everything that could be considered constructive in order to pass the time, mainly hoping I could just undertake the basic human necessities to survive - that is, eat and sleep the day through - until the next day comes, until the world is closer to becoming a better place, until quarantine ends, until my flight follows through, until I see my family and friends again.

Days in self-isolation and suspended flights turned to weeks and turned to months. By the third extension here in Spain where I study Fashion Business, I had to tell myself this shall be my new normal now, that I was blessed to be healthy, that I was tired of merely existing and missed what it was like to actually live - even if just within four walls. Little by little, I began to find significance in the simple occurrences of the day: the soft glare of the rising sun beaming golden streaks through my bedroom window upon waking up, the fragrance of freshly washed bed sheets that I had painstakingly hung to fit a relatively small clothes rack without crumpling them, the crunch and tanginess of warm toasted bread topped with raspberry marmalade, the buzzing sound of a phone call from home just waiting to be answered, to the caress of a fuzzy sweater to keep warm at night. I realised, “What pleasures to be enjoyed in the pause of slow living!” Through this continued pause, which I loathed at first, I began to appreciate each moment of the day rather than wish it would pass more swiftly, moments I had overlooked so often before the lockdown. I started to find that the challenge of self-isolation was never to pause both the regular routines of life as well as the positive emotions that came with these - as initially, I thought it meant to pause all happiness, so as to withstand a time of endurance in hopes for a better tomorrow, much like a form of delaying gratification. Life is just too fragile these days to delay gratification any further.

Life has paused, but it has not stopped. Believe that like any punctuation mark in a sentence, the pause will provide the right timing of things to take place. Till then, let us not waste our time waiting. Instead, we could be in the moment, seek substance in simplicity (that is, in what we already have), And enjoy the pleasure in pause. “Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.”

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
