How Kanye Helped Hook Up Taylor With Jake

I’m starting to get why Kanye West continues to bash Taylor Swift on a regular basis—he wants a thank you for making her life so fabulous in 2010!

Taylor is enjoying the sweet life of a twenty-year-old popstar whose boyfriend of the moment is Jake Gyllenhaal. And I can’t help but think that if it weren’t for the whole VMA thing, Taytay would still be dating guys like Taylor Lautner—not Jake G.

Think about it--Jake Gyllenhaal’s last major relationship was with Reese Witherspoon, a massive A-lister. Not too often do stars date down after going A-list. The fact that he's seeing Taylor means she's pretty major right now on the celebrity scale. Which brings me to my point.

Taylor Swift has gone from country star to international star in one year. She’s not only crossed over to pop, but is also dabbling in acting—and she was darling in Valentines Day! It's only fitting that she's now dating on the A-list!

Sure, John Mayer wasn't the wisest of choices, but at least she's in the company of Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, who have also made a mistake by dating the singer.

Mark my words…Swift will be doing big time films in no time, and it wouldn’t surprise me if she was approached to tackle a role that involved singing and acting—similar to Jennifer Hudson’s breakout role in Dreamgirls, which, I might add, got her an Oscar nod.

Casually dating Jake fits right into her mold right now, and it'll help both of their careers. But she definitely owes Kanye a little thank-you note for making this all possible.
