Taylor Swift Will Reveal ‘Really Cool News’ in Live Chat Next Week
Taylor Swift would like to speak with you.
Not "now," impatient Swifties, but soon, it seems — considering country’s reigning princess will be launching a live webcast on YouTube Monday, Aug. 13 starting at 7 p.m. ET. if you have a question for T-Swizz, you can submit it, in real-time, so long as you have a YouTube account (a chat tool available to YouTube users will be running live during the webcast). But in between all those queries about hair-care routines and what Meredith the kitten ate for breakfast, it seems Swift will also be making a very-special announcement.
As she hinted in a video message posted today: “I want to share some news with you — some really cool news I’m not going to go into too much, but it’s cool.”
Maybe Swift’s finally going to share the recipe to caramel delight?
Or maybe she’ll reveal she’s actually a woodland fairy. Or Gelfling. Or Blood Elf.
Or maybe she’ll just confirm that she’s dating Conor Kennedy and millions of YouTube users will pull their sleeping bags over their heads and giggle until they pass out into bowls of Chex mix and gumdrops.
But if we were going to bet our signed ticket stubs on what Swift’s “really cool news” will be, we’d guess she’s going to announce a new record. In October 2011, the singer-songwriter told The Hollywood Reporter that she planned to release her fourth album by fall 2012, and even revealed that she’d written 25 songs at that point. that same month, a New Yorker profile of Swift included some info on what she was developing, and she told the magazine that Speak Now‘s follow-up was going to be gloomy. “They’re sad. if I’m being honest” she said of her new songs, a point she re-iterated in a later interview with Vogue. as she told the fashion mag in January 2012, she’d been feeling particularly inspired by love lost. “There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak, and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. The only way that I can feel better about myself — pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone — is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.”
Maybe she’ll announce a new record, maybe she won’t — but at least you can ask for the scoop yourself next Monday at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT. The livechat can be found on Taylor Swift’s official website and YouTube channel as well as Youtube.com/presents. Watch her message to fans below:
