Taylor Swift is in the news as the pop star who gave a number of the hit to the music industry has been ridiculed over “London Boy” song by locals who insist it describes the day out from hell.
As recently the 29 years old singer has launched her new album Lover this weak, and it got everyone talking. The “You belong with Me” hitmaker, who is dating British actor Joe Alwyn, sings about London in her this song of the new album “Lover.”
The song, “London Boy,” provides an insight into the relationship and sees the American star sing about enjoying nights out in West End strolling through the Camden market. But her romanticized view of London didn’t go down too well with people who actually live there.
People commented on their twitter accounts, “Taylor Swift’s London Boy is super- nice, but the idea of doing Shoreditch in the afternoon, Brixton in the evening and then back to Highgate is giving me major London Underground anxiety” one said on Twitter while another commented: “Any guy who enjoys through Camden market and introduces you to his mates at a pub in Highgate where they’re watching the rugby is a monster!” and one more said “If Taylor Swift’s London song wanted to be truly authentic, she’d moan about having to get from Brixton to Shoreditch and then say ‘sorry, city Mapper says it’s going to take seventy-nine minutes'”.
And one who even didn’t listen to the song also commented: “No one from London goes to the Comden market. We invented it purely to distract Spanish exchange students”. Many also commented.
So, what you think about the song?
