Of course, by that title I clearly mean her latest boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Though Taylor and Joe have been reportedly dating for months, Taylor Swift decided to do something very UN-Taylor Swift and keep their relationship on the down low…until now.
Taylor recently performed at Capital FM’s annual Jingle Ball and shockingly boyfriend Joe Alwyn stepped out to support her AND they were actually photographed holding hands. In the world of celebrity blogging (and my Swift obsessed friend, Lori), this is v v legitimate news.
After a highly publicized (and criticized) whirlwind romance with Tom Hiddleston aka Loki from Thor (and Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Connor Kennedy, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhal, etc), it makes real sense that T. Swizzle would want to keep her private life private for a bit. I mean, 2016 and into-2017 was a VERY anti-Taylor Swift time in the media. Especially here on this site, but tbh it’s probably been an anti-Taylor Swift year here since 2013 when I started writing lol.
After going into seclusion for like a year and traveling in suitcases and maybe getting her boobs and butt enhanced, Taylor has super re-emerged this year with her shitty new music which people still seem to like, and her super cute new boyfriend, which people seem ok with.
I don’t know shit about Joe Alwyn, so I’m fairly indifferent to the whole thing. I mean, he looks like the exact kind of guy Taylor Swift would want to date, so good for her, I guess?
Either way, we now have a picture of them holding hands, which I guess confirms Us Weekly’s story from a few months ago that they’re sooooooo in love. I mean, he’s not wearing an I Heart TS tank top while swimming at the beach with her friends a la Tom Hiddleston, but the hand thing is a start.
