Let the devastation over Hiddlesplit continue! James Corden and Stephen Colbert joined the mourning over Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s breakup, tearing up and singing the blues. Watch their video tributes to Hiddleswift’s breakup right here!
James kicked off his Sept. 7 show with the bummer breakup news, acting like he was totally torn up over the fact that Taylor and Tom‘s three-month relationship had ended. “It’s tough when you’ve gotta hear this kind of stuff, but it’s my job,” the 38-year-old host told his audience getting choked up. “I’m going to give everyone a moment.”
But the sadness quickly transitioned to total mockery of Hiddlesplit, with James joking about Taylor’s inevitable post-breakup songwriting (“As soon as Taylor’s band heard about the breakup they were like ‘Yeah, yeah, we know, we’re headed to the studio right now,'” he quipped). He even poked fun at the “I Heart T.S.” shirt Tom wore on the Fourth of July, showing a hilarious picture of Tom in a “T.S. is B.S.” shirt instead. We have to admit, even those who are actually upset over Taylor and Tom’s split have to find that funny!
Going along with the joke that Taylor will be writing new songs after her latest breakup, Stephen, 52, actually wrote a song to mourn the end of Hiddleswift. “I’m especially sad about this news because their love was in the press so much I thought I was part of it,” he said before breaking into his tune, which he cleverly made into an ode to his “relationship” with Tom and Taylor.
“Taylor, Tom and me we were a happy couple of three but now they said goodbye and I just want to cry. How could you do this to me? Think of all our memories,” Stephen sang, showing pictures from their first kissing pic in Rhode Island to their whirlwind getaways (and Photoshopping himself in).
Stephen continued with more hilarity, but closed with a reference to another Hollywood couple that is still going strong. “My heart is on the floor/I’ve got ‘Bad Blood’ with amor/So goodbye Tom and goodbye Tay Tay/Don’t worry about me I’ll be OK-K/Because I’ve found a brand new love that will never go kaboom/Goodbye, Colbiddleswift. Hello, ColKatlando Ploom.”
Looks like Stephen has Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom‘s love to follow now huh? Judging by the devastated reaction over Hiddleswift’s split, we can only imagine what might happen if Katlando Ploom ever breaks up!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of James and Stephen’s reactions to Hiddlesplit? Are you upset that Tom and Taylor broke up?
