Taylor Swift Didn’t Come Out But She Sure Did Make a Gay Music Video

Taylor Swift sure did whip up our frenzied speculation that she was going to come out tonight with the release of her new music video. First of all, she showed up at the NFL draft in Nashville wearing a pansexual pride flag as a dress to talk to lesbian icon Robin Roberts who was wearing pantsuit, okay? And then she announced the new single was going to be called “ME!” and there’s a butterfly on the album cover and also the song is a collab with Panic! At The Disco pansexual heartthrob Brendon Urie. Gay, gay, gay, gay!

Alas! She did not come out!

But the music video, while cruelly heterosexual at the start, is gay as all hell. Rainbows, a thousand women in suits and ties, unicorns, cats on cats on cats. What’s that about?

Anyway, that song “Dress” from Reputation is still gay and you won’t convince me otherwise.
