Only OG fans will get that.
Swift is infamous for her whirlwind romances and musical tracks to follow. Her romantic life has been in the spotlight for the majority of her career however, after being constantly shamed for it, she’s made the shift to being more private. The “Lavender Haze” singer dated Alywn for six years before the public had any idea about their relationship. In her new album, Midnights, Swift became more open about her long-term relationship, with the first song on the track being about Alwyn specifically.
She previously shared on social media, “I happened upon the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men. I looked it up because I thought it sounded cool. And it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the ’50s where they would describe being in love. If you in the ‘lavender haze,’ then that meant you were in that all-encompassing love glow. And I thought that was really beautiful.”
Swift continued, “I guess, theoretically, when you’re in the ‘lavender haze,’ you’ll do anything to stay there.”
“And not let people bring you down off of that cloud. I think that a lot of people have to deal with this now, not just like ‘public figures,’ because we live in the era of social media, and if the world finds out if you’re in love with somebody they’re going to weigh in on it.”
The Grammy Award Winning artist touched on her personal relationship explaining, “Like my relationship for six years, we’ve had to dodge weird rumors and tabloid stuff, and we just ignore it. So this song is about the act of ignoring that stuff to protect the real stuff.”

Fans (and everyone else) had an inkling about the break-up between Swift and Alwyn when the singer changed up her setlist for her Eras tour. Originally, Swift was performing “Invisible String,” a love song from her album Folklore. However, for her show in Arlington, Texas, Swift swapped out the heart-hugging track about her and Alwyn for a break-up song also from Folklore, titled “The 1.”
ET revealed that their split “was not dramatic” and that “the relationship has just run its course,” according to the source. Swift and Alwyn have yet to comment about the breakup themselves however, with their efforts to stay private while together, it’s safe to assume that they probably will stay private about this as well.
