For a glorious two weeks, we got the old Taylor Swift back. She was doing daily pap strolls in New York, she was wearing “cute” new ensembles and showing off her collection of cat t-shirts and snake gear. Then it all went away for several days, as Taylor was hard at work on her tour. On Wednesday, she was back in new York and she got pap’d on her way into her apartment building. She wore really cute sneakers, track shorts and a hoodie. What’s interesting about these photos is that even though she seemed to be wearing a cute outfit on purpose, I also get the feeling that this stroll wasn’t really a stroll. Maybe she didn’t want to be pap’d. And I have some thoughts as to why.
Karlie Kloss got engaged last week, or at least that’s when she announced her engagement. Ever since Karlie’s announcement, Taylor has been in the wind – yesterday was the first time she got pap’d since July 22nd (Karlie announced on the 24th). Put two and two together: Taylor didn’t want to be seen right after Karlie got engaged. Maybe Tay doesn’t even want to be seen right now. It’s especially remarkable given that Karlie posted a video where she told all of her closest friends about her engagement – just quick reaction shots from an assortment of Karlie’s nearest and dearest. And Taylor was nowhere to be seen.
Of course it’s worth noting that Taylor has not made ANY kind of public reference to Karlie or her engagement. Is it possible that Taylor congratulated her friend privately and just didn’t want to do it on Twitter or Instagram? Sure, it’s possible. But… I just think that whatever happened between these two was so bad that Taylor doesn’t even want to be SEEN when Karlie announced her engagement. Taylor is the champion grudge-holder, and speaking as someone who can hold a massive grudge for a very long time, this is like looking into a mirror. Taylor and Karlie didn’t have a mature, adult “growing apart” as friends. They had a massive falling out and Taylor is still f–king pissed at her.
All of which to say… maybe Karlie doesn’t give a f–k about Taylor either at this point. Karlie’s already spent time with Snake Enemy Katy Perry. And then this week, Karlie was photographed with HARRY STYLES. The Snake Fam was in shambles. So there you go. Everything that’s happening is all about The Enigma of Kaylor’s End. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
