For anyone out there that’s tired of the Taylor Swift – I’m just so humbled to be loved and appreciated – nonsense; you’re going to love this story. Anyone out there that actually loves and appreciates Taylor Swift is sure to be heartbroken.
The letters, many of which were unopened, were found by Kylee Francescan who was disposing of her own items at the dumpster at Granberry School, located off of Old Hickory Boulevard.
“I was like, ‘That’s weird,’” she told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates. “There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I didn’t know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I’m like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.’”
Many of the letters, which were from all over the world, were covered with pictures, hearts and sparkles were addressed to Taylor Swift Entertainment, a P.O. Box located at a strip mall at 242 West Main Street in Hendersonville.
Nashville’s News 2 Investigates reached out to Swift’s management team who said in a release they were unaware of the fan mail, but a spokesperson said they were very concerned about the matter.
“Taylor gets thousands of fan letters everyday and they are delivered to her management office. After the letters are opened and read, they are recycled,” spokesperson Paula Erickson said.
Erickson continued, “The only explanation for any letters being unopened would be that a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center. We sincerely appreciate Channel 2 bringing this to our attention, and we plan to immediately pick up the mail.”
For what it’s worth, I’m sure Swift gets a bazillion fan letters a month. Does anyone really think she reads them all? I mean come on… the president brags about reading a handful of letters a week as if that means he’s somehow “connected.” I’m sure Taylor’s handlers thumb through a presidential workload and pen responses for the singer to sign. The rest get “recycled.” At least they’re eco-friendly.
Something tells me that’s not the only thing looking a little green in the Swift camp today, though. Have they ever heard of a shredder; or garbage bags?
A great line from Crushable… and a bit of perspective…
There’s no one out there right now more complex than Taylor Swift. She’s a mystery wrapped in a Goosebumps book sitting atop a grandfather clock in an abandoned sausage factory. I can’t even begin to try to understand her. And I won’t. I would never be so bold as to try to brave the insides of her brain….
While this certainly isn’t Taylor Swift’s fault (she’s far too famous to deal with something as mundane as snail mail), it still doesn’t reflect very well on her just one week after sending Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to Hell. Right now she needs all the karma points she can get and tossing mail in the dumpster certainly doesn’t help with that. Then again she did visit a cancer patient in the hospital, so that’s like one billion brownie points right there.
