The internet is buzzing with the latest celebrity split news: Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have called it quits after six years of dating. The pop star and the actor reportedly ended their relationship a few weeks ago and remain on good terms. However, some fans have a different theory about what caused the breakup: the BLACKPINK Rosé Curse.
What is the Rosé Curse, you may ask? Well, it’s an inside joke among BLINKs (BLACKPINK fans) that anyone who takes a picture with Rosé, the main vocalist and lead dancer of the K-pop girl group, will soon break up with their partner. The joke started when supermodel Gigi Hadid posted a photo with Rosé at the Met Gala in September 2021, and then announced her split from singer Zayn Malik a few weeks later.
The joke continued when actress Florence Pugh posed for a picture with Rosé at an event, and then the news of her breakup with actor Zach Braff surfaced a few days after that. Then, TikTok star Bella Poarch divorced her husband after getting spotted with Rosé. And then, model Kendall Jenner broke up with basketball player Devin Booker after she posed for a picture with Rosé.
Taylor Swift was the latest victim of the Rosé Curse, according to some fans. The singer-songwriter also posed for a picture with Rosé at the VMAs after-party in 2022, and now months after that picture, she has broken up with her long-term boyfriend. After the breakup news surfaced online, fans started to make jokes and memes about the Rosé Curse, and several of these tweets have gone viral, attracting thousands of likes.
Of course, these jokes are all in good fun and not meant to be taken seriously. Fans love and support both Taylor Swift and Rosé, and wish them all the best in their careers and personal lives. The Rosé Curse is just a way for fans to cope with the shocking news of their favorite celebrities breaking up, and to have some laughs along the way.
