Where in the world is Taylor Swift? That’s the question on many fans’ minds lately after Taylor was a no-show at the Met Gala. The singer revealed that she was taking an extended hiatus after her 1989 World Tour. That means that she wasn’t making or releasing music of her own accord. But, that hasn’t stopped Taylor from co-chairing last year’s Met Gala and collaborating on other musical projects. The singer went back into hiding shortly after she was slammed for her high-profile relationship with Tom Hiddleston and she was exposed by Kim Kardashian on Snapchat.
Some fans assumed that Taylor Swift would come out of hiding to show up for Monday night’s Met Gala. That wasn’t the case. This year Katy Perry was co-chairing the event. Did Taylor Swift not want to go because of their ongoing feud? Last year, Swift was everywhere. She was on the cover of Vogue. She even hopped out of her long-term relationship with Calvin Harris just to date Tom Hiddleston for a few short months.
Taylor Swift hasn’t been seen since January. Some fans claim that they saw Taylor driving around in Nashville. She is clearly working on some new music. How has Taylor managed to hide away from the public for so long? She only came out of hiding to perform her one and only live show of the year and to promote her new song “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” with Zayn Malik.
Fans have been freaking out on Twitter. They’re wondering where Taylor Swift has been all these months. Is she quietly living a new life? Is she working on a new album? They want to know what’s going on with their pop idol. Last year, Swift made all kinds of headlines at the Met Gala. She had a dance-off with Hiddleston, debuted her platinum blonde bob and grunge look, and capped off the night with pizza with the Haim sisters.
There’s a good reason why Taylor has avoided red-carpet events. She’s reportedly working on a new album, according to a recent report from Entertainment Tonight. The singer is going through a complex right now. She’s not sure what direction she wants to go in with her album. The insider noted that Taylor’s new album is expected to drop by the end of the year.
She’s recording music in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Her best friend and collaborator, Ed Sheeran, hinted in a BBC News interview back in March that she could drop a new album in time for the holiday season. “Christmas is the smartest time to release, because that’s when everybody buys records,” he told the BBC press at the time.
Taylor Swift probably wants the focus to shift on her music rather than her personal life. With all the headlines about her relationship and drama with Kim Kardashian last summer, it’s probably a wise decision. It’ll be interesting to see what direction Taylor Swift chooses to go in with her new album… and her next boyfriend!
