Taylor Swift got candid about how she balances her international fame and her desire to keep her personal life private.

The singer famously enjoyed public romances with fellow stars such as Harry Styles and Joe Jonas in the past, but the 30-year-old has kept things as low-profile as possible with current boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn.

The Red hitmaker opened up about the relationship during a chat with legendary musician Sir Paul McCartney for Rolling Stone magazine.

It began when the singer was discussing the inspiration behind one of her folklore tracks, Peace, which includes the lyric ‘give you my wild, give you my child.’

Taylor explained: ‘Peace is actually more rooted in my personal life. I know you have done a really excellent job of this in your personal life: carving out a human life within a public life, and how scary that can be when you do fall in love and you meet someone, especially if you’ve met someone who has a very grounded, normal way of living.

‘I, oftentimes, in my anxieties, can control how I am as a person and how normal I act and rationalize things, but I cannot control if there are 20 photographers outside in the bushes and what they do and if they follow our car and if they interrupt our lives. I can’t control if there’s going to be a fake weird headline about us in the news tomorrow.’

When Sir Paul asked if her Joe sympathizes with the struggle, Taylor replied: ‘Oh, absolutely. But I think that in knowing him and being in the relationship I am in now, I have definitely made decisions that have made my life feel more like a real life and less like just a storyline to be commented on in tabloids.

‘Whether that’s deciding where to live, who to hang out with, when to not take a picture — the idea of privacy feels so strange to try to explain, but it’s really just trying to find bits of normalcy. ‘

?When Taylor Swift walked into Paul McCartney?s MPL Studios office in London, in early October, for this issue?s cover story, she arrived without assistants or stylists or even a makeup person. (Appropriately, Taylor chose to wear clothes designed by Paul?s daughter Stella McCartney for the occasion.) For most of the day it was just Taylor and Paul, along with Paul?s daughter Mary McCartney, a photographer, in what turned out to be a revelatory meeting of megastars from across the generations. Taylor came armed with questions; Paul was loose and relaxed, singing to Motown songs and sharing personal stories, like the time he made veggie burgers for Quincy Jones in his kitchen. They talked about songwriting, how to keep a semblance of normal life as a celebrity, and the risk-taking albums they both made during lockdown.?

She continued: ‘That’s what that song Peace is talking about. Like, would it be enough if I could never fully achieve the normalcy that we both crave? Stella [McCartney] always tells me that she had as normal a childhood as she could ever hope for under the circumstances.’

Tay and Joe are thought to have got together in 2016, but they’ve kept most of the details to themselves.

All we know is that news of their relationship first properly broke in May 2017 and the pair have only made a few public appearances in the years that have followed.

Some theories speculate that they may have met at the 2016 Met Gala, with fans inferring this from lyrics of Taylor’s song, dress.
