Taylor Swift turns 23 with Globes nod ... and Harry Styles?

With a Golden Globes nomination in the best original song category for "Safe & Sound," Taylor Swift has twice the reason to celebrate Thursday, which is also her 23rd birthday.

"Best birthday surprise EVER-just found out that Safe&Sound is nominated for a GOLDEN GLOBE!!" Swift tweeted the morning of December 13.

But according to People magazine, the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer may have started the festivities earlier in the week with her rumored new beau, One Direction's Harry Styles.

A fan shared a photo of the two on a jaunt through northern England on Wednesday, and People magazine has overheard that the pop star pair were dining out at a pub about 170 miles north of London on Tuesday night.

But while it's been widely speculated Stateside that Swift moved on from her summer romance with Conor Kennedy to Brit boy bander Styles, onlookers in England thought they looked more like friends.

"[Swift] was polite and pleasant – fantastic," said Sarah Walker, the manager of the pub where Swift and Styles were seen with friends on Tuesday. "She is just having a nice tour of England. They were like any typical group of people having dinner. Everyone thinks they are a couple, but to be honest, we had no sense of that at all."

Boyfriend or just a friend, we're sure Harry'll help Swift turn 23 with Style.

    I can't be the only one that's sick of this chick, am I? I don't care how popular she is or even if she has talent, we don't need to read 10 stories a day about her. Although, come to think of it, it could be about the Kartrashians.

    There is something seriously wrong with this girl. She is 23 and most guys she dates are 18...............Patrick Schwartznegger, The other Kennedy Kid and now Styles! What is her problem?????????????She has serious image issues, as if she has no self esteem. And believe me 18 yr olds are not what she needs! She must feel most colsely related to 18 than 23. She makes me sick!

    She cannot sing. I have not figured out what all the fuss is about. I can't sing and I know it so I sing at home and in the car, etc.

    25 or 26 is "way older than 23"??? Have you had your eyes checked lately??? She's a very pretty young lady, and if you don't like her, then don't read articles about her. You're just a regular Mensa member, aren't you?

    She looks way older than 23. Easily looks 25 or 26 if a day. Hard living and liquor 'll do that to a gal, I guess.
