Taylor Swift has been leading a secret life this year. She has all but disappeared from public view since her pre-Super Bowl Concert in February. In fact, USA Today reported February 5 that the mega superstar said as much to the 9,000-person crowd in Houston that they were attending her only scheduled performances in 2017.
“As far as I know I’m only doing one show in 2017, and as far as I know, this is that show. By coming to this show tonight, you are attending 100% of this year’s tour dates,” Swift said.
But it’s more than that. The star seems to be living completely under the radar. The Washington Post stated it best in a report filed today.
Afterward [her February concert], her radio silence was immediate. No red carpets, no strolls down the streets of New York, no paparazzi photo shoots while leaving the gym. There was even a social media blackout, save for two Instagram posts to plug new singles from her friends Lorde and the band Haim. Swift was far off the grid, unusual for a superstar usually so thoroughly present in the public consciousness.
