Sorry, the new Taylor Swift can’t come to the phone right now either. Why? She’s getting booed while attending her best friend’s wedding.
Amid one of the craziest weeks of her career, the pop star took a break from stirring internet frenzy to be a bridesmaid at the wedding of high school bestie Abigail Anderson.
For those who haven’t dedicated every waking moment to deciphering Swift’s lyrics, Abigail is the redheaded girl she sings about in “Fifteen.” Remember? The one who “gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind.”
Well, hopefully Swift left that part out of her bridesmaid’s speech, but she did look ever-dutiful on Saturday carrying Anderson’s veil before entering Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard.
Dressing very much like the old Taylor, the “Ready For It” singer wore a maroon floor-length halter gown with a sweetheart neckline. She paired the look with a bold red lip and a pendant necklace.
Given how everything Swift does these days is shrouded in secrecy, of course, die-hard Swifties jumped at the opportunity to catch a glimpse of their idol, and waited all afternoon.
But when their moment of glory came, bodyguards erected a makeshift screen to shield Swift from her adoring public and some paparazzi, as she exited the church and hopped in an SUV. That’s when the crowd’s temperament soured and the booing began.
“Taylor, we love you!” someone shouted. “We thought you loved your fans!”
“Very disappointing, not cool,” another fan chimed in.
Can we all just give the girl a break?
Watch the video above.
Correction: This story previously stated that it was raining the day of the wedding, but, according to weather reports, it wasn’t. Taylor Swift did apparently use umbrellas to hide herself from fans, though.
