Taylor Swift, in all her singing, dancing and social media glory, is enveloped by chaos.
Her fans want a piece of her, the media want to know everything about her, and her friends? Well her friends, too, are some of the most famous faces in the world. Their clique – or ‘squad’ as they are more formally known – also leaving a trail of chaos in their wake.
But what’s most interesting in the way Swift’s private life plays out publicly is the way she doesn’t often fight it and sometimes invites it. Her relationships often make their way into the public eye before she’s likely formed her own opinion on the likelihood of that romance lasting.
When Swift and Harry Styles went on their first date together in 2013, the paps were ready, their eagle-eyed, magnified lenses ready to snap.
When Swift and Calvin Harris in embarked on their own year long relationship in 2015, we knew about it within a week or two of happening.
And when Swift and Tom Hiddleston started dating in 2016? Well, surely it wasn’t long enough ago for any of us to forget. Beach? Rocks? Kissing?
If you’ve eyed celebrity news sites in the last week or two, you’d have seen entertainment journalists all but falling over themselves reporting the fact that Swift has a new boyfriend.
