Taylor Swift Lucky 2014 Belly Button


Taylor Swift is finally addressing the rumors surrounding her constantly hidden belly button. The singer is featured on the cover of the December/January issue of Lucky magazine, where she opens up about why she strategically keeps her belly button under wraps.

Swift’s fondness for crop tops has prompted many fans and media outlets to wonder why the lower portion of the pop star’s stomach continues to remain concealed. But Swift’s explanation is rather simple. “I don’t like showing my belly button,” she tells the magazine. “When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing — you’re only seeing lower rib cage.”

Swift seems to be relishing the hype surrounding her hidden belly button. “I don’t want people to know if I have one or not,” she says. “I want that to be a mystery. As far as anyone knows based on my public appearances, they haven’t seen evidence of a belly button.” The pop star even fuels the fire by noting, “It could be pierced. They have no idea. If I’m going to get some sort of massive tattoo, it’s going to be right next to my belly button because no one’s ever going to see that.” And there you have it. What do you think of Swift’s explanation?
