Taylor Swift Admits She Used This Powerful Body Part for Revenge

We are only now beginning to understand the great power contained within Taylor Swift's belly button. We've written before about how the star fastidiously keeps her navel hidden from view. But recently Swift unleashed her belly button upon the public like a carefully-deployed secret weapon for one important cause: Revenge.


On an afternoon in January Swift posted a photo on Instagram in which she posed in a bikini with members of the band Haim. Unlike her typical, 1950s-style waist-high swimwear, these briefs cut well below her waist, revealing what could be the first ever public sighting of Swift's navel. The world gasped.

Greetings from Maui! @haimtheband

But why? Why reveal it now? Swift explained her shocking choice on BBC Radio 1 interview yesterday.

Swift and her Haim besties were on a whale-watching expedition in Maui when they spotted a fishing boat half a mile away. Swift's security got out the binoculars and sure enough, they saw the "fishermen" holding a long-lens camera. They were paparazzi. And they'd gotten their catch all right.

We realize, okay, so they got photos of us in our bikinis. I don't want them to make a hundred thousand dollars stalking us -- for a bikini shot! So we're like, get up back on the bow of the boat, we're taking better bikini shots so they don't make as much money on theirs.

A preemptive strike of the belly! She posted that photo before the paps could sell theirs for a lucrative profit.

And now you know how much Swift's belly button is worth. In one swift (heh) upload she snapped about a hundred thousand dollars out of a photographer's grasp and struck one more victory on behalf of all the celebrities who just want to enjoy a little PRIVACY FOR ONCE IS IT SO MUCH TO ASK FOR?!?

It may be a long time before we see Swift's belly button again. Clearly it is too much for us to handle. She is wise to keep it under cover. Yet with each reveal it loses a little bit of its power.

Meanwhile we are left wondering, will the day ever come with Swift can harness the power of her navel for good? Revenge is great and all that. But imagine if we could convert that power into electricity and light all of New York City, since she's now its ambassador?

I'm just thinking outside the box here. But think about it: Swift could become our next great superhero, all thanks to her belly button.

Do you think Swift will wait a long time before revealing her navel again to the public?
