The modern age is so replete with absolute nonsense, that sometimes lesser nonsense just sadly slips through the cracks, lost to time immemorial. For example, when I think of Taylor Swift, I think about the woman who gave the Tennessee Democratic candidates a leg up, and not of the girl who was– say– rumored to have traveled about in a suitcase in order to avoid the cruel, photo friendly gaze of the paparazzi. Well, that rumor, odd as it has been, turned out to be true. Zayn Malik, in a new Vogue profile, has confirmed the bizarre rumor while teasing the release of his upcoming album.
As written up in Vogue:
He seems more like an undergrad than an internationally swooned-over famous person. Though his small talk is a giveaway. “She was traveling around in a suitcase,” he says, eyes agog, of his pal Taylor Swift’s ability to avoid the paparazzi.
Eyes agog, indeed. Frankly, I have no reason not to believe this. Being known by everyone on the planet seems like something out of a hellish Twilight Zone scenario, and I don’t know what lengths I would go to for some random creeps to not photograph me entering my car which is, currently, when I feel the most peaceful and zen.
What do you think? Is Zayn telling the truth or is he, like the star of Ricky Gervais’ “Extras”, “just having a laugh”? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
