Here’s to Taylor Swift making life bearable for her fans this year. The “Willow” singer, 31, ended 2020 by sharing a photo of herself wearing a full, realistic bear costume. The bear’s “head” fits over her own as a hood, causing Taylor to look like she’s peeking out of its mouth. Why Taylor has gone Midsommar chic is unclear. But you know what? Her photo is the perfect, bizarre way to end a truly chaotic year.

Taylor acknowledges that her tweet, sent on the morning of December 31, isn’t exactly normal. “bye 2020, it’s been weird,” she jokingly captioned the photo. We rarely see photos of Taylor on social media, and she’s delivered this! Her devoted fans, of course, are reading into the post for theories about her music. One fan pointed out that you can see 13 teeth on the bear’s head — 13 being Taylor’s lucky number, of course.
Another fan tweeted that Taylor posted a photo of herself wearing a teddy bear costume in 2012, which is the year Red was released. Taylor is currently re-recording her music. So, is she implying that she’s re-releasing Red next? These are all far-fetched theories, but Swifties all know that Taylor loves to drop subtle hints. Anything’s possible in 2021, we guess.
Taylor had a busy 2020. The Grammy winner released not one, but two surprise albums, just seven months apart: Folklore and Evermore. Some fans believe that the mellow, woodsy albums are her best work yet, and are aching for more. Taylor squashed rumors in December 15 that she had a third secret album called Woodvale dropping soon. Turns out, that was just the working title for Folklore before she finalized a name!
