Loved-up Tay-tay is moving to Blighty!
The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? She’s moving across the pond in the name of love
She came, she conquered, she bought the I Love London T-shirt! And now Taylor Swift’s planning on making boyfriend Joe Alwyn’s home hers, as well.
NW has learnt Tay’s soooo smitten with the actor, 26, and his native England, that she’s decided to put down permanent roots there – just as they near their one-year anniversary.
“Taylor thinks it’s the perfect place for her. She loves the atmosphere of the city and the people, and she has for a long time,” dishes a pal of the singer, who’s also dated Brits Tom Hiddleston and Harry Styles.
“She’s been talking about adding to her property portfolio and buying somewhere in North London, but now she’s decided she wants to be based there full-time and she’s ready to make the move. She’s been spending so much time there already, so it makes sense.”
Indeed, London town has become a second home to Tay, who even shot the video for a new song off her upcoming album Reputation there, with the clip featuring the places she’s been going to in secret with Joe.
During the late-night shoot, Taylor, 27, was spotted filming on an iconic double-decker bus with three gal pals as it drove around tourist spots like Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly.
She was also seen playing up for the camera in a black cab, cycling along the city’s Millennium Bridge and stopping in for a drink at her and Joe’s favourite pub.
“The video shows Taylor on a night out. All of the locations are places she has been to with Joe. She has spent months quietly going under the radar in London this year and has been out a lot more than anybody realises,” a source told UK paper The Sun. “She has been hanging out in these regular and unexpected places... She wants to show people she is just a normal girl.”
And Tay hammered that point home by featuring their fave kebab shop – Kentish Delight in North London – in the vid, too!
In the past, Tay’s admitted she loves greasy British takeaway, saying, “Ed Sheeran got me hooked on Nando’s... I know it’s quite a normal thing in England, but we are deprived
of the mango chicken wraps and grilled corn in America!”
And according to our source, the British crooner, 26, has been pushing Tay to become an unofficial Pommy for years.
“Ed just thinks that she suits London. Tay dismissed the idea at first, but everything changed when she met Joe,” dishes the pal. “She wants to settle down.”
And if the London move goes to plan, the pal reckons we’ll soon see a sparkler on a certain finger of Tay’s! OMG!
“Taylor wouldn’t think twice about saying ‘yes’ to Joe,” claims the insider. “She can see them growing old together, and raising a family in the UK. They’re crazy about each other.” Aw! n
‘In London, Taylor feels like she can just be herself and be a normal girl. She doesn’t need her whole squad,’ dishes the insider
Tay’s back in action! The singer was spotted filming a new music video around London on October 14
