Since releasing the first two singles from her upcoming album Reputation, Taylor Swift has been silent on the music front. But that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t been planning her next single release, and now we have proof: the singer was spotted filming in London over the weekend, hitting up all the best tourist attractions with a crew in tow.
According to The Telegraph, Taylor was seen filming in a north London kebab shop, pedaling a bike on Millennium Bridge, and riding a double decker bus around Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Fans snapped photos of the pop star, wearing an oversized bomber jacket, combat boots, and a black shirt with what appears to be a large cobra snake on it. In the bus scene, Taylor can be seen wearing an oversized striped button down shirt with a plaid blazer over it. And in the entire video, she appears to be sporting tousled hair with dark makeup and dark lipstick — a very rocker-chic look.
The video shoot has even birthed a new meme already: Taylor’s backup dancer, who threw her body across a bus window to try and block paparazzi from capturing pics of Tay, a Tumblr user pointed out. The excited Tumblr user asked for help identifying the girl, writing, “THIS GIRL HIDING TAYLOR AND FLIPPING OFF THE PAP IS MY AESTHETIC WHAT IS HER NAME WHO IS SHE I STAN FOR HER.” And, because Taylor Swift is all-seeing, the queen herself commented on the post with answers. “Her name is Kiki and she is a TRUE HERO,” Taylor wrote.
The location and theme of the shoot have fans speculating that the new video could be an homage to Joe Alwyn, the 26-year-old British actor Taylor reportedly began dating earlier this year. Taylor has been spending lots of time in the city, even hosting an album listening party in her London home over the weekend for some very lucky fans. Fans are also fairly certain that Taylor’s latest song “…Ready For It?” is about Joe, so it could be fitting as the video for the second release from Reputation.
