Say what you will about the importance of celebrity at a time like the US election, but there’s no denying that their influence can affect millions of people.
Whether they’ve been outspoken about who they are voting for – Beyonce, Lena Dunham and Miley Cyrus are all firmly on #TeamHRC – or have remained more tight-lipped, famous faces are flocking to the polls and sharing selfies to encourage their fans to get out and vote.
But despite reminding her 92.9 million followers to “get out and VOTE”, there’s something suspicious about Taylor Swift’s voting selfie: she hasn’t specified whose side she is on.
Of course, the Internet just CANNOT DEAL with not knowing whether Swift wrote ‘Trump’ or ‘Clinton’ in the Blank Space of her ballot, so luckily, the conspiracy theorists have come out to play.
Surely, SURELY, Taylor Swift – a proud feminist – is with Hillary Clinton? Until you consider the fact that one of Taylor’s best friends, model Karlie Kloss, has been dating the brother of Ivanka Trump’s husband for FOUR YEARS.
Thankfully, a representative for Joshua Kushner (Kloss’ boyfriend) told Esquire he will not be voting for Trump and is a proud Democrat. Phew.
Other fans seem to think that Taylor’s feud with the famously pro-Hillary Katy Perry will get in the way of her voting Democratic.
@mylestanzer or maybe just hates Katy Perry THAT MUCH
