Taylor Swift visited Ireland just days before skipping the Met Gala in 2021, stopping by local businesses and taking selfies with employees.
Taylor Swift has been spending a lot of time away from the spotlight recently, but on September 9 and 10, she was spotted visiting a bar and restaurant in Belfast, Ireland! The singer did not attend the 2021 Met Gala on September 13, yet she was in Ireland just days before. Taylor appeared in multiple images uploaded by staff members at the bar and restaurant she frequented from her time in the city, and she appeared to be having a great time.
In many of the photographs, the singer was seen clutching a drink in her hand. Her curling bangs were swept across her forehead as she wore her hair up. Taylor wore her signature strong red lip on both occasions and was happy to take photographs with everyone. Taylor was apparently in town to spend time with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, who was not present in the photos, as he shot his next show, Conversations With Friends. We adore a partner that is always there for us.

Taylor hasn’t attended the Met Gala since 2016, when she was one of the event’s co-chairs. Taylor was famed for her bleached blonde hair for the high-profile event that year, and it turned out to be a life-changing evening for her. Taylor met Joe for the first time during the 2016 Met Gala (as she recalled in her 2017 song “Dress”). She was, however, dating Calvin Harris at the time.
Taylor spent a lot of time with a different guy that night – Tom Hiddleston — despite the fact that she thought Joe was “beautiful” the first time she met him. Taylor and Calvin broke up less than a month after the event, and she went on to date Tom. They enjoyed a steamy summer romance, but when it ended in September, she secretly began seeing Joe. It wasn’t until May 2017 that their relationship became public.
Taylor and Joe have made it a point to keep their relationship as discreet as possible since then. They are rarely seen together in public and have yet to walk the red carpet together. The words in Taylor’s songs, on the other hand, have provided us some insight into the couple’s very serious relationship.
That isn’t to say that Tay isn’t frightened of reliving her prior tragedy! She’s presently working on re-recording her first six albums in order to get the rights to them. She’s bringing Red back next, along with a few songs that didn’t make the original cut of the 2012 album, after releasing the re-record of Fearless in April. Taylor has characterized Red as her “one authentic breakup record,” therefore she had to dig deep into her emotions to perform those songs once more! On November 19, Red (Taylor’s Version) will be released.
