Taylor Swift dishes on Joe Jonas for breakup by phone

Tayloronellen300 Taylor Swift spent a good chunk of time earlier this year insisting that she and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers were just good friends, despite her popping in as a musical guest during some of their concerts.

Turns out there was more to it, but it didn’t wind up with a fairytale ending like the one in her recent “Love Story” single and video.

The 18-year-old singing and songwriting phenom is being feted Tuesday, the release date for her second album, “Fearless,” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” In the course of her discussion with host Ellen DeGeneres, she talks about her recent breakup with Jonas, which she said took place over the phone.

“It’s all right, I’m cool,” Swift says, sounding as though she's shedding few teardrops on her guitar over this one. “You know what? It’s like, when I find that person that is right for me, he’ll be wonderful, and when I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18… It was like a record, I think. For how quick. I looked at the call log, it was like 27 seconds… That’s an ouch.”

DeGeneres takes a bit of the sting away during the show, treating Swift to a surprise appearance by Justin Timberlake.

Meanwhile, Swift has had to combat a false report making its way across the Internet that she's pregnant.

It’s "impossible, and....impossible," she has told Access Hollywood. "It's so crazy when you spend your entire life and all of your energy trying to be a good person and trying to be a good role model and trying to make the right decision and you make the right decisions and you make the right choices and people make things up about you. It’s a little offensive, actually.”

I reaaaaaallly want to hear joe jonas' side of the story, its so fun when you see celebs acting their age (moody adolescent behaviour) and not the pretty perfect boy image they try to sell to you.

Taylor SHOULD be mad...I mean, I love Joe and everything, but even if he's BUSY he still could have talked to her and told her why for a LOT MORE than 27 seconds...she's right: it is a low blow. No one can really be sure why he broke up with her (maybe his parents?) but I think that he feels equally bad about it as she does..I mean, if you've seen pictures of him lately, he looks like his spark is gone. I wish that they can someday get over it (unlikely, I know, but still) and that God continues to bless them!

I think that Taylor and joe were cute together...but it was harsh that he broke up with her over the phone. He doesn't seem like the type of person that would do that. He seems very grounded. That is what I love about not only him but kevin and nick as well. Well..he probably was in another country or on tour so he had no other choice but to call her.. But couldn't he have waited until he got back and break up with her in person?I mean, he isn't gonna be on tour or where ever he was forever.I personally think he shouldve waited.. But I still love him and I love the jonas brothers and Taylor seems really nice and I love her music too!

They are both extremely busy and Joe was taping a tv show, promoting theyre record in Europe, so he called her cause he didn't know when they would get together. And just maybe the phone call was only 25 seconds cause she hung up on him. Sure she's heart broken, she still cared for him but for ever reason it wasnt working out for him. But she knew it was coming she said that the song "Forever and Always" was written about him and she wrote that prior to Sep29th. I'm tired of all her heartbreak songs, theres got to be a reason guys keep leaving her, oh thats right if that didn't happen she wouldn't have any material or shes psycho. At least now we know why Joe broke up with her shes SPOILED, MEAN and NASTY.

and why do you care?

i like u both but i think tayler is overacting a bit. i luv joe and i dont think he`d do sumthin like that if he didnt think it was the rite thing to do. u both shud move on.

Wow this just shows how lame the jonas brothers are. Me being a musician and a studio engineer I have never understood the big deal about them and never will. They're just another fake cookie cutter pop band that literally came OUT OF NOWHERE. A fine lady like taylor swift shouldve seen through right through this but thats beside the point. Taylor Swift will amount to far more then the Jonas brothers can ever hope to and if you disagree with me you need to get your head checked.

Sounds more like she keeps talking for the extra PR it brings her. She wasn't saying anything a month ago when it happened. But now that the new records coming out she keeps bringing it up. There are two sides to every story and two people involved in the beginning and end of every relationship. I admire Joe for staying with her so long and for keeping his mouth closed about a personal relationship. Wish Taylor could keep it in perspectives. They are just teenagers.

OMG I HATE TAYLER CUZ SHE WAS GOING OUT WITH MY FUTRE BF
IM NOT GONNA SAY AWW POOR TAYLER CUZ SHE IS EVIL
JOE JONAS IS THE MOST HOTTEST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE AND HE IS SOOOO SWEET
LOV YA JOE JONAS SOOO MUCHH NEVA WILL STOP

Taylor Swift is a very talented young lady who will still be around when in a few years people will be asking where are the Jonas brothers now? Miss Taylor has been nominated for Female Country Vocalist and the Jonas Bros. were nominated for what? Nothing! They have no talent whatsoever. Taylor can do so much better than Joe. I LOVE that she let the world know what a jerk he is!

