What If Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss Are Kissing Partners? WHAT IF!

Not that we needed a blurry photo to spur our collective Taylor Swift-related lesbian fantasies, but that blurry photo has arrived to stoke the weird flames in all our hearts:

How many blonde thin women can there be, really? It must be them!

How many blonde thin women can there be, really? It must be them!

Taylor’s Instagram confirms that she makes a habit of looking adoringly at her “best friend.” We can see your longing, Taylor, and we encourage it.


From the picture, it’s impossible to tell that the subjects are actually Karlie and Tay, and also difficult to see whether the two women are actually kissing. As Gawker reports, it’s likely Taylor went to the 1975 concert to see some boy who likes her (the band’s lead singer, Matt Healy). Taylor has also denied the rumor. But listen: what if? What if Taylor has decided to fill the blank space on her list of lovers with a woman, like Karlie Kloss, or you?

If nothing else, there are two pretty blonde women kissing and probably scissoring. It just might not be Tay and Karlie, and it might not be anyone in this picture. No matter what, you go, girls.

  1. feel like this could have been a hi-def video of them with their tongues down each other’s throats and the headline would still be


  2. I’ll be the first to say that Taylor Swift as a brand or whatever has become more tolerable to me as a pop star than a country star.

    As for this “news”, I can only imagine people losing their fucking minds. I mean, I have to wonder if Tegan and Sara had any influence in this because they spread the gay like no one’s business! Bless them and their queer glittery magic.

    Coclusion: I’d ship this like Fed-Ex!

      • Girl, Taylor Swift finally got me with this new album. She finally got me. I got the Swift-itis. If there is cure keep it to yourself for awhile.

        I don’t know if I buy that she’s even a little bit queer but I will start actively praying for it if only because I’m sure it would piss off a sizeable amount of her fanbase(I’m petty like that) and the media who like to make her out as a boy-crazy psycho. Also, just because she looks damn cute with Karli.

        • Seriously I just ran this by my sister who likes her(?) anyway she was like, “What!?” Just on the idea so I’m with you on conjuring queer magic to make this a thing or something that is seriously being entertained by the masses.

          *~*~*~*queer magic arise!!!~*~*~*~*~

    • So we’re they friends like Lea and Dianna were friends? Is that how I’m meant to understand this?

      • Dianna Agron and ANYBODY sets off my alarm bells. You could stick her next to any girl I’d read far too much into it.

        • WHAT IS IT ABOUT HER THAT MAKES US DO THAT?! Because I do too. She just has this stench of gay that she cannot shake, and I love it.

          • lol stench of gay. You know that her nickname was the Pussy Bandit? I wonder what that stench actually is then…ahem…

        • Likewise. It’s the Agron Effect. Never in a million years would have expected “Love Story” Swift to ping my queerdar until she and Dianna became friends, and then suddenly Taylor is interesting [to me].

        • Totally, off the subject… Turkish, I love the Dead Like Me pic! One of the best shows ever and of course, short-lived. If I’m wrong and this is your usual work attire, more power to you!

  3. I’m wildly curious to know if anyone else getting the “Order Sushi Delivery” advertisement at the end of this article or is that just me?

  4. Players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate…

  5. This is all I want for Christmas. I mean LOOK at them. When I saw Tay in that black lacy number on the runway I nearly died. The two of them together…I need no confirmation. The hope alone is enough.

  6. It’s definitely them though? There’s no doubt that that picture is of them, the speculation is over whether they’re kissing.

  7. As Taylor’s opening song of 1989 states…

    “You can want who you want… Boys and boys / Girls and girls….WELCOME TO NEW YORK!”

    Soooooo…… She was foreshadowing!

  8. I mean… I thought Taylor’s true preference was obvious to all lesbians? Plus she’s been on Ellen’s show at least 20 times already. So good for her, her new album is awesome, so why not celebrate life by making out with Karlie!

  9. It would make sense why tswift’s relationships never work out… I used to have that same problem ;) Karlie might not be into the ladies, but don’t worry Taylor, there’s always Cara ;) and personally, I think her badass ways would make tswift’s music Amazing!

  10. ok but imagine how great t-swift’s “ladies are gr8” album would be — bring on the catchy queer love songs please

    (who knows if it’s real but i just really want to live in a world where taylor is singing about ladies)

  11. Is it really terrible that this was the final push for me to go out and buy 1989? Because that happened today and I’m only a tiny bit ashamed.

  12. I don’t think the question is whether it’s Taylor and Karlie. It’s definitely Taylor and Karlie. But are they making out? Let’s hope so.

  13. If the question is really not whether it’s them but whether they’re kissing…

    the most plausible alternative is that it’s loud so they’ve got their faces real close to facilitate conversation. I’ve done that at concerts. I didn’t find covering the other party’s ear with one hand and holding their hand with the other to be very effective for that purpose, though.
