Inside Taylor Swift's London life as star prepares to bring record-breaking Eras tour to the capital

Some 90,000 people are set to descend on Wembley stadium on Friday as Taylor Swift starts a mammoth four-day musical marathon at the arena – to the delight of her London fans.

 

 

The songstress, 34, has already wowed fans with performances in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff marked with marriage proposals, a Welsh welcome and even a small earthquake.

However, the star is a little more familiar with the capital, having reportedly lived in the city with her ex-boyfriend and ‘London Boy’ Joe Alwyn, as well as dating other British heartthrobs such as Harry Styles and Tom Hiddleston.

Some 90,000 people are set to descend on Wembley stadium on Friday as Taylor Swift starts a mammoth four-day musical marathon at the arena – to the delight of her London fans.

The songstress, 34, has already wowed fans with performances in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff marked with marriage proposals, a Welsh welcome and even a small earthquake.

However, the star is a little more familiar with the capital, having reportedly lived in the city with her ex-boyfriend and ‘London Boy’ Joe Alwyn, as well as dating other British heartthrobs such as Harry Styles and Tom Hiddleston.

Taylor’s adoration for London kicked in long before she made the move over with Joe Alwyn.

The singer had a three-month romance with One Direction star Harry Styles from November 2012 through to January 2013.

Taylor was also linked to Matty Healy in 2015 and the pair were pictured partying together at The Soho House Pop-Up in the city with Nick Grimshaw.

She dated actor Tom Hiddleston between June and September in 2016, who was born and bred in London.

The couple even took the huge step of meeting one another’s parents, with Taylor jetting to the UK to spend time with Tom’s mother in Suffolk, while he went to her adopted home town of Nashville.

Following their split, Taylor moved to the Big Smoke once she began dating Joe Alwyn, who went on to reportedly become the subject of her song London Boy.

The move also came shortly after the infamous fall out with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Speaking to TIME Magazine about this time in her life, the Bad Blood songstress said: ‘That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before.

‘I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls. I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.’

According to an insider who spoke to The Sun in 2017, Taylor had been ‘walking around with Joe in London using disguises, like scarves and hats, to keep her identity under wraps.’

It was reported that the singer went on to spend most of lockdown in north London with Joe, living in Primrose Hill and also spending time in Crouch End.

It’s no surprise that after spending so much time in the city, it has made its way into some of her music – and her most recent studio album, The Tortured Poet’s Department, is no exception.

In the track So Long, London, as well as explicitly mentioning the city, she sings: ‘You left me at the house by the Heath,’ seemingly referencing Hampstead Heath.

Another line reads: ‘I’m just mad as hell ’cause I loved this place,’ as she references leaving the city post-breakup.

The Black Dog, which is featured on her new album, seems to be a reference to a very specific spot in London – a free house in Vauxhall.

‘You forgot to turn [your location] it off,’ Swift sings. ‘And so I watch as you walk into some bar called The Black Dog.’
