This Taylor Swift And Tom Hiddleston Conspiracy Theory Makes Too Much Sense
Taylor Swift's relationship with Tom Hiddleston has been a fascinating one to watch from afar.
The couple's relationship emerged from the ashes of T-Swift's previous relationship with Calvin Harris, and ever since, there's been many highlights along the way.
We had Harris coming out and publicly addressing the breakup. We've had HiddleSwift piling on the PDA at a concert. We even saw them meet each other's parents.
You might even say that the moment between Swift and Hiddleston's mother was picture perfect. In fact, maybe it was too perfect.
E! News writer Holly Passalaqua put together an interesting case that Taylor Swift's latest relationship could all be for show. What show exactly? A new album, perhaps?
Are Hiddleswift toying with our emotions? Is Taylor trying to prove just how crazy the media and the world in general can go over her relationships? (Mission accomplished, regardless.) Is she filming a music video or visual release to accompany her new album, à la Beyoncé's multimedia extravaganza Lemonade?
The writer goes on to note a mountain of suspicious facts surrounding Hiddleswift's relationship and it's easy to pick out the most interesting among them.
There's the fact that they've been traveling with security guards who've been shot holding what looks like a stack of passports, possibly for other crew. Then there's the fact that she's been releasing an album every two years for the past decade (and it's been two years since she dropped 1989).
E! also cites other examples of "evidence", too.
Here's the biggest tip-off though: How does the same photo agency continue to get so many high quality shots of the couple at private times?
Could the photographers being doing contracted work?
Interestingly, Spencer Pratt raised this same question in an interview last month, when he wondered out loud why pictures of Hiddleswift seem so manufactured.
I think someone on one of their teams may have tipped off the paparazzi… Then again, she's Taylor Swift and there have to be people who see her walking to the beach and call a tabloid. But, if that's the case, we haven't seen any fan pics, and that's what makes me think it's an exclusive [to the paparazzi]. We would see more parking lot shots from fans, and stuff like that… It's definitely a staged photo, don't get me wrong… I don't want to judge T-Swift; maybe she didn't know, but I think one of them did it. It actually might be Taylor Swift.
Are they shooting a video? Eh, who knows.
Are they both in a relationship and deliberately milking it for all the publicity it's worth at the same time? Maybe.
Whether or not any of this means anything, this much is true: There's definitely reason to side-eye the existence of Hiddleswift, a least a little bit -- and side-eyes are always the smoke before the fire that is a conspiracy theory.
