There’s a Hot New Conspiracy Theory About Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s relationship is probably fake.
Or at least it is according to this theory, which maintains that Taylor and Tom are actually just shooting a series of music videos together, which is so out there that the majority of our staff could totally see it being true.
Allow me to walk you through it, because I can already FEEL your heads spinning backwards.
Point #1: It’s time for Taylor to come out with a new album
Every two years, Taylor Swift puts out an album.
“1989” came out in 2014, “Red” came out in 2012, “Speak Now” came out in 2010, and the list goes on and on.
As of yet, T Swift hasn’t announced anything official for 2016, which has people wondering if she isn’t planning a Beyonce-level surprise for all of us.
Like shooting an entire visual album that tells the story of her whirlwind romance with a totally fictional boyfriend.
Is your interest piqued yet?
Point #2: Taylor and Tom have spent the bulk of their “relationship” hanging out in scenic locations
They’ve gone to the beach, they’ve gone to Rome, they’ve gone to the beach again, but the one thing all their photo op destinations have in common is that they look like they could be stills taken out of sappy, romantic movies like “The Notebook” and other box office smashes adapted from the literary novels of Nicholas Sparks.
Point #3: The same paparazzi company has been following Taylor and Tom around the world
Either this is one big coincidence, or they’re putting Goff Photos on the payroll to help convince everybody their relationship is real.
Point #4: Tom Hiddleston is an actor
This is a fact.
It’s also a fact that he’s currently being considered to play James Bond.
Could the publicity of being seen as a romantic, globe-trotting Romeo hurt his chances of snagging the role?
Just like grabbing the attention of Taylor Swift’s considerable fan base wouldn’t hurt box office sales.
Point #5: There’s no other way that Tom Hiddleston wearing an “I <3 T.S.” shirt makes sense
Actually, we can’t really see this fashion choice making sense within the context of the video either, unless it occurs during the portion where we see Taylor wanting to move on and be with her friends, while her boyfriend is still hopelessly in love with her, desperate to try anything that might make her want to stay with him, which only makes Taylor realize that she really has to break up with him.
Point #6: Taylor has yet to Instagram a picture of the two of them together
Okay, so this point is my own, but if Taylor had really moved on, wouldn’t she have Instagrammed a picture of the two of them together yet?
Do you know how many photos she posted from her 4th of July party today? And so far, Tom Hiddleston isn’t in a single one of them.
Does that not strike you as a little curious? Especially taking into consideration that she announced her relationship with Calvin Harris at her 4th of July party last year?
Like, in what kind of world is your relationship serious enough to meet the parents, but not serious enough to post a picture on Instagram?
Really makes you think, doesn’t it?
Maybe this is a sign we should spend less time speculating over the romantic lives of celebrities.
Who am I kidding?
