Taylor Swift was always ahead of the trends — even way back in elementary school! The singer shared an amazing throwback Halloween picture of herself dressed as the yellow Teletubby, but also revealed why the costume choice meant one awkward day at school.
She may basically rule the world these days, but back in her younger years, Taylor Swift had just as many scarring memories as the rest of us With Halloween days away, the 25-year-old let her fans in on one particular embarrassing moment from the holiday years ago, and shared a totally epic photo to go along with it!
In the black and white throwback pic, a young Taylor smiles and waves for the camera — dressed all out as Laa-Laa, the yellow character from Teletubbies! Amazing! Unfortunately, the “Wildest Dreams” singer was just a bit ahead of the game compared to the rest of her classmates when it came to popular television shows…because nobody knew who she was supposed to be!
“When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it’s before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you’re dressed as a yellow pregnant alien,” Taylor captioned the photo. Yiiikes, that definitely wasn’t the look she was going for! Well, anyone who might’ve made fun of her can simply eat their words now…Tay’s clearly won in the long run.
This year, Taylor will be able to spend Halloween with thousands of her friends, because she’s playing a show for her 1989 tour in Tampa, Florida on Oct. 31. It’s actually the last date on the North American date of her world tour, so we can likely expect some fun surprises for the audience — especially with Halloween coming into play. Taylor already has so many fun outfits that she wears on stage during the show…but will she add some costumes to the mix this weekend?!
After wrapping things up in the U.S., the singer will head to Asia and Australia before the tour comes to an end in mid-December. She’s already revealed her plans to take a well-deserved break after a whirlwind and incredibly busy year, and we’re already dreading it! Don’t do this to us, Taylor!!!
