Apparently there have been rumors that Taylor Swift might make her big comeback at the VMAs, which would dominate the headlines for a couple reasons — one being how long she’s been absent (and the fact that she just deleted her social media), and another being her supposed rivalry with host Katy Perry. But this week she bumped up her album release because the art leaked online, so obviously Stuff Is Cooking even if she is not actually on the VMA itinerary. A blogger can dream, though, right? It’s unlikely Taylor would appear on the red carpet — the shrieks of thousands of assembled fans would be a more alluring reintroduction to society, I imagine — but let’s ogle her past looks anyway. WHY NOT. It’s SUMMER. LIVE.
