Taylor Swift's Biggest Fan Is a Middle-Aged Man Looking to Sniff Her Hair
People can joke about Taylor Swift's love life as much as they want, but there is definitely one guy out there she is not interested in. After a questionably-motivated 39-year-old man won a contest to meet Swift, the radio station holding the contest cancelled it.
The contest was run by Boston radio station Kiss FM, which let different fans of the 23-year-old singer post photos of themselves and write why they should win. Anyone could then visit the Kiss website and vote for their favorite fan and whoever got the most votes won — or was supposed to. One fan was a man named Charles, who wrote on 4chan that he wanted to, "crush the dreams of these girls and give him a chance to make a complete ass of himself by blatantly just sniffing her hair with cameras rolling."
Charles, who refers to himself as a "fat old creep," enlisted the help of 4chan users to vote him into first place, so he could sniff Swift's hair. They all came to his aide and Charles went from 25th place to first. That's when Kiss FM decided to cancel the contest. In a statement on their website, the radio station explained their reasoning:
"Disappointingly, we have determined that the integrity of the "Taylor Swift's Biggest Fan" contest has been compromised. In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologize to all of our loyal listeners who have participated."
Sounds like Kiss got Swift out of an awkward situation, but if I were her I'd keep an eye on my hair in Boston.
