Blake Lively Praises Pal Taylor Swift’s New Album, Folklore

Taylor Swift has received a lot of praise for the surprise release of her eighth studio album. So, why won’t her best pal, Blake Lively also support her and appreciate her?

Taylor released her eighth studio album called Folklore on Friday. Her friend, Blake took to Instagram to add her own compliment to the numerous others.

She thanks Taylor and asks if they can all crawl into her piano with her and live in this album. Blake was referring to the mystical piano that Taylor crawled into to discover another world. The video of the song ‘Cardigan’, which also premiered on Friday as well.

Blake further continued saying Taylor’s album is just like her “full of heart, soul, humor, passion, intelligence, wit, whimsy, reality, imagination, strength, vulnerability”.

Fans had few theories that suggest a song on Folklore titled Betty unveiled the name of Blake’s nine-month-old daughter. A source close to the situation confirmed that the song was made for Blake’s third daughter.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively welcomed their youngest daughter in October last year. They haven’t yet revealed the name of their newborn but we think Swifties have found her name. Fans are speculating that Taylor’s song ‘Betty’, from her new album Folklore, is in honor of the child.

The song is about the mistreatment of a girl named Betty. However, the other names mentioned in the song are Inez and James. And guess what?! Those are the names of Blake and Ryan’s three and five-year-old daughters.

“You heard the rumors from Inez. You can’t believe a word she says,” Swift sings. In another line, she sings, “She said ‘James, get in, let’s drive.’”

Swifties Find Easter Eggs

Fans speculated about the same. One user wrote that they are so invested in the idea now. Some kept asking did Taylor just reveal Blake and Ryan’s youngest child’s name.

This wouldn’t be the first time Lively and Reynolds’ family has been part of Swift’s music. In 2017, James had a small cameo on the 30-year-old singer’s track, “Gorgeous,” off her Reputation album.

We think Swifties are on fire and the more they listen to every song, the more they are going to find clues about either Taylor or her friends. Before Taylor Swift released the album, fans took to social media to speculate a lot of different theories about her upcoming album.


Taylor’s fans think that Joe Alwyn has co-written the songs of the album with the singer. The singer surprised her fans on Thursday morning claiming she will be releasing her album at midnight.

She took to Instagram and said a lot of things that she did plan did not happen and things she did not plan did happen. Taylor explained that the thing that did happen is her eighth studio album, Folklore. She wrote “Surprise!” and announced she will be releasing the album at midnight. The singer explained that she has put all her whims, dreams, fears, and musings into the album.

And after she announced this, her fans will obviously go for a search to find clues about the album. We can count on Swifties when we need information about Taylor or her albums. With a little bit of research, some fans claimed that Joe will be a part of this album in a unique way.

Is William Bowery, Taylor’s Boyfriend, Joe Alwyn?

The claims started from Taylor talking about the team who helped her make the music. “I wrote and recorded this music in isolation but got to collaborate with some musical heroes of mine; @aarondessner (who has co-written or produced 11 of the 16 songs), @boniver (who co-wrote and was kind enough to sing on one with me), William Bowery (who co-wrote two with me) and @jackantonoff (who is basically musical family at this point),” she shared online.

Fans immediately started to speculate that William Bowery is actually Joe Alwyn. He did not have an Instagram account which sort of convinced fans. A fan site was quick to notice that Taylor and Joe had their first met in Hotel Bowery in New York.

Only Taylor can confirm if these rumors are actually true. As for us, we want to believe Swifties.
