We all know Swift moved on quickly and started dating Tom Hiddleston (the pair also made no attempt to hide their affections for each other) but Harris dealt with his breakup in a very different way, and although he has been rumored to be hooking up with a bevvy of beauties (including Tinashe and Nicole Scherzinger), it turns out he’s not all that interested in dating. At least, that’s what John Newman says.
Speaking during an interview with The Sun newspaper, Newman revealed that “he doesn’t need anybody” to comfort him, and he’s doing well post-Taylor.
“His emotions are so strong, he’s so strong-minded,” Newman continued, adding, “He’s a one-man train who is never going to stop. The limits are literally endless for him.”
Harris and Newman are good friends, who most recently collaborated on a new track, “Olé,” which many believed to subtly throw shade at Swift and Hiddleston’s romance — Newman sings the lyrics, “Low key you won’t tell none of your friends about me,” which many believe to be a reference to Hiddleston’s character Loki. Although Newman was quick to reveal that he had no comment on their relationship, previously telling Evening Standard that Harris wrote the song.
“He told me how to sing it. It’s a weird one because I’ve got no comment on the thing [Swift and Hiddleston’s relationship],” he told the publication. “I honestly can’t — it wouldn’t be fair. I’ve just related to the tune in my own way.”
We had no doubt that Harris was doing well post-split, but it’s great to know that he’s so focused on his music and has been taking some time for himself after things went south with Swift.
