Taylor Swift 'Lucky' Cover Interview Reveals Why We'll Never Get a Glimpse of Her Belly Button


The fact that Taylor Swift is on another magazine cover isn't exactly news. Ever since the release of her latest studio album, 1989 , the 24-year-old singer has been everywhere (except Spotify). But there is something exciting about her latest appearance on newsstands: In her cover interview for the December/January issue of Lucky, Taylor Swift revealed why she never shows her belly button. Thank goodness Eva Chen allowed that to go to print!

Ever since Swift adopted her now signature crop-top and high-waisted skirt look for the summer of 2014, several news outlets have pointed out that, despite her belly-baring shirt choice, her navel is literally never visible. The Cut even published a piece entitled "There's No Proof Taylor Swift Has a Belly Button." Until now, we've had nothing to go on. And, as it turns out, Swift likes it that way. She told Lucky:

Hmmm, so it's a privacy issue. That kind of makes sense, in a weird way. Celebrities as visible as Swift don't exactly have an easy time keeping secrets. The public knows so much about her life: Where she lives, who her ex-boyfriends are, which of her songs are about those ex-boyfriends. So what if she doesn't want us to know whether her belly button is pierced, tattooed, or even real?? I think we'll all survive.
