Taylor Swift Is Not Dating Hozier, Just Flirty Friends

Still single — and certainly in Style! Despite rumblings at the 2015 Grammys that Taylor Swift had found a potential new love interest in Andrew Hozier, a source says in the new issue of Us Weekly that the two are just friends.

"It's not romantic," the Swift pal tells Us of her relationship with the "Take Me to Church" rocker, 24. "She's just a huge fan!"

Rumors intensified after Swift, 25, stayed close to Hozier at Sam Smith's Grammys afterparty, which was also attended by nemesis Katy Perry. (While Grammy organizers attempted to make sure Swift did not cross paths with Perry, the two ended up dangerously close to one another inside the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 8.)

Insiders tell Us Swift intently ignored her rival at Smith's bash, while Perry, the inspiration behind "Bad Blood," rocked out on the dance floor. Instead, Swift whispered with Hozier, but the same source insists that the two are just flirty pals.

"They've been friends at least six or seven months," the insider tells Us. "They will always be only friends."

On Friday, Feb. 13, Swift released the music video for "Style," the fourth single off her smash album 1989. In it, the songstress alludes to her past with Harry Styles, one of her many famous ex-boyfriends. These days, though, Swift is "very much happily single," the sources says.
