Over the weekend, during a tour stop in Foxborough, MA, Taylor shared some personal insights with her fans. In a TikTok video, she revealed: "I’ve never been this fulfilled in my life, in all its facets, ever.” 

She thanked her fans for being a part of her happiness, expressing that the tour felt more like a celebration of a life that finally made sense to her. 

Before their split, rumours were rife about a possible engagement. Taylor later referenced this in her lyrics for "Lavender Haze", singing, "All they keep asking me.../ Is if I'm gonna be your bride / The only kind of girl they see / Is a one-night or a wife."

"It’s not really about wanting to be private, it’s more of a response to something else," he expressed. "We exist in a society that is increasingly intrusive. ... The more you share — even if you don’t share — something will invariably be taken."
