Taylor Swift Naked? Singer Responds to Birthday Suit Speculation
The rollout for Taylor Swift’s upcoming album has not gone as smoothly as the singer had likely hoped.
Her first release off “Reputation” was widely panned by critics, who also thought the Look What You Made Me Do video was, frankly, pretty lame.
So now the question is this:
Did Swift look to change up the negative narrative by acting like her bitter rival, Kim Kardashian?
Did she actually get naked for the just-unveiled “… Ready For It” video?
That’s what some folks are speculating after watching the footage below, which does appear to depict Taylor in her birthday suit.
But only if you look very quickly and not very closely, that is.
With some Internet users wondering whether she had chosen to bare it ALL for public consumption, an act that would run contrary to her fairly conservative persona, Swift wrote the following on Instagram yesterday:
“It truly warms my heart that so many ppl had so much to say about this bodysuit.”
The singer, of course, is being sarcastic.
A lot of the comments online from those who believed she really did go nude weren’t exactly positive.
As trolls so very often do, they criticized Swift and body-shamed the heck out of her, all while thinking she really did take her clothes off for the video.
In reality, she simply wore a bodysuit.
To make this point extra clear, Swift shared a number of pictures on social media of her in said bodysuit.
She took followers behind the scenes of her shoot for this video, which was inspired by the science-fiction genre and which features many special effects and pretend robots.
It’s interesting footage, that’s for sure.
And it contains plenty of Easter Eggs for Swifties, such as a reference to boyfriend Joe Alwyn, along with references to past Taylor Swift music videos.
To make it apparent once more, however, it does NOT include any shots of Taylor Swift naked.
Thankfully, most of Taylor’s loyal fans are well aware of this fact.
They have rushed to their hero’s defense on Twitter and other platforms.
Wrote one supporter: Do people not understand wtf a bodysuit is? The way the media is spinning this Taylor Swift music video teaser is crazy.
And another: That awkward moment when people are trying to shame Taylor Swift for being naked, and it’s just a bodysuit.
And a couple more:
Swift’s sixth studio album comes out on November 10.
Will you buy it?
