Joe Jonas &Taylor Swift: Break Up

Teen idol breaks relationship via phone call

Us Magazine reports that teen idol Joe Jonas and country sensation Taylor Swift have officially broken up.  The report went on to further report that Jonas broke the five month relationship off via phone, with an inside source stating, “He broke her heart.”  Although the two never confirmed their relationship, Taylor went on record early last month at the MTV VMAs as saying, “He's an amazing guy, and anyone would be lucky to be dating him."

Let me just ask: what is this trend of dudes breaking up with Hollywood starlets via phone?  First it was Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford and country superstar Carrie Underwood breaking up via text message, now this?  I understand they’re busy and traveling quite a bit but if someone invests time in a relationship with you, severing ties over the phone or via a text message is akin to getting dumped via a Post-It Note, a la Sex and the City.  Bottom line: anyone who would dump you on the phone or via text message wasn’t man enough to be with you anyway. Move on.
