The game’s afoot, Taylor Nation.
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s always liked puzzles, we were already asleep when the Swift sense told us to get up. The Queen of Sparks is teasing the fans with the second clue. My best guesses after the jump.
It should be obvious by the phrase Cluuuuue number twooooo….. that the number five is the big one. Taylor doesn’t just repeat the “u”, the “o” and the dot “.” five times. Knowing how careful she is with grammar and punctuation you know she’d rarely do that without purpose. Plus the fact that it’s 5 o’clock on her phone and that there’s five items in the picture: a hand-drawn postcard, Olivia the cat, a polaroid camera and two small envelopes.
All this points to the album that I’m dubbing The Fifth Of Its Kind because I like to come up with nicknames that sound particularly ominous for no reason. The hand-drawn postcard depicts New York. So does the cat. Olivia is named after Olivia Benson, a fictional police officer of the Manhattan SVU in the TV show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit which takes place in New York City.
An even more revealing clue is the fact that Taylor invited radio personalities to her home in New York but nobody has said why. That means she’s getting ready to release something in radio. Odds are good now that we’ll get a single released on August 18, but that’s still me guessing and not a confirmed fact.
Taylor’s next appearance is on August 10 at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards as a presenter. T-Swizzle is nominated for Teen Choice Female Artist, Choice Country Artist & Choice Smile. Don’t forget to vote for her. E! Online has reported that the Princess in Red will be performing at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards on August 24. Taylor will be playing new music at the iHeartRadio Music Festival on September 19, as confirmed by a source from Clear Channel, Tom Poleman.
