HowDid Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn Meet? The Story Is Way More Low-Key Than You Might Expect
泰勒·斯威夫特和乔·阿尔文是怎么认识的呢?这个故事比你想象的要低调得多。

Taylor Swift has mostly been pretty open about her love life. That changed during her Reputation era though, when she made it very clear that the old Taylor had died.
一直以来泰勒·斯威夫特的感情生活都很公开。直到她在Reputation专辑里表示过去的泰勒已经被埋葬了(The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now),事情发生了变化。

So, stop ringing the phone. Swift's been linked to actor Joe Alwyn for a little while now, but the couple are keeping things uncharacteristicallyhush hush.
所以,别再打电话了。斯威夫特和演员乔·阿尔文已经在一起有段时间了,但是他俩都保持着不同寻常的低调。

Still, I'm really curious to know, how did Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn meet?
我还是很好奇他俩是怎么认识的?

While the reports have yet to be officially confirmed, it's suspected that Swift and Alwyn met at a secret Kings of Leon concert in New York on Oct. 12, 2016.
虽然还没得到官方承认,有媒体猜测斯威夫特和阿尔文是在2016年10月12日的里昂国王的秘密演唱会上相遇的。

In May of the following year a Swift fan site posted video evidence that Alwyn attended the same event, so it's likely that the lovers first crossed paths here.
17年的5月,斯威夫特的粉丝在上传的视频里发现阿尔文也去了这场演唱会,这两人很可能是在这相遇的。

The couple managed to hide their budding relationship impressively well, since there don't seem to be any reports or public sightings of them from the time they reportedly met until May, 2017, when that month The Sun broke the exclusive that the two were in fact dating.
他们两人的恋情藏得很好,因为从据传他们相识的时间以来,似乎没有任何关于他们的报道,也没有在公众场合被看到,直到17年5月英国《太阳报》独家爆出他们在约会。

As a source reportedly told the paper: “Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship." “But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet," they added.
据《太阳报》的消息来源称:“泰勒和乔是来真的,他们在认真地谈恋爱。”他们还补充到,“但是在经过上一段和抖森的恋情之后,他们决定保持低调”。

As Bustle wrote in Sept. 2016, Swift's relationship with the Thor actor very swiftly became "a punchline, which isn't just unfair — it's insensitive."
正如美国《Bustle》杂志在2016年9月份的文章里所写的,斯威夫特和这位《雷神》的演员之间的恋情很快变成了她情史的“又一笑谈,这非但是不公平——还不理智。”

As the insider also told The Sun back in May, Swift went to great lengths to hide her preliminary visits to Alwyn in London from the public eye.
也如知情人5月份对《太阳报》所说的那样,斯威夫特费了很大的力气来向媒体隐藏她早期去伦敦见阿尔文的行踪。

今日词汇

hush/h/

v. 别出声

Hush这个词在英语中相当于中文的“嘘”,也就是让人小声点、别做声。

Hush now and try to sleep.
别出声了,睡吧。

文中这里连用两个hush是在用比较调侃的方式表示“不出声”。
