It certainly hasn't been hard to notice that Taylor Swift has been distant from all things social media, and press related as of late. She wasn't even live at the iHeart Radio Music Awards on Sunday to accept her award. She did however appear via video chat to share with us her new music video for the brand new "Delicate"
Washington Post was the first to note that the video itself might explain why she's being so distant. The song seems to hit at her bad reputation as of late and focus on her relationship with a guy who doesn't seem to care. In the video, he gives her a note that allows her to become briefly invisible and, results in her acting like her real self while no one can see her.
Swift was photographed just a couple of days ago with her boyfriend, which was a rare sighting of the couple, as they rarely go out n public. It might seem like that was exactly the point she wanted to make.
This might be the least Taylor has ever been in the spotlight, which is probably exactly what she wants at this point. Although it's likely there's no "probably about it"
Maybe she's using this time to focus on a more personal life. All the neigh sayers can hate all they want, although this is a new Taylor that we've never seen before and don't quite know how to handle. We can at least agree on this, she knows exactly what she's doing.
