Taylor Swift Sways to Ex-Boyfriend Harry Styles’s Performance at the 2023 Grammy Awards
Harry Styles took home the biggest award of the night, and his ex Taylor Swift was nothing but smiles.
Taylor Swift definitely has a “type” when it comes to dating, and that type is so similar to herself — musicians with major star power, like Harry Styles — it was only a matter of time before she was bound to run into some of them. The only thing more awkward? Competing against them for Grammy awards.
However, it seems that time has healed any wounds the two may have felt since their breakup back in 2013, so in terms of “Bad Blood,” Swift and Styles are in the clear.
The two were caught on camera exhibiting extremely positive and supportive behavior toward each other during the 2023 Grammy awards, which was sweet to see.
Swift took home the award for Best Music Video, “All Too Well: The Short Film,” which was self-directed. Styles was up for the same category for his mega-hit “As It Was,” but the loss was small compared to the bigger wins the former One Direction singer wrangled: Best Pop Vocal Album, which he snagged along with Swift as a nominee, and the creme de la creme Album of the Year for Harry’s House.
Swift has 12 Grammy wins herself, including three Album of the Year wins for Fearless (2010), 1989 (2018), and Folklore (2021), which earned her bragging rights as the first woman to win album of the year three times.
Back then it was Styles congratulating his ex for the big win. This year, Swift was proud to do the same when the “As It Was” singer won his own.
The country singer-turned-pop artist was also captured on video dancing during Styles’ Grammy performance, singing along and swaying to the song while Styles dazzled audiences in a silver tinsel ensemble.
After the show, the singers chatted and seemed supportive of each other.
Swift released her latest album, Midnights, in the fall of 2022. The songs are inspired by her ultra-private relationship with longtime beau Joe Alwyn, her struggles with fame, fighting with her insecurities, and even dealing with revenge.
Her upcoming Eras tour caused major controversy after Ticketmaster’s technology seemingly couldn’t keep up with consumer demand, leaving fans sitting online or on the phone for hours only to have glitches in the system and no tickets at the end of it all.
Romantically, Styles dated actress and director Olivia Wilde last year. The two met while working on Wilde’s film, Don’t Worry Darling, but it was reported in November 2022 that the pair were taking a bit of a break, eventually leading to a full-on breakup.
Since then, Styles has allegedly been in touch with another ex, Kendall Jenner (as reported by The Sun), while Wilde is still processing the breakup. She has been “leaning on friends” according to US Weekly while struggling to balance co-parenting with ex-fiance, Jason Sudeikis.
