Taylor Swift Rep Says Singer Is Not Dating Zach Braff

By ABC News Radio

CMATaylor Swift and Zach Braff apparently are not a couple, despite a rumor to the contrary.

Taylor’s rep tells Us Weekly the singer “has never been on a date with Mr. Braff” and the former Scrubs star “has never even set foot” in Taylor’s home.

The gossip website Sugarscape reported Tuesday that the pair was spotted hanging out together in New York, where Braff is starring in the Broadway show Bullets Over Broadway.

The website also claimed Braff had visited Swift’s NYC apartment and the two had even gone to a Manhattan farmers’ market together.

Taylor’s rep insists neither is true, telling Us, “Despite the rumors, Taylor has never been on a date with Mr. Braff, and he has never been to her home.”

The rep then added, “Like, never. Ever.” The teasing remark was apparently a nod to Swift’s 2012 hit, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

Swift, 24, has been previously linked to actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner, The Jonas BrothersJoe Jonas, and One Direction‘s Harry Styles.

Braff, 39, split up with his girlfriend, model Taylor Bagley, last March after a five-year relationship.

Taylor Swift Wishes "Magical" Friend Lena Dunham a Happy Birthday

By Andrea Dresdale

Image Courtesy Taylor Swift via TwitterTaylor Swift is Lena Dunham‘s biggest fan. The singer took to Twitter on Tuesday to wish the Girls creator a happy 28th birthday, writing,Happy Birthday to my favorite person to have picnics with.. the magical, kind-hearted, wondrous @lenadunham.”

She illustrated her post with a photo of Lena, and a photo of herself, presumably taken at the same time. The photos appear to be taken on the rooftop deck of a building — Lena is lying on a quilt with some pillows around her, and Taylor is wrapped up in a quilt, with some pillows near her as well.

Lena and Taylor first connected with one another on Twitter, but they’ve since become fast friends. Taylor recently told E! News that Lena is her fashion inspiration, because she always tips her off to the hottest blogs and the coolest stores. Taylor’s friendship with Lena even extends to her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff of fun.: the two wrote the Golden Globe-nominated song “Sweeter than Fiction” together.

Taylor Swift's Piano Playing Skills Landed Her Role in "The Giver"

By Andrea Dresdale

Cliff Lipson/CBS Taylor Swift appears in the upcoming movie The Giver opposite such big names as Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and Katie Holmes. But it turns out that one of the reasons she got the role isn’t her acting skills, but her musical skills — specifically, her ability to play the piano.

According to The Washington Post, the producer of The Giver, Nikki Silver, appeared at an event at the Library of Congress to promote the film, along with Lois Lowry, who wrote the book on which the film is based. Silver explained that the character Taylor plays, Rosemary, was originally written as someone who played the piano. They auditioned several other actresses for the part, Silver said, but when the producers attended one of Taylor’s concerts last year, they saw her playing the piano and realized that she might fit the bill.

“She’s a very soulful, interesting young woman and we had this very out-of-the box idea that maybe it would make sense that she could be our Rosemary,” Silver said, according to the Post. “And she’s fantastic. I’ve spent a lot of time with her, …read more

Taylor accented the gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Christian Louboutin shoes and an Edie Parker clutch.
