You’ll never find another like … Taylor Swift! The award-winning singer-songwriter dropped the music video for her new single, “Me!,” at midnight on Friday, April 26, and many fans are already speculating that she hid a tribute to her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, in the colorful mini-movie.
As Swift, 29, and Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie, who is featured, sing the bridge in the middle of the track, they bust out into a marching band-inspired dance routine. While their moves are the main focus as they croon, “Girl, there ain’t no I in ‘team’ / But you know there is a ‘me,’” it is what happens in the background that got Swifties talking.
The camera pans up and focuses on a massive building that is covered by rainbows. If you look slightly to the left, however, there appears to be three of London’s most iconic structures: Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Alwyn, 28, was born in North London and the couple spend a lot of their time in the city, so some fans believe this was Swift’s way of honoring her beau in a subtle way.
“When you put Westminster and Big Ben in Paris because you are Taylor A for Awesome Swift,” one fan tweeted. “@taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #MEOutNow (Joe reference).”
A second fan added, “Anyone else noticed the skyline is London? With Big Ben and Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Dedication to Joe or did you buy a house?? What is going onnnnnnn #MEOutNow @taylornation13 @taylorswift13.”
Another called out the pink “Lover” sign that was also featured in the video and noted, “BUT when I paused it at this shot you can see the Big Ben, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral, which is in Londen [sic]? You can also see a neon sign that says Lover. Could this be a reference to her ‘in reallife’ lover??? @taylorswift13 @taylornation13.”
The “Blank Space” songstress and the Favourite actor were first linked in 2017 and have kept their relationship extremely private ever since. A source told Us Weekly in December 2018: “They’re very low-key and normal. They work out, watch movies together and have friends over. She’s much happier without her personal life out in the open.”
A second insider explained the month prior that the pair will likely get engaged “soon.” The source revealed, “He wants to make it unforgettable and extremely special.”
