Last night, Taylor Swift attended the CMAs solo - no Jake Gyllenhaal. Also notable, Swifty didn’t sweep the awards! Maybe Nashville is finally tiring of Swifty? They did let her perform though, and it was just as girly and snowflaky as you could imagine (the photos of her performance dress are below). Her red carpet look was oddly good - a sleek red column with a sexy slit up one leg. It’s too mature for Swifty, but the color looks great on her, and she’s got the figure (just not the attitude) to pull it off.
Anyway, I noticed this interesting little story in the print edition of Us Weekly this week - apparently, Jake was the one to pursue Swifty, and she made him chase her:
It’s weird, but it’s working! Unlikely couple Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift continue to get cozy from coast to coast. During Halloween weekend, Jake and Taylor enjoyed a stay at Big Sur’s Post Ranch Inn in California.
“At breakfast, Taylor was snuggling with Jake,” says a fellow guest. “When she got up to wait for an omelet, she was smiling at him.”
By November 6, they had returned to NYC, although they kept separate as Jake went on his Love & Other Drugs promotional tour, and Swift spent time with friends. A few days later, she flew to Nashville while Jake stayed in NYC.
Will Jake rush to reunite with Swift - whom he met after asking his team for an introduction - for a fourth weekend? Perhaps. After all, says an insider, “from the start, Jake was the one pursuing her.”

I’m not going to blame Swifty for this - it’s Jake who has the problem. Why is he chasing John Mayer’s seconds? Ugh. Jake… get a grip.
Also - there’s a rumor that Reese Witherspoon was the matchmaker for this little union too - but I don’t see it. I doubt Reese gives a sh-t about Jake’s life at this point, and I buy that Jake asked his people to set him up with Swifty.
