Taylor Swift Finally Clues Fans In to What’s Happening on Aug. 18
By Shannon Carlin
Taylor Swift felt she had kept fans waiting long enough and early this morning (Aug. 11) finally revealed what the heck is going on.
Swift revealed three clues last week — the first clue was an Instagram video of her repeatedly pushing an elevator button to the 18th floor, the second was her adorable cat Olivia Benson and the third was just the Yahoo! search bar — but today on Twitter she revealed that, with a little help from Yahoo!, she’s having a worldwide livestream for all her fans.
The event is set to take place on Aug. 18 at 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST in New York City.
In the tweet with a link to her website, Swift asked fans “Did you guess right?” along with the hashtag
#TaylorSwiftYahoo7days. So did you?

Swift is also calling on fans to join her at the livestream by signing up here for a chance to win a spot in the audience. Don’t win? She’s encouraging you to host your own viewing party. She’s even given you some custom invitations to choose from and promises she’ll be sending out tips on how to throw the very best Taylor Swift livestream party ever. We those tips will be make sure everyone feels 22 and let everyone know it’s B.Y.O.C – bring your own cupcakes, obvi.
Swift is still keeping mum about the itinerary of the party, but we’ll take a good guess she’s going to reveal details of her upcoming album and hopefully a new song.
In the meantime, Swift is gearing up for the release of her film The Giver. Though she’s not playing a singer in the new movie, that doesn’t mean she left all her musical talent at home.
As a new clip from the film shows, Swift gets a rather creepy piano lesson from Jeff Bridges, who also stars in the film based on Lois Lowry’s 1993 dystopian children’s novel.
Sure, Swift doesn’t sing, but she does do a bit of humming while playing just a little bit of piano.
Watch the clip, via Yahoo, below. And see the movie in theaters this Friday (Aug. 15).
