Taylor Swift just shut down a celebrity magazine with a single tweet.


Note to self: Don’t mess with Swift.

On Saturday night, OK! Magazine tweeted this breaking news:

Singer @taylorswift13 has made a ‘pregnancy announcement’!

Everyone picked out baby shower presents for Taylor as they waited for the story to load.

But, as it turns out, the story wasn’t about Taylor announcing she was pregnant. It involved the singer helping a couple to announce their pregnancy.

See what OK! did with those sneaky quotation marks?

Worse, the opening line of the story introduces Taylor – just in case anybody on earth doesn’t already know her – as Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend.

But magazines don’t get away with shit like that on Taylor’s watch.

And Taylor is always watching.

She tweeted her displeasure, via whale.


This isn’t the first time Taylor has lauded as a feminist role model, despite her original insistence that she would not describe herself as a ‘feminist’.

She admitted to The Guardian in an interview in 2014 that she was having a ‘feminist awakening’, and has defended Emma Watson’s HeForShe campaign and nailed her response to a sexist question on the red carpet. (The reporter said: “You’re going to walk home with a lot more than maybe just a trophy tonight. I think lots of men.” Taylor quipped back: “I’m not going to walk home with any men tonight. I’m going to hang out with my friends and then I go home to the cats.”)

As she reflects in her hit song ‘Shake It Off’, Swift has a reputation for ‘going on too many dates’: her list of exes includes such notable names as Harry Styles, John Mayer and Taylor Lautner, and she’s written songs about all of them. Swift is currently dating producer Calvin Harris.

Taylor has been the subject of many hilarious rumours over the years, including that she insured her legs for $40 million. With excellent humour, Swift posted this image on Instagram with the caption, “GREAT WORK, MEREDITH. I WAS JUST TRYING TO LOVE YOU AND NOW YOU OWE ME 40 MILLION DOLLARS.”

Well played.
