UPDATE // JULY 14: I honestly couldn't bring myself to write an entirely new update concerning the legitimacy over Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's newfound romance, but for the sake of consistency it was important (opinion) you get the latest update: they are the real deal.
During an interview about his Emmy nomination for his role on AMC’s The Night Manager on Thursday (July 14), which he described as "fantastic," Hiddleston confirmed he and Swift are in mad love, of sorts. A reporter asked him of the rumors his romance with Swift is all for show.
“Well, um. How best to put this?”, he said as the flashbacks of strolling on the beach in Rhode Island and kissing selfies in Rome flashed through his consciousness. “That notion is — look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we’re very happy. Thanks for asking. That’s the truth. It’s not a publicity stunt.”
My first instinct is to scream how 'OVER-THE-TOP' the debacle is, but who am I to judge? It's not like Swift is waving this monstrosity in our face...
EARLIER // JULY 5:
Taylor Swift might have just outdone herself if rumors are true her romance with Tom Hiddleston is an elaborate music video concept.
There's no denying the budding romance between Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston is unnerving and delicious. While I want nothing to do with it, I can't help but feast my eyes on the dozens of perfectly shot paparazzi photos taken around the world – selfies on the beach in Rhode Island, kissing in Rome, MEETING HIS MOTHER IN LONDON. At first glance, it appeared Swift was disgustingly done with ex Calvin Harris and hired a pap to film her every move with the James Bond contender, but after their latest stunt, Hiddleston wearing a "I <3 T.S." tank top over the 4th of July weekend, it looks like the joke's on us.
Fans are beginning to put two and two together, springing up the rumor Swift isn't actually in a burning romance with Hiddleston, but is planning on a ridiculously clever music video to scalp the media for going IN on her personal life like she knew they would. Some also speculate it's a performance piece in order to fool the media.
Before 1989 and Calvin Harris, Swift was, as she put it last year, "a national lightning rod for slut shaming." This could be the perfect way to kick off her next era and have the last laugh.
I'm onto you, Swift, and am definitely here for it.
