Is Taylor Swift’s New Song About Her Boyfriend?
Are you ready for this theory?
According to some eagle-eyed fans, Taylor Swift's new song, "...Ready For It?," may be about her rumored current boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, who the pop star has quietly been dating since May.
As Elle broke down, the song lyrics seem to reference Alwyn at many points, including the time Swift attended a screening of his film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, in which he plays a literal killer:
"Knew he was a killer / First time that I saw him..."
Later, the pop star seems to allude to Alwyn's age, when she sings, "Some boys are tryin' too hard / He don't try at all though / Younger than my exes but he act like such a man so."
Alwyn, who is 26 years old, is quite younger than Swift's previous boyfriends, producer Calvin Harris, 33, and British actor Tom Hiddleston, 36.
So, what do you think, Swifties? Is Taylor talking about her new beau? Or is she just waxing poetic about boys in general? Sound off in the comments!
"...Ready For It?" was written by Swift, Ali Payami, Shellback and Max Martin.
