Taylor Swift isn’t just a pro at collecting celebrity boyfriends — the “Shake It Off” singer also does an egg-cellent job collecting the Easter Bunny’s hidden treats.
According to MTV News, 25-year-old Taylor Swift proved that she’s still a kid at heart by sharing two Instagram videos that show the singer hunting for Easter eggs with her 23-year-old brother, Austin. As you watch the video below, you’ll be surprised to see that usually-sweet Taylor isn’t smiling and prancing around her family’s garden like a Spring pixie — instead she’s beating her brother with her Easter egg bag and creeping around like Gollum in search of his Precious. Much like the music biz, the Easter egg game is a cutthroat world.
Taylor’s mother can be heard chuckling and saying that “The struggle is real” in the background of the video above.
In one of her video’s Instagram captions, Taylor Swift bragged about collecting “like a hundred” eggs. She also compared her sibling rivalry with Austin to the relationship between Ross and Monica on Friends.
“When your parents arrange a competitive sibling Easter egg hunt, failing to take into account that their children are Ross and Monica.”
Whenever Taylor Swift gets competitive, her claws come out, and they’re much sharper than her cat Meredith’s leg-ruining talons. According to Us Weekly, Taylor is also very competitive with fellow singer Katy Perry. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the pop tarts’ already-testy relationship really soured after Perry tried to steal a few of Swift’s backup dancers.
Katy has called Taylor a “Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” and maybe there’s something to this description — Taylor’s Easter video proves that her mean girl side rears its ugly ahead whenever she’s competing with someone. It’s a good thing that Calvin Harris, Taylor’s latest celebrity beau, wasn’t around to witness Taylor’s brawl with her brother over chocolate bunnies.
However, Calvin’s Easter absence isn’t a sign that he and Taylor are already over — their relationship is in its infancy, so they’re probably not to the meet-the-parents point yet. According to E! News, Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift were last spotted canoodling at a Haim concert on Thursday. They reportedly wore matching leather jackets, and Taylor sat in Calvin’s lap at one point.
What do you think of Taylor Swift’s Easter egg hunt? Is it cool that the “Style” singer is so young at heart, or should Calvin Harris feel embarrassed that he’s dating a girl who beats up her brother to procure bright plastic eggs?
