No, Taylor Swift Does Not Travel Inside a Suitcase
Taylor swift can be a stealthy character when she tries to be.
The pop star tends to go through phases of total over-exposure (see: the Tom Hiddleston days) and then disappear off the grid almost entirely. In recent months, sad fans and bored paparazzi have been suffering through the latter.
In fact, Swift's Manhattan apartment has become so shrouded in mystery, that when a Splash News photographer captioned a photo claiming the singer was being carried out of her home in a large suitcase, the internet was quick to cling to the bizarre story. Similar fan theories have actually been circulating since May.
“Taylor Swift being transported in a huge suitcase from her Tribeca apartment into her truck, in the trunk,” the caption read. “Taylor Swift remains to be unseen for a long time.”
At Travel + Leisure, we applaud innovative methods of travel (and appreciate inventive packing tips), so we were really pulling for this one. We were not alone.
But, unfortunately, Spin went to the source and crushed all of our dreams.
“I literally just put the phone down from someone on Taylor’s camp,” a Splash News rep told Spin. “We’re having to actually retract that.”
At this point, it's safe to assume that Swift is either holed up in her apartment laughing... or realizing this is a genius idea she needs to try out.
Adele reportedly has used the method to get onstage from her dressing room without being seen while touring, though the case she's claimed to be transported in has wheels.
“How I get to this stage makes me so sweaty, I'm drenched,” she told a crowd earlier this year. “I can't tell you until the end, you'll laugh when you find out.”
A note to swift: If you do try this out, use a lightweight suitcase. The fabric is more breathable, and your carriers will thank you.
