Nate Ruess of the band Fun, formerly of the Format, once sang, "I love love/I love being in love/I don't care what it does to me," a very nice sentiment that I agree with. Who doesn't love love? Love is great! Love is grand! But some are bigger fans of love than others, and there's one person who's universally acknowledged as an upper echelon member of the love fan club: Taylor Swift.
She writes and sings and dances about love. She very clearly loves being in love―which is why her newest love short story with actor Tom Hiddleston isn't wholly unbelievable. He's cute! He's charming! He's got moves! He's British.
But someone over at E! online just introduced an interesting theory...that actually makes a lot of sense.
What if Taylor Swift―who also loves her music, her fans, and her business―is filming a music video?
Well...as E! points out, for someone who's very private, Swift is putting on quite a few public displays of affection―from super-sweet smooches on the beach to arm-in-arm strolls with Hiddleswift's mum.
Also interesting: The images from their worldwide love tour have almost all been captured by the same photo agency. Which means they're extremely lucky, their Swift-dar is well-tuned...or perhaps they're being tipped off.
Another point E! brings up: Taylor's private plane. Hey, it makes sense that the two are taking it on their lurve journey―if you own a Bentley, why would you rent a Zipcar? But as E! puts it, "Still, she is footing the bill. Could it be that it's in his contract as the leading man of her new music video?"
Swift dropped her last album, 1989, two years ago, and her previous albums have all hit two years apart (Red, 2012, Speak Now, 2010, Fearless, 2008). By that measure, we're due for another this year....
So...maaaaybe it's love...but maybe we have a big, elaborate (which Swift's videos/mini-movies already tend to be), Beyoncé/Justin Bieber style album and video drop in our future and the great, super cute actor Tom Hiddleston is a part of that. Maybe it's about fame! The media's obsession with Swift's relationships! The lack of privacy when you're a celeb dating another celeb!
...and maybe, just maaaaybe... Calvin Harris, Swift's also famous ex, is in on it.
