Taylor Swift Chose Nashville Over the Met Gala for a Super Exciting Reason
While today’s top celebs stepped out in all of their fashionable glory for this year’s Met Gala — providing us with glimpses of breathtaking style and plenty of opportunities for hilariously snarky memes — there were a few notables who were totally MIA. Kanye West was reportedly on daddy-duty and Beyoncé is busy making twins, but fans were still left wondering why Taylor Swift was a no-show. Well, it turns out that the singer decided to skip this year’s event, choosing a trip to Nashville over the Met Gala for a super exciting reason.
News has been buzzing for a while now that the “Bad Blood” singer is toiling away on new music, with Ed Sheeran even confirming the rumors and speculation sparking about a possible return to the genre of country.
That possibility seems to have been strengthened somewhat by the fact that Taylor chose to stay in Nashville instead of flying to New York to attend this year’s Met Gala — and her reason for doing so was apparently all about the music. Yep, the singer opted to stay put and focus on her new tunes rather than fuel the publicity fire with an appearance at one of the industry’s hottest annual events.
Although we’re sad that we didn’t get to see whatever surely fab outfit Tay would have chosen for this year’s theme, her choice to stay deep in the country scene just gives us even more hope that we’ll be getting a new album sooner rather than later. *fingers crossed*
