She is said to have come out, writing songs with her boyfriend and singing her feud with manager Scooter Braun. About Folklore, Taylor Swift’s latest album, released on Thursday night through Friday, has been circulating several speculative theories among fans. NU.nl lists a number of them.
Feud with Scooter Braun
According to the ‘Swifties’, as her fans are also called, the song goes My Tears Ricochet about her argument with manager Scooter Braun. The manager of Justin Bieber, among others, bought the Big Machine Music Group label in July 2019 for more than $ 300 million. As a result, he owns the music rights to Swift’s first six albums over which the singer competed with him.
In the song Swift sings: “An embittered tormentor showing up at the funeral of his fallen object of obsessionIn other words, “A bitter executioner shows up at the funeral of his obsolete obsession.” Fans claim that the executioner in question is Braun.
The sentence “And when you can’t sleep at night you hear my stolen lullabies“would refer to the Swift albums that the label bought by Braun now owns. And so there are a few sentences in the song that according to the ‘Swifties’ seamlessly connect to the still existing quarrel between the singer and the manager .
Blake’s baby name
Blake Lively, one of Swift’s best friends, gave birth to a daughter last October. The actress and her husband Ryan Reynolds have still not revealed the name of their baby, but it is now alleged that Swift subtly reveals it in the song Betty.
The song itself is about a girl who is being bullied, but the name Betty is said to have taken Swift from the third child of her famous actor friends. The other two names featured in the song are Inez and James, the five- and three-year-old daughters of Lively and Reynolds.
It wouldn’t be the first time that one of their children has made a special contribution to Swift’s music, as James, now five years old, was featured in her song in 2017 Gorgeous.
Swift is said to be bisexual
The number Betty causes even more confusion among her fans. Swift sings to ‘Betty’: “If you kiss me, will it be just like I dreamed it? If I told you it was just a summer thing? I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything, But I know I miss you.”
With this, the thirty-year-old singer would subtly tell that she also likes women. These rumors have been going on among her fans for some time, despite Swift gossiping in an interview with Vogue swept off the table.
Relationship with Joe Alwyn is over – or not?
Lots of numbers on it Folklore are about a broken relationship. One plus one is two, her fans conclude. And so they are convinced that Swift’s relationship with actor Joe Alwyn, with whom she has been together for more than three years, has ended. So sings on The 1: “Waking up alone. But we were something, don’t you think so?”
Her fans could probably breathe a sigh of relief, as the singer dropped the announcement of Folklore know that for the lyrics she mainly took inspiration from her imagination, and not from her own life experiences.

Alwyn co-wrote her album
Another theory about Alwyn seems more plausible. He is said to have co-written two songs on Swift’s eighth studio album. When announcing Folklore the singer thanked songwriters Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, Bon Iver and someone named William Bowery.
The first three names are known, but the last one did not ring a bell with anyone. Swift’s fans immediately investigated and discovered that there are no songwriters or producers to bear the name William Bowery. That must therefore be a pseudonym, it was concluded.
They soon ended up at Alwyn: the couple was seen at the Bowery hotel in New York in 2016. The fans also found strong indications for the first name in the pseudonym. The The FavouriteThe actor is the great-grandson of William Alwyn, who made his money composing and making music.
WILLIAM BOWERY theory
on oct 2016, taylor (w her squad) & alwyn were spotted in BOWERY hotel. (smth special mustve happened here, that’s why she used d name “BOWERY” i guess?)
WILLIAM alwyn is literally joe alwyns great-grandpa. he was was composer, conductor, and music teacher
