International Pop icon Taylor Swift is never not in the spotlight. With global fandom as big as hers, they are constantly watching every move she makes. Her recent New Year’s Eve Party though turned the headlights on her, as Taylor donned a beautiful, ‘Ariel, The Little Mermaid’ costume.
The New Year’s Eve Party
T-Swift’s party had its guests dressed as their favourite childhood heroes. It saw the likes of Actors Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively, who was dressed as ‘Dorothy’ from ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Taylor looked stunning in her beautiful mermaid costume. Her scarlet red hair was paired with scarlet lips and big blue eyes, not to forget the purple seashell-like upper wear. She had a cute crab sling-bag on her hip.
This is apparently not the first time that Taylor has been seen wearing a mermaid themed outfit.
The TS7 conspiracy
Most of the talk revolves around the clothing that Taylor had worn at two instances. She was seen rocking a camo jacket in a magazine that was released in November 2017. Another instance is in one of the bloopers behind the Netflix special stadium tour ‘Reputation’, where she was seen prancing around in a shirt with two mermaids.

Also, what adds to the mystery of TS7 is the fact that , ‘The Little Mermaid’ was released in 1989 , the same year that Taylor Swift was born and she even has an album titled ‘1989’, as one observant fan pointed out on twitter.
Fans have even taken to deciphering what ‘Mermaid’ signifies and what probably T-Swift is hinting about in her albums. One user on twitter, took the effort to Google the meaning and significance of ‘Mermaid’.
So if Taylor’s dropping hints through mermaids, all I’m getting is that TS7 is going to be romantic album- and I’m all for it 🙌🙌 pic.twitter.com/ES1FM5lR2D— Marg •Loves Tay so so so so so much• (@seagullswiftie) January 2, 2019
She came up with an interesting list of emotions it signifies. Beauty, Love and Mystery being the highlights of her search results. Well, if it’s going to be romantic, we doubt anyone wouldn’t be excited to see Taylor , tailor the album’s story eh! *pun intended*
Furthering the possible TS7 theme hint discussion, one Swift lover even connected the dots between Taylor’s ‘Reputation’ tour and the ‘Mermaid’ hint. This is what she said,
What does Ariel do? She transforms. What would happen after Taylor’s Reputation is cleared? She’ll transform!AASwiftie13 on Twitter
Turns out, one fan played Sherlock on Taylor’s posts and even found a picture of Taylor with flowers that resembled the ones from Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’. This is what she said:
First month of the year and my tweet made it to THREE (3) different articles omfg pic.twitter.com/iLwkVs17S5— 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚 ☽ (@soitfuckingoes) January 5, 2019
Yay or Nay?
While most fans are going berserk over the possible ‘Little Mermaid’ theme, the rest seem to think otherwise. Twitterati kept us on our toes with their reactions. Here’s a couple more:
I don't think ts7 is about mermaids. But it could possibly be about the sea. Taylor always loved the sea, her house in rhode island is even right on the coast.— Bree (@SwiftyAngel) January 2, 2019
People think these @taylorswift13 TS7 mermaid conspiracies are insane. But I would put nothing past Taylor at this point, her attention to detail and advanced planning is expert level.— Sierra Rose (@Sierra_PrimRose) January 3, 2019
T-Swift has been known to be very secretive about the themes of her upcoming albums. Dropping only a few hints now and then and building up the surprise, it’s no wonder Taylor has her fans gripped to her life.
