Taylor Swift Makes No Apologies for Dining in a Harness

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Swifties saw Taylor in a BDSM-esque accessory while dining in LA, and didn't hesitate to take the matter to Tumblr to talk it out in a safe space. They questioned why the pop star was wearing the harness, why it was on backwards, and why it's over a t-shirt–each adding an "I love you, Taylor" to the end of every sentence.

Taylor responded to the hysterics unapologetically. "I think you're ignoring a really important point here," she countered. "My harness and I are always ready for a zip line/rock climbing." Then, Taylor urged fans to properly prepare themselves for any spontaneous "extreme adventure." Google Trends, get ready for the harness spike of 2015.
