After watching Taylor`s evermore lead single “willow” video many speculated that she is secretly married or engaged to her boyfriend, Joe.
In the video, the 30-year-old entertainer who rarely shares about her relationship featured in a white bridal-like dress which fans speculated as an announcement of her engagement to the British actor. In November, Taylor Swift revealed Joe Alwyn was a “secret” collaborator on her album folklore.
However, a song she wrote with Alwyn “champagne problems” completely shuts the speculations about her engagement down at first glance with its lyrics: “I never was ready so I watch you go/Sometimes you just don’t know the answer/’Til someone’s on their knees and asks you/’She would’ve made such a lovely bride/What a shame she’s fucked in the head,’ they said,” and “Your mom’s ring in your pocket/My picture in your wallet/Your heart was glass, I dropped it/Champagne problems.”
Although the 29-year-old actor helped Taylor on the songs “Exile” and “Betty” on her last studio album, he wasn`t credited under his real name but as “William Bowery”.
“So, William Bowery is Joe, as we know. And Joe plays piano beautifully, and he’s just always playing and making things up and kind of creating things,” Taylor said in her Disney+ Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions special.
The entertainer went on to share with fans the creative process and what inspired her to write her songs.
I have no idea what will come next. I have no idea about a lot of things these days and so I’ve clung to the one thing that keeps me connected to you all. That thing always has and always will be music. And may it continue, evermore. evermore is out now: https://t.co/QYMUTL0IAj pic.twitter.com/tlSmahDkBi

“I’ve never done this before. In the past I’ve always treated albums as one-off eras and moved onto planning the next one after an album was released,” the singer said on social media.
“There was something different with Folklore. In making it, I felt less like I was departing and more like I was returning. I loved the escapism I found in these imaginary/not imaginary tales. I loved the ways you welcomed the dreamscapes and tragedies and epic tales of love lost and found into your lives. So I just kept writing them.”
