Taylor Swift‘s new relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston has proved more divisive than any of her previous. With some calling it a ‘showmance’ on account of Taylor and Tom’s OTT lovey-dovey displays so early on (who can forget Tom’s ‘I Love T.S’ t-shirt? And lets not forget they only went public in mid June), others are certain the romance is real and the pair are just head over heels in love. (We prefer this version). Either way, I think we can all agree it’s a bit random, right?!
‘Conspiracy theories’ about the pair have been swirling the net since Taylor and Tom first got together, and have been building momentum each time Twitter catches wind of a new Rome pic (it was their first holiday together), meet the parents pic (Tay Tay met Tom’s mum just a few weeks ago) or frolicking in the sea pic (it’s how they celebrated the Fourth of July)… You get the idea.
For the most part, they’re totally implausible and laughable, even. I mean, we’d be highly surprised if Hiddleswift were just a government coverup created to take the heat off Brexit. But the latest theory (that seems to be dominating the web) seriously has us sold.
Are Taylor and Tom literally trolling us all? Let’s look at the facts.
In short: you know how Beyonce’s Lemonade album is an epic 1.5-hour visual masterpiece? Well, many believe that Taylor’s just in the process of doing somehting similar. Think of it like an ultra-high budget video for her next Blank Space equivalent, in which The Night Manager actor Tom Hiddleston plays Taylor’s lead love interest.
You with us?
First, there’s the fact that every photo of the pair together has come from the same photo agency. Suspicious considering it’s usually quite an even ball game. Could one agency really bethat lucky? Some have even reported seeing the SAME photographer snapping away everywhere the couple have been.
Next, it’s been noted by keen-eyed Internet users that the security guards they’ve been travelling with have been carrying stacks of passports. For crew members, perhaps? It’s plausible.
Supporting the theory is the fact that Taylor’s been dropping albums every two years, meaning we’re due one imminently. Yep, it’s been nearly two years since 1989 was released.
Are you convinced yet? If this all *is* for a new album, we, for one, can’t wait to hear it.
