Fans are questioning Taylor Swift about her decision to have a public relationship with Travis Kelce while keeping her relationship with actor Joe Alwyn hidden.

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce aren’t hiding their romance.Swift’s decision to have a public relationship with the NFL tight end is something new she’s trying after dating indie actor Joe Alwyn for six years in private.

“When you say a relationship is public, that means I’m going to see him do what he loves, we’re showing up for each other, other people are there, and we don’t care,” Swift told Time after being named the magazine’s Person of the Year.”The opposite of that is you have to go to an extreme amount of effort to make sure no one knows that you’re seeing someone,” she continued. “We’re just proud of each other.

Swift has been known to keep her relationships extremely private, besides the lyrics she shares in her songs. The “Midnights” singer doesn’t typically speak about her romantic life in the press, and she’s been known to run from a car into an event with a boyfriend instead of allowing photographs from paparazzi.

Alwyn’s creative side led Swift to collaborate with the actor, who used the pen name William Bowery, during their relationship. He’s listed as a co-author on songs from her albums “folklore,” “evermore” and “Midnights” – “exile,” “betty,” “champagne problems,” “coney Island,” “evermore” and “Sweet Nothing

The “Conversations with Friends” actor was notoriously missing from the audience during Swift’s NYU commencement speech – where she was also given an honorary doctorate degree in fine arts.Even the end of Swift’s relationship with Alwyn was shrouded in secrecy. The news was shared with the world in April, right after Swift kicked off “The Eras Tour,” but few details were shared.

“They had plenty in common and fell in love in a safe bubble while she was retreating from the world during ‘Reputation,’” a source told People magazine at the time. “Then, the pandemic hit, and they were locked down together and able to continue growing their relationship in this insulated way. But he didn’t really ‘know’ her yet outside of that bubble.”The indie actor, who debuted his career in 2016 with “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” reportedly struggled “with Taylor’s level of fame and the attention from the public
