Taylor Swift celebrated her Saturday Night Live appearance by showing some rare PDA with boyfriend Joe Alwyn. The singer, dressed in a black blazer and sparkling pants, headed to Zuma in New York for the show’s after-party, arriving hand-in-hand with Alwyn.
Swift has taken a different approach to her relationship with Alwyn, keeping their romantic life as far away from the public as possible. In an interview with The Guardian in August, she explained that she’s learned some lessons from her previous relationships that led her to not talk about her private life.
“I’ve learned that if I do, people think it’s up for discussion, and our relationship isn’t up for discussion. If you and I were having a glass of wine right now, we’d be talking about it – but it’s just that it goes out into the world,” she said. “That’s where the boundary is, and that’s where my life has become manageable. I really want to keep it feeling manageable.”
Of course, she’s still one of the most famous people on the planet, so the occasional sighting of Swift and Alwyn is inevitable. She also hasn’t shied away from discussing her relationship through her music. Still, the couple has worked to keep things as low-key as possible since they started dating in 2017.
“Taylor really got lucky to meet Joe, and she is the first one to say it. Joe really is one of a kind,” a source told People earlier this year. “Keeping it private from the beginning really helped their relationship. They were able to get to know each other in peace.”
