Taylor Swift usually interacts with her fans on social media on a daily basis, so when the singer/professional friend collector went radio silent recently, many wondered if there was trouble in Taylor-dise.
Naturally, the Internet began to wildly speculate about what might be dimming Taylor’s shine, and one of the most amusing rumors posited that Taylor was pissed at Adele for shattering all the sales records she’d set with 1989.
Rumors of a feud between the two reigning queens of pop began circulating back when Adele threw subtle shade at Taylor in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Now, Taylor is breaking her social media silence to ensure the world that she’s not sulking in bed and drawing up storyboards for Bad Blood II: The Bad Blood-ening, but is instead wrapping up her tour and planning an extended vacay.
Swift is currently in Australia, where she’ll perform a handful of shows before celebrating her December 13 birthday with a much-deserved break.
Of course, before her hiatus she’d like to clarify a few matters for her fans – and for the Aussie press who have been eagerly reporting that Taylor is hating on Adele and flying Selena Gomez and the rest of her squad Down Under for an epic birthday bash.
“Aussie press, I love your enthusiasm,” Taylor wrote on Instagram last night. “But my birthday isn’t for 2 weeks and it’ll be a quiet one this year. Let’s take it down a notch.”
Taylor went on to add that she’s taking her entire 125-person tour crew on all-expenses-paid vacation, which is the kind of grand gesture/PR stunt that’s become one of Taylor’s signature moves.
Naturally, Swifty never mentioned Adele by name, but breaking your silence and putting the rumors to rest by revealing your latest act of largesse, rather than returning fire is kind of a brilliant maneuver.
