Taylor Swift’s New Life In London

Taylor Swift is starting over-all in the name of love. The singer, 30, is relocating to Joe Alwyn’s native England, where she’s already begun putting down roots. “Taylor likes living with Joe in his city, going to his favorite places and drinking at pubs with his buddies,” a friend tells BIGGERSTARS.

“They can have a normal relationship there.” And the pop star’s happy to move forward. “Taylor loved living in New York, but she felt she was constantly on parade,” says the pal. “She’s much more relaxed in London, which is exactly what she needs.” For Joe’s part, the 29-year-old is “thrilled” Taylor’s making the move, adds the pal, as their long-distance relationship was becoming a strain. Now the two can focus on each other and plan their future together. “This has made them closer,” says the buddy. “They’re both so happy.”
