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.
