Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince: Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn Split
By Zsófia Benyi
Miss Americana, the master behind the ten iconic eras earning her 12 Grammys and superstar status, might soon sing her recent split into sweet melodies. As sung in the titillating Dress song from the Reputation Album: “Flashback, when you met me Your buzzcut and my hair bleached”, Joe Alwyn, blonde British actor and pop-star Taylor Swift, may have had a moment at the 2016 Met Gala. Since the couple has become one of the most famous yet, secretive favorites: most Swifties were ready for a fairytale-like happy ever after for the two lovers. Still, while Taylor Swift is filling mega stadiums, pulling off over ten outfit changes on her Eras Tour, the couple might be distancing not only km-vice. Source broke the tea to People magazine, claiming that the couple, though planned for marriage, went their separate ways due to two differences in personalities and Taylor Swift’s massive fame. “Joe has struggled with Taylor’s level of fame and the attention from the public,” the source said. “The differences in their personalities have also become harder to ignore after years together. They’ve grown apart.”
Six sweet secret years together: Taylor calmed her waters from her crazy year in 2016 at 27 and swiftly entered her 30s with her stable prince-partner. After whirlwind romances from the time she exploded onto the pop scenes as a country sweetheart, giving plenty of inspiration for all of our favorite love songs, she seemed happy and centered, creating and rerecording six albums in six years. Still, Taylor does not seem to be skipping a beat, and since it’s Easter, she is leaving plenty of Easter Eggs for us to follow. Does Cornelia Street from the Lovers Album ring a bell? Well, the song was supposedly about their relationship in 2016 when she lived in a Cornelia Street apartment for a while. Making her first appearance post-breakup four minutes from Cornelia Street to grab a New York dinner with friends rocking red lips, bejeweled jeans, and a top referencing Lady Diana’s Revenge Dress is hence, classic Swift.
