There have been big concert tours in my lifetime. Each one had rabid fans doing crazy things. That being said, I don’t know if I can ever remember a more perfect synergy between an artist’s concert trek and crazy fans like the one on display this summer as Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour crisscrosses the country. One of my favorite people is a HUGE, unapologetic Swiftie. For example, when Taylor’s new version of “Speak Now” came out on Thursday night/Friday morning, she was there-listening start to finish-twice. She was up early to get the vinyl version at Target the next day. I think she’s been to 3-4 shows in different cities this summer. She’ll buy/create custom outfits or accessories. She buys merch from each show. However, she’s not into homemade body art (at least I don’t think so), so I don’t think this could happen to her.
While attending a recent Taylor Swift Eras Tour stop in Cincinnati, TikTok user @saccharinesylph wrote one of the lyrics from the song “You Need to Calm Down” on her chest. No problem, right? Well, she also forgot to take precautions from the sun’s rays. Uh-oh. The lyric? “Shade Never Made Anybody Less Gay.” (Though the writing says anyone instead of anybody.) Double uh-oh
I’m betting she now wishes she’d have been in more shade at the concert. Or maybe not. In this constant “look at me and my content” world we live in, this video has gotten almost 60,000 likes and 16.500 shares. I invite you to click on the video’s source and head to TikTok. The comment section on this is worth the price of admission.
