泰勒·斯威夫特情史大揭秘

We are never, ever, ever getting back together: Taylor Swift and her former boyfriends

So Taylor Swift has been seen with a new man: British actor Tom Hiddleston. The thinking woman's Daniel Craig put on a show of manly pizzazz at the Met Ball in May, when he and Swift embarked upon an impromptu performance of what The Telegraph's dance critic called "possibly the extraordinary dance I've every seen".

泰勒·斯威夫特又在和新男友约会了:英国演员汤姆·希德勒斯顿(“抖森”)。今年五月,在大都会艺术博物馆慈善舞会上,汤姆·希德勒斯顿就展现了他的男性魅力,那时他和斯威夫特做了场即兴表演,《每日电讯报》的舞蹈评论者说这“可能是我见过的最精彩的舞蹈”。

It was said to have sparked the break-up between her and Scottish DJ Adam "Calvin Harris" Wiles some weeks later, and now the pair have been pictured canoodling on the coast.

据说,此次舞会是她和苏格兰流行音乐节目主持人加尔文·哈里斯在几个星期后分手的导火索,现在这对情侣被拍到在海滩拥抱亲吻。

The world, of course, is surprised: there is a 10-year age-gap. Swift is a New York-dwelling superstar taking a hiatus from a global tour and a record-breaking album. Hiddleston is the UK's favourite contender to play the new James Bond, a man who made headlines when his naked bottom appeared on BBC One. How could these two, of all people, be photographed kissing on a rock?

当然,世界都惊呆了:他们的年龄相差10岁。斯威夫特是住在纽约的大明星,刚刚结束世界巡回演唱会,其专辑破了纪录。而希德勒斯顿是英国人,是扮演新版詹姆斯·邦德最受欢迎的人选,他裸露的下半身出现在英国广播公司一台的时候,他登上了各大媒体的头条。世界上这么多人,怎么偏偏是这两个人被拍到在岩石上热吻呢?

But Swift's fans are more likely experiencing a sense of de-ja vu. Here is a woman whose starry love-life is so well documented that she wrote a song about the media's reaction to it. If you're not aware of her trail of exes so far, here's a swift (sorry) recap:

但是斯威夫特的粉丝们更有可能体会到一种似曾相识的感觉。这个女人惹人注目的爱情生活被详细地记录在案,她甚至写了首歌来描述媒体对她恋情的反应。如果你目前对她一连串的前任还不太了解,这里就简要梳理下斯威夫特的情史:

Swift met Kennedy after befriending his grandmother Ethel and spent time at the Kennedy family home in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. The pair split at the end of summer, when Kennedy had to return to his studies and Swift had an album to finish. Some said that the distance and commitments were to blame, while other reports claimed Swift was "obsessed" with Conor's famous family and "came on too strong".

斯威夫特结交了肯尼迪的祖母埃塞尔之后见到了肯尼迪,然后他们俩在肯尼迪家族位于马萨诸塞州海恩尼斯港的家中度过一段时光。两人在夏季结束时分手,那时肯尼迪不得不回校学习,而斯威夫特需要完成一张专辑。有人说,距离和承诺是罪魁祸首,而其他报道称斯威夫特“痴迷”的是康纳尔的著名家庭,而且她“太强势了”。

The pop world near-exploded when Swift, then at the peak of her Red-era fame, and Styles – at the summit of his One Direction acclaim – were photographed together in New York. Swift even visited Styles' northern hometown to celebrate her birthday with his family. But it all fell apart by the new year, apparently after a significant row.

那时斯威夫特因专辑《红》红极一时,而斯泰尔斯也因单向乐队受到赞誉而处于巅峰,当他们两人被拍到一起在纽约,整个流行音乐界几乎要爆炸了。斯威夫特甚至去了斯泰尔斯位于英国北部的家乡,与他的家人一起庆祝她的生日。但是这一切在新的一年都土崩瓦解了,显然他们有过一次严重的争吵。

Did he inspire any songs?

他是否成为斯威夫特某一首歌的灵感?

Some would say the entirety of her 2014 album, 1989, was inspired by Styles. The smoking gun appears to be a paper aeroplane pendant necklace belonging to Styles, that Swift was pictured wearing during their relationship and features in lyrics to songs including Out of the Woodsand Style.

有人会说她2014年的专辑《1989》的灵感全部来自斯泰尔斯。确凿的证据似乎是斯泰尔斯的纸飞机吊坠项链,他们交往期间斯威夫特被拍到戴着它,并且在《脱离困境》和《Style》这两首歌的歌词中都出现过。

Unlike Swift's earlier relationships, pop's ephemeral golden couple were defined, documented and, finally, ended through social media. Together, Harris and Swift supported and boosted each-other's careers, but their relationship was lived out in rose-tinted Instagram snaps rather than red carpet appearances.

与斯威夫特以前的关系不同,流行音乐界这对关系短暂的金童玉女从确定关系、记录恋情发展再到最后结束,都是通过社交媒体。总之,哈里斯和斯威夫特支持和推动了对方的事业,但他们的关系只活在玫瑰色的社交媒体照片里,而没有红地毯合体亮相。
