Taylor Swift was pretty quiet this year, and she seems to be exiting the year in relative silence too. I still don’t know how I feel about this whole “Taylor will no longer speak on behalf of Taylor” thing. With Beyonce, it works, because Beyonce has mastered the art of communicating through the visual, whereas Taylor has… not mastered that yet. Taylor NEEDS to explain. She needs to talk and communicate verbally. I hope this whole thing was just a phase and for her next album or Tay-incarnation, she goes back to giving interviews and actually interacting with people openly. Anyway, she posted these cute photos with one of her kitties for Christmas. Her PR is also still hyping The Privacy of JoeTay.
Taylor Swift is the happiest she’s ever been with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “They’re very low-key and normal. They work out, watch movies together and have friends over,” the source explains.
While Swift, 29, and Alwyn, 27, who were first publicly linked in May 2017, are definitely homebodies, the source says that when the pair spend time in London, they love to check out the the local pubs. “She’s much happier without her personal life out in the open,” the source adds. “She credits Joe for that and realizes how much better off she is.”
I’m stuck between two thoughts. Thought #1: See, giant celebrities CAN be private and low-key if they really want to be, versus Thought #2: I honestly don’t believe that Taylor is slipping down to Joe’s local pub in London all the time and NO ONE has ever noticed or seen her or taken a photo. I’m not saying that Taylor hasn’t spent some quiet time with Joe in London. I’m absolutely positive that she has. I just think that whenever she’s in London, she’s probably just hanging out at his place and not going out, or when she does go out, it involves several discreet security guys, multiple wigs and and several costume changes in case anyone sees her.
Also: I don’t know about London, but JoeTay were pap’d all over New York this weekend! Much privacy.
