Did Taylor Swift Hint at Joe Alwyn Split in a Recent Concert?
News broke about Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s split over the weekend — but did she recently hint about it on tour?
People magazine reports that Swift switched out her song “Invisible String” for “The 1” on her setlist at her March 31 concert at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
In “Invisible String,” Taylor sings about two soulmates, while “The 1” is about a relationship that didn’t work out.
One Twitter user wrote, “Hold on cause taylor switched from invisible string (a song about hopeful love) to the 1 (a song about past love) on the set list…”
Referencing the breakup reports, another one asked, “Is this why she switched invisible string for the 1?"
A source recently confirmed to the outlet that Taylor and Joe’s breakup after six years.
Another insider claimed that the couple broke up due to "differences in their personalities."
Along with saying that Taylor and Joe "weren't the right fit for one another," they went on, "They've had rough patches before and always worked things out, so friends thought they would take some time apart but eventually come back together."
"Joe has struggled with Taylor's level of fame and the attention from the public," the source argued. "The differences in their personalities have also become harder to ignore after years together. They've grown apart."
According to the insider, the split was "not dramatic," adding, "Taylor didn't see them working out in the long run."
The insider insisted, "They are friendly. She doesn't have anything bad to say about Joe. They just grew apart. Taylor is staying very focused on her tour right now."
It might explain why Joe hasn’t been spotted at any of Taylor’s concerts lately.
The pair had opted for a private approach to their relationship, which began in 2016.
Years ago, Taylor explained why she preferred not to speak about the romance. She told The Guardian, “I've learned that if I do, people think it's up for discussion, and our relationship isn't up for discussion."
While she may not have liked to discuss the relationship, their relationship seemingly inspired several of her songs, like “… Ready for It?,” “End Game,” “Delicate,” “King of My Heart,” “Lover,” and “London Boy.”
In fact, using the name William Bowery, Alwyn co-wrote tunes on Swift's "Folklore" and "Evermore" albums.
At the Grammys last year, Swift showed some love for Joe in her acceptance speech, saying, "Joe is the first person that I play every single song I wrote, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine."