Taylor swift cannot sing. She sucked so bad on ellen. she has no talent and should not be a singer. The jonas brothers can actually sing and are WAY better than taylor swift!

yhnk god,,im sure joe can gt a btr gf netim.........

I have so much respect for The Jonas brothers as well as Taylor Swift. And you don't have to know the jonas brothers personally to know that their great guys! I am a TRUE FAN and am not gonna get mad at Joe for something so juvenile.If he and Taylor weren't meant to be than so be it. Taylor seems like an amazing person. But she could have acted more like a lady she didn't have to record a song about him like that. Joe is too much of a gentleman to do anything like that. His parents have a huge impact on his life and they wouldn't allow it. He is a Christian boy and tries hard to do what is right. It is something that is in the past and it should stay there.We should do our part by just dropping it its not even our business. Myself included.

He was in Europe come on He's not gona fly all the way back just 2 break up with her and if u read wat she said on her myspace page you'd break up with her to! That song Forever and Always oooo gets on my last nerve

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! happy he brock up with her she is such a little jerck she cant just go on her myspace and talk bad about him becouse he duped the little winer I hater her SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE Joe Jonas and HATE talor swift no afence to any one how licks that jerk.

I feel really bad for taylor =[
I mean...I love joe but that was low!
but hey, stuff happens. i still love joee =]
...and taylor =]

taylor is a brat she talks bad about joe jonas very badly all the time and its not right and she says that she is "over him" but that is SOOOOO not true she even made her own youtube movie about it(she is such a dork for doing that?!?:?!!) i hope that she falls off a cliff or she moves all the way to like antarctica.

JaDe

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I AM NOT ON EIGHTHER SIDE BUT I FEEL SORRY FOR TAYLOR ABOUT THE BREAK UPWITH JOE=[ THAT DOESN'T MEAN I HATE JOE OR TAYLOR.I HOPE U GUYS AREN'T AGAINST EACH OTHER=] PEACE!!!!

I FEEL SORRY FOR TAYLOR BECUASE OF THE BRAKE UP=[ BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN I HATE JOE, IT IS JUST THAT HOW HE BROKE UP WITH HER WAS A LITTLE HARSH. BUT IF HE WOULD GO OVER TO TAYLOR'S HOUSE IT WOULD BE LESS HARSH=]

ME AND MY 2 COUSINS HOPE U 2 WON'T HATE EACH OTHER 4 THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. IF THERE IS GOING TO BE ROMORS ABOUT U GUYS THAN JUST DON'T LISTEN, LIVE YOUR LIFE THE WAY YOU WANT 2 LIVE .

P.S U BOTH ROCK!!!!!!!! NO MATTER WHAT!

i think that joe should be left alone about this subject. seriously things like this happen all the time in our every days lives so why does it make a diffrence that joe did it?!?! i mean i was rude but he might have a good reason for it. she should be spreading things around about him saying that he is the worst and he hates her and that he is a rude guy. i mean we all make mistakes and this happened to be a mistakes joe made and she took it very hard and made the choice to spread it around that he hurt her very badly and now it is making him look like the bad guy! i think that it is better than cheating on her.

hola

u know what, i think that whatever happened happened and noone should choose a person
how can u say that joe isnt that type of person and he must of had a good reason?
do u know him?
i didnt think so
how can u say that taylor is acting like a spoiled child?(ladyleigh)
havent u ever been the least bit upset that a guy broke up with u?
unless u married the first guy u ever dated then shut up
i think that everyone needs to get out of their business even though i know that that will NEVER happen.
all of u who r saying "sorry taylor but i looooveee joe" stop!!!!!!
dont u think shes feeling bad enough and then u go and rub it in her face
all of u who r saying "sorry taylor" how can u possibly mean it
u feel absolutly no sorriness for her u cant u dont know her like that
u just think that joe is a bad person becuz u didnt see this one coming
so what if joe broke up her
would this be such a big deal if ure neighbor joe broke up with that girl, noone really knows from school, taylor
no u only think u feel this way because theyre famous
gey over urselves and get over them
u cant change it but u can move on and that is what any normal human being with a conscience would do

i think people should stop being so damn insensitive. I like joe and all, but it doesn't change the fact that you shouldn't break up with ANYBODY over the phone. and stop calling taylor immature, she's only human, she acted really cool about it, i've known people who's done so much worst. leave both of them alone, geez. crazy joe fans should just get over it, no matter how you look at it, he's still in the wrong. Ask any girl, YOU DO NOT BREAK UP WITH ANYBODY OVER THE PHONE. that just shows spinelessness .

I'm still a big fan of joe and taylor though

I don't think it could be any better. like he could come back to the US from Europe just to break up with her. It wouldve been a lot worse by E-Mail TAYLOR SWIFT so CRY ME A RIVER BUILD ME A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
