Taylor Swift, once thought to be the female version of notable belly button-less TV character Kyle XY, has finally gifted the public with the answer to one of the world's oldest, most puzzling questions: what is the meaning of life? LOL, JK, she actually just told BBC Radio 1 the reason why she decided to #freethebellybutton on her jealousy-inducing Hawaiian vacay with Haim last month, and, as expected, the answer is pretty badass.
"My security gets out binoculars and sees [the paparazzi on the boat] have a huge long-lens camera," she spilled. "At which point, we go back to the beach and we realize, ‘OK, so they got pictures of us in our bikinis, like I don’t want them to make like $100,000 for stalking us.'"
Taylor Swift: 1. Gross, Privacy-Invading Paparazzi: 0.
In case you forgot, Tay-Tay once famously told Lucky magazine, "I don’t like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing—you’re only seeing lower rib cage. I don’t want people to know if I have one or not.”
Midriff or no midriff, belly button or no belly button, I think we can all agree Taylor has been looking especially A+ lately. Also, we should all probably agree not to stalk her on the high seas, OK? OK.
