If you know a Swifty, you know they are hardcore freaking out right now, as Taylor Swift is apparently counting down to… something. Or is she?
Taylor Swift, the queen of intrigue, mystery, and hidden clues has always messed with her devoted fan club’s minds. The question is whether it’s her genius or if it’s just in the mind of her obsessed fans. (Trust me, I use that term lovingly).
Backtrack to the 2019 Taylor Swift calendar. Since its release, Swifites have been speculating about every little mark or “stamp” on the calendar.
#TS7 So Taylor Swift’s 2019 calendar has specific dates stamped off.
Is she really telling us the next lead single release dates is in May? Her next album is coming October 3rd.

Fast forward to this week and Taylor’s Instagram page. In the past, she has used Instagram to keep fans updated, while creating mystery and teases for her next big thing. It was a major tool for her as she was dropping her “Reputation” album and its singles. So it’s no surprise whenever she drops ANYTHING on Insta, fans go crazy. But she hasn’t been one to drop on subsequent days lately.
Until this week.
Nor does she often disable comments.
Until this week.
And THIS post on Sunday night:
Her next album is her seventh. And here’s a post with “7″ palm trees. Hmmmm….
Then came this later that night, with a “6” reference:
Did you miss the reference? She’s on the 6th stair from the bottom (of the photo… is that really the bottom of the staircase though?).
And there was THIS last night:
You caught the “5” reference, right? 5 holes in the fence? Also, there are 5 steps showing on the stairs behind her.
We’ll wait and see if a “4” reference pops up tonight.
But back to the calendar for a moment. For this weekend, there is a dried flower on the calendar.
Does this confirm anything? The theories are seriously running rampant.
The lead single off Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album will be released in the first week of March along with the music video and before the ELLE Magazines are unveiled (US & UK editions) both shot by different photographers. The magazines will be unveiled in mid-March. #TS7

My theory: Okay so in this picture there are 4 palm trees on the left (4 country albums). There are two palm trees on the right (2 pop albums). There is one large palm tree in the middle. This represents her new album. It’s gonna be a diff genre than anything she’s ever done pic.twitter.com/cVpc1mrFF0

So what’s your take? Is she just posting like a normal person and it’s being taken out of context? Is she teasing something bigger? Will there be new music this week? Or does Taylor simply get the last laugh?
Hate to say it… I agree with the latter. So…
Are You Ready for It?
