“But Daddy, I love him” is a line from the Disney animated movie The Little Mermaid, which was released in Taylor‘s birth year 1989.

In the scene, Ariel’s father King Triton has discovered her romance with Prince Eric and forbids her from ever going to the surface again. She says the line to express her love for him, to which Triton exclaims, “No!”

Ariel is a princess who yearns to know more about the world and live among humans. She gives up her voice for a chance to find that happiness. Taylor‘s fans have connected this storyline to her relationship with ex Joe Alwyn as many fans believe that it was his choice to keep their romance so private. Fans believe that Taylor essentially gave up her voice during the relationship in order to try and find happiness.

You might remember that Taylor once dressed up as Ariel on Halloween too!
