Ne-Yo thinks some good can come of her recent split.

Taylor Swift is now a single woman. This news came as a shock to many, as there were rumors swirling about a potential engagement or marriage to then-boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Sadly, the two could not make it work. Now, fellow celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to shoot their shots and give advice. The latest to do so is R&B singer Ne-Yo. TMZ caught up with the artist in LAX and spoke to him about the recent news of Taylor's split.

In the video posted on TMZ's website, the gossip blog's reporter walked alongside Ne-Yo in the airport. "Is there a silver lining to that sort of stuff?" he asked. "It can be good for songwriting, you know what I mean?" Ne-Yo listened intently and offered his thoughts on the matter. "Oh, yeah, absolutely. Some of my best songs are about heartache and breakups and stuff like that." The reporter continued, asking if the R&B singer thought Taylor could make use of this. Ne-Yo responded with positivity, looking at the bright side of the situation. "That's the beauty of being a songwriter," he explained. "You don't have to suffer through it as much because you can take that energy and turn it into something positive."

Taylor's Sudden Split

The reason for Taylor Swift's sudden split with Jow Alwyn is still not clear. As always, Taylor has remained tight-lipped about the subject. She has never been one to speak about her relationships much in public. She prefers to save it for her music. However, a source did give Entertainment Tonight a little bit of insight into the situation. They clarified that the breakup was not dramatic. Instead, the two simply decided it was time to end things. "The relationship had just run its course," the source said. "It’s why [Alwyn] hasn’t been spotted at any shows.”

Taylor Swift generally doesn't speak much about her relationships until after they are over. However, she and Alwyn were together for six years. So, in an uncharacteristic move, she spoke openly about how he had inspired her song "Lavender Haze." About the track, Taylor said: "I happened on the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men, and I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool, and it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the ’50s where they would just describe being in love."
