"I did play matchmaker, that's true," she said. "Calvin is a really great mate and he's so fantastic, and Taylor is such a cool person who I love. I thought, ‘They're both really awesome and both really tall, they'll be brilliant together.'"

Swift, 25, and Harris, 31, fueled romance rumors in March when the "Style" singer was spotted sitting in the DJ's booth while he performed in Las Vegas. Ellie was along for the trip too, which makes sense given her statements above.

This isn't the first time Taylor has let a famous friend play matchmaker. Apparently, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin set the superstar up with Jake Gyllenhaal years ago. We all know how that ended… lets hope this relationship lasts a little longer. If not, we can definitely bank on Swift releasing a killer album all about it.
