It only took a matter of days before Taylor Swift found herself having to explain to the world, via Ellen Degeneres, her relationship with hottie Jake Gyllenhaal.
Since The Dame broke the story, and then went on a bender, Swift and Jakey have kept a low-profile regarding a possible relationship after the two were spotted getting cozy backstage at Saturday Night Live and in and around NYC in the days that follow.
To me, this relationship comes as no surprise as Swift has a new album, ‘Speak Now,’ to promote while Gyllenhaal is about to start a press tour for his new film, ‘Love and Other Drugs.’ Free PR never hurt anyone, right?
While promoting the album on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Taylor tried her best, but was unable to deny rumors of a possible relationship with the ‘Prince of Persia’ star.
Via US Weekly:
“I’m always optimistic about love…always, sometimes.”
“But right now you are [optimistic]?” DeGeneres asked.
“Well, why wouldn’t anyone be?” Swift answered.
“Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome,” DeGeneres teased. “Y’all are just hanging out though right?”
“You have a picture of us on the screen, don’t you?” Swift retorted.
And the denial didn’t stop there. Ellen went on to ask Swift if her song, ‘Dear John,’ was indeed about her rumored relationship with the much older, John Mayer.
Swift told DeGeneres the track “could be” a “Dear John” about Mayer. “That song kind of is what it is,” she quipped.
“OK, great,” DeGeneres chirped. “We know the answer now. It’s about him [John Mayer]. You didn’t dispute it so obviously…”
Swift’s new album is currently available in stores while Gyllenhaal’s movie, ‘Love and Other Drugs’ opens November 24.
