Taylor Swift has been having fun in London, England shooting her new video for her latest single “Ready for It,” which is said to be an ode to her current boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
The video was shot in all the places British-born Joe loves in north London, as well as places he visited with the 27-year-old singer when they kept their relationship under the radar over the summer.
So, there’s a namecheck for the local pub, and even the kebab shop they popped into for a late-night snack has been featured. But, will the 26-year-old be making an appearance in the pop promo too?
Well, we’ve learned that Taylor did initially toy with the idea, and wanted to feature the British actor in a sly cameo, teasing a fleeting glimpse of her new man or even letting him appear as a shadow.
Joe, who is flattered to have a song written about their love thought it was a great idea because he still wants their romance to be private.
“Taylor has had so much fun on her London video shoot for “Ready for It” and it’s been a hoot revisiting all the places her and Joe visited together,” a source explains. “That’s why she thought it would be a brilliant idea to include Joe in the video with her, considering the song is about her new-found love with him. Since her high-profile splits from Tom Hiddleston and before him, Calvin Harris, Taylor has enjoyed keeping her relationship with Joe under wraps. Obviously wary of flaunting him, like she flaunted Tom, Taylor felt it would be a good idea to perhaps tease Joe in the video, showing off his shadow or giving him a disguised cameo. She was adamant that she didn’t want to do anything cheesy by putting Joe front and center and feels that would’ve been the way to go forward. Happy-go-lucky Joe, who is smitten with Taylor, feels relaxed and flattered that she has dedicated a song to how they found love together. He agreed that if he appeared as a shadow, or eagle-eyed fans were treated to a fleeting glimpse of him in the video, that would work hilariously with the mystique around their relationship.”
The 10-time Grammy Award winner’s new album, Reputation is set to be released on November 10.
Another song on the album, “Gorgeous,” is also reportedly about her new man.
As for her current love life, Taylor and Joe were believed to have started dating all the way back in April.
They’ve had to squeeze in as much time as they could together, with Joe busy filming three major movies at the moment.
He’s starring opposite Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scotts is also shooting Operation Finale with Oscar Isaac and Nick Kroll and is gearing up to star opposite Emma Stone in The Favourite.
