Taylor Swift's belly button, like the existence of post-1994 Tupac, has been a cultural question mark. There have been sightings, surely. But the public wondered how it was possible for someone who loves crop tops so much to keep her naval so shrouded. The world now has its answer. On Friday, Taylor posted a photo of herself in a real bikini, revealing herself to be human with a belly button. Naturally, the attention and the sunlight proved a lot for the naval, which quickly retreated to the safety of oxford shirts and old-timey swimsuits. Until next time.
