Aside from the duet with Zayn Malik for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, Taylor Swift has been totally under the radar and relatively gone from the music world since last year. In fact, we haven’t heard so much as a Tweet from her since Jan 21st, of which she received a series of love and hate mixed replies from her Women’s March Tweet. The only photo we have of Taylor swift (outside of her one performance and Instagram posts) in 2017 is one of her leaving Body by Simone gym in West Hollywood.
What we do know is: She probably isn’t dating anyone. She’s changed her look to a more “her” appearance, scrapping the bleached blonde short bob for her natural color and longer length.
So why is she hiding? Some insiders speculate the break-up with Calvin Harris last summer got too nasty. According to the article in Daily Beast, things ended amicably but soon thereafter the arrows begin to fly on social media between Calvin and Taylor after she was spotted with Tom Hiddleston just weeks after their breakup. That love interest must have been a rebound, since it only lasted 3 months. Rumors swirled that she was pregnant, which she quickly dispelled at her CMA 2016 awards appearance wearing a figure hugging sheer dress.
Even most recently, a stalker of Taylor Swift was arrested for trespassing in the singer’s New York City apartment building and his recently discovered social media postings prove his obsession with the singer. Mohammad Jaffar, 29, was arrested after he allegedly called the star’s office dozens of times, rang her doorbell, and even hung out on the roof of her building. Creepy! If that isn’t enough to make someone lay low, I don’t know what is.
Since then, people have speculated that Swift is reflecting on her life more and talking to Jake Gyllenhaal again. There are reports that Taylor has been in contact with her ex ever since he has been in New York City starring in the Broadway show, Sunday in the Park.
Taylor announced that the ONLY performance she will have in 2017 is the one show she recently performed at Houston’s Club Nomadic February 4th. That it. That’s all we get.
“As far as I know I’m only doing one show in 2017, and as far as I know, this is that show”.
There have been rumors that Swift may release a surprise album, however, in May 2016, Swift told Vogue she was going to take a break.
“This is the first time in 10 years that I haven’t known [what’s next],” she told Vogue. “I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened…I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”
