Jared Leto & Taylor Swift Dating Rumors Have to Be a Publicity Stunt, Right?

Sources are claiming that the next Hollywood couple might be Sweto. Tared? Basically, it's possible that Taylor Swift is dating Jared Leto. The two were seen canoodling at the InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes after-party whispering to each other and admiring Leto's golden statuette, which he won for Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club. Leto even posted a picture of the two to his Instagram account, captioning it with "Me. Taylor Swift. Golden Globes. Xo." 

While the caption is cryptic, we assume that it was meant to be provocative. In other words, we think that Leto is playing us like a finely tuned electric guitar. This whole Leto-Swift romance is totally bogus, right? For one, what if they just met on Sunday? That would make this relationship a whopping two days old. I've heard of love at first sight, but this seems a little too much.

Secondly, while Swift has dated older men (I'm looking at you John Mayer, and yes you too, Jake Gyllenhaal), Leto is even significantly older than those two men and is nearly double Swift's age. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, he's wearing a bun. A bun. 

And finally, the blatant reason behind all of this, Leto has been out of the limelight for a few years now. What better way to make headlines than to date an infamous Hollywood serial dater?! Leto, you sly fox, you. We wish you all the best this awards season, but sometimes it's better to let your work speak for itself.
