The seven-time Grammy award winner Taylor Swift is known for her unyielding dedication to her fans, in addition to her amazing music talents. With the release of her newest album on October 27, 2014, called 1989, Taylor sent a secret message to her fans. In order to find out what that message is, you’ll need to do a bit of detective work.
Open the 1989 album booklet. You’ll notice some of the letters in the song lyrics stand out because they are in lowercase print. Write the lowercase letters down, and you’ll soon notice that they spell out short phrases that are associated with each track. Put all the phrases together, and it reads like a short story about a girl and boy who loved each other deeply, but couldn’t make it work.
In addition to the secret messages, Taylor included adorable Polaroid pictures with comments written in her own handwriting, photos, and more for her fans to enjoy. Go ahead, cut the pictures out and hang them up in your room, or put them in your smash book. They are that good. I know I did it, shout out to Susan McGalla for giving me the idea!
In typical Taylor style, she thanks her fans, aptly nicknamed Swifties, for giving her the courage to change into her own and the chance to come alive. She no longer thinks of herself as the girl who would never move to New York or cut her hair. And she knows now that it is possible to be happy in a world where she isn’t in a romantic relationship.
