As you've probably heard by now, Taylor Swift is dating Tom Hiddleston.
The news that Swiddleston is officially a thing came as a shock to many, as the couple went public just days after Taylor broke up with Calvin Harris.
The Internet being the Internet, much slut-shaming ensued, as many fans and haters believed that Taylor had moved on too quickly from her relationship with Harris.
Now, Taylor is getting some emotional support from an unexpected source.
Amber Rose has been through some high-profile breakups of her own, and in a recent interview, she came to Taylor's defense.
Decrying the double standard regarding the way famous men and famous women are treated by the press after a breakup:
“I love Taylor, for sure. Absolutely."
"And I feel like guys do that all the time - they break up and the next day they’re with another girl and nobody really says anything."
"But with Taylor it’s, you know what, I’m done with Calvin [Harris] and it didn’t work out, so on to the next."
"It is because it’s unheard of, and she’s acting very ‘slutty’ and for some reason needs time to ‘let her pussy rest.’"
“That’s how people look at it, and it’s just like, hell no! If I’m done, why do I have to sit in the house and be lonely?”
A solid point from a woman who's been treated unfairly by the press on countless occasions.
Taylor has complained in the past about the level of press attention that's paid to her love life, but to be fair, she's kind of a ringmaster in the media circus that is her life.
To only date famous people, pen chart-topping hits about your breakups, and then expect the media to look away is to dramatically misunderstand the way the American media functions.
That said, it must suck to have your personal life picked apart like this, so the least we can do is treat Ms. Swift fairly and not cast any harsh judgments.
What she chooses to do with her love life is her business, after all.
How's this for a deal, then:
Taylor is free to date whomever she wants, and we're free to obsess over her relationships like she and boyfriends are characters on our favorite soap opera.
