Post-Split Must-Have: The Taylor Swift Prayer Candle
9:30 am, January 25th | by Laura Donovan
Break-ups are rough, even when they don’t happen to us. Songbird Taylor Swift, whose many relationship misadventures have reportedly made her feel like the laughingstock of the country, takes romantic splits especially hard, and that’s why someone created this amazing prayer candle featuring the faces of her former flames above the words, “You were the best thing that’s ever been mine,” the lyrics to her sweet, non-vengeful tune, “Mine.”
The Etsy item, which has snapshots of One Direction pop prince Harry Styles, “Jarhead” actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and “Glee” cast member Cory Monteith among others, includes an amusing description that reads as such:
Taylor Swift has dated all of the world’s pretend boyfriends and now it’s time for her to watch those relationships burn.
This glass-encased pillar candle shows off all the faces of Taylor’s latest loves, from the handsome to the similarly named to the Kennedy, atop the quote, “You are the best thing that’s ever been mine,” from one of those songs she wrote about some 14-year-old she got frozen yogurt with one time in Cape Cod.
The 23-year-old, who was allegedly shot down by “Silver Linings Playbook” star Bradley Cooper, is currently single and was kindly advised at the Golden Globes ceremony to have some “me” time. Chances are, she won’t listen and we can expect to slap another pretty boy’s smile onto this candle in a couple of weeks. Sigh.
