Before she grew up and created her own star squad, Taylor Swift idolized another fabulous group of impossibly chipper singing-and-dancing celebs: the Teletubbies.
You remember them, right? They were those ultra-bright puppet-like creatures who pranced around in a lush field and watched children play on their belly screens, and everyone was straight OBSESSED because kids like trippy sh-t.
Well, guys, Tay was all over that show way before anyone else had even heard of it (naturally). So when she was a kid and dressed up as the yellow one (Laa-Laa, the perkiest of the bunch because of course), it left her pals at school plum confused as to why she was dressed up as some third-trimester mom from outer space. Yes, really.
Taylor shared this throwback pic (made extra vintage-looking by way of a black-and-white filter) of herself in costume way back when, writing, "When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it's before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you're dressed as a yellow pregnant alien."
She's been an enigma from the beginning. How can this costume possibly ever be topped? Maybe if she actually dressed as a pregnant alien this year? Just a suggestion, Tay.
