Taylor Swift and Harry Styles Hold Hands After Awkward Kennedy Event

Awkward alert: Taylor Swift was honored last night for her humanitarian work by her ex’s family.

Taylor was given the RFK Center’s Ripple of Hope Award, which honors “leaders of the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change.”

The pop singer was dating Conor Kennedy earlier this year. Things fizzled out for the two, but Taylor is still tight with the Kennedy clan.

Fortunately for her, Conor was nowhere to be found at the ceremony — nonetheless, it’s got to be awkward to be surrounded by generations and generations of your ex’s family.

After the event, Taylor met up with her new beau, One Direction’s Harry Styles. The two were spotted holding hands, which was a cute change from their more reserved Central Park outing.

The two lovebirds then headed to a karaoke bar and partied with other members of 1D: Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.

Sorry, Harry fans. It looks like Taylor has a firm grasp on this 1D cutie.
