On Friday, the internet went crazy over the fact that Taylor Swift erased most of the posts on all of her social media accounts and her personal website without any discernible warning or the release of a personal statement. What on Earth is happening and is Swift OK?
On Friday Aug. 18, pictures and posts on Swift’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts mysteriously disappeared. While some posts have been reposted, her accounts are devoid of profile photos or even a current post to explain what’s going on. This has left her fans both intrigued and worried; they took note immediately as it was happening and voiced a range of concerns, including the possibility that she was hacked.

What could Swift possibly be doing? While a personal break from social media might be one good thought, it’s also possible that she’s prepping us all for a major return to the music scene. It’s certainly not out of the ordinary for a singer to do something extreme in order to get the public’s attention, so Swift might be taking a page out of that playbook in order to announce a new album or maybe even a world tour.
Swift has been relatively quiet all summer. Her annual Fourth of July bash didn’t pan out for fans who were anticipating it on social media. She’s also been very private about her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. The duo has been pretty stealthy in avoiding the paparazzi. She additionally has kept a low profile because of her now-closed sexual assault case against former DJ David Mueller, for which she was awarded $1 and was cleared in his countersuit against her.
So can we expect a new album soon? Is she reinventing herself the way Madonna has done throughout her career? Will she unexpectedly drop an album at midnight the way Beyoncé does so well? It’s sending everyone into Sherlock Holmes mode as fans scramble to find answers.
There are a lot of questions to be answered, but Swift definitely wants us to look at the clues. She is starting fresh on every single account. She might be ready for a rebirth where all of the girl squad events are a distant memory and any fight with Katy Perry is nothing but ancient history.
Are you ready for a Taylor Swift renaissance? It looks like it’s coming, but we don’t know exactly when.
